What makes My Personal Framer special-- Is it the art?
- Is it the molding and matting samples?
- Is it the special matting and framing techniques we offer?
- Is it the years of experience?
- Is it the customers that keep talking about us?
- I think it a bit of all of them and some, I'm sure, I haven’t thought of. But, the main reason My Personal Framer is special, is you. I want to do the best possible designs and framing for you. I want to carry only the best art and framing options.
- I am always trying to improve your experience. Together, we make it FUN!
But, I recently had a customer tell me I need to “Blow My Horn”
about some of the unique skills I bring to your framing presentation.
Some of specialized skills offered by my Personal Framer
- French lines-lines that are hand-ruled on the face of a mat using an engineers ruling pen.
- Panels– a narrow to wide border that follows the mat opening and is colored with either pastels, watercolors, book papers, bordered by French lines or custom created to enhance the art.
- Hand-Painted Bevels-the bevel of the mat is painted to accent the art or to match the mat and make the white bevel disappear.
- French mat-a combination of French lines, panels and painted bevels.
- Hand-wrapped Fabric mats-This is a lux look that features mats covered in fabric chosen specifically for your artwork. The mat is sprayed with adhesive and the fabric carefully adhered. This mat features a clean bevel that has the fabric wrapped over the bevel and covers the cut edge of the mat window.
- Gold leafed bevels and accents-hand applied leaf on either the bevel, a panel or embellishments.
- Can also be applied to frames for accents or completely cover the frame, antiqued and toned for a truly custom look.
- Fillets-these are small wooding inserts that can line the opening of a mat or the inner lip of the frame.
- When combined with fabric-wrapped mats, lines or panels a truly one-of-a-kind framing is created.
Of course, I also use preservation/conservation materials and methods with the above. If you invest in fine framing for your art
make sure it is done with the best possible materials and processes.
