Frequently Asked Questions
How long does framing take?
Most framing requires twoÂ to three weeks depending on materials needed and where we ship them in from. Some things we can do for you immediately while you browse or finish your shopping for the day. If you're short on time, please let us know, we try to accommodate every need. Having said that if your framing project is for Christmas, please bring it in for framing in October & November to avoid the rush and possible disappointment.
Does my artwork stay in your store while it is being framed?
Yes. All work is done by our professional staff on the premises. As it is impossible to stock 2000 frame molding profiles and mats, framing materials may be ordered and shipped to our store to complete your framing project.
Do you frame needlework?
Yes. We frame all types of needlework including cross stitch, needlepoint, crewel, tapestry, and all types of fabric art.
Will you frame my artwork using a frame I bring to you?
Absolutely. We are happy to use your antique frame or something you may already have.
Why do I need a dry mount?
This is a procedure used to adhere a print or poster to a stable backing board and guarantees your artwork will not ripple or wave. Despite glass and backing support, without this procedure your print may ripple as it expands and contracts with the changes of temperature and humidity in your home.
What about artwork value?
That $15 poster or child's drawing may have little value. But once professionally framed it becomes a crucial design element. A well framed print or poster ends up looking like much more than a cheap piece of paper. Put it in a cheap frame, however, and it will remain a cheap poster. And your child's drawing could be the next Picasso! Don't ruin something by improper framing because you think it has little apparent value.
