Canvas Framing Melbourne

Canvas framing is an ideal choice for those wanting to enhance the appearance of their artwork. Most paintings on canvas are purchased as a “gallery wrap”. This is the default presentation of canvas images. By adding a framing around your canvas roll, it adds a professional appearance that also gives greater protection for your treasured image.

What Are the Advantages of Canvas Framing?

The Artwork is Highlighted and Visually Enhanced

Unframed Canvas May Have Nails, Staples or Paint Showing

Unframed Canvas May Require a Wire Attached to the Stretcher

Framed Canvas Can Increase Art Value and Selling Price

Mahoneys Canvas Framing 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 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 Canvas Framing Right for You?

For canvas framing, your roll of material must first be stretched. This means that your canvas roll will be stretched over a frame. Even if you do not get your image further framed, we would still suggest canvas stretching to increase preservation. After your canvas has been stretched, we can frame your image into floater box frames. These frames are generally preferred over traditional frames for canvas. This is because the art will not be obscured by the lip of the frame. Unlike traditional frames, canvas is mounted through the front instead of the back

Floater frames are a box shaped and attached with a gap of ¼ inches to ½ an inch. The gap gives the appearance that the canvas is floating in the middle of the frame, creating a modern and contemporary design.

If the canvas is stretched and you are pleased with how it looks, then you can display it unframed. However, we would suggest getting a floater frame because it provides an extra preservation quality for your artwork. It not only protects the corners and edges of the piece, but also protects against structural warping that stretched canvas can cause over time. These frames can also complete the look of the artwork, while making sure nothing gets obscured, such as the artist signature. In addition, the floater frames have an aesthetic benefit and bring a tasteful addition to any living space.

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.
