Frequently Asked Questions…
What does it cost to frame?
Prices vary with size, framing procedures used, and design elements
chosen for your particular art piece. Our experienced staff will
recommend appropriate procedures explaining their benefit as well
as offer design options to enhance your artwork. All design and
price quotes are free of charge. So come in, bring your artwork,
and explore your options.
How long does framing take?
Most framing requires one to two weeks depending on materials needed.
Some things we can do for you immediately while you browse or finish
your shopping for the day. If you're short on time, please let us
know, we try to accommodate every need.
Does my artwork stay in your store while it is being framed?
Yes. All work is done by our professional staff on the
premises. Framing materials may be ordered and shipped to our store
to complete your framing project.
Do you frame needlework?
Yes. We frame all types of needlework including cross stitch, needlepoint,
crewel, hooked rugs, tapestry, and all types of fabric art.
Will you frame my artwork using a frame I bring to you?
Absolutely. We are happy to use your antique frame or any framing
materials you may already have.
Why do I need a dry mount?
This is a procedure used to adhere a print or poster to a stable
backing board and guarantees your artwork will not ripple or wave.
Despite glass and backing support, without this procedure your print
will ripple as it expands and contracts with the changes of temperature
and humidity in your home.
Why do frames cost more than pictures?
Framing costs can't be adjusted depending on the value of artwork.
If the art you brought in was worth $5,000 your framing cost would
be negligible. But your $30 poster framed in a $100 frame would
probably cost much more as a completed project if purchased that
way in gallery or department store.
What about artwork value?
That $15 poster or child's drawing may have little value. But once
professionally framed it becomes a crucial design element. A well
framed print or poster ends up looking like much more than a cheap
piece of paper. Put it in a cheap frame, however, and it will remain
a cheap poster. And your child's drawing could be the next Picasso!
Don't ruin something by improper framing because you think it has
little apparent value.
Which computer mat cutting system do you use?
We use the WIZARD system, the leader in the computerized mat cutting
