The Framing Process
The framing process begins with something that you love. It could be art, photos, family heirlooms, great grandmas needlework, or your favorite poster. It all starts by bringing it in to our downtown shop and thats where the fun begins.
You name it, we can frame it.
This is when the fun begins. You can make a frame design appointment or drop in our shop (walk ins welcome), make sure to bring your artwork with you. If you have questions on how to transport your piece let us know.
Once you are here, one of our expert staff will guide you through picking out the perfect materials for your project. First we will start to get to know you, your art, and your design style. Next we will guide you through picking out the materials that will work best for your project such as moulding (the frame material), the mat type(s) and color, the glazing (glass).
Then We Take Over
Once all of the materials are selected our knowledgable framing staff take the lead. We will store your artwork in our store, protected in a specialized art care sleeve and in a safe environment.
Using specialized tools and materials designed just for framing, our staff begin assembling your project.
We cut, and join the frame moulding to the unique specifications of your artwork. We cut the Mat with a specialized Wizard mat cutter whose precision is unrivaled. We cut and clean the glazing (glass) and fit your artwork into the frame. We ensure your artwork is mounted safely and securely using conservation grade materials so your artwork is ready for the long-haul.
The Finish Line
Two weeks later (or sooner)... your project is ready for pick-up.
We have carefully crafted, cared for and preserved your artwork for you. We can’t wait for you to come see the finished piece in person.
We will call and let you know as soon as your project is complete and wait excitedly for you to come in and see the finished project.
