Guide to Custom Picture Framing

Every framing project is unique, but here are some fundamental considerations that may be discussed 
when you at the counter.


FRAMING COMPONENTS


MOULDING - refers to length material - wood, MDF or metal - that is cut and joined at our facility to create your custom frame.  The variety of choices is extensive.



MATS - help to “frame” the image and offset artwork from the glazing. Choose from hundreds of mat styles and colors All of our products are of the highest quality  


GLAZING (GLASS OR ACRYLIC) - You'll select from several glass or acrylic options that offer varying degrees of UV protection, durability, glare resistance and other features.  


CANVAS STRETCHING - is the recommended process to preserve your canvas peieces for years to come.  Canvas options:
  •  Gallery Wrap the sides and hang the canvas without a frame. 
  •  Regular Canvas Wrap to be placed into a frame. 


MIRRORS - bring light into dark spaces and complement any interior space. 

  • Custom sizes
  • Available straight cut or beveled
  • Over-sized and specialized framing options

MOUNTING - Depending on what is being framed, anything from heat to hand- sewing may be used to attach your piece to backing material.  Our designer will lead you through the appropriate mounitng options.


FITTING & FINISHING - in addition to the mounted art or object, glazing and optional mats are cut to fit.  If the item is dimensional, a shadowbox needs to be built to create a deeper frame to accomidate the artwork.  This is finally assembled and finished with backing paper and hanging hardware.
