HOW WE DO IT Drawing on more than 40 years of design experience and technical knowledge kept current with the state of the art, we work with you to determine your needs, desires, and budget. We take the worry out of the process, creating a design you will enjoy every day for years to come. We don't want you to be satisfied. We want you to be thrilled. FRAMES Rather than overwhelming people with walls bulging with thousands of samples, we strive to present a broad but thoughtfully "curated" collection of styles from the best sources in the industry. These represent a wide range of sizes, styles, colors, and finishes from traditional to contemporary, timeless classics to today's trends. Simple, Ornate, Gilded, Lacquered, Hardwood, Metal, Acrylic boxes. All with one aim: to achieve the design goal we have in mind. MATS All the mats we use are of preservation quality, so you know your art won't be subject to deterioration caused by inferior framing materials. That doesn't mean that the selection is limited. Sourced from several top vendors, we have a broad range of colors, textures, fabrics, and even specialty surfaces perfect for projects from sports items to lavish formal designs.
MAT DESIGN In addition to traditional matting, our imagination and our computer-driven mat cutter enable creative choices that can really make a design "sing". From a subtle distinctive touch like an arch-top opening on a classic portrait photo to a bold festive presentation of a wedding invitation or a child's uninhibited drawing, the possibilities are many. Enhancements include shaped openings, v-grooves, deep bevel effects, faux finishes, traditional French matting using hand-applied inklines, marbled papers, and more.
GLAZING We need light to be able to see our art, but too much of it causes undesirable changes. That's why it should never be hung where prolonged exposure to sunlight or fluorescent light might occur. We offer a number of options for both glass and acrylic, most featuring UV-filtering to help reduce a major cause of fading. Some are also designed to minimize distracting glare or reflections. One of the best of these is TruVue Museum Glass, which filters 99% of UV exposure and also has a special optical coating that all but eliminates reflection, rendering it hardly visible from most angles. Our needlework customers absolutely love it for their projects. MOUNTING We use a number of different mounting methods, depending on the nature of the art or objects being framed. A simple poster might require dry mounting, while a piece of fine art may be mounted using edge supports or hinged with special mounting tissue. Fabric items may be stitched. Objects may be attached using inert mylar straps or formed rod mounts, as are often seen in museum displays. We will determine the best approach during the design process, the goal generally being to mount securely, but ideally, reversibly and without altering the item being framed.
