Quality Custom Framing
About Plastic or Polystyrene Frames:
Quality starts with the frame, we only use top quality REAL WOOD picture frame moldings.
We will never use plastic or polystyrene frames because they are toxic, they break very easy and beyond repair other framers may use them but we do not and will never do so.
Can you imagine spending your hard earned money on a custom framing job with a plastic frame that will break or shatter when bumping it accidently dropping it or when the screws come loose from the back of the framed piece and falls ending up breaking other things including your art work. Wood is solid and stable infact a wood frame falling off a wall may not break at all but plastic frames will shatter.
Another line we will not sell is mdf picture frames i call this
material pasta framing. It may not be too bad for wider moldings but thinner ones
forget it, not very strong at all. you can even purchase online for great prices
canvas art made with thin mdf stretcher bars, i dont know how they can even stretch the canvas
on this stuff without it snapping in half, give me a break! Please!
I cant tell you how many times people come in to ask if we can fix these frames.
