DIY Framing Supplies

All Your DIY Framing Needs

Black Door Gallery provides all materials for the Hobby Framer, which we call our DIY Framing Service.


What is DIY Framing Service?

DIY ( Do it yourself ) Framing is a service Black Door Gallery provides for customers who want to have a go at framing their own work, and save a few dollars.

DIY Framing Options?

Frame Kits: This is the most common DIY option sold at Black Door Gallery. We will make the frame kit which comprises a frame, glass and backing, flexi tabs, a hanger and in some cases a coloured mat.

As the customer, you fit your photo, item or piece of art in the kit yourself. See our Photo Frame section for more information on frame kits and Framing Instructions for how to put your picture into your new frame.

Chop Service: Black Door Gallery can provide a chop service for the more adventurous people. You choose a moulding from our extensive range, and we will cut the frame to your dimensions, as well as glass, backings and mats if needed, and then you join the frame yourself.

Raw Materials: For the true Hobby Framer, Black Door Gallery can also provide you with moulding, glass, MDF, foam core and mat board by the length or sheet. We have many Hobby Framers who choose to do their framing job from scratch, and by doing this, save maximum dollars.

DIY Framing Benefits

The benefit of DIY Framing is you save money. As much as 50% off Custom Framing. The downside, DIY Framing means “Do It Yourself”. If you choose to frame your own item, Black Door Gallery is happy to supply you with the necessary products to finish your job, but framing choices are up to you.

So if you are a hands-on kind of person and may like to have a go at framing your own item, Black Door Gallery can provide all the necessary pieces to the puzzle. We can also provide machinery from handheld mat cutters and frame joiners; we cover that too.

Be aware that if you choose to be a DIY Framer, we do not advise you on what will best suit your framing, as this service is built into our custom framing option.
