Weird. You remember who you dealt with?


At that point I was talking to Amy, had like 3 prints with me and when she mentioned she'd drymount the one I wanted just spacers for, I passed on getting any of them framed

Update: These guys did and excellent job in both assisting in the selection and constructing the frame for this piece. I will be using them for my next piece.

I had no plans for a fillet but when proposed and trialed I felt it really added to the piece. They also do custom etched mats.

Silver/black frame with a dark blueish hue and gradient, industrial metal fillet. The frame edge reminds me of cooling fins, I like that industrial feel...

I've had several pieces done by Jay's Frames on Yale. Their prices are very competitive and they know their stuff. I always get plenty of consultation attention and we don't quit until everyone's happy with the choices. I've had them do a float, a custom painted mat, an all-white, fillets, you name it. It's all been damn near perfect. Right now they're doing a piece with hand-wrapped mats for me. I really can't recommend them enough.

Had pretty much all of my stuff done at Aaron Bothers on Holcombe. They'll do everything right, but it's best if you go in there knowing exactly what you want. As for their archival materials, one of the items they framed for me was sitting in about 6" of water when those floods came through and it's still in damn good shape.
