They Never Forget

They Never Forget
A client brought this beautiful photograph of an elephant in to THE FRAME STUDIO as a memory of a wonderful trip and much time spent in an artist's market being enthralled with the art.  Once he and his wife saw this piece, they had to have it. Picking out custom framing for this art was easy - it needed to be simplistic but could be more bulky to balance out the size and darkness of the elephant.  When we found this framing combination, there was no question it was the right one. The detail in this elephant portrait is unbelievable, and the framing helps accentuate it. Plus - the size o...

Framing Redo

Framing Redo
A client brought in two very cool pieces to THE FRAME STUDIO that were framed back in the 80s - and boy did the framing show that! (SEE BELOW. When is the last time you saw malachite laminate?) These two pieces of art done on plexi are of her and her husbands astrological signs. (Isn't that sweet?) She wanted custom frame them to update these two pieces to fit her current décor.  Working with the colors in her home, she found a framing combination that now brings them back to life and ties them together better. So you need to redo the framing for something you love?  Call us to make an...

A Father and Son’s 4 Year Journey

A Father and Son’s 4 Year Journey
A father and son team has spent the passed 4 years going to golf memorabilia shows in search of items involving their favorite American Amateur golfer Bobby Jones. He was the co-founder of the Masters Tournament.  Their collection involved such things as golf cards, his autograph, photos, and postage stamps.  The clients wanted to keep the memorabilia in their original display cases, and we were happy to oblige.  THE FRAME STUDIO put together a custom shadow box to house the depth of the display cases. The framing combination that we chose was rugged and outdoorsy. We put matting and glass o...

Captivating Art

Captivating Art
We at THE FRAME STUDIO had a lot of fun with two cool client's of ours who have a three very interesting paintings done by artist Loui Jover.  Their idea was to frame the art to protect them after the damage that they had sustained while being unframed and folded during numerous moves. The art was so powerful, that simplicity became the key for the custom framing package.  A modern bright glossy white frame was used to contrast the aged and weathered look of the pieces to give them a more polished look.  Our client's loved the look, and so do we.

An Elegant Ketubah with an Simple Solution

An Elegant Ketubah with an Simple Solution
A Ketubah is a beautiful way to declare your love.  Many involve intricate illustrations, patterns, cut outs, and even embossed pieces of foil.  THE FRAME STUDIO recently had a client bring in this amazingly intricate lace cut ketubah for custom framing.  The only colors other than the white of the paper and the black of the text were a few spots of reflective gold leaf.  The simple white 8 ply mat that was chosen gives depth, while the matt gold board behind the ketubah shows through to accentuate the cut pattern in the paper without being as harsh as black or brown .  Both work along with th...

The Size of Art

The Size of Art
When custom framing art for your home, not only do you have to consider the style of the environment the art is going in, but you must also consider the SIZE of the space.  We at THE FRAME STUDIO know that too many people put art that is too small on a vast wall.  The Little's Photography portrait shown here over the fireplace is 30" x 40" with  a 4 1/2" wide frame around it.  Think of how much different the space would look if the portrait was only 16 x 20!  The space in the entry way over the chairs is much larger, and the size of the portrait is 40" x 60" with 2 frames stacked that eq...

Good, Better, Best!

Good, Better, Best!
"Good, better, best.  Never let it rest. Until your good is better and the better is the best!"  We all remember this rhyme from grade school that teaches us about adjectives. If you have ever been to THE FRAME STUDIO, you have seen our GOOD, BETTER, BEST wall.  It shows how using different framing choices can completely transform a piece of art.  One of the most obvious differences in these three pieces is seen in the type of glass that is used. The GOOD glass on the left has a special UV coating that reflects 99% of the UV rays to protect the colors of the art from fading over time, an...

The Little Tow Boat That Could

The Little Tow Boat That Could
Kim, is a frequent and favorite client of Little's Photography. She has done underwater shoots with her children and had them framed at The Frame Studio. She recently brought in a sentimental piece for framing. It was an old poem with drawings that her mother-in-law found in an old book. The poem was written by Kim's husband Jim when he was little. Jimmy's teacher had asked he and his classmates to write about something they were interested in; he chose to write about tow boats. He even illustrated his writing with a nice little drawing of a tow boat. Now fast forward to today, and Jim owns hi...

Big expectations for Small pieces

A lot of the more elaborate frame designs done here at The Frame Studio tend to be rather large pieces. I think this has to do with the clients expectations not being very high of small pieces. But every now and then a client comes in with a small piece they have a vision for and the end result looks so great. This is one of those scenarios. These two paintings (about 5x5) we're acquired while on a clients vacation. With the paintings being so colorful and the frame with a bold design, the white inlaid liner lets the painting breathe while adding to the overall size of the finished piece. This...
