Like everyone else, we are staying nice and safe tucked up at home through the Level Four Lockdown. The shop may be shut, but we’re here to help you as best we can when it comes to getting those home decor projects sorted!
Throughout the lockdown, we’re still accepting orders on our online store, Artefact Frames, and we will be crafting and shipping everything as soon as we’re allowed to head back to the workshop.
Artefact Frames is the online store for our incredibly popular standard frame range. We’ve had them in store for a few years to test the waters, and so many of you have grabbed one for yourselves in that time that we are constantly bustling to keep up. As of this year, we have given it a home online so you can grab one from the comfort of your couch.
Our standard frames are the same quality we are known for, with archival boards, solid wood frames, proper glass, and all crafted by the same talented team. We always aim for quality that protects your artwork, lasts the distance, and looks great while doing so and the Artefact range is no different.
WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS?
We cover all standard NZ paper sizes and basic photo sizes, as well as some European poster size frames. There are options with and without a mat board to give you flexibility for the final look.
Even more than that though, our frames are available in the workshop for you to come and check out in person when it's safe for us to operate like normal. If you order from the workshop, we also offer a fitting service to make sure there is not a speck of dust in the final product. Make sure you bring your work with you when you come to check them out! We’ll help you make sure you get the right option for you.
Keep in mind that we have a very small retail space in Newmarket, and while we try to have every option from the range on the shelves there, we don't always. If you want something specific, you can order online for collection a few days later!
We offer the option to save the shipping cost and pick them up from us directly. When you order online, you can choose in store pickup at checkout. We will assemble your order and notify you when they are ready for collection. We're happy to make this as contactless as possible, and will get you to give us a call when you're heading in to see us so we can arrange it!
STANDARD OR CUSTOM?
The online store is perfect for those projects on standard sized papers, offering the classic white and black box frames, with mat. boards or not, as well as a classic scandinavian natural wood that isn’t too yellow or too brown, perfect to tie in with any decor style. We took a long time to choose just the right one - it essentially acts like a neutral colour in our world.
If the size of your print isn’t available, you want something a little different to what we have online, or your work needs something more permanent and protective than a standard frame, we are happy to chat about custom frames from our bubbles too! We have the biggest range of samples on the wall in our Ponsonby workshop, but in the meantime we’ll do all we can to help you from home. We can quote and talk options from home, give you advice and then get underway with the crafting once we are back in the workshop.
WE’RE ALSO HERE TO HELP AS BEST AS WE CAN WITH ANY ENQUIRIES!
If you have any questions as to which option may be the best for you, or if you have any custom orders you would like to chat about, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us! We would love to hear from you and have a chat about your ideas to keep us feeling as normal as possible!
