What’s The Big Deal?

Why Prints

When my grandpa passed away I was reminded by how important printed artwork is. There were prints of all sizes covering the whole front of his funeral service. My family spent the whole time looking at photos, remembering the cool things he’d done in life, and pointing and laughing about the crazy things he had done. Like riding a bull.

Were it not for prints, I wouldn’t know what my grandpa looked like as a young man. I wouldn’t know about my dad’s ridiculous hair styles growing up.

What’s The Big Deal?

My Story

Today we have Facebook. And when I started out in this business, I shared high-resolution digital files with my clients on a USB stick to cater to that reality. But what I found is that my clients wouldn’t get their photos printed, and the ones who tried struggled. I was doing a disservice to my clients by making them do all of the work.

That’s why I took on handling the whole process for my clients, from planning to shooting, to choosing your favourites and finishings, to printing and delivering the artwork. This way my clients could visualize what they’ll be receiving, they can get all of the advice they need on what will work best for their home, and they can save hours of agony trying to order from third-party printers online.

Framing

These beautiful frames are carefully assembled and printed on Matte photographic paper, mounted with a thick 8 ply mat board, including a front acrylic and arrive ready to hang out of the box.

LOCALLY-CRAFTED FRAMES

On request, I will have your frame locally-built from reclaimed wood. These frames are rustic and unique, and make an excellent finishing for your feature piece.

Custom Framing

Custom framing is quoted on a per-job basis. Once we choose the location and size of your frame, I’ll take you into the gallery personally to help you choose your frame, glass, and mounting. Your finished frame will come with a paper back and wire for hanging.

Vintage Frames

Vintage framing is available in frames I have in stock or in frames you already own. I will remove the glass and have your photographs professionally mounted inside. These pieces are absolutely gorgeous!

Canvases
