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.

Frame RoomIf you come by my place to look at prints we go down to the Frame Room. This is where for years we did the framing and shipping and where the finished prints are located.


As of Novermber, 2017 things are now a bit different.  If you call it is more likely I will recommend you might me down at the gallery, MBFA, in downtown Lyme.  I still make frames and do parts of the framing up at my place, but most shipping happens at Matt Brown Fine Art, 1 Main St., Lyme, in the building shared with Mascoma Bank's Lyme branch.





All matting materials are museum quality, acid-free.

We frame most prints in a narrow hardwood custom moulding of natural walnut and cherry.  To print only price add $15 for price in an acid free mat, $75 - $105 for framing depending on print size.

The walnut is the darker wood (a deep brown). The cherry is reddish, darkening a bit over time. Keep in mind wood colors can vary and colors over the internet may be deceiving.  Should you wish to have oak or maple frames, we can likely do this.

Museum glass: If you wish for your print to look the best I offer an option of framing in museum glass (reducing significantly glare on the glass), for an additional $30. Depending on ambient lighting where you may be hanging your print museum glass can make quite a difference in the look of the print.
