An era is about to come to an end - Manson Framers business is closing.
It has been run by Cameron and Sharon, members of the original founder Keith Richardson's family.

 There is still time to place your final framing orders and to purchase art supplies*

by the Tuesday 15 August. Shop front doors will be closed from Wednesday 16 August.


We will be working in the workshop completing all the remaining framing orders.

Customers will be contacted to arrange collection times as work is finished.


Cameron explained that a number of factors had led to their decision to close the business, including increased costs of supplies and a steady rise in the costs of operating the business as well as a downturn in demand for their services.


Unfortunately the picture framing service will not continue at this stage. Cameron will re-evaluate and re-access the framing business after a period of six months and most likely be a greatly downsized operation.

“We would like to say thank you to all of our customers over the years.” said Cameron “It's been a great pleasure and honour to have helped them with their treasured artworks and precious memorabilia and Sharon and I, as well as all the members of our small team would like to say how grateful we are for their faith in and support of our business since we opened in 1964.”


As well as thanking their customers, Cameron and Sharon also thanked their committed staff both past and present for their service over the years.
