Getting a feel for pricing

To show you what we do better at Stephens, here are some examples of artwork that customers have bought in for a framing quote. Our customers trust us to design a unique frame for them, in the price bracket they have in mind.

Example 1

 

Classic-Car-Picture thumb

ClassicCarFrame thumb

Artwork
Ltd edition historic car photo. The customer wanted a simple, classic frame to suit 70's car. Budget $200-$300.


Price & Size
$295       700mm x 520mm

Solution
Hinge photo behind museum quality double mattboard, inner red to pick up on speedo and rev counter needles, black top mattboard to enhance the feeling of looking out the windscreen. Silver frame to match automotive theme.

Example 2

 
 JacketandRecord thumb  Bob-Dylan-Framed thumb

Artwork
The customer has a large record collection and wanted to frame some record covers to hang by his stereo. Budget up to $150.


Price & Size
$125       310mm x 310mm

Solution
Since he couldn't afford to frame several, we suggested one frame that he could swap a new cover into every week. We put bendy tabs on the back to hold the cover in place and make swapping them easy.

Artwork
Ltd Edition hand finished with gold leaf. The customer wanted something totally unique that tied in with the gold and silver theme. No price restriction.


Price & Size
$395        600mm x 500mm

We used an oversized double black museum quality mattboard with a black core to draw your eye to the bright colours in the artwork. Silver leaf frame with an offset corner including a piece of gold leaf frame.

Example 4

 
 Sample4-3pics thumb Sample-4-230113 thumb

Artwork
3 x 10" square original oil paintings on stretchers. The customer wanted to make them larger with an ultra modern unique frame to match his house. No price restriction.


Price & Size
$637       1400mm x 600mm

Solution
Frame each one with a deep box frame then one frame round the outside, leaving a gap. Each artwork had a line down the middle, so we tied this in with a stainless wire down the centre to mount the artwork onto, to give the appearance they are floating in space.
