We use only the highest quality framing materials available. We suggest using conservation glass and rag matting on all of our projects, and we offer Museum glass and non-glare glass as well. We like to frame each piece so that it lasts a lifetime.
We love to use linen and suede matting ..the colors are so rich and vibrant. Uptown Custom Framing offers hand wrapped matting as well. You get a thicker richer looking mat, for just a little extra. We love using fine frames, made by hand from Italy. Roma Moulding has such unique and rich looking frames...often times bringing out the feel of the artwork..through the frame itself. Another frame company we use is the Canadian company Fotiou. It's a smaller company that offers framing styles not seen in other stores.
If liners are what you need..we've got them. We offer off white and wheat colored liners that come standard...but we also hand wrap our own liners in a wide variety of colors and fabrics. It's a fun way to add a little pop of color, when a mat may be too much.
We also try to buy locally when we can. Culver Art and Frame is just down the street and offers a large selection of frames and mats. We get deliveries from them each and every day..so framing something on the spot is not an issue.
There is nothing we can't do...Over the past 32 years, we have framed and installed large, complicated, valuable pieces. We also frame the tiniest of children's art. To us, here at Uptown Custom Framing, every single piece that we touch and get to frame is priceless. You can rest assured that your artwork is safe and will be treated with the utmost respect. We care and it surely shows!
