create custom frames to protect and enhance art objects for
display, working with customers to design the exact frame
Methodologies: Dry mounting, conservation/museum mounting,
sewing of fabrics, canvas stretching, prints transferred to
Materials Utilized: paper, cotton rag, and fabric covered
matboards, custom manual and computer guided cut mat boards,
picture glass, non-glare glass, ultraviolet filtering glass,
non-reflective ultraviolet filtering glass, museum glass,
Plexiglas, metal sectional and wood frames.
Wood frames are joined using pneumatic under-pinner for
unmarred, tight and strong corners.
Object framing: Diplomas, certificates, art prints,
posters, oil paintings, watercolors, 3-dimensional objects.
Newspaper and magazine articles are scanned, edited,
reduced or enlarged as appropriate and printed on archival
paper for longevity.
Engraved, etched and sublimated plaques for titles and
captions mounted in and on frames. Computer typeset paper
text for titles and captions on a budget.
Costs for design services are included in frame price.
offer quantity discounts for interior designers.
figures are approximate, but this is a general idea of
average cost for a given size picture frame, assuming a
1-1/2 inch wooden frame molding priced at $12/foot, average
fitting (labor charge to assemble-roughly 10%), premium
clear glass, dry mounting of artwork to foam core board, and
single opening single paper mat.
do not charge fitting for metal frames. Metal frames range
from $5-10/foot so this selection will lower cost at least
by the labor charge.
*Extra large sizes dictate necessity of wider frame
moldings, and/or substitution of acrylic for glass for
safety. These may add to costs.
Optional features, like non glare and conservation glass
(double cost), additional mats (double-triple etc.), fabric
mats (4x cost) and extra openings ($4/each) to mats or no
mat, or fillet or combining picture frames: will raise and
lower the cost for materials and labor accordingly.
