Frequently Asked Questions

What is the turnaround on framing pieces?

  • Our Framers function on a first come, first served basis. The turnaround is determined on their current backlog, time of year, and the size of your order. Generally, pieces can take anywhere between 10 to 14 days to completion, longer on most holiday months.

Can we expedite the process by paying a fee?

  • Our Framers do not accept Rush fees. All orders are on a first come first served basis.

What can be framed?

  • Nearly everything can be framed. Challenging pieces are welcome for discussion. If you are uncertain about your piece, bring it in and have a free consultation with one of our skilled framers.

Is glass necessary?

  • No, but it is highly recommended. Ultraviolet rays are damaging to artwork. They cause yellowing paper, fading and/or change colors. All types of media can be affected and even our most cost effective glass reduces UV rays by 45%. Additionally, glass ensures that your delicate artwork is protected from airborne pollutants, dust and curious fingers; all of which can permanently discolor and damage your artwork.

Can you frame my artwork with materials I already own?

  • Yes and no. Frames from Estate Sales or Thrift Stores are workable, provided the materials are of quality and can be handled without sustaining damage. Our framers do not work with plastic, ceramic or store-bought, ready-made frames. Art Systems prides ourselves on outstanding craftsmanship, thus anything that will reduce the quality of the finished piece will not be accepted.

Why is plexiglass recommended for large pieces?

  • Plexiglass is recommended for any works that are 24" x 36" or larger. This is to relieve the weight of the final product. Glass is heavy and can cause strain on the frame, forcing the corners to separate and eventually break. The larger and heavier the glass, the more limited your moulding choice will be and increased difficulty to lift and transport.
