"We chose warm mats and a golf frame and fillet for this Venice painting. It really suited it."
# 2 - Preservation:
The practical or preservation part of custom framing helps to ensure the piece is protected from fading and the breaking down of the art to become damaged. Preservation of custom framing helps to prevent damage to art before it's too late. When your art has been damaged, it is almost impossible to restore it without the help of a professional restoration expert. For any piece that is valuable, collectable, or just has great sentimental value to you -- it's important to use the right materials to preserve it in order for proper protection.
Custom framing can be applied to almost anything. From one painting to a photo, to needlework, or any 3-dimensional keepsakes. Don't be put off by the term Custom Framing.
People often associate it with being expensive, which isn't always the case. At J & S, they use options to prevent expensive pricing for their customers. They can use a stock frame and then customize the matting and glazing to protect your artwork, or they can use a moulding that is not so costly. Show the framing experts and they will do their best to work within your budget.
"This picture was to be placed in a man cave. We matched a rusty looking frame up with the rust on the traction. The results were outstanding."
# 4 - Customizing Mirrors:
Framed mirrors can add so much to your living space.
Mirrors can make your room look larger and lighter with the right placement. A framed mirror will also add character and style to your space.
Old family photographs, old wedding photographs, and birth certificates can be restored to look like new.
At J & S, they do this by scanning the damaged piece and using the computer to restore it to its original state. The piece is then printed on acid-free paper, using UV inks so they will last for generations to come. The file can be kept by you to share with the rest of your family. You can now frame that piece of family history and enjoy it every day. It is protected, no matter the age. It's fun for younger generations to learn about their family history and to be proud of their heritage.
# 6 - Beware of DIY Framing:
Beware of DIY Framing. It may be fun to do your own framing by using old frames and frames from the big box stores. You can actually ruin an art piece or collector piece because of the quality of the materials used.
