5 reasons why you need custom framing in your life

How many times in your life have you had something custom framed? We’re guessing you can count it one hand… or maybe not at all. People often think, “I don’t need to get my art custom framed,” or “It’s nice, but it’s not for me.” Well, here are some reasons to rethink that.

  1. We all deserve beauty in our lives.  Beauty is underrated and overlooked in our fast paced, high-tech world.  Having something personal in your home to admire and appreciate brings good feelings into your everyday life.  Framing is an easy way to do this, but it could be something like a tropical fish or, or… dang it – we’re having trouble thinking of an example that you couldn’t frame!
  2. Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.  We often hear customers say that they don’t want to spend a lot of money and they don’t want anything fancy.  Custom framing doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate.  But jeez Louise, if yer putting it on the wall in your home where you’ll see it morning, noon and night, do it right!  Just a $10 print?  Well, it’s gonna look like just a $10 print if you put it in an off-the-shelf poster frame.
  3. Express yourself.  Custom framing fulfills a need that we all have: to express our personalities.  We do it with clothes, our hair – all of the personal choices that we make.  It’s a way to let others know who you are and what you care about in a way that words cannot.
  4. No one likes R rated walls.  It might’ve been cool for David Addison when Maddie Hayes visited his apartment for the first time (what, too obscure? – Google it), but in the real world it’d be pretty weird if you went over to a friend’s home and the walls were *gasp* naked.
  5. Function.  Photos on the computer?  Diploma in a drawer?  Kids art on the fridge with magnets?  No good!  Pure and simple – custom framing protects your art or other items and allows you to view them.  Don’t hide your life and don’t wait for time and the elements to turn your memories into a, uh, memory.

Maybe this’ll getchya thinking differently about some of the cherished items in your life.  Chances are, if it’s something that you consider worth owning and you plan on keeping it, then it’s worth having it custom framed.

What are some ways that custom framing has added value to your life?

    I work with a lot of parents who frame their children’s artwork and sometimes get sticker shock as they haven’t done much custom framing in the past. But, they don’t blink when spending $800 plus for a couch. I like to share with them that in 25 years their children aren’t gonna have any memory of that couch, but they will cherish the items their parents took the time to protect and display. Quality custom framing is easy to fall in love with and, if done right, can be some of the most loved items in the home.
