Pittsburgh Custom Framing

In previous articles we’ve talked a lot about digital images. Today we’re going to talk about your physical photos, whether it’s to hang up in the office or your house. Chances are, if you’re hanging a picture, it’s either one of your favorites or has sentimental value. Getting your photo custom framed can not only finish off the photo as a piece of artwork, but it can help preserve it for years to come. For the visual effect, the frames purpose is to complete your photo, drawing the eye to it, without distracting from it. We highly recommend our downtown Pittsburgh Custom Framing.

.At first glance, a room full of frame corners, with hundreds of colors, shapes, textures, and feels might seem super intimidating. Don’t worry! A professional custom framer will help you out! They can look at your photo and almost immediately narrow down a couple of frames that will work best for you. There will be some other materials to consider as well, such as the mat and mounting system. The mat is a thin piece of material inside the frame which separates the art from the glass. It can also serve a as decoration, depending which you choose to go with. This will come along with recommendations from your framer. 

Preserve! You love your photo! You want to save it for years to come, right? The way to do that is to learn how to properly preserve it – everything from mounting it correctly to storing it correctly. Framers take this responsibility seriously, as they should, and you choose not to use their recommenced preservation materials you may even be asked to sign a waiver releasing them from any responsibility for damage that may happen over the years.

Conversation With The Framer They may start by also asking some administrative questions to get started – such as your budget or timeframe. As we all know custom framing can get a little pricy so it’s important to be on the same page from the beginning.

Because the photo’s frame is as much for decoration as it is preservation, the framer will need to know a little more about you, and the location of the photo – as well as see the photo themselves if possible. The may ask you the coloring and personality of the room it will be hanging in. They will be particularly interested about the wall it will be mounted on, in order to find the perfect mounting material for you. Depending on your response, they may need special mounting equipment to help it stay secure (may increase the total price). 

Don’t be afraid to discuss anything specific you are looking for in terms of design. Remember, not everything is possible depending on the wall surface and sort of mounting your looking for – but most should be! You’re the customer and our professional framers are here to help you achieve whatever look you are aiming for.

With a small-time feel.The PA Captial building is amazingly beautiful, and in great shape!  I had the privilege of being in the Superior Court rooms, and the artwork from 1920 (by Violet Oakley) was amazing.  Not sure if I can post those though.Glad I extended my work trip by a tiny bit to see more of this city. Worth a trip. And stay at @hiltonhbg.

Of standing their ground and not shying away from confrontation when needed.  And supporting our community, as we are owed the same respect as our male colleagues.  My hope is to continue these missions in my role as President of the Pittsburgh chapter of ASMP: The American Society of Media Photographers
