What are the Differences Between Purchasing a Ready-Made Picture Frame and a Custom Picture Frame?

There are several differences between purchasing an off-the-shelf, ready-made picture frame and going to a professional custom picture framer like SF Framing. Here are a few key differences to be aware of:

  1. Size and Design: Ready-made picture frames come in standard sizes and designs. Custom picture framing, on the other hand, allows you to choose the exact size and design that will best showcase your artwork.
  2. Quality of Materials: Ready-made frames are often made with lower-quality materials, such as plastic or low-grade wood. Custom picture framing allows you to choose high-quality materials that will protect your artwork and last for years to come.
  3. Preservation: A professional custom picture framer will use materials and techniques that help preserve your artwork over time, such as acid-free mats and UV-resistant glass. Ready-made frames may not offer the same level of protection, which could lead to damage or fading over time.
  4. Cost: Ready-made frames are generally less expensive than custom frames, but the price difference may not be significant depending on the size and quality of the frame you need. On the other hand, any additional cost of a custom frame may be worth it if you have a valuable or sentimental piece of artwork that you want to protect and display.
  5. Décor: When it comes to matching the décor of a room, custom picture framing offers more flexibility than ready-made frames. With a custom frame, you can choose the exact color, style, and finish that will complement your existing décor. Ready-made frames may not offer the same level of customization.

Overall, the decision between purchasing a ready-made, off-the-shelf picture frame and going to a professional custom picture framer will depend on your specific needs and preferences. If you’re looking for a simple and affordable way to frame a piece of artwork, a ready-made frame may be the way to go. However, if you have a valuable or sentimental piece of artwork that you want to protect and display, a custom frame from SF Framing may be the very best option. Contact us today!

Spring Cleaning the SF Framing Way!

Cleaning and tidying is the first step to adding new joy in your life!

If you haven’t heard of Marie Kondo, a Japanese organizing consultant, you have probably been living on a remote island. She has transformed lives with her little book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Kondo has set off a decluttering craze across the globe that has people purging their attics, basements, closets and garages.

The Life Changing Magic of Spring Cleaning.

Marie Kondo’s approach to tidying is a suggestion you place your hands on everything you own, ask yourself if it sparks joy, and if it doesn’t, thank it for its service and get rid of it. Next, when your most joy-giving belongings remain, put every item in a place where it’s visible, accessible, and if necessary, easy to grab and put back. We cannot think of a better way to place that joy-giving belonging in a visible and accessible place in your home than by putting it into a skillfully and professionally framed display. That’s where SF Framing can help you.
