In most cases the art is viewed through a glass medium. Glass protects and interacts with the art. Hence the correct selection of glass is an important element of the framing process. Safety factors as well as Non-Glare, Non-Reflective, and U.V. filtration factors need to be considered carefully and balanced against the costs involved. In the past decade, the glass industry has produced exciting options to the framing industry. Our experienced designers determine which combination of factors are suitable and necessary for each piece we frame. They will guide you through to ensure that the correct choices are made.

Mats and Fillets
With thousands of Mat board options available, there is bound to be perfect choice for your piece. Our designer’s goal is to rule out the unsuitable and offer the possible options for further consideration. We believe that the client’s input is crucial in achieving a good result, and here is where the fun begins. Besides the usual regular mat boards, we also offer acid free mat boards, and fabric mats in many thicknesses. We also design and produce French Matting (usually for botanical and old prints), and English Matting (The original mat concept created in England, where the glass is paintes on the reverse side). We offer replacement or restoration of such rare mats. Fillets come in variety of materials and their effective use is enhancing your artwork. Mat board fillets, custom foil fillets are offered along wooden fillets. Wooden fillet can be toned to match the frame where ever necessary. We have the capability of creating a thick bevel as a fillet and gild it in either 22 Karat or other non precious metals to match and enhance your art. Having gilded the thick bevel, the mat board is then covered with a suitable fabric revealing the gilded bevel.
Often we are able to repair damages occurred due to accidents, transit or mishandling of your frame. We can repair or re-size frame, re-cut a mat board, or simply change your glass or plexiglass. If it can be saved we will do it.
Restoring an antique frame requires the expertize that only come with years of experience. We have the capability of repairing only part of the damaged area and retouching it to match the frame, or completely restore the entire frame and gild it to its original glory.
Over the years we have built close relationships with some of the most accomplished art restorers in the art industry. We will be happy to present your art piece to them on their regular weekly stops at our show room. We will then share their views on how best the restoration of your art could be carried out.
Acrylic (or plexiglass) is a flexible medium used for art pieces which require a modern/ frameless look. Although a Plexi Box is a potential candidate for a modern piece, Plexi boxes could lend themselves to a whole variety of 3 dimensional items such as Kimono’s artifacts, trophies etc.. Sandwich Plexis are used for Photographs, Documents, Watercolors, etc.. We design and fabricate exceptional museum pieces that are well constructed and ecstatically pleasing to the viewer and the environment in which they are showcased.
Often finishing touches such as an engraved brass plate with the artists details is necessary to complete the job. Or perhaps a corporate logo or message would need to be duplicated and personalized for each client or employee. What ever the challenge, we can offer an appropriate solution. We create highly personalized engravings that once installed to the frame will be treasured and appreciated for many years.
Archival does not just mean using “Acid Free” materials. Handling your treasured piece as well as presenting it with an appropriate design are equally as important. For over 40 years we have collaborated with a thousands of Fine Art Gallery and Collectors. Our loyal client base is a testimony to our success and their trust in our professional integrity.
