Re: Pinning machine

Re: Window mount pricing/BBest supplier update

Re: Hello from M33

Hi Sam
Welcome to the forum, there are many different ways of framing memorabilia, it's an interesting niche to get into, which, if successful, can demand high prices, ask away, someone hopefully will know the answer or know where you can find it, good luck.

Has the customer asked you to restore or are you doing it off your own back because the paint flaked off in your care If the customer has asked you because they don't want to go to a professional restorer, then has it's been said many time before ' Don't let the customer's problem become your proble...

Re: Need a little help - budding home framer.

First of all you frame to enhance the artwork, not to match a totally different picture in the same room, not to match the deco of the room, not because the customer likes pink etc They have to see the frame and mount around / next to the artwork, to get a sense of scale, colour contrast, and trying...

Re: Stretcher or Strainer

Printed canvases seem to be made of man made fibers, so seem not to suffer too much from expansion / contraction problems, so really don't need to be adjustable as natural fiber canvases, well that's my theory anyway :sweating:

Re: Bambi VT 150 Compressor for sale

We know Easton, we used to have friends who lived there, and the walk down by the Church Ope is very nice, we might just pop in and see you while we are in the area
I will give you first dabs on the compressor, until you've seen it .

Is it alright to bring our greyhound in, if we pop in. :rock:
