The Art of Picture Framing: Why It Matters

Picture framing is not just about enclosing your artwork or photographs in a frame; it’s about enhancing their visual appeal and preserving their integrity. The right frame can transform a simple piece into a stunning work of art. Here’s why it matters:

  1. Protection: Quality picture framing safeguards your artwork from dust, moisture, UV rays, and physical damage. This protection ensures your pieces remain in pristine condition for years to come.
  2. Enhanced Aesthetics: The choice of frame and matting can complement the colors, style, and theme of your artwork, enhancing its overall appearance. Whether you’re going for a classic, modern, or eclectic look, we have a wide range of options to suit your taste.
  3. Longevity: Well-crafted frames and archival materials can significantly extend the lifespan of your artwork. They prevent deterioration and fading, ensuring your pieces remain vibrant and beautiful.
  4. Personalization: Custom picture framing allows you to express your unique style and personality. You can choose from a variety of frame styles, mat colors, and finishes to create a piece that’s uniquely yours.

Plaque Mounting

Plaque Mounted Photos is another alternative to having your photos framed. This unique process seals your photos onto a wooden board, protecting them from dust, moisture, and UV rays. The result is a very clean and simple look that can enhance the visual appeal of your space. With no need for glass or frames, plaque mounting offers a sleek, modern look that is perfect for any decor. Plaque-mounted photos come with a beveled edge for a sleek look, and you can pick different colors for the beveled edges. Plus, it’s easy to clean and maintain.

                     Canvas Stretching 

Many people return home with artwork on canvas they purchased on their travels and then have them put on stretcher bars so they can hang their art on their walls. Having a piece of art and mementos from your travels on your walls is a great way to revisit those great times each time you walk past them.

You can choose to have your canvas stretched normally or with a wrap-around, so you can see part of the image from the sides, if you want your canvas to have a gallery look we can frame it with a floater frame for a slick look. Of course, you can just have your canvas framed with our large selection of mouldings. 

Other framing options

We also offer printing and dry mounting your images on Aluminum prints or Acrylic prints, as an alternative to custom framing. These are popular due to their clean and minimal look.


We have a large selection of mouldings, and we deal with several manufacturers, Omega Moulding Company is one of our favorites.
