Framing


Custom Picture Framing

We at Paperwhite firmly believe that even the most…ahem…challenging piece of ‘70s velvet “dogs-playing-poker” art can be made fresh again with good framing. We carry the best mouldings available from makers like Roma and Larson-Juhl, as well as finished-corner or “gallery” frames from Omega.

Wendy is trained in archival techniques and uses only acid-free materials for mounting and matting. She’s also trained in French-matting, which is very fiddly mat decoration incorporating colour channels, gold and silver inks, watercolour lines, etc. – particularly beautiful with the antique prints that we love so much!

So go on and dig Great-aunt Mabel’s pictures out of the back of your closet (you know who you are!) and bring them in for an estimate. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Antique Prints

Botanicals, architecturals, maps, animals, birds…

As an aficionado herself, Wendy has assembled a beautiful collection of treasures from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Antique prints are experiencing a resurgence in popularity, and whether you choose a stand-alone piece or a grouping, they can really finish a room. Looking for something specific? She can help you source it!
