Why Choose Applewood Gallery?
Words of advice from FACTS (Fine Art Care and Treatment
Standards organization):It simply is not enough to pick your
frame shop from the phone book, or make your decision
based upon price alone. Custom framing involves more than
just a frame, glass and mats. When choosing a framer ask about materials and practices; ask about preservation framing, training and professional associations. A diploma or certificate is not necessarily a guarantee of quality; experience is the best teacher. Keep in mind that custom framing is just that - designed and built to your specifications, in accordance with standards that will protect your artwork for years to come. All materials and techniques used at Applewood Gallery meet or exceed FACTS standards for conservation and preservation. For more information on FACTS please visit www.artfacts.org.
