WHAT IS CUSTOM FRAMING?
Custom framing is a consumer choice for the professional framing of art, photographs and other items designed and assembled especially for the customer. Custom framing offers individuality and maximum beauty and focus to the item being framed utilizing a broad range of frame moldings, mats and professional design and framing skills.
WHAT IS PRESERVATION FRAMING?
Preservation framing, (also called conservation framing), utilizes materials that are acid-free and mounting techniques that offer protection to the art or article being framed. Preservation glazing (glass or acrylic) is also used to offer up to 99% filtering of ultraviolet light that can cause fading or discoloration. Preservation methods offer protection to help retain the original beauty of the article and the frame package. We specialize in preservation framing.
WHAT CAN BE FRAMED?
Beyond art and photographs, the list is endless. A baby’s first pair of shoes, sterling silver spoon collections, sports jerseys, kinderart, needlework, autographs, baptismal dresses, military medals, uniforms, artifacts, news articles, tapestries, commemorative coins & maps; cards, wedding keepsakes, to name only a few.
