What should you look for in a Picture Framer?
Because picture framing is as much a science as it is an art, you want your framer to be well versed in the technical aspects of custom framing. The first rule of framing is the same as the Hippocratic Oath – “First Do No Harm.” Whether it is a child’s drawing, needlework, diploma, photograph, sporting memorabilia, or priceless heirloom, you want to ensure the mounting, matting, frame and glass protects it all for a lifetime. The experience and longevity of Art Poster and its framers are unprecedented in the picture faming, art industry. Drawing on over 29 years of experience. We have technical expertise as well as creativity, which leads us to the second thing you should look for when searching for a good framer…
We said earlier that picture framing is as much a science as an art – well, here’s where the “art” part comes into play. A framer can tell you a white mat, and a wooden frame for your print is ok – and maybe that’s just what you need or want. We can certainly do that. But what if you want something … more? How about something that makes you say, “Wow!” and makes you smile every time you walk by it as it hangs on your wall. That’s what Andrew and Christian as designers and framers at Art Poster framing do every day. From the simplest framing of a $10 poster to a complicated shadowbox with artfully arranged priceless antiques, Andrew and Christian can select the perfect frame design to enhance your prized artwork.
Let’s say you have something framed, someone knocks it off your wall and it breaks or the art slips off its mount. You try to take it back to the framer, but lo and behold, they have gone out of business. Art Poster has been here since the 1980’s making it one of the most reliable custom art framers in Tasmania, many of our satisfied customers will attest tothat. We hope to be here another 100 years (although not with the current owners, we’d be too old!).
Our framing is guaranteed for life – yours and ours!
You might notice that nowhere above do we mention price. Of course, price is important. Most people don’t have a fortune lying around these days. (If you do, however, can I interest you in some beautiful art?) Art Poster’s prices are competitive – we wouldn’t be in business this long if they weren’t. However, generally speaking, 60% off an inflated price or cheap framing (as many of our competitors advertise or offer) will not save you money – especially in the long run. In our 29 years plus in the business, we have “fixed” many, 60% off or cheap framing jobs.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
