CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING
Professional Picture Framing:
A professional picture framer can take any item you bring and custom build a frame that will showcase and protect it. The framer will take the item, measure the item, and will cut the frame (moulding), the mat (if applies) and the glass, then will construct the frame and the necessary opening on the matting. When all the parts are ready, he/she will take the item and safely place it and anchor it in the corresponding openings and then they will assemble all of the components together. At the end on the assembly process they will place either a wire or a hook to hang the frame from.Get Your Free Quote
Shadow Box | Framed Jerseys
A professional framer will follow the same idea as in the picture framing taking into consideration that the items to be framed are not flat as a photo, but they are 3 dimensional. The framer will build the frame according to the corresponding measure of width in addition to the height and length. Some of these items, specially shadow boxes, can include an LED light inside the box to make it easier to display it.

Professional Canvas Stretching:
There are two types of stretching:
Regular Stretching: This technique consists in taking the edges of the canvas and stretching them around a one half inch stretch bar. We use staples on the side of the bar to secure the canvas.
Gallery Wrap Stretching: This technique consists in taking the edges of the canvas and wrapping them around a 1” or 2” bar. We use stables on the back of the bar to secure the canvas.
In both cases there are factors that are very crucial to the stretching process: The framer must be detail oriented and make sure that the canvas is absolutely flat and that no wrinkles exist. When folding the corners of a canvas needs to be done with care and make sure that no part of the canvas is loose.

A printing job can be done on either canvas, photography paper and other water resistant materials. Any size up to 60" to 100" (5: to 10"). In both cases it is very important to have the high quality of materials and ink. This quality not only will reflect in the quality of the artwork being printed but also in the durability of the piece. There are types of ink that last longer without fading. When printing on a canvas you must always remember to apply a UV protecting coating to avoid fading .
Another important factor that will influence the quality of the printing is a high resolution picture. Bring or send us a high resolution photo and we will be able to manipulate images using Photoshop and then print them.
