The Art of Custom Framing

The Art of Custom Framing
Great, great Grandma and Grandpa Gillespie lived in the attic for over a hundred years.  Their descendant who found them decided they deserved better.  We agreed.  Not many people have photographs of their family that date back five generations.
This special project deserved special attention.

We started by putting a fillet around each photograph that came with its own paper matting from the 1850's,  We raised the photographs and attached them to a silk mat.  Next, we built a special angled mat with its own fillet to give it a unique shadowboxed look that draws your eye into the images.  We finished it off with a beautiful Larson-Juhl frame from the Biltmore Collection.

We think the spectacular result epitomizes The Art of Custom Framing!

Preserving Your Memories

Preserving Your Memories
Time, light and the environment can fade and discolor photographs and other artwork. To preserve your memories it is important to use UV protective glass, either conservation or museum.  The image on the left is an example of the damage UV light can do.  It had been framed with regular clear glass. The image  to the right had been protected in a photo album.
By using conservation materials including UV protective glass, either conservation or museum, as in the finished piece, your artwork will be protected for years to come.
