Picture framing services

Post by gabby78 » Thu, 15 Jul 2010 7:33 pm

Hi,
Can anyone recommend a reputable picture framing service here in Singapore (that doesn't charge an arm and a leg)? We have some large prints that we wish to have framed. Any advice would be much appreciated.

They cost an arm and a leg, so better do it yourself :lol: I had mine done, and they charge European price for poor quality work. Check out the frames in Ikea. Otherwise there is a little place on Paye Lebar road, opposite Just Anthony antique shop, which will be cheaper than the City. You will see the hawker food stall and a motor bike shop, its in between.

There are like two places in Holland Village, 2nd floor. I framed some stuff over there few years back and it was not that expensive IIRC.

I forgot to mention that the framing material I purchased was made in Sweden, Aluminium with coloured finish. Wood will be cheap here!

I did a lot of work a few months back trying to find the best deal for framing...I have the business card at home, will search it out.

E-frames or something they were called, a European couple who collect and deliver, very convenient.
