Why choose Portico Gallery for your picture framing?


Portico Gallery is the only Picture Framer with membership of the  PPFA (Professional Picture Framers Association) in the Bay of Plenty. With many years of experience and Fine Art Trade Guild training to back this up, the Portico Team will take care of you and your artwork from the moment you arrive. Whether it be a family photograph, a child’s painting, some memorabilia or a valuable work of original art, we treat everything with the same level of respect and care, knowing the true value lies in what it means to you. We take immense pride and satisfaction in our work, knowing that it will bring you pleasure for years to come. We also pride ourselves on great customer service, and you can be assured of a warm welcome and excellent service at Portico Gallery. 


The Team at Portico love to help you find the creative solution to your framing needs. We are creative people ourselves, experienced in colour theory and design and we love helping our customers through the framing design and consultation process. Whether you have a clear idea of what you would like or don’t have a clue where to start, we will have lots of fun helping you to find what works for you, your artwork and your home. And we can frame just about anything! An All Blacks jersey, medals, a piupiu, a baseball glove, a boxing belt, etc, etc. You name it, we’ve framed it. And we do love a challenge, so come on in and show us what you’ve got. We are also the only picture framer in the area to have our very own Wizard (a computerised mat cutter) which allows us to create amazing borders for your framing. Have a look at these examples!

Value for money:

Custom picture framing is an investment in the present and the future. Whether it be a proudly earned certificate, a precious photograph or a family heirloom, you can trust that a custom picture frame from Portico Gallery is helping to preserve your memories, family history and achievements for a lifetime. And the end result will amaze you, evoking emotions and memories every time you look at it. Something that will look beautiful and make you smile every day. How cool is that? And you have the security of knowing that in the unlikely event that after a couple of weeks you decide you are not happy with something (say, for example, the colour doesn’t work with your wall at home), you can bring it back to us and we will change it at no extra charge. We want our customers to be 100% delighted in the end result!

Care and Conservation:

Here at Portico we pride ourselves on using only conservation-grade materials and methods when framing your artwork. In this way, picture framing not only beautifully displays objects and images, it helps to preserve them as well. We use only acid-free materials including lignin-free cotton rag matboard and we recommend the use of premium grade UV protective Artglass, which is museum quality and provides the most amazing clarity and allows the true colour and vibrancy of your image to shine through. Blending traditional skills with new materials and technology, Portico is taking custom picture framing in Rotorua to the next level. And if price is a factor, we have a range of frames and options to suit every budget.

Whatever you need framed, we will walk you through the design process from beginning to end finding exactly the right solution for your needs, resulting in the creation of a beautiful work of art.
