Ever wondered why you should let the pros handle your family photos? Well, as they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words," but when it's professionally framed, it's priceless. Don't just tuck away your precious memories in dusty albums or worse leave them on your hard drive and never print them; let us frame them with love and care, preserving those cherished moments for generations to come.

Here are a few moments with our own family that we think deserve a frame around them, we love our crew and we love making memories with them, and in today's fast and crazy pace world we love the idea of putting some of our family memories into a frame and on the wall so the whole crew can be reminded of the fun we have together, then when we have new favourite memories we can swap out the photos in the frames.

 

If you like the idea of reminding your kiddo's young and not as young anymore of the wonderful times had when your all together then give us a call and we can explain how we can do this for your family photos also.

Creativity Curated - Sunset Gallery - Port Macquarie 10Creativity Curated - Sunset Gallery - Port Macquarie 10Framer Scott is a second generation art & picture framer, after taking over the business from his parents he has moved the business twice.

Each time allowing for growth of products, services and ease of access to his business clients.

The move to Central Road has allowed him to have a workshop over double the size of the Murray Street space, he has a delivery dock and a booth for re-finishing & restoration of existing frames.

This allows him the ability to create and work on oversize jobs including works like this one pictured.
Now if you have met Scott you will know he is over 6ft tall, that makes this a very large item.

2.Make sure the taping around the back edging of your frame is all in place, this helps to keep moisture out - and also those pesky summer gnats from getting in.

3.Check to see if the flow of light has changed in the house, if your frame and artwork are getting direct sun, move it or bring it in for an upgrade to UV glass.

4.Look over your matt boards, if you see spots or discolouration (thats mould or acid) that means its got a problem, but just like if you get rust in your car its totally treatable if you catch it early.

If any of these hot tips are making you sweat then just drop in and see the super chill Framer Scott and he can get you sorted and back to feelin groovy in no time.
