Your professional framer at The Frame Shop Gallery presents a boring but true informational flyer about
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU INVEST IN CUSTOM FRAMING!
(and yes, you're right, we don't think you'll read it.)
1st BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
What you are really buying when you use the services of a custom framer is the talent, knowledge and the ability to select the proper framing materials for your particular project. That means the right colors, the right frame style, and most importantly, the right materials to protect your art, photo or memorabilia.
2nd BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
The Frame Shop Gallery does not out source! All construction and assembly of your framing project is done onsite, in house, by our experienced professional staff. Your project will truly be Made In America!
3rd BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
At the Frame Shop Gallery, we only use materials that have been proven to protect and maintain art in as close to its original condition as possible. Even the backing board, mounting materials, glues, and wire are rated the best according to today's industry standard for museum framing. We don't cut corners to save money, even if our customers wouldn't know the difference.
4th BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
Wanna know why your moulding really cost so much? It's all first quality wooden mouldings (evidenced by the varying wood grains on the corner samples), not plastic or composite materials
provided by reputable companies known world-wide for their quality. Many are hand finished or water gilded and none of our designs have been copied illegally - no knock offs here. About 30% of the mouldings we carry are produced in AMERICA! That's right! AMERICA!!!! Go USA!
5th BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
We only use conservation mats (not paper-buffered) and adhere to strict framing industry guidelines for conservation and preservation of all of your pieces. If matting is not your choice, we use spacers to insure proper airflow.
6th BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
All glass is not created equal. In order to preserve and protect your artwork, we use the best conservation quality framing glass available (Tru Vue, not window glass). Our plexi-glass is also the finest available in the industry and is indistinguishable from glass when seen in a frame.
7th BORING BUT TRUE FACT:
Just like anything you buy, there are all levels of quality, and custom framing is no different. Sometimes things that are a bargain are only a bargain initially -- the real cost comes later. We never compromise. With a hundred years lifetime on true conservation framing they are the real bargain. Your custom framed heirloom from The Frame Shop Gallery will long outlast almost anything else you own. It'll even outlast you.
