We hate to waste anything at Murrays so we make frames in a range of sizes out of our offcuts. These pre-made frames are made in a range of standard sizes. Visit in store to see our current availability. Find custom framing a bit out of your budget? We don’t mind if you bring your own frame, we can still help you choose the right mat colour, cut it to fit and assemble it all for you, ready to hang on the wall.
We can custom cut mat board from a wide range of colours to suit pre-existing frames. Our computer controlled mat cutter can handle multiple steps, a range of shapes including rectangle, oval and circle, ornate corners, v-grooves and arrays of small windows. We can provide mat board, foam core and self adhesive foam core by the sheet, and bags of acid free mat offcuts which are useful for people who want to mount their own photographs or artworks. They are also handy for scrapbooking.
Restoration & Cleaning
Although we cannot cut old glass or cut down old picture frames, we can refresh your existing frames with new glass and mat board, a good clean and touch up chips and scratches. See our blog article about mould here.
Our helpful team will guide you through the process to have your item measured and quoted using the most suitable materials for the job. For an obligation free quote for custom framing, come in and see us at 485 Ruthven Street, Toowoomba.
Quotes for framing cannot be provided over the phone or via email as these rely on the selection of materials, framing style and specific measurements for your order. Due to the time that is required to quote on a custom framing job, when planning your visit please allow plenty of time (at least 30 minutes) to help you make the best choice for your job.
We offer a range of deep rebated mouldings suitable for framing three dimensional items such as souvenirs, family heirlooms, war memorabilia, collectables, dimensional art, retirement gifts and other sentimental objects, books, sporting memorabilia and jerseys. In the past we have framed a diverse collection of unique objects and combinations of items with images and text displayed within the same frame. Our framing processes are reversible and archivally sound, achieving a professional finish without making permanent changes or damage to your items.
The owner of Murray’s Art & Framing, Sue McMaster is from a dressmaking and textiles background and brings to our framing workshop a love and wealth of experience when it comes to handling your Embroidery, Tapestry and Cross stitch pieces. We treat each order with the care and respect they deserve, offer lacing services and suggesting the appropriate style to beautifully frame and protect your textile work.
Glass cut to size
We can cut new glass to size. Sorry we don’t cut old glass or cut down old frames but we are happy to give you advice on how to make the most of the frames you’ve got. For the carpenter or competent wood worker we also sell mouldings by the length.
For your framing project we can recommend UltraVue® UV70 Glass, a virtually invisible, anti-reflective surface for truly amazing clarity, and can provide glass alternatives like premium clear acrylic to reduce overall weight of oversized frames.
