Conservation Framing: Preserve Your Art and the Environment.

Picture framing is not often considered in the conversation regarding eco-friendly industries based on the nature of the products that are traditionally used. Most frames are made out of, you guessed it, wood, and that wood comes from our forests. We are people who care deeply about our environment and cherish every moment we get to spend in the beautiful places our world has to offer.

As a picture framers and people who care about our environment it is import to us that we try to find ways to minimize the impact that our business has on the planet. That is why we carry  Framerica®’s Bonanzawood® moulding line. It is a line of moulding that is made of  recycled, post consumer goods, such as; pallets, skids, construction materials, trim ends and saw dust. This “waste material” would otherwise be destined for our landfills or burned. The product is a composite wood of the highest quality, value, and is very consistent. We recommend it to all artists who are showing in our gallery and need framing, for its affordable price-point, and to anyone who is looking for a great moulding made in America with the environment in mind. By choosing Framerica®’s Bonanzawood® and indirectly supporting their mass recycling effort – our business and our clients effectively  keep hundreds of thousands of mature trees standing. Framericas production facility in New York has been designated an “EPP Downstream Licensed Facility” signifying its pledge to produce mouldings using some of the greenest core materials available.

In honor of our 2nd annual “Surface Film” photography show to benefitTrout Unlimited, we are currently running a sale of 20% off your entire order when you use Framerica®’s Bonanzawood® moulding! Lets work together conserve your art and our planet!

Collection

A customer brought in these vintage postcards she’d been collecting for years.  A native of Chicago, the images of it’s most famous icons will keep her home town close.  They were framed using an espresso Framerica profile.  We love Framerica, a company based in the USA that does it’s manufacturing here and is environmentally friendly.  We carry more than 50 of their very economical profiles.  The postcards are floating on a Crescent Select acid free mat and each one is raised with a piece of acid free foam behind it.  The result is a nice drop shadow making the look very three dimensional.  Spacers are added to the sides between the TruVue Conservation Clear glass and the mat.  It’s so important in Colorado to keep your art from touching the glass, preventing it from adhering.
