As we near 25 years of operation, custom framing remains the backbone of our business. Our specialty is preserving artwork, documents, and objects. Our goal is always to make it to be possible to remove an item from the frame without any significant alteration to its original state.
We have been trusted with artwork from the Huntington Museum of Art, the North House Museum in Lewisburg, West Virginia and the Smithsonian Institution affiliate, Heritage Farm Museum in Wayne County, West Virginia.
We have created stunning shadowbox collections, created display cases for treasured objects, and framed a variety of textiles from cross stitch to baptismal gowns. We have mounted and framed every collectible sports jersey and uniform imaginable.
Greg Norris, CPF, has received advanced specialized training in mounting artwork on paper and canvas, as well as preservation mounting of documents and objects. He regularly consults to picture framers around the world on mounting techniques and is a part of a network of picture framers allowing instant access to the knowledge of hundreds of framers, conservators, and curators with specialized skills.
While custom framing may seem simple, and that is as it should be for our customers, each job presents a unique set of challenges to the framer. Often, knowing what not to do is far more important than knowing what to do.
As the science of preserving artwork and documents continues to evolve, new methods and materials are constantly being introduced, so constant continuing education is our standard.
You can be certain that the work we perform will involve the best materials and methods currently available.
