Over the years, I have matted and framed my own art. I am able to cut glass, matts and order a variety of custom frames to put a designers touch on any piece of art. I can advise you of different techniques and ways of dealing with petite point, hockey jerseys, photography or shadowboxing golf clubs, medals or other paraphernalia. No job is too small.
