    The Art of Framing

    From now through the end of October, Trefler’s is extending a 15% discount on your next custom framing project.


    Trefler’s custom frame studio is open for socially-distanced consultations, by appointment. Our custom frame studio is an invaluable asset to our full range of restoration and conservation services, one which we are proud to have on-site to guide clients through what can otherwise be a daunting task.  With the collaboration and assistance of our framing specialists, creating the right custom frame, display case, or plinth is a simple and enjoyable process.

    Why Framing Matters

    The benefits of framing are first and foremost protective. A widely understood example is selecting an appropriate UV-blocking glass or Plexi, which will prevent light damage to an artwork. But framing also serves as quite literally a frame to highlight or accentuate a piece.
    Whether fabricating a display plinth to showcase a 17th Century ceramic vessel, or a custom box to preserve an antique manuscript, there are countless examples of how tailored display methods both enhance and protect your artwork, and a seasoned framer learns the nuances of key details which can elevate a simple frame job, to a work of art in of itself.

    “I gravitated towards framing because it can be very creative, fun and educational working alongside other artists and designers. I love creating new frames and seeing how it can change the perception and effect of certain artwork on the viewer or the room environment.”

    • Showcasing artworks on canvas with float frames

      Float frames owe their name to the illusion they create of “floating” a canvas artwork. This simple trick of the eye is no feat of complex engineering, but rather simply, is made possible because the underlying structure of a canvas artwork lends itself to the framing technique. Unlike works on paper, canvases have an internal frame, and are created by stretching a material such as cotton, linen or another fabric of choice across a wooden frame of “stretchers”. These stretchers are what give canvas paintings both depth and rigidity.
