I can't vouch for any of the following sites as I've never needed a custom made frame. Hope one of these links help you and sorry, I only found sites in German.

Re: Frame stores

There's a place by Bahnhof Stadelhofen, just into Müehlebachstrasse, which specialises in frames. Don't know the name, but you can't miss it as it has, er, frames all over the facade

Re: Frame stores

One more:

This is a fine arts supply store I stumbled upon yesterday. Lots of standard sizes, and customization:

http://www.boesner.com/boesner/servl...tartseite.html

The only problem is that it is in Aargua. But great selection of paints and art supplies.

Re: Frame stores

COOP Bau+Hobby in Volkiland (I would imagine the service is available in most of their larger Bau+Hobby store)

Reasonably-priced picture framing, Zurich?

Hi everyone:

I live in Zurich and need to get some pictures and photos framed. If you can suggest a reasonably-priced place to get this done (they're not master-pieces), I would really appreciate it. If you don't know of any specific places, but can suggest terms to search the phone directory for, please let me know. I have found plenty of galleries and art-supply stores, but no framers so far. Thanks.

Ikea has slipped a little
Picture frames

Anyone have experience with companies that frame prints/art work? I have a 45x65cm print by Dieter Roth that I need framed. I bought a cheap/temporary alu frame in Coop, but would like to have it done professionally. Coop charges ca. chf 300 for a custom alu frame of that size, but I am not convinced that is such a good deal. Any recomendations?

Re: Picture frames

If you're looking for another aluminum frame, you should be able to get one of that size manufactured in the US for about $50 I think.

Re: Reasonably-priced picture framing, Zurich?

I heard that Jumbo does framing at reasonable cost, but not at every store - you need to check if they have the facility. I ran out of time and was not able to get to them so had to resort to going to a photography shop in our village who charged me an astronomical fee

Re: Reasonably-priced picture framing, Zurich?

Whenever I need a frame, I visit IKEA.

Perhaps, it could be a solution for you.

Boesner.ch has a framing and matting department which is excellent and affordable.

Good picture framer around Zurich?

I have about 10 new original paintings to have framed from my recent travels in South America and was wondering if anyone knew of a good and reasonably priced framer in Zurich or environs. 2 of the paintings are fragile as are done on sheets - we bought them in Cuba and as such, we really need the framer to know what he's doing. Just had one framed in London that we gave as a wedding present and set us back £90 for a 70x50cm painting (included stretcher and purpose-built frame). The same framer quoted us £140 to do the same thing for 100x150cm painting though obviously we can't get that back on the plane. Hence the question. I'm guessing that given this is Switzerland, the price will be higher than what we paid in Clapham but any ideas will be grately appreciated.

Re: Good picture framer around Zurich?

I searched on here and found someone who used Art Poster Gallery on Stadelhoferstrasse near Stadelhofen Station and Bellevueplatz. We've since done 3 pictures there, all with great success. One was a relatively expensive print on unusual paper - they had great ideas and mounted it very well. I would highly recommend.

Re: Good picture framer around Zurich?

Depending on what quality frames and glass you want, there are other possibilites than an individual picture framer, which could indeed be expensive.

If standard size, you could DIY buying the frames off the shelf at most DIY stores, ie. Jumbo, Migro Brico, etc.

For a higher standard or unique sizes, where you choose the frame and the glass, and it is custom done for you, most of the bigger DIYs have this service--Migro Bricos, Hornbach, etc. Had this done several times, all with excellent results.

Re: Good picture framer around Zurich?

there is Doris at Birmensdorferstrasse, close to Golbrunnenplatz. She framed several nice pieces for me and was always good for a chat.
