I Love Framing

I love framing because I enjoy seeing people smile when they see their special item framed. It really brings joy to my heart to see people so happy. I also like to be challenged and I must say sometimes people bring in the shop unusual things to be framed so I have to think about what's the best way to frame it.

Wood Frame Pacs

Yes I have been introduced to Ebay. I'm sold no pun intended on selling on ebay. I started to sell some things on Ebay. Frames, pictures, old photos and posters. Here are some pictures of some of the items I posted. See if you can go on Ebay and find my items I posted for sale. I already sold one thing.

Two more things to be framed.
With the warmer weather coming upon us I thought when this oil painting painted by one of our patrons came in the shop to be framed I'd share it with everyone. She put alot of care and time into this painting. The girl in the picture is letting the pile of sand sift through her hands on the beach. I also thought it would be nice to show that a sport jersey could be framed side ways too.

Mounting Posters

Isn't this so true!

I'm hoping this blog is beginning to become a little more informative in learning what services frame shops can provide for you. Did you ever organize a fundraiser or special event where you had to display posters. Perhaps you struggled with ideas on how you would go about displaying these posters in an attractive way. Well maybe today I have some answers for you. One way is you can simply have them mounted on foam board. It's less expensive and makes the poster more attractive. Plus the advantage is you can reuse them each year for a recurring fundraiser event or to just hang. To hang them we can attach an adhesive hanger centered on the back of the foam board the poster is mounted on.
