What is the normal process?
The design phase is a collaborative process. Beth and her staff will look at the best ways to achieve your goals. Is preservation a priority? Is a shadow box frame required? Knowing the background story of each piece being framed determines the best approach to each project.
How long will it take to complete my project?
Normal completion time is two weeks. Some projects can be completed much quicker than two weeks if materials are in-stock. More complicated projects require extra preparation and labor.
