Custom Picture Framing Tips

Picture framing can sometimes be confusing and our goal at The Creative Palette in Barrie is to provide you with some great tips to help you make sure you are happy with your framed art and know exactly what to expect when you frame with us.

Picture Framing Tip #1:

Framing is primarily used to make sure that your art looks great. Quality presentation enhances every aspect of the art; a poorly selected frame can make even the best piece of are look terrible. A well selected frame and mat should not overpower the artwork and should draw the eye to the piece in a natural way.

Picture Framing Tip #2:

The frame you choose is supposed to protect your art. We have had a number of treasured and valuable items come into our shop because they were improperly framed and damaged as they fell to the ground. It is important to ensure that your art is properly framed by a trusted professional who is experienced.

Request a free no obligation quote for your framing job.  Just email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. the dimensions of the piece you are framing (inches are preferable.)  Give a full description of the item (photo, art, sports memorbilia, needle point, etc) include your choice for a frame, if glass is needed, mats, etc.

"Our daughter has thoroughly enjoyed every class that she’s taken with Heather. So much so, that she invited friends to an art class birthday party. Lots of fun! It’s been a great balance to add a creative activity to her extra-curricular activities." Ruth Rankin

"My daughter loves coming to art class with Heather. She loves it so much she has asked to join a second class per week. The pieces she has brought home are beautiful. Our favorite painting is on our fireplace mantel so we can see and enjoy it every day. Heather is very talented and works well with the children. We would recommend this class to everyone."
