We have seen a trend in larger artworks being brought in for framing in the past few years. As the urban spread continues to grow across Sydney, houses are larger, walls are becoming more spacious and the interiors are becoming more simplified, with home owners choosing to stick with simple palettes and using furniture, soft furnishings and artworks to brighten up their space.

In order to fill large spaces, our clients are opting for large canvas arts. Once framed, they are reasonably light and can span much larger spaces than a piece of art framed with mats and glass. Installation is also far easier with canvas stretching, and sizing can be made much larger.

We have also seen an increase in the amount of Aboriginal art being brought in for framing, and we cater to all styles of framing these truly beautiful and unique pieces.

So how do you find the right people to frame your canvas art ?

Choose someone who has been in the industry for an extended period of time.

Although Black Door Gallery has a relatively new name, we were established as Pro-Frame Design in 1987.

We are a second-generation, family-owned and operated business with a wealth of experience in canvas stretching, among all other framing options. Our current owner has been framing for over 30 years, with the family involved in the framing industry since 1972.

Due to the length of time Black Door Gallery has been in the framing industry, we believe we can offer a genuine lifetime warranty on all our custom framing.

We believe this is an important consideration when choosing your framer.

Why choose Black Door Gallery?

Besides experience, we only use the highest quality canvas stretcher bar for our stretcher frames. We also use stainless steel staples to stretch our canvas artwork. Stainless steel does not rust, so you never have to worry about the staples rusting and eating into the canvas.

Black Door Gallery also offers a lifetime warranty on all of our custom framing. If you ever have an issue with your item, bring it in for assessment. If we deem it to be the manufacturer’s fault, we will fix it or replace it FREE of charge.

When you purchase a piece of canvas art, is stretching the only option ?

The simple answer is “No”.

There are other options including blockmounting and also mounting to a board and placing straight into a frame.

These options may be taken when there is not enough canvas bleed area to stretch with.

In order to stretch a canvas, there will need to be 60-80mm of bleed area to stretch properly. Otherwise, you will lose some of your artwork.

So come in and speak to the people who truly know the industry and will look after your artwork.

Why choose Black Door Gallery?
