“As an artist that just moved into Parksville it was important for me to find an art framing gallery that would be able to frame personal art as well as future artwork for sale. The owner Patrick was amazing. He listened to what I needed, made good suggestions and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend this place.

Custom Framing

Custom framing, glass cutting, mat cutting, and frame repairs

We offer custom framing with hundreds of frame options from Larsen-Juhl, Roma Moulding, and more. From basic metal frames for a tight budget to beautiful hard wood and leather show pieces. Prices for custom frames start at $50, and re-purposed frames are often available for those on a tight budget or strict deadline. Please expect up to 2 weeks for a custom frame from the order date.

Mats are cut on site using a specialized CNC machine. Many colors in stock and thousands more can be ordered for whatever shows your art at it’s best. Replacing an old mat can breath new life into a classic frame. All mats we carry are acid free and 100% Cotton based mats are available to ensure no damage to priceless art over time.

We have several options for glass, most in stock and cut on site. From basic budget options, to virtually invisible plexiglass. Some of our most popular include UltraVue and AR70 glass, both provide 75% UV light absorption to prevent fading and are virtually invisible. Museum grade plexiglass is available as a special order for the most valuable of pieces. For more information on our glass options please visit Tru-Vue and GroGlass websites.
