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.
