Getting started has never been easier. Start with a frame kit like our best selling kit #1

Our best selling mat cutter is the Mat Master 860B. You can cut all your own matboard without any overcuts.

Upgrade your Pushmaster with the Benchmaster #1 option. Insert V-Nails into the hardest of timbers such as oak and Jarrah.

If you do not have the framing tools and wish to just buy a ready made frame, use YourFramer online framing program to order a ready made kit.

I am an amateur photographer, what is the best mat cutter for me. Frameco has many models suitable for the hobbiest or the busy home framer.


What People Are Saying About FrameCo

Do your own Framing / Concepts

Getting started

Hi Carol... The frame arrived today from FrameCo...I am absolutely thrilled with the quality, price, wrapping and overall service... I see there's a membership application there which I will attend to shortly... If you haven't deleted my card details...DON'T, because I'll be ordering again soon... I have a few signed footy jerseys (not of the Victorian style)that I have to frame & this moulding style is perfect.... Many, many thanks for your terrific help & service...

Best regards,

Can I set up to do my own framing ?

I wanted to take a minute to say thanks. My wife Gayle and I have several lithographs that need framing, but the cost of having them framed has delayed this project. By researching on the internet I came across your website, it was very user friendly and straight forward……I requested a catalog and price sheet which were received very quickly. I phoned Maryann Dinsfriend and she took the time to answer all my questions and invited us over to Paso Robles to see your facility. This last Monday Gayle and I drove over to see Maryann and she was very knowledgeable and took the time to go over all of the FrameCo tools and products.

Maryann had me cutting and grooving mats and I could see that by using your tools that I would be able to frame my own art work and, even with the cost of the tools, come out ahead.

I have told my friends my intensions and all of them have something they want me to frame. I am currently unemployed and my plan is to get into the framing business. I am looking forward to my new endeavor and I know that by using FrameCo tools that I have a very good chance at success.

Best regards,

DIY framing..the possibilities!

I live in a " Lifestyle Village " for the 45+ age group, there are 340 homes with many residents into Arts & Crafts all of whom complain about Framing Costs. I am hoping to get a Workroom set up in one of our Community Facilities where I can offer a "Not for Profit" service to my fellow residents. This may take a little time to set up and I must practice my skills on a few friends before I can offer the service to everyone in the village, don't be surprised if there is a lull in orders but it will happen.

Would you do me a favour and pass on my thanks to the two guys who introduced me to "FrameCo" at the Craft Show recently. Many Thanks.

How easy it is to get started !

Thanks fellas!

My first frame was one of our own photos and now hangs in the toilet. The next job was a paying job for the kids' school and I've just framed 4 of my own cross-stitches. Friends all say the same thing - 'We've got stuff in the cupboard that we need framed!'. So it looks like I'll be busy for a while!!

Can I do it all myself!

I have attended one of your picture framing workshops and have purchased equipment from you. I was most impressed with the workshop, the knowledge and presentation qualities of your staff, and the quality of your products. It was easier than I first thought and your equipment has allowed me to produce excellent results.

I can do my own framing.. and get a professional finish!

Dear Trevor,

The FrameCo equipment you sold me last year performs so well, I have raised my framing standards to Gallery level and couldn’t be happier in early retirement.

I appreciate good tools and good information!

I'm a precise woodworker and your site looks exactly the source I’ve been searching for to meet hobby framer needs. Looking forward to seeing the catalogue.
