NEAT IDEAS

 

New products are always cropping up. Finding fun and interesting ways to use them is always exciting. From dry erase laminates that allow you to write on your pictures to chalkboard finishes that allow you to write on your frames, there is always something new to discover.

 

 

Hand cut to shape

This was a custom order for the Alberta government.  Trevor painstakingly jig sawed and filed around the edge to match the shape of our wonderful province.  Everyone was thrilled with the results!

 

Speciality v-groove mat cutting

This certificate shows off one of our v-groove designs.  We chose to add the design in only 2 corners so as not to be too overwhelming.  There are many styles to choose from.  Perhaps one could add that 'something extra' to your next project?

Frames within frames

This fun look is created by joining four frames together and surrounding them with an outer frame.  The photograph is then framed and centered on top.  Photograph courtesy of Photography by Karen.

DRY ERASE LAMINATE

 Write-on Laminated plaque mounts

Our new dry erase laminate can be applied to almost any picture or photograph. Imagine the possibilities!

Stacked frames

Your treasure can quickly go from nice to WOW with just a few simple tweaks.  This timepiece was tilted and matted with a wider border to give it more "presence".  Three frames were then stacked together to produce a layered look.
