Mahoneys Block Mounting Process


Step One

The first step to finding your perfect frame is visiting our store, or emailing us with the size of your image and any other requirements you have.


Our framer, Greg Mahoney, will assist you to design a frame that specifically suits your image. You can have as much or as little input in the process as you desire. We only use the best materials available to preserve your photos, as well as create a unique visual display.


We will also walk you through any additional options to enhance your artwork. You will have the options to choose your mat board size and colour, glass type and core backing.


Your frame will be made for you at our factory in Melbourne CBD. This process usually takes 3-5 days. Our framing craftsmanship ensures that your photos will be lifelong treasures. At Mahoneys, we only use acid free products that help prevent your image from deteriorating over time.


Your frame will be ready for collection from our store, otherwise we can deliver it straight to your home or office. Your framed image or artwork will arrive complete, with a hanging cord attached. This means that it will be ready to hang and you can attach it to your walls as soon as it arrives.

Frame Collection of the Month

Our Tasmanian Oak collection is one of our most popular and versatile ranges. It features earthy tones and resilient natural timbers, making it an ideal everyday frame that can be adapted to multiple interiors.

The collection features eighteen styles, with width options of 2cm, 4cm and 6cm. The oak based finish of this range also comes in varieties of tan, mocha, beige and dark beige. In addition, these frames are sourced from sustainable Australian forests, making them environmentally friendly

Is Block Mounting Right for You?

Block mounting is a great way to showcase your treasured possessions, while ensuring they are kept in tact and secure. One of the biggest practical advantages of block mounting is that it’s highly light weight. This means that you will have more options when selecting wall fasteners. It will also be easily transportable and you won’t need to use glass. So, if you’re looking to frame an image inexpensively and have the option of portability, block mounting is perfect for you.

The only drawback is that block mounting does not have the same preservation compared to other framing types. If you are framing a high value image then you should choose with conservation in mind and head towards our art framing options. But, if you’re wanting a cheaper and portable option, then block mounting is ideal for you. If you know you want a block mounted image for your home but haven’t found the perfect print, take a look at our extensive collection of prints online.

What Are My Block Mounting Options?

We can block mount your treasured items to a Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF), a gatorboard or a foam core board. These boards create a stunning visual display. They create a contemporary look, while uniquely presenting your images at a reasonable price.

A Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is the cheapest option, but it is also the heaviest. This can lead to challenges when hanging it. On the other hand, a foam board doesn’t have the same rigidity and may have the tendency to curve. But, it is extremely light and portable. Lastly, a gatorboard is slightly more expensive than the other two options. However, it has extreme rigidity and is guaranteed to stay flat over time.

Our Featured Framing Project

Commercial Framing and Printing for WeWork

Mahoneys Framing has provided art framing services for numerous businesses in the Melbourne district for over forty years. We pride ourselves on servicing a wide range of clients, from companies, galleries, artists to photographers. We were recently asked to complete framing services for renowned company WeWork, a community driven business with worldwide services.

Mahoneys Framing completed printing and framing for fifteen of WeWork’s exclusive images. This was an urgent request, which was put in only days before their opening launch on Bourke St. After printing, we carefully framed each of these 100cmx100cm prints with our Tasmanian Oak range.

We are proud that our effort has been recognised by WeWork, who say that they “could not recommend Greg and his team from Mahoneys Framing more highly.” WeWork invites anyone who is interested in our services to browse the framing work at their company in Bourke St.
