Framing Paintings

Post by maven » Wed, 27 Jul 2005 12:43 pm

On a recent trip to Hanoi, I bought myself a load of paintings. Now I would like to frame them up. As this can be expensive, I would like to ask for recommendations for good, reasonably-priced frame makers. I've considered the option of getting cheap frames from Ikea but some of my paintings are in odd sizes and will not fit.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

Angie at Framing Angie's in Holland Village is expensive, but she has done most of my framing because she is just so darn good. If you have a lot of pieces call and make an appointment and don't even think about going on the weekend. I also like Dora at Chong Hwa (sp?) also in HV in the back. People swear by Ghim Mo too. Good Luck.

Thanks for the suggestions.

beenhere10years> how much does Angie charge for say an A3 sized painting? I may just pay more to frame for one or two of my paintings that I really like.

Hi Maven,

Really impossible to tell you a price -- there is such a huge range depending on thickness of the frame, if you put it on a background of silk, glass, etc...

The ballpark would be $75 to $150 (?).

Just go and see, she has lovely things in her shop and she's a pleasure to deal with. :)

Thanks all for your recommendations. I made a trip down to Framing Angie today. She was talking to a client and I was told to come back 45mins later. I did ask her assistant for a rough estimate for framing my painting though. I was quoted $200. Ouch. So I made my way down to Bras Brasah, checked out a few shops and found someone who could do up a frame I liked- for $25. I still have four more paintings to go.

Will probably check out Chong Hwa and Ghim Moh as well. Thank you all once again! :D

You can try sam's framer at Blk 88 Zion road (near to zouk).
Tel : 68363670
Alot of Art gallery use him for framing. So his price should be reasonable.

Your best place is out of the City, upper peya leba rd, just after tai keng gardens, on the hill, right hand side, coming from paya leba MRT you will see a couple of shops, one of them is cheap frames. A large frame 48" x 36" is only 100$ so A4 size I would guess about 15$
