Q Framing Pte Ltd started out as a small custom-made frame shop, co-founded by husband-and-wife team Steven Yip (Certified Picture Framer®) and Zoe Kew in January 2002. Our customers comprise mainly of fine-art collectors, art galleries and institutions as well as individuals who want to protect their cherished portraits and mementos.
Our passion for framing began when we were working in one of Singapore’s largest chains of retail frame shops doing ordinary framing jobs. Frustrated by the lack of an established framing standard in Singapore, we took on the responsibility to improve on that.
Q Framing Pte Ltd was thus established to provide exceptional framing where conservation is the norm, and we pride ourselves in taking up projects whether large or small. 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 continued 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 a renowned local artist 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, St Regis Hotel in Singapore, The Four Seasons Hotel in the Maldives, Pontiac Land Group, Wheelock Properties, art galleries, as well as individual collectors.
Our company currently occupies 12,000 sq ft of space in Bukit Batok Connection. 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 UV Protection Plexiglass for our frames.
As our client, you know you will always be assured of our professional services from artwork collection right through delivery upon completion.
