Welcome to Printroom Editions
>01.03.2013 With the launch of PRINTSHOP in late 2011, PRINTROOM EDITIONS installed framing facilities so that the entire process from image capture through to printing and preservation framing could be performed in house with a consistent level of expertise. Since then, there has been an increasing demand from artists to provide additional framing services. Much of 2012 therefore was spent further equipping the framing work shop to facilitate these new services including the making of canvas strainer frames, canvas stretching, and canvas floater framing. The floater frames are hand made from Tasmanian Oak and finished in a variety of colours and coatings. Pricing for these services is available now - just call me to discuss your needs. In the coming weeks the website will be updated with further details of these services, including an image gallery of work recently undertaken. Please stay tuned!

Forty framed works from the online gallery were on show for 2 days only. We had an amazing attendance, and the works were well received with almost half selling on the night.
