Q. Why is framing so expensive?
A. GOOD QUESTION.......The truth lies in that the process of custom framing involves quality materials and sound knowledge in assembling these materials. Custom Framing is labor intensive, and requires skills and training that are specialized. Obviously, the size of an item will influence the price, but also the type of mounting, glass and other variables all contribute. Compared to other custom made items, window treatments or furniture for example, custom framing is actually modestly priced. Keep in mind, that a well executed custom framed art piece will last many years for you and your family. Remember also, that a poorly designed frame may actually do the artwork harm.
