Once you have chosen a piece of artwork, it is time to think about framing. At The Framing Concept, our framers design the framing to enhance the artwork. If you have a color scheme, the artwork could match these colors. If you would like the frame to match the woodwork in your home or office, feel free to bring a sample with you. If you are thinking about matching a mat color with a fabric color, again, feel free to bring a sample. If the artwork is a print, poster, needlework or original work of art on paper, we begin designing by choosing matboard colors. The framers at the Framing Concept uses preservation quality matboards from Nielsen Bainbridge and Crescent, which means we use a matboard either made from wood pulp or cotton that is acid free and approved by the Library of Congress for preservation framing. These matboards will protect your artwork and resist fading.

Next, we choose a frame. We have a large selection of wood and metal samples to fit any decor. We feature Larson-Juhl, Turner, Nielsen, Nurre Caxton, Presto, and other fine mouldings.

Once we have a frame picked out, we will help you choose a glass. You may choose from regular clear glass, reflective control (non glare) glass, conservation clear glass, conservation reflective control glass or museum glass. The conservation & museum glass have a film to protect the artwork from harmful UV rays. It is used mostly on limited editions and original artwork.

We can also frame keepsake items, such as, an antique watch, christening gown, or autographed baseball. The Framing Concept has several shadow boxes to choose from for these items.

Custom picture framing can be an art. The frame design for your artwork is only limited to ones imagination. With our expertise, we will help you chose the best framing for you, using the finest materials.
