Much like a butterfly collection or a loose transdimensional tesseract, a family portrait is best kept secured behind a protective pane of glass. Entrap a memory with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $125 toward custom framing from J.B. Picture Framing Studio in Blaine.
J.B. Picture Framing Studio's owner and Professional Picture Framers Association member Joe Weinbeck secures alluring art and beloved memorabilia with custom encasements and holiday framing. From his private studio, Joe deftly crafts frames for cherished objects, from prints and sports jerseys to prized documents such as diplomas or original recipes for raisins. More than 100 matting options from archival-quality brands including Peterboro, Crescent, and Bainbridge outfit framed pieces with fetching colors and textures, and a dizzying choice of moulding styles harmonizes edges with any hanging site's carefully considered aesthetic. Because each job is uniquely tailored to customers' tastes, prices vary from piece to piece, ranging from around $30 for a single-mat 16"x20" frame to $275 for 32"x40" memorabilia-stuffed shadow boxes. All work is performed on-site, preventing the accidental wear and tear that can result from moving pieces around the city or catapulting them to zeppelin-based suppliers.
JB Picture Framing Studio
Within his private studio, Professional Picture Framing Association member Joe Weinbeck handcrafts elegant frames to protect oil paintings and prints. Equipped with conservation framing know-how and hundreds of frames from six different suppliers, Joe introduces artwork to new habitats that shelter the pieces from harmful UV rays and hostile eye contact. Archival-quality mats from Peterboro and Crescent give diplomas or photographs the space they need, and four grades of glass or acrylic glazing protect wandering fingers from sticky globs of paint. Joe can also showcase his talents with large-format framing for epic Led Zeppelin posters or blown-up versions of Robert Plant's braces-laden middle school photo.
