Re: New framers and secondhand equipment.

May I chip in here ? Preferably before you start buying any equipment get some training :yes: Then the chances of buying the wrong equipment, stuff off EBay with parts missing ( there was such a post yesterday) will be greatly reduced Also any trainer will save your hours of wasted experimentation (...

Re: Where to order card - large size!

Thank you to Steve and NYAF (aka Mark Lacey) I assume that when she joined she will have had to provide an email address Can we ask John to fire off a short email asking her to see how much help was offered, but which she never ever saw. :head: And saying the least she can do is to tell us how and w...

Re: Where to order card - large size!

Sophie came on here May 30th and apart from a second visit May 30 hasn't been back. So most of the helpful replies made after May 30th haven't been seen by her.

Re: Selling up

Norrie, You are not dreaming! :lol: I've recently discussed exactly the same concept with a 3 friends, all well past retirement age, but who still have all their equipment + boards + mouldings etc and still do the odd frame job. They all have the same idea as you. So much better to sell the entire l...

I was chatting with Andreas Shiatis in Cyprus recently and asked him how long have you been framing. 68 year s was his answer ....got me thinking, Is there a story here for Art & Framing Today, and also on here of course :giggle: Born July 9th 1940 he started when he was 12. His father George said a...

I look at the French equivalent of this forum very infrequently. Nothing has changed since I last reported.

Re: Where to order card - large size!

Alan, Maybe you meant to write A! A0 is 841 x 1189mm ( 33 x 46 inches). I cant imagine the post office handling such a huge size, but maybe their parcel service does. What condition might it arrive in? But Sophie wrote she wanted 840 x 640 which is a tad over A1 (594 x 841mm) For speed and convenien...

Re: Where to order card - large size!

Sophie, The size you ask for is half of the normal smallest sheet bought by framers As Steven suggests ask your local framer You may get the cold shoulder, as the framer will see it as taking work he/she would like to do. Bit like going into a restaurant and asking the chef to sell you a piece of me...

An old framer friend of mine, told me cover your new bench with some left over carpet.

Re: Undermount

Prospero wrote so they have an enormous amount of stuff book-mounted and stashed away in drawers. I once visited an exhibition in Leipzig, solely for Museum people. I learnt much, but one fact sticks with me 96% of what the average museum has at any one time is in storage. One company did nothing el...

Re: Sex toy sales are up over 100% in Norway and Denmark during March

Steve,

I like it :head:
The youthful colour scheme will appeal to the younger generation, just the types we need to encourage into frame shops.

Why not show 2 pics, 1 empty, and a second with a kids painting of a rainbow. or similar virus related art work?
