Picture framing is our passion, let us help you design the perfect frame to
enhance your picture and decor.
Picture framing involves many areas of expertise from design, colour,
dimensional perspective, carpentry, glazing, a large technical base on
preservation, techniques and customer service.
Mat boards or mat borders are not only for decor and design for your tastes but were originally introduced
when pictures became adhered to the glass and were lost forever.
These have a major part in conserving your art or memorable photo. There are situations were it may not
suit a border and we recommend a glass spacer or glass raiser. A clear tubing that is not seen which
elevates the glass off the piece and protects for years to come.
Mat cutting or design can involve many combinations:
- A single, double, triple or other combination creating that personalized frame
- Museum or rag, conservation, buffered, unbuffered, colour core, white core and the choices is continue
- Use fillets of which are very enhancing and come in many designs
