Mahoneys Framing did a fantastic job framing our new Melbourne Map series for the lobby of Causeway 353 Hotel on Little Collins St……From the quality of material used to delivering ahead of time , dealing with Greg and the team was a great experience….Thank you !!

-Mete Atakuman

Brilliant results with honest and approachable service. Greg and his team worked are a rare find. They worked tirelessly on our massive 3m x 1.5m custom piece, which we commissioned for a major national project. Thank you so much, Greg! You’re an absolute legend!

-Netna Johnstone

Extremely happy. From my initial inquiry (email), Greg responded promptly and arranged to visit the office to view works and discuss ideas to mount the canvases – had 48 canvases to mount. Finished works were delivered in quoted time frame and they look amazing. Mounting of works was competitively priced. Greg was very friendly and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Greg / Mahoneys Framing for any art work framing / mounting.
