We take pride in the fact that our frames are built using environmentally-friendly materials. The lumber we use for our frames is mostly sustainable grown and farmed oak, Poplar, pine and some Alder, Also, our traditional finishes are created using high-grade water-based paints and stains and either very low or zero V.O.C.
In addition to being environmentally-friendly, our frames are wonderful looking, very sturdy and feature a "smooth hand custom" finish. Each frame that we make goes through a 5 or sometimes 6 step finish process.

In regards to Framing: Measurements can and may be 1/32-1/16' off. We use real glass in our frames. We prefer the look and feel of glass over plexiglass (which scratches easily and collects static electricity so it is hard to get dust off of it). Though glass breakage is rare, postal folks do tend to throw boxes around, so on occasion we will encounter a broken pane of glass. If your glass has broken during shipment, please contact us and we will send you a new pane of glass ASAP.
OR IF YOU WANT...
If you hear broken glass rattling around in your box, DO NOT OPEN the package. Simply write "DAMAGED - RETURN TO SENDER" on the box and give it back to your carrier. They will send the box back to us and we will replace whatever needs to be replaced and ship it back to you ASAP.
