Natural Edge creates custom made frames with a difference.

We are professional framers offering distinctive choices in framing styles, materials and techniques.  From natural timber frames to moulding profiles, conservation framing, canvas stretching and object boxes, we can provide many options.  Please scroll down to discover our range of services, artistic approach and framing ideas. We invite you to contact us any time to organise a quote and discuss your requirements.  

 

Natural Timber Frames – Our speciality is making frames using West Australian native timbers that are accessed from industry off-cuts.  The timbers include Jarrah, Marri Red Gum, Karri, Sheoak, Tuart, and Blackbutt.  Our live edge frames are our most popular choice however we also make the more traditional straight edge design finished in either a rustic or refined look.  A selection of oils, waxes and varnishes of various grades are also used on either the frame face or edge, or both.

Prefabricated Moulding Frames –  Natural edge has a large range of profile mouldings available, all ready made for a quick turn around.  There are a wide variety of colours and textures to choose from if your piece needs to match certain themes and decor.  We can also use lightweight acrylic glass that looks just like normal glass which allows us to go really BIG!

Conservation Framing  –  

We offer the choice of conservation grade framing which includes acid free mounts, matting and backing boards.  Archival glazing choices are also available to reduce the effects of harsh UV light.  Conservation framing also allows for the removal of pieces from frames if a new frame is desired.  Whether conservation grade is requested or not we always follow the technique of taping timber rebates to protect art work from tannins staining.  These practices will keep your precious art work and photos in pristine condition for years to come.

What ever your framing requirements are we strive to meet your highest expectations.

 

One Stop Shop  –  As well as being framers we offer something extra.  We have our own online gallery of images from which to choose a special piece for your home or office.  The images can be prepared as prints or canvases, as well as wall feature designs.  For example, diptych or triptychs for that odd shaped space in frames that suit your room colour themes & furnishing.

 

Photography Services  –  If its a family portrait or wedding service you need photographed, we offer both in the spirit of relaxation!   We have the experience to provide a comprehensive result in the most beautiful of settings at very competitive rates. Of course packages include discounts on framing if you choose us to undertake both services. 

Photo Finishing  –    

If you simply want to display your photos without a frame we can also mount photographs on card.  Mounting pictures on a backing board and window card can be convenient because it suits smaller spaces and budgets. We offer competitive prices for mounting one or many images, just ask for a quote. 

Example of mounted photograph on a cutting board next to a cutting knife and steel ruler.

We can also shrink wrap mounted photos for protection, easier storage and freighting.

Example mounted photograph wrapped in shrink wrap.

Photo Restoration  –  We also have the skills to restore your old photos that have seen the ravishes of time.  The process involves either carefully scanning or photographing the original and restoring the image digitally.  With the digital file we can then produce a print in any size and on any medium.  Our aim is to refresh an image and return its original integrity.  

 

Renting  –  If you have a need to add to your home decor, for any reason, we can help.  We offer a competitive rental service of framed images short or long term for your own home, investment property, office meeting spaces or Air BNB.
