After investing so much time and effort into your needlework, framing is critical to both enhance and protect it for generations to come.
Conservation Treatment. I utilize the highest quality conservations methods: reversable mounting techniques, preservation materials, and glass that protects from damaging ultraviolet light. Our techniques protect against heat, light, humidity and insects.
Designed to Look Its Best. We offer hundreds of quality frames and matting options and will personally guide you through the design process to find the combination that displays your art to its fullest potential. We even offer in-home consultations to assist you in making choices that complement your decor.
Bring your latest handcrafted project to My Personal Framer and let us help you turn it into a work of art.
Canvas & needleart
There are a variety of choices. We can show you samples of each and help you to decide which will work best with your project
At Materpiece Framing we mount according to the artwork in ways that are appropriate and best for the art.
Works of fine art on Paper
All methods of attaching the fine artwork to the backing board (mounting) must be reversible without harming the artwork. The attachment should also be less strong than the paper of the artwork -- this allows the attachment to give before the paper of the artwork tears or is damaged. Archival corner pockets may by used on many types of artwork, others will need linen hinges, or mulberry paper hinges and wheat starch glues.
Special mounting issues.
