Welcome to Archetype Custom Framing Toronto.
We are a customer service oriented picture framing shop located inside a historic factory building in the King and Bathurst area of downtown Toronto. Please have a look around our website to view some samples of our work and learn more about the services that we provide.
Sometimes you need an elegant, understated frame for your big bold prints. Here is a Marimekko textile that we stretched and framed in a thin black floater frame.
Here we have some lovely gilded 5″ x 7″ frames handmade it Italy. These antique frames are new old stock from another picture framing store in Toronto that recently closed it’s doors. We have a limited supply of these lovelies for sale at a special price of only $25 each. Bring in your small artwork or 4″ x 6″ photos and we can custom frame it in one of these gold frames for only $50, including UV protective glass and museum quality matboard. Limited supply available, get ‘em while they’re hot!
Here we are distressing a new extra-wide wood profile that we recently started carrying. This particular style of picture frame moulding is over 5 1/2″ wide and is available in a slightly smaller 4 1/2″ variant as well. This grand moulding is guaranteed to make a statement in any room, and looks as great framing small prints or mirrors as it does with very large ones. Look out for an update from us soon as we look forward to showing off some of the new pieces that we will be creating with it.
I probably don’t have to tell most of you local readers that what we have here is a very nice hand-painted sign from the one and only Honest Ed’s. The art of hand lettered sign painting is alive and well in that store, and we are huge fans of this particular art form. We think it looks great in it’s new simple black wood frame and very thin black mat. This will serve as a great memento once this Toronto landmark finally closes it’s doors.
Here is another print by Trevor Wheatley that we recently framed.
This poem by Sir Christopher Ondaatje titled Daydream, is a tribute to Chester, Nova Scotia. We framed it in an antiqued white wood frame which our customer said reminded her of the sea. Calligraphy by Patrick Fisher.
We are having an open house tomorrow (Saturday July 26, 2014) here at Studio Huddle from 2pm until late. Please stop by 97 Niagara St. Toronto and say hi. There will be new works on display by all of the artists and craftspeople working out of our collective studio. Hope to see you there!
