Matting & Framing

The Real Shop:

The Shop
Here is a view of the Lyme, NH shop where I work. This is a building
I built in 1997 and it is where the prints are made.

 

 

 

 

 

All matting materials are museum quality, acid-free, to print-only prices add an additional $15.

For prints framed in a natural wood frame (cherry, walnut, or cambia) there is an additional charge of $50 - $135, depending on frame size.

 

We frame using a True-Vue reflection-free glass called UV-70.  Increased prices reflect use of this glass, which is equivalent to museum glass in its reflection-free aspect with a little less UV protection (70% instead of 99%). 
I use very lightfast pigments in my prints and haven't been able to achieve fading, so feel this is an ideal glass for my work.

Please note, colors over the Internet may be deceiving. The walnut is the darker wood (a deep brown, not very red). The cherry is reddish, darkening a bit over time. The cambia is darker than the walnut but not black.  One of its advantages is its consistency of color, making it easier to have the frames match when hanging multiple prints in groupings.
