When bringing in a project to be framed you need to plan on spending 20-30 minutes with us picking out the components for your project (no charge). The reason for this is simple: we have 500 wood moldings, 200 metal moldings, and several oval frame samples to choose from. We also have over 600 different mats (all acid free) including white core, black core, suede, specially textured, and sports themes. We have several glass options including conservation glass.
We like our customers to be involved in the selection of these components because, after all, you are the one who will be enjoying the framing on a regular basis. We will give you our professional opinion, but the final choice is up to you. One of our favorite types of framing projects involves memorabilia, sports, military, ancestry, etc. The stories behind the memorabilia are usually unique and very interesting. One thing about memorabilia that is hidden in some drawer or closet is just that: it remains hidden. When you frame memorabilia the visitors in your home will know what has been important to you and your family.
When you have finalized the component selection to be used in your framing project we will figure the cost for the project before you leave the store and give you an approximate completion date. Pat does not give discounts or specials because everybody that comes in the store receives her best in regard to workmanship, value, and completion times. We value your time and want you to be a repeat customer and friend.
