Preserve a piece of family history.

Think outside of the box.  Framing isn’t only for displaying prints and paintings, it can also be a great way to showcase a beautiful silk scarf with family history.  This TWA scarf belonged to the customer’s mother who was a flight attendant.  We added the drop in the mat to display the metal pins, sometimes the littlest details can make a world of difference.

Start your art collection today by taking cues from this young investor!

This happy client chose to begin investing in art when he fell in love with original works he found online.  Purchased through Etsy, these two paintings arrived unstretched and without frames.  He asked us to complete the presentations for a dramatic addition to his contemporary home.  Using floater frames for these pieces allows the viewer to appreciate the edges of the canvas.

Purchasing original works online is a great way to begin your art collecting career.  Art Source & Design will help you chose unique framing that accents your artwork. We also have a wide variety of works available as fine art giclees, printed in limited edition, by our very own Eric Martin Schmidt.

Highlight unique original artwork with simple framing.

This budding young artist created vibrant original paintings on canvas!  She chose to highlight her work with simple, yet elegant frames.  This is an example of two ways to frame a canvas painting.  The piece on the left brings out the lighter tones in the painting and covers the canvas edges.  The piece on the right uses a simple floater frame and allows the view to see the canvas edges.

Check out this specialty framing – glass on glass sandwich.

We have done this technique before but the subject matter was not as interesting as this project. This technique has no matting but still creates a visual space between the subject matter and the frame.

  • This technique involves using two pieces of glass with the item in between.
  • However, you can’t just sandwich the items, because it’s never a good idea to have your art touching the glass.
  • We address this by creating space between the two pieces of conservation glass.

Think of a special occasion or event you attended and how nice it would be to use this technique to preserve that memory.

The end result is a very unique and clean look that showcases the items brilliantly.

Satisfied client frames family history.

One of our clients picked up his framing recently and was thrilled with the result.  The photographs show family members and the different hardware stores they owned around Kansas.  A subtly aged and distressed frame with a simple same-color double mat was the perfect accent to the old photographs.  Finally, of course, all conservation materials made this an investment his great grandchildren can enjoy!!
