Artwork Drop-off & Frame Fitment



    All of our frames are hand-made in South Africa to the highest standards using materials that are assured to present and preserve your artwork or photograph to highest visual and archival standards.


    Each frame is handcrafted and made to order by our experienced framing team at our workshop in Boksburg, East of Johannesburg. 

    Frame Moulds

    All of our frame moulds are profiled in house, and sourced from locally grown clear pine.


    Pine is a sturdy yet lightweight timber,  which has low impact on the environment since it is grown sustainably right here in South Africa and is therefore the perfect material to construct beautiful, environmentally friendly picture frames! 


    The addition of a matboard or mounting board to a picture frame can give it the distinct finishing touches it needs to accentuate the art piece or photograph.


    Here at Frames Online we use only Peterboro mat boards, a producer of acid free papers known for their exemplary performance and archival abilities. Peterboro boards are constructed to the strictest standards as set out by the Fine Art Trade Guild.


    For the glaze, a polycarbonate acrylic is used for its excellent visual properties, UV preservation performance  as well as its strength and rigidity.

    If you prefer glass glazing, we can fit your frame with glass, at special request, we do not however guarantee the shipment of that glass, although every effort to securely package it will be made
