Midway through the process of framing a vintage Woodstock ticket and corresponding newspaper article for a customer, owner Brian Smith realized that his original design didn't suit the customer's taste and started over, finally arriving at a striking image that delighted the client. With an artist's intuition, Mr. Smith makes sure that each piece he creates suits each client's style, whether he's framing a sports jersey or a very loyal Roomba. He and his dexterous staff employ handpicked tools, such as float mounting, deckled edges, and high-definition framing, to preserve each piece and help it stand out from its surroundings. Eco-friendly framing options ensure that customers can rest easy, knowing that their wooden frame came directly from a sustainable forest and not a plastic mine.
