AFTER SALES SERVICE AT CREATIVE FRAMING SOLUTIONS

We know that customers often overlook the logistics of hanging their framed works.

Safe transport (especially if you are doing it yourself) and hanging it properly are things that are best left to the expert.

Customers often ask us about delivery.  If you are very busy, if you have large works, or just want to be sure it is done properly, consider having this done by a professional.

We recommend ‘The Art of Hanging’.  They pick-up, deliver, install and provide a value service.

See their website –

Join many of our happy customers who choose this service.

Li’l DaVinci cabinets allow work to be displayed, changed and preserved

much more effectively than the traditional ‘ fridge door concept’ and without the ongoing cost of new frames with each creation.

WHY GLASS IS SO IMPORTANT

Framers now have access to wonderful, affordable glass that used to be exclusively for

museums and curators.

 

When we offer you’ Ultra Vue’ glass and ‘Clarity’ glass, we do this because we know how amazing your work will look.

It appears as though there is no glass over the work, you can enjoy viewing without reflection, the colours are more vibrant and the art detail is clearer.

We also offer  Tru Vue Conservation Clear  99% UV Protection glass, and recommend this because your work will have the best product available, to prevent fading and light damage.

You may not have known about or considered these types of glass before, but we can offer you these now, as they are considered an important part in custom framing to conservation standards.

We can, and do still use, standard glass if you prefer.

BLACK CAVIAR IN SCHOOL FUNDRAISER

20150222_123803One of Australia’s favourite racehorses retired in 2013, but she still busy breeding for future racing hopes, and making money for a local school. Greg Morton was asked to utilise some pretty amazing memorabilia from the great mare’s history and frame it for a charity auction. Greg says that the finished work, which measured approximately 120cm by 80cm when completed, was wonderful to create. As everyone who has worked with silk knows, it is a very delicate fabric and sometimes a challenge to manage. ‘Black Caviar’ was a very popular item in the auction and the organisers were delighted with the proceeds.
