Buying Frames on-line
In recent years more and more web-sites are advertising for framing on-line. While this sounds fun and the possibility of convenience or better prices sounds appealing, there are some things to keep in mind.
I personally have fixed a number of these frames for customers and here is what I find;
- Wrong size
- Broken glass
- Scratched or Broken Frame
- Inferior backing, like cardboard
- Clear, not UV protected glass
We also see these types of things with large craft and hobby stores. If what you are framing is valuable and you want to keep it looking great for many years - take it to a local custom framer. Find someone you trust to help you design your project with Archival acid free materials. Someone who will not cut your art to fit the frame, but create the frame to fit your art. A trustworthy framer who will walk you through the pros and cons of the different types of glass and allow you to choose whats right for your project and budget. We offer a 30 day guarantee, if you don't love your final product we will fix it!
