FRAMING, GLAZING AND HANGING
We specialize in creating framing that will make your special memories last for many years.
Old Main Gallery & Framing follows some traditional practices, but embraces technology and changes that improve the products we produce for our customers.
One example is the early acceptance of a robotic computerized mat cutter, which provides increased accuracy and creative design opportunities. Another example is a computer driven visualization program which allows customers to see computer generated virtual images of their artwork with various framing options. This makes accurate visualizations available and allows long distance framing design to take place. Old Main has many long distance, loyal framing customers who use this service.
We believe custom picture framing should combine the desired outcomes of enhanced presentation plus attention to protection of the artwork or items being framed. Our staff is highly trained and ready to meet your needs.
We once framed a hand gun and news article about two Bank robbers from the 1920’s.

The main purpose of glazing is for protection. Glazing is divided into two product categories: glass and acrylic. Glass is recommended for small and medium sized applications and acrylic is recommended for high value and large art work. Both glass and acrylic are available with ultra violet protection filtering properties. This feature reduces fading and material deterioration. Glass and acrylic are also available as glare-reduction alternatives. MUSEUM GLASS and MUSEUM ACRYLIC are both optically coated to reduce glare without distortion. REFLECTION CONTROL GLASS and ACRYLIC commonly called non-glare utilize an etched surface which breaks up reflections, but creates a slightly fuzzy distortion. REGULAR GLASS and ACRYLIC offer protection from physical damage, but are not considered to be premium products.

Appropriate hangers for the weight and size of the art is very important. At Old Main Gallery & Framing we furnish quality hangers that are suitable for every piece of art we frame or sell.
