CUSTOM FRAMING + FINE ART PRINTING

Coastal Framing and Design is a picture framing and fine art printing business in Tweed Heads South, NSW.

We specialise in oversized framing. This includes all prints and posters, original art work, textiles, photography, certificates and Indigenous art. We enjoy sharing the stories held within the art of our First Nations people as their creations are brought into our gallery for framing.

” We recognise the unique connection Indigenous people have with the land and pay respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging. Through the stories told within their artworks, we strive for understanding and unity”.

We offer custom framing and consultations in our Art Gallery and Showroom. Please come and visit us with your art work, for expert advice, a friendly consultation and a quote.

“I love the framing from Jen and Rex.  Such quality, simplicity and perfect for my original art works. 5 stars.” Laura 2023

Laura Stratton Artist Beautiful framing

I give Coastal Framing and Design a full 5 stars. My beautiful Nepalese hand painted mandala is over sized, not square and fragile. I had consulted with 2 other framers who were not willing to touch it and then I had the good fortune to discover Coastal Framing and Design. I loved their “can do” attitude and the finished job is magnificent! I’m thrilled! Jen and Rex are lovely and very well priced. Super highly recommend.

Melanie Clifford 5 stars
