  • Framing Design

    Framing Design

    We use only the finest quality materials when beginning your framing project and keep in mind that the final look of piece should always compliment or enhance the art, not over power the subject to be framed. The framing should direct the viewer to the importance of the artwork and not the frame elements. Each frame project includes choosing the best matting colors, type of glass needed, and the proper frame moulding.
