A good frame showcases a piece of art, while also protecting it. More art is damaged by improper framing than any other cause. When something is framed properly you see a complete package. There’s nothing worse than walking into a gallery or home and seeing a gorgeous piece of art and finding yourself distracted by the frame.
At Schmidt’s Custom Framing we offer custom framing options from basic designs to those meeting the highest industry standards. We frame everything from museum-quality masterpieces to children’s art projects. No matter the subject matter or style, we have framing options and expertise to exhibit and protect your art.
A framer’s job is to protect the artwork and we take this task seriously at Schmidt’s Custom Framing. Museum-quality conservation framing uses the highest-quality material and museum approved techniques to protect delicate works of art from the surroundings and natural aging.
Custom Gold Leafing
Custom gold leaf frames give artwork a regale finishing touch.
The art form of hand carving and gilding dates back to the ancient Egyptians. Traditionally the carving and gilding skills, techniques and secret recipes were passed down within families from generation to generation. Today, few people have mastered the carving and custom gilding process and these techniques are held as guarded secrets.
You can frame almost anything with a shadowbox.
A shadow box allows you to preserve memorabilia and tell a story. This type of custom framing allows for endless creativity in displaying your treasures, while securing the items and protecting them for years to come.
Professional Frame Restoration
Old, original frames can be works of art unto themselves. Sometimes after generations they begin to fall apart. At Schmidt’s Custom Framing we can save antique frames. We translate our gilding and carving skills to match the frame, so the finished product is useable and also retains the integrity of its original appearance without looking recently updated.
Other framing options
We know that art comes in many forms and at Schmidt’s Custom Framing we have frames for whatever precious items you want adorning your walls. Specially built plein air frames are popular among local artists. Floater frames offer a great way to showcase giclee prints on canvas. We also create frames for showcasing mirrors and carry a line of hand-built and stitched leather frames from Peru.
