CUSTOM FRAMING + FINE ART

Offering Quality Picture Framing & affordable Fine Art Prints in New Plymouth, Taranaki

Customized + Contemporary + Creative

Framed by Jo is a home-based, custom made Picture Framing and Photography business offering a top quality product and personalized service at an affordable price. 

Original artwork, photographs, children’s masterpieces, unique mirrors, degrees, memorabilia such as medals or sports jerseys, objects, canvas stretching, tapestries and cross stitch are all treated with care and consideration. 

Depending on your budget and conservation requirements, I can offer a range of premium archival materials and techniques ensuring longevity and protection for your artwork. Please check out my handy hints page for information on Conservation Framing.

I understand that for some, the design aspect of Picture Framing can be a little overwhelming but it is my job to put forward helpful ideas to assist in a stress-free consultation. My photography background and keen eye for detail and design is an added bonus in providing creative, contemporary ideas. 

I have a range of professional Framing equipment including Cassese and Fletcher which are regularly cleaned and maintained to ensure top quality, true results. And because it just me (Jo) personally working on your project from start to finish, I insist on maintaining the highest level of workmanship.

Framed by Jo may not be the largest or oldest picture framing company in New Plymouth, but I will humbly stand by my workmanship, creativity, personalized service and genuine care of your prized possessions.

FINE ART + PRINTS

Modern black or white, rustic natural woods, stunning ornates, matt or gloss finishes; box frames, double matts, multiple windows, float and tile mounting, textured or metallic matt boards, the list goes on. I have it all here at Framed by Jo and if I don’t, I will try my hardest to get it for you.

 

I can provide you really competitive pricing while still using quality materials and techniques that will allow your special pieces to stand the test of time. Acid free boards and hinging tapes ensure that no horrible yellow acid spots start to appear on your work and UV glass acts as a barrier to NZ’s harsh sunlight, which is detrimental to digital and photographic prints.

 

No matter what the value – weather high in dollars or sentiment, each piece will be cared for and given the individual respect it deserves.

 

Local Artists and Businesses please enquire about high volume commercial or exhibition discounts.

SPORTS MEMORABILIA

Signed rugby and football jerseys, medals and sporting achievements, cricket bats, tennis rackets or baseballs; What an awesome addition to your man cave, sports club or gift for the sport enthusiast in your home! All jerseys are hand stitched onto acid free board and mounted into a deep box frame so they are protected and completely removable if needed. Add a silver or gold plaque to your design for a classy finish.

CANVASES

Canvases are a contemporary and cost effective way to display your works of art. No matter what size you require my frames are custom made and very strong so there is no need to worry about any twisting or bowing in the future.

If you also require your canvas to be printed, I am an experienced photo editor so will happily make any file adjustments to ensure premium print quality. My canvases are printed on cotton canvas, using high-end UV resistant inks to help combat fading.

I also stock a range of large 1.5m x 1.2m tapestries which make great show-stoppers for any wall - contemporary art at an affordable price. View some of my collection below or simply get in touch to view my full range.

EMBROIDERIES

I use a combination of lacing and archival stitchery tape to evenly stretch your embroideries around acid free boards. It is then tight, straight and ready to be matted and framed. My stretching method is completely reversible should your piece ever need to be removed and will protect your artworks for years to come.

DEGREES

After all that hard work and dedication don’t let your certificates, diplomas or degrees collect dust in your bedside drawer. Be proud and display them for all to see. Weather you are after something contemporary or traditional I can provide unique framing options that will protect them for years to come. Alternatively I have simple, black ready-mades that look very smart on local WITT certificates and are perfect for those on a tight budget.

I have a range of simple and affordable ready-made frames in standard photographic sizes such as 5x7"s and standard paper sizes including A4 & A3. All materials used are of top quality, but by producing in bulk and using offcuts I can offer you fantastic prices. Conservation glass and fitting options are an extra cost.
