The Framemaker has over thirty years experience of providing picture framing services to the artistic community. We pride ourselves on our level of expertise, attention to detail, and using the very best materials available. Our framing consultants have worked with many artists and photographers to help them create the finished look for their artworks. Our skilled craftspeople take great care with every item to deliver a truly unique product that is built to last and be enjoyed for many years.
OUR FRAMING PROCESS
Contact us or visit one of our showrooms to discuss your art requirements with our experienced framing consultants. We also stock a great collection of readymade frames that are available off-the-shelf at very competitive prices.
2.Choose Your Look
Our framing consultants will help provide the finished look for your artwork. We stock a large selection of picture frame mouldings that range from traditional to contemporary styles. All our mouldings are sourced from the highest quality collections. In addition, we have an extensive range of mountboard colours.
All our frames are made in our framing workshop in Carrigaline by a staff of skilled craftspeople. They use the highest-quality materials, and serious attention-to-detail, to complete your artistic experience.
Call in-store to collect your framed artwork. As our work is bespoke, there is typically a turnaround of five to seven working-days between dropping your item in-store and it being ready for collection. Our framing consultants review the finished piece with you.
MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES
Our frame mouldings are sourced from the highest quality international collections. All our mouldings are made of solid wood and feature a range of colours, finishes, and dimensions. Each moulding is specifically cut and joined to create a bespoke product.
We have an extensive range of mountboard that varies based on colour, style, and texture. Each mountboard is specifically cut to suit your requirements. All of our mountboards are acid-free and conform to the highest conservation standards.
Glass is a crucial piece in framing, protecting the artwork within. We use top quality 2mm float glass as standard. We also stock specialist glass such as Artglass. Artglass is ideal for protecting valued artworks and limited edition prints.
BACKS & FINISHING
We consider the back of the frame to be as important as the front. Brown kraftliner or white foam core is used to the cover the back of the artwork and gummed tape is used to seal the frame. This protects the artwork from moisture and dust.
Each frame is fitted with cord hanging that is customised for the size of the frame. Smaller frames feature screw eye hanging, while larger frames are fitted with d-rings.
This framing technique ensures that an artwork or collectable is properly protected from damage in a fully reversible way. Conservation methods and materials are used, such as UV protecting glass, acid-free mount board and backs.
We have framed all sorts of objects and memorabilia, from skis to musical instruments. Typically we use a box frame technique for such 3D objects.
We specialise in framing jerseys from all varieties of sports. We can also include medals or other memorabilia alongside your jersey.
PRINTING & CANVAS
With our advanced printing service, we can print fine art prints or photographs onto a range of papers and canvas. For canvas prints, we also provide a canvas stretching service.
