Custom Framing

The main purpose of a frame is to support and showcase your art and keepsakes while properly protecting it from damage in the years to come. At Village Art Center, we offer a wide variety of matting, fillets, and frames. Our staff is fully trained and is here to help you find the right frame style and size, as well as a glass and matting choice that works best for your piece.

There’s no limit to what we are capable of framing. We offer the finest quality products from top vendors such as Larson-Juhl, Max Moulding, Roma Moulding.

We do all of our work in-house using state-of-the-art equipment. Your artwork will not be transported out of the shop for any reason.

Conservation Materials

For any piece that is valuable, collectable, an original artwork, or of great long-term sentimental value, we offer “Conservation” framing materials to preserve it. "Conservation" framing refers to the materials used to frame your piece. Acid-Free, museum and rag matting is the only type of matting we sell. Many framers are still using regular, wood-pulp matboards that are inadequate for any frame job that needs to last. Your framed artwork will outlast all of the furniture, equipment and decor in your home.

Glass choices

Glass Choices

The piece shown here has two types of glass on it, showing you the differences in reflectivity. What you can't see is the difference in UV filtering to protect the art. The "Museum Glass" shown in the middle looks nearly invisible and protects the art, too.

Tips

Hanging Your Art

When hanging art you can get a good idea of how it will look by cutting out a piece of paper the same size as the outer edge of the frame and taping it to the wall. It is much easier to move the paper around than to change the positioning of the actual frame. On that same paper, you can make marks where you want to place your wall hooks. Then install the hooks over the paper and then tear the paper away.

Caring For Your Frame

Caring for your frame

Your frame is working hard to protect your artwork, memento, or document from damage caused by UV rays, dust, excess moisture, and other environmental factors.

You can help by following these rules of thumb.

  • Avoid placing in direct sunlight
  • Avoid excess moisture
  • Simply leave the framed piece alone with the exception of periodic cleaning
  • Feather dusting —helps remove dust particles that may land on the glass
  • Use a soft lint-free cloth or newsprint and glass cleaner. Never spray the cleaner on the glass. Instead spray onto the rag and then wipe the glass.

Village Art Center always provides specific directions for appropriate cleaner or cloths to keep your frame beautiful for generations.
