Framing Guide:

TEN THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE FRAMING YOUR PICTURE:

1. What and why to custom frame:
Whether you are framing a poster, your kids hand prints, or a fine work of art, custom framing will reflect your personal taste and protect your piece for years to come.

2. Consider the surroundings:
While you should certainly consider the room's decor, you shouldn't match the frame to the room at the expense of what looks good with the picture. We will help you through the process of determining what works best with both the item and the room. Take into consideration that you may someday redecorate the room or move the art.


3. Choose the matting to enhance your artwork.

Matting is the term used to describe the "window cut" material placed around an image within the frame. They can be made of a variety of materials such as paper, cotton and fabric in a wide range of colors. Mats serve as a spacer allowing the artwork to expand and contract with changes in humidity. Matting makes the overall size of the finished piece larger and provides a space for the eyes to rest between the art and the frame.

4. An ounce of prevention ...
Many times cherished art is damaged prior to arriving at the frame shop because it is improperly stored or transported. If it's a rolled piece such as a poster, serious damage can be caused by rubber bands, tape, paper clips and even a gentle squeeze. Make sure that the artwork is placed in a folder, protective covering or tube. To prevent accidental damage, allow your framer to remove the artwork from its packaging.


5. It's all in the details.
Consider adding another detail. Fillets, beveled mat treatments, creative window openings, specialty papers and fabric mats can add a distinctive look to your art. An experienced framer is familiar with these options and can help you decide what works best with your item. Sometimes it's the smallest element that makes the biggest difference.

6. Choose the best frame to enhance your art.
There are thousands of different styles and sizes that come in a variety of stains, glazes and finishes. Let us help you select the frame that best suits your artwork and have it made to your exact specifications.We now have a state of a  art Visulization system to help you in the framing process. See it framed BEFORE you decide.

7. Archival materials protect your artwork properly.
Some common framing materials such as paper mats and cardboard contain acid that will gradually destroy your art. Using archival mats and backing boards will help protect art from the damaging effects of time and from common pollutants that cause yellowing, fading and deterioration. Additionally, certain types of glass will help prevent damage caused by UV light.

8. Mounting your artwork properly.
The dry and roller mounting processes bond artwork to a board to prevent artwork from bubbling or waving and are most appropriate for posters and some photographs. Pieces of any value are generally not dry  or roller mounted since these processes are irreversible and can greatly affect any resale value. Museum mounting, commonly know as hinging, attaches the art with paper hinges to the board. The art hangs freely, allowing it to expand or contract with the changes in humidity.
Hinging or archival photo corners are recommended for original artwork, delicate photographs and other irreplaceable items. We can mount up to 48x96.

9. Choose glazing to protect your art.
Glazing refers to the glass or acrylic material covering the artwork as a means of protection. There are many variations including regular clear glass, anti reflective ( chemically coated ), non glare ( acid etched ) and conservation glass or museum  glass ( specially formulated to help filter UV light .) There are also acrylic glazing products that come in non glare and UV filtering varieties. Acrylic is lighter in weight and is safer than glass but requires a soft cloth and nonabrasive cleanser. It is ideal for oversized pieces, frames hanging in children's rooms or items to be shipped.

10. Find the right framer.
A good framer will help you with all the decisions that go into properly framing your picture. Quality framers have years of experience with preservation framing and design using a variety of materials and methods. We are dedicated to providing beautiful custom design and great service.

11. What is a SHADOWBOX?

 

Closer to home, a shadowbox can commemorate a vacation, a birth, a marriage, a graduation, a retirement a collection, or any special occasion. Toys, trinkets baby items, photos, ticket stubs, dried flowers, golf cards and balls, ceremonial programs, or any other desired items may be put into a shadowbox. A shadowbox is a very personal creation. Whether one receives a shadowbox as a gift or makes one for oneself, it is a treasure to be kept and handed down for generations.
