There isn’t much we can’t frame

When someone visits one of our stores for the first time we often tell them, “There isn’t much we can’t frame.” It’s not bragging – it’s a challenge! Well, this is the time of year when customers’ imaginations begin to ramp up and they accept that challenge. We’ve been getting some great jobs that… well, let’s just say our problem-solving skills have been put to the test recently. Here’s just the tip of the iceberg from some our stores.
A pair of painted leaves, complete with a fillet on the inside edge of a suede mat.
A Christmas gift from a son to his father – part of a flag from the naval ship that he served on.
An actual Bobby Orr hockey shirt.
Painted feathers. Mounting these was… tricky.
Tickets from a father & son visit to a Red Sox game, complete with the foul balls they came home with.
One of our staff did a yeoman’s job mounting these. She devised an archival method, meaning they can be safely removed if the customer should ever so desire, and they’d be intact and untouched. Bravo!
We love getting these unique projects. Part of what makes our job so interesting is that every task is so different. We’re gratified by the fact that customers entrust us with possessions that are valuable to them for so many reasons. And at this time of year, that makes it feel like we’re Santa’s elves.
