Like most service-type industries, custom picture framing is just one of those subjects that you either know about or don't, where anything in between can be dangerous. To the layman, picture-framing probably seems a no-brainer: slap a frame on a picture, slap the picture on the wall, done.


Sometimes, it actually can be that easy.


Usually, however, the knowledge and experience that a professional picture
framer can bring to the table is what
is really needed. Qualified framers,
such as those working at the House,
have a background in color theory,
design
and visual balance, and will
of course be familiar with all of the materials and tools available to our industry.

 





We can do it all!
The full process of designing a custom framing scheme for your artwork is an enjoyable experience that typically doesn't take very long. When you visit the House, one of our experienced designers will greet you and begin working with you to find the perfect framing solutions to fit your needs.

Design is an objective process, so there is really no one right or wrong way to frame a piece. We believe there is only one major rule to follow when selecting a scheme: "Design to the artwork, and not the decor of the room it will be placed in." Nicely framed artwork will look great wherever you put it- don't compromise the design to match your furniture.


We offer a full line of archival materials to properly frame your most valuable pieces.

 
CONSERVATION / PRESERVATION FRAMING:


Conservation is an important issue with a lot of the artwork we see. Most people are generally only concerned with the visual
presentation of their art, and therefore fail to recognize what steps might need to be taken to properly preserve the work. We are keen to point out these considerations to our customers when the need arises, and we offer a full array of archival (acid-free) materials such as matting, mounting boards, adhesives and UV-shielding glass to ensure that signed/numbered prints, original artwork, antiquated pieces and other work of value is preserved for years to come.


We often use "The Wizard"- an automated mat-cutter that allows us to create very complex matting solutions at an affordable price!
  MATTING:

One of the greatest inventions to have revolutioned the framing industry was introduced several years back- the "Wizard Mat Cutting System". The "Wizard" is a mechanized cutting unit run by a standard PC and Wizard-proprietary software. It enables us to quickly and cleanly cut complex matting arrangements that would otherwise take a great deal of time to lay out and cut by hand. This translates to much lower prices on complex jobs, increasing the range of affordable design options available to our customers.


FINISHING TOUCHES:

After the piece is framed and checked again for flaws, we finish it off by sealing the back of our wood-frames with kraft-paper (metal-frames do not require this step), adding the proper hanging-system (typically light-weight, yet very durable coated wire), attaching "bump-ons" (tiny, friction-providing tabs adhered to the lower corners of the frame that prevent it from hanging crooked) and, when the piece has been checked again for flaws one last time, we add our House of Frames sticker as our seal of approval on a job well done.
 
Our attention to detail extends to all aspects of custom picture framing. We carefully inspect each project as we work to ensure that our customers receive only clean and beautiful pieces!
