What would you save first in a fire? The most common answers are photographs, artwork and keepsakes. But how many people have special memories, family heirlooms or beautiful paintings stashed in a closet, under the bed or in a file box? Think about framing your treasures now before it's too late. Sadly, we've seen too many valuable items damaged or destroyed while in storage.

Worse yet, we visit many homes only to discover framed pieces that have never been hung. They're still propped on the floor against the wall or leaning on the mantle.

  • Is procrastination preventing you from framing all of the pieces you want to frame?
  • Are you dreading the wall of samples, afraid of making the wrong choice?
  • Is indecision about WHERE to hang your framed art stopping you in your tracks?
  • Are you uncertain about HOW to hang your framed art?

Don't worry! Whatever your story, we're here to help you with our unique Picture Panache custom framing process. We'll provide top-notch, professional recommendations and guidance so that you are assured your piece is showcased to best advantage.

Let us create a total look that takes your art and wall décor to a whole new level. There are so many options!

  • Beautiful moulding collections, featuring the most current and innovative designs
  • Fillets, bevel accents, stacked frames and extenders
  • Extensive specialty mat selection, 100% cotton rag, fabrics, textures & much, much more
  • Complete line of specialty glass and acrylic
  • Multiple, Oval or Circle mat openings
  • V-Grooves and specialty mat corners
  • Hand wrapped fabric mats, liners & fillets
  • French details (hand lined with watercolour ink, gold leaf and marbled papers)

Custom Design Mirrors / Bulletin Boards & Magnetic Boards

  • Why accept the boring, standard mirror clipped or glued to your wall?
  • Why settle for faux wood (plastic) framed mirrors that are not quite the right size?
  • Why look day after day at an ugly, office-supply-store bulletin board or magnetic board?

At Picture Panache Framing & Design we love to help you mix and match frames, fillets, extenders & mirrors, magnetic or cork surfaces to create the right combination for you. With exactly the right finish and exactly the right size, you won't see anything else like it at your neighbour's house or dentist's office.

Repair & Restoration

We offer:

  • FREE Inspections
    • Our clients invest in quality frames. In order to protect your investment, we provide a FREE inspection once every five years for pieces we've framed. During that visit, we'll disassemble, inspect for condition, clean the inside of the glass and reassemble.
  • FREE Visual Inspections
    • We welcome anyone with works of monetary or sentimental importance to prevent possible damage by booking an appointment for a FREE visual inspection. Unfortunately, not all framing businesses take seriously the need to keep up-to-date with current best practices. We provide knowledge of proper conservations techniques.
  • Glass Replacement & Minor Frame Restoration
    • Accidents do happen and on occasion you'll find you've scratched a frame or broken the glass. We offer minor touch-ups on some finishes and would be happy to help with any glass replacement.
  • Reframing Packages
    • Over time, our tastes often change. By altering a mat colour or selecting a new moulding, we'll help you transform your piece, so you can enjoy it all over again. Reframing can enhance any piece, so you can see it in a whole new light. We're happy to help with partial or total reframing packages.

If it's important to you, it's important to us. Just ask! Click here to book your private appointment. (Daytime, evening and weekend consultations are available for your convenience).

In-Home Consultations

  • Have you ever stood in a framing shop trying to describe with hand motions the exact shade of green on your living room walls?
  • Or have you ever had something framed and then found it really didn't look as well as you'd hoped once you got it home?
  • Have you ever struggled carrying your artwork into a framing shop, only to stand around awkwardly waiting your turn in line?
  • Do you have artwork or photographs you've been meaning to frame, but have been just too busy to get around to it?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you'll appreciate our Picture Panache home/office consultations. This special and unique service makes it easier for you to get exactly what you're looking for. There is never only one right way to frame a piece and by inviting us into your home or office to discuss your framing needs, you can avoid expensive framing mistakes. Rest assured that you've finally found a way to get the colour, finish and proportions right the first time. Oh! Plus, while we're there, we'll take the responsibility for safely wrapping and transporting your artwork for framing.
