Ten Tips for Framing

1. - Narrow mats create a busy target. Donít be afraid of large mat borders.

2. - Donít try to match room colors exactly.

3. - The framing should not overpower the art.

4. - Hang pictures at eye level. Always use 2 hooks to hang your work, for strength and greater stability.

5. - Mix frames of different colors and styles in a room.

6. - Reframe pictures and reuse frames: perhaps a new mat color is all you need to coordinate your old artwork with your new decor.

7. - Custom framing is very personal.  It enables you to create a unique and distinctive look.

8. - If color is critical, bring samples of fabric and paint into my shop.

9. - Look at room decor in magazines and on television to help figure out what you like.

10. - Feel free to ask me questions, the more you know, the better you can make decisions about framing your art and objects.
