Custom framing can be a creative experience!!!!!
Here is a brief discussion of some of the unlimited possibilities that are available to you...

Frame...

The frame serves both a practical and an aesthetic purpose. It protects, supports and displays the artwork while helping to integrate it into its surrounding environment. There are literally thousands of frame styles and mat combinations available.

Mat...

The primary purpose of a mat is to create breathing space between the artwork and the glass. The art must not come in contact with the glazing material.

Aesthetically the decorative potential of the mat is limitless, the many colors and textures along with all of the specialty mat cuts, filleting and a wide variety of fabrics for hand-wrapped mats.

Regular or paper matboard will, over time, turn yellow and stain artwork with the acids present in the board.

We recommend that only 100% rag board or 100% Acid-Free matboard be used in the preservation of your artwork. Rag board is archival museum grade, the highest quality matboard available.

Fillets...

Fillets are thin, decorative pieces of moulding designed to be added to frames, mats and to be combined with other fillets.

We offer fillets in a wide variety of finishes and styles. Sometimes fillets are matched to a particular moulding but most often are offered to complement the wide variety of moulding styles and finishes.

When used in the frame itself, fillets allow you to personalize your framing by adding a touch of gold or a trace of mahogany. Fillets can also enhance the presentation by creating a boundary between the mat and the art.

Fillets are wonderful for larger mats as they allow the designer to reprise the frame color, style or pattern next to the artwork. In combination the use of fillets adds color highlights and drama to a framed piece. The finishing touch!

Glazing...

Glazing is an important part of a framing job. It protects artwork from dust, moisture and other airborne contaminants. While glazing serves as a protective barrier, it should never be in direct contact with the artwork. Any condensation on the inside will be transferred to the artwork and cause damage due to mold and mildew. In addition, over time photographs in direct contact with glazing will adhere making it impossible for them to be removed.

There are two categories of glazing materials available, glass and plexiglass, and in each category a few additional options.

Glass is common but... plexiglass has it's advantages. Plexiglass is both lightweight and shatter-resistant so if your art will be hanging in a kid's room or a high-traffic area this is a good choice. Plexiglass is also generally advisable in the Bay Area due to the possibility of earthquakes. It is also best for shipping.

Two things to consider in your glazing decisions are the level of protection and aesthetics. Some locations will be prone to surface glare and a non-glare glazing material should be used. If your artwork will be hanging near a light source, incandescent, florescent, or natural window light, we recommend using a UV cut glazing material.

UV cut materials will also prevent fading, discoloration, and other deterioration of the artwork. You may also want to consider one of our non-glare reflection-control glazings as they can be very effective in the reduction of surface glare.
