Picture Framing News

Dear Subscriber,

As the New Year begins, we want to thank you for trusting us with your framing and for supporting local independent business. Your patronage means a lot to us! Last year we framed so many special items, and we plan to share some of them with you in upcoming newsletters. The dance card booklet below typifies some of the interesting treatments we can design using our design, printing, and framing services. Motawi Tileworks usually waits until January to introduce new work, but this year they premiered new Charley Harper work a month early. We hope you enjoy Homecoming shown here. Finally, we welcomed two new framers in November. Take a look at their short bios below, and you will appreciate how lucky we are to have found them.

We wish all of you a very happy and healthy year, and we look forward to seeing you in the shop soon.

--Kirstie, Jeff, and all of the staff at The Framer's Workshop & The Framer's Outlet

Frame of the Month
Framed Phi Kapa Psi antique
We recently framed several historical pieces for the UC Berkeley chapter of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. Among the items framed was a very small "Dance Card" booklet, from a 1921 formal dinner and dance hosted by the fraternity. The fraternity wanted to preserve the booklet while displaying its pages. We suggested scanning and printing out the book pages, including them in a multiple opening mat. The booklet is sewn to the acid free backing with invisible filament, and recessed inside a sink-mat. The matting was decorated with a gold pin-drawn design element, a printed title, UV filtering acrylic and a black wood frame with a gold lip. For a close up and detail, click here!

Elise (right) holds a Bachelor of Science in Studio Art & French from Skidmore College. She is a printmaker specializing in intaglio, monotype and chine collé. We're excited to have them on our staff. Be sure to say hi and welcome them the next time you're in the shop.
