Whether it's your favorite piece of art that you bought right after college or a special moment from your family’s vacations, you’ll want to show off your art or photographs in a way that makes them look as good as possible.

To ensure that your artwork is looking great, consider checking out custom framing solutions.

What To Look For In Custom Framing

When you’re looking into getting a custom framing job done for your artwork, you’ll want to look for an expert in the field. This will be especially true if your artwork is older and you need to ensure that it will be handled with the utmost care.

To find a custom framer who knows what’s best for your artwork, you should talk to multiple businesses to discuss the kind of art that you have on hand. They’ll be able to tell you if they’ve worked with a piece of art that's similar to yours before. The specialists at the store will also be able to suggest which kind of glaze might be best with your art. Some of the top choices are usually museum glass, high-index plexi, anti-glare/UV coatings, and regular glass.

Sometimes custom framers will also suggest that your canvas is stretched out to better fit the frame and most are people who have worked at a custom framing business for any length of time are experts at this.

Get A Quote

When talking to multiple businesses about the custom framing options for your artwork, you should also get a quote from each business. Sometimes businesses will have differences in their cost based on how much they charge for labor and how long they estimate it will take them to complete the project.

Other companies will use different materials and so they may charge more for what material they’re suggesting you use for the frame. Getting quotes will give you a general idea of the price range for your custom frame. From there, you can just pick the specialist that you feel most comfortable with.

Check Out Some Reviews Online

Another way to pick the custom framing company that you want to move forward with is through looking at some of the reviews that past customers have left online. This will help give you better knowledge into how those customers have felt about the business.

If you have a specific kind of art that you need to be hung, you can also request that the company send you a picture of any similar projects that they’ve worked on in the past. This can give you the peace of mind to know that your custom framing project will go as planned.

You may also want to check that the custom framing company includes an insurance policy, just in case anything does go wrong with the picture frames. If anything happens, the framing company will pay you back for the value of the artwork.
