Custom Picture Frames in Deerfield Beach, FL
Since the framer chooses each component of a custom picture frame individually, every aspect of the framing project can be customized. The choice begins with the frame molding, which can be either of wood or metal, and extends to the glazing, backing, matting, and hardware. The backing materials, which are the materials that the artwork is mounted on, are available in standard, acid free, and self-adhesive options. As for matting, not only are there hundreds of colors and conservation grades to choose from, but a custom framing project can use two or more mats to give a truly distinctive look. Since they are made to a customer’s unique specifications, custom frames are more expensive than ready-made frames and often require a week or more to make.
Ready-made picture frames are mass produced to one of several standard sizes which are usually the size of photography prints. Since they are mass produced, the framer cannot change individual framing components. In addition to wood and metal, these frames can be made of several low-cost materials such as plastic and fiberglass.
Which Type of Frame is Best
The truth is that there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to frame types. In one project, a ready-made frame will work just fine, while in others a more expensive custom picture frames will be best. It really depends on the framing project in question. As a rule of thumb, a ready-made frame is used when the objects being framed are cut to a standard size and are not precious.
Custom made picture frames can be used when framing sentimental or expensive pieces of artwork. In addition to accommodating artwork of all sizes, the framer is usually also concerned about the preservation characteristics of the framing materials used. In this case, the goal is to preserve the artwork as much as possible by using acid free materials.
