"The frame is the reward of the artist"
- Edgar Degas
Proper custom picture framing is much more than materials and techniques. Knowledge of frame styles, and periods are essential to the finished artwork, and how it fits into your environment. Art periods, your decor and architectural styles are keys to providing the correct harmony in your finished product. it is the picture framer's duty to know the differences, and how to utilize them.

The Importance of Proper Framing
A customer brought in a framed acrylic painting done by
her grandmother. As you can see by the photo below, it is
a still-life of flowers. This artwork was recently custom
framed at another shop (now out of business) nearby in
Sandwich, MA. Although this customer accepted the design,
she was always unhappy with the results. She did what
most consumers do: she relied on their “Expertise” in
designing the finished product. They took her hard-earned
money and delivered a product that was so overcooked,
and so out of proportion; we recommended that
she make a fresh start. Click here for details!
