We have been framing for years, too many to count. We are very proud that all of framing is done in Houston, Texas. We do not import or resell wall décor and we make every frame in house. In a time were imports are at an all time high, we are still able to say 70% of our mouldings are made in the USA, our mat board is made in Chicago and our glass is made in Texas.
We use all of the standard techniques and several which we have perfected over time. Below are some of the options we offer:
Framed to Image
This is most simplistic style to frame, the frame surrounds the image. Choose either Poster Paper or Fine Art Paper, both are great chocies so just chose the right paper for your project and/or decor. We also offer the option to mat your chosen artwork. A double mat being the most preferred. The top (outer) mat adding size and interest to the image and the inner mat (next to the art) is usually a color to highlight the colors of the image. The inner mat creates a mini frame of color to the image.
We also offer canvas prints. Feel like framing the canvas yourself or have a unique way of displaying your chosen canvas art? Great, you can simply add unstretched canvas to your shopping cart. Or have our staff frame the canvas in your moulding of choice. It's all up to you! A framed canvas is the image transferred to canvas, stretched, and framed to fit the canvas size, no glass is required which elimates any glare!
Gallery Wrap: This style of framing starts with our canvas transfer process. After the image has been transferred to the canvas it is stretched over kiln dried artist quality stretcher bars. This is hand done by skilled framers so that the canvas wraps around the sides and is secured to the back of the wooden frame firmly. The hardware used to secure the canvas is not visible, thus creating a clean finished look. The sides of the canvas have a 1 1/2 inch mirrored edge reflecting the image itself. Preparing the canvas in such a manner allows for a clean, simplistic, & frameless presentation of the finished product.
