Q Framing Pte Ltd started business as a small custom frame shop co-founded by husband-and-wife team Steven Yip (Certified Picture Framer®) and Zoe Kew in January 2002. Our customers comprise mainly fine-art collectors, art galleries and institutions as well as individuals who want to protect their cherished portraits and mementos.
Our passion for framing started when we were working in one of Singapore’s largest chains of retail frame shops doing ordinary frame jobs. We were frustrated by the fact that framing adhered to no particular standard in Singapore and wanted to take steps to change that.
Q Framing Pte Ltd was established to provide extraordinary framing, where conservation is the norm, and no job is too large or complex. We upgraded our skills through attending seminars in the United States, and Steven is armed with certification from the Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA). Through education and constant learning, we want to make a difference in raising the standards of the entire industry.
Our very first framing job – a Chinese ink painting by Henri Chen composed of seven panels measuring 5 by 7 feet each – is still hanging proudly in the Marriott Hotel, Singapore. Over the years, we have handled an impressive range of artworks and personal artefacts and worked with esteemed clients such as the Singapore Tyler Print Institute, National Heritage Board, Heritage Conservation Center, National Gallery Singapore, Singapore Art Museum, National Museum, Pontiac Land Group, Wheelock Properties, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, OTA Fine Art, as well as individual collectors.
Our company currently occupies almost 9,000 sq ft of space in Lam Soon Industrial Building. Our access-controlled premises are closely monitored by CCTV, and all works in our care are kept safe and insured. We personally train our team of people to meet our exacting standards, and insist on Museum Grade 100% Cotton Rag Matboards, quality mouldings and Museum grade Anti-Reflective glazing or UV Protection Plexiglass for our frames.
As our client, you know you will always be assured of professional service from collection right through to delivery.
