Pictures propped against walls, crammed in closets, or carried away by picture-thieving magpies can't be beheld. Today’s Groupon increases art visibility: for $60, you get $125 worth of custom framing at Creative Framing, located within Gallery Raymond. The framesmiths at Creative Framing aesthetically outfit art on-site, taking into account client budget and tastes. Frames envelope pieces in both wood and metal embraces, and acid-free mats are available in a plethora of hues. Glass varieties shield in shades of regular, non-glare, and conservation, which fights off 98% of ultraviolet light's dastardly glances. Combine their specialties for an 11"x14" wooden frame, acid-free mat, dry-mounting, and regular glass ($110, including assembly), or take advantage of the myriad customizable options.
Since 1984, the framers at Creative Framing have worked with clients to encase treasured photographs, paintings, and keepsakes on premises. Drawing inspiration from the colour pairings in the shop's attached gallery, they match artworks with wood and metal frames as well as shadowboxes. The framers also shield works from sun rays and the withering eye contact of art critics with UV-blocking and glare-resistant glass. Gallery liners come in linen or custom-painted Medite; mats in hundreds of colours complement pictures and make diplomas look smarter. The Creative Framing team will also reuse or resize an existing frame on request, counselling it for adjustment to life after cosmetic surgery.
