About Us

I’ve Been Framed is a family owned business operated by Drew and Janene which was established in 2009. Drew commenced framing after not being able to purchase frames suitable for his passion in medal mounting and honour boards. After completing several courses Drew was able to produce professional frames at an affordable price.


I’ve Been Framed is highly diversified in the field of framing using the latest techniques, products and equipment to give each customers the best possible value for money.


During the last 9 years Drew and Janene have completed a variety of framing including canvas, silks, poster, sports memorabilia such as cricket bats, golf clubs, jerseys, caps, posters, art work, honour boards including Army, Air Force, Navy, Police, Ambulance, Corrective Services, Fire Brigade, mirrors, certificate, photos, to the more obscure items including tooth extractors, wine syphons and swords.


One of the most successful framing of ‘I’ve Been Framed’, is their Jersey’s.  Not only are they the best price, they are the best in quality and finishing as all our customers would agree. The main reason for this outstanding work is due to Pop (Drew’s dad) who used his knowledge of computer aided drawing to produce the best possible results.

Drew’s passion for framing, medals, honour boards and militaria is inspired by his desire to keep the spirit alive of all those who have served and is a member of the Abermain RSL Sub Branch.


During the first 4 years of business I’ve Been Framed was located at Shop 1/167 Vincent Street Cessnock and in which time Drew and Janene built a solid customer base. In early 2013 the business was moved to it present location (25 View Street Cessnock) due to family commitments.
