The 3P’s of bespoke picture framing
Simply put bespoke framing acts to Present, Protect and Preserve the artwork/subject.
Well-presented imagery is a complete joy, its uniqueness, freshness and identity cannot but help evoke emotion in people.
As Art is not of a standard size, and different media vary in depth, clarity and properties individual tailor made frames are necessary.
A bespoke picture framer will enhance the art work by designing and constructing a creative well proportioned frame using techniques most suited to the project. The choice of mounts and mouldings is enormous and one can always be found to suit the customer and project.

Protect and Preserve
The longevity for artwork comes from a combination of proper framing and protection from environmental damage whist on display. Damage will devalue artwork and documents.
Artwork, particularly paper, is primarily under threat from the following:
Ultra violet light
Humidity and damp
Extreme heat and cold
Insects and mould
Air bourne pollutants
The quality of materials and techniques used by the framer.
Fine Art Trade Guild (FATG) framers aim to slow the rate of natural decay and damage from these threats by using best practice techniques and best quality materials, and framing to a conservation level where possible.
Whilst ready made, of the shelf, frames are initially cheaper they often do not aesthetically enhance the artwork, and in the long run often cause irreversible damage.
