|The Framer's Workshop has hundreds of in-stock metal and wood frame moulding, as well as over 200 acid free mat colors to choose from. With your budget in mind, our talented and friendly staff will help you select a framing design that will complement and preserve your art while working with your existing decor.
The design process can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more depending on how many pieces you have and how complex the design job is.
In do-it-yourself framing, we do all the difficult parts, such as cutting your mat, backing, glass and frame. We join your wood frame for you. Then we show you how to assemble these materials using our work tables and tools to complete your project. Do-it-yourselfers can also use our discount framing packages to save even more!
Do-it-yourself projects can usually be done in one visit provided we have the materials you've chosen in stock. Mats and metal frames can be cut in a matter of minutes. Wood frame projects take longer as we have to chop, glue and V-nail the corners.
On busy days, we may ask you to give us an hour to get your materials ready prior to assembly. If we need to order your materials we can arrange to have everything cut and joined for you to come back and assemble within a few days.
Once the design is completed, we cut the frame and, if it is a wood frame, join it for you. While the frame is being joined, we also cut your glass, mats and backing using high-tech state-of-the-art framing equipment including our Wizard computerized mat cutter.
We show you...
- How to hinge your artwork into the mat and backing
- How to clean the glass or acrylic and check it for dust
- How to fasten the mat, glass and backing into the frame
- How to put a paper dust cover on the back of the frame
- How to attach the hanging hardware
With our help, you can have a custom cut mat and frame ready to take home and hang on your walls in no time. We also have complementary gift wrap for your convenience.
Of course, if you'd rather not do it yourself, we also offer custom framing. Turn around time on custom framing is usually a week to two weeks. Rush custom framing is also available.
