Corporate Framing Case Study: 
"Wonder Team" Phi Kappa Psi memorial, Berkeley
Phi Kappa Psi - Berkeley

In November we completed a large framing project for the California Gamma of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. The project involved scanning, touch-up, preserving, and re-framing a large number of class composite photos, original antique photos, fraternity memorabilia, and sports photos and jerseys. We redesigned some items from concept photos and old documents, and simply framed others. The project was part of a larger architectural renovation of the Phi Kappa Psi house.
Specialty Mat Cutting 
Guardians of the Galaxy

The owner of this original concept drawing for the "Guardians of the Galaxy" film wanted a mat cut to match the film's logo.The artwork floats on Crescent Couture "Molten Gold," 100% cotton rag matting.The top mat is cut from a silky Crescent "Etched Black." We've used UV filtering glass to protect the inks from fading. The frame is a simple matte black metal. Learn more about our Specialty Mat Cutting service!

Having Fun at the WCAF 2015 Convention

Kirstie at the 2015 WCAF Convention We had such an interesting time at the West Coast Art and Frame Show and PPFA National Conference this year. Classes by Paul Macfarland and Hugh Phibbs on preservation hinging were extremely informative and helpful. We are coming back to the shop full of new ideas, and design knowledge so we can provide the best care for the art we frame. Continuing education energizes us and helps us strive to be our personal best. RIght, Kirstie poses in a large frame and mat display near the Crescent Matboard booth
