Custom Framing

Custom Framing essentially involves designing a framing solution  for your artwork, memorabilia or Objet D’Art to your exact specifications. Working with you to choose the colours, styles, frame mouldings, mounts, glass etc that presents your piece in the way that you wish. We are able to meet any and all of your display requirements and offer guidance on the most appropriate products to use.


Our custom framing showroom has over 2,000 corner samples in the showroom and catalogs for those that we can’t squeeze in. We can offer you every style of frame available in the Australian market and if what you want isn’t available we may even be able to make one for you!

We offer a huge choice of mat boards to suit your work and your budget from museum quality ‘rag mats’ to more keenly priced white and black core boards and will discuss with you the various types of glazing available from standard glass and Perspex, to UV protection museum glass and plexi/glass hybrids.

We can also mount Fujiflex and Kodak Endura photographic papers used in professional photography.

What does it cost to frame a picture?
The price for a custom frame really depends on a number of different things, such as what style of framing you might like, what size you wanted to make it, what type of matboards you may want, and even what type of glass you might want. The choices and combinations are virtually limitless. We have also found that 99% of customers do not select what they originally thought would work. Most people find they can get a better idea of what they want when they bring it in. After that, we can work out some different options and prices for you to compare, so please bring your piece in for a free quote.

Because of our high volumes and storage capacity, Highly Strung is often able to offer you higher end materials at a reasonable cost, enabling you to ensure the longevity of your valuable pieces without ‘breaking the bank’.   Our consultants will be happy to discuss options and prices with you in the store.

No matter how simple or elaborate you want your custom framing to be, we will make your treasures look beautiful!
