Boxed note card sets by Tom Killion
Woodcut and letterpress artist Tom Killion grew up in Marin County, California, on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, where the rugged scenery inspired him from an early age to create landscape prints strongly influenced by traditional Japanese woodblock prints.

These lovely note cards beautifully reproduce the amazing woodcut prints of the California landscape. Each box set contains a dozen 5x7 cards with envelopes. $16 in our shop.

We sell so much Museum Glass at our shop that we need to occasionally clean out our remnant pieces of this premium glass.


During this month only, and while supplies last, we are offering Museum Glass for the price of UV protective Conservation Clear. This sale applies to small sizes available in our remnant baskets and is over when the pieces are gone. Hurry in for the best size selection as these pieces won't last long.

Tender Promises
Kirstie & Jeff's newly engaged son Ian and his fiance Drielle make promises for their future

Framed Engagement Vows From the moment the couple shared their engagement promise lists with our family, it was clear that we needed to design a very special mat and frame to preserve this keepsake for the rest of their lives.

Framed with silk fabric mat cut with starts, scraps of notebook paper floated on metallic matting, a Bella silver shimmery frame, Optium Museum Acrylic for clearest view and protection. See more Celebrations Framing!
Frame of the Month
Framed 48 Star American Flag

Framed 38 Star American Flag
This 48 Star American Flag, along with military medals and a Naval Aviator Certification booklet is preserved in this deep shadowbox frame with a hand-wrapped fabric mat. The medals are positioned inside recesses in the mat while the flag and booklet are sewn down to 'float' on top. It is glazed with Museum Glass and framed with a dark rustic wood frame.
Restoration of the Month
Restoring color to a faded print

Restoring color to a faded print
It is possible to digitally restore color to SOME fine art prints. This small seriagraph print by North West tribal artist, Joe Wilson, had faded from ultraviolet light exposure. We scanned it, researched to find the colors in the original print, re-colorized it, and printed out a duplicate for the customer. Obviously this is not the original signed print but it is good duplicate for decorative purposes. Consult with our graphics manager, Mike Wells, to see if we can restore your faded prints.
