3 Places to Decorate with Posters

  • Dorm rooms: Know someone headed off to college? Help liven up that dreary dorm room with a colorful poster of their favorite artist’s work, a style they love, or subject matter that reflects their passions.
  • Work spaces: Art has been shown to help reduce stress, boost creativity and productivity, and enhance employee morale. Because they are so affordable, posters are a sensible, attractive choice for offices, hallways, and break rooms.
  • Kitchens, Laundries, and Baths: Art posters make a dramatic statement, yet are easily replaced in case of damage from humidity, making them ideal for areas where environmental conditions would be rough on your fine art.

Imagine where you might hang one of these …

  • Works featuring the recipient’s favorite place, hobby, or other interest
  • If the recipient is a collector, for instance of model trains or antique tools, pictures that fit into their collection

Don’t Miss the Savings on Surplus Framing Material

Do you ever get to the point where you just can’t stand your overflowing closets anymore? We’re there and we’re doing some pre-Spring cleaning, so take advantage of the big savings right now on surplus framing material.

What’s that, you ask?

Max-Hayslette-Autumn-Memories-FM365-2When we order material for a custom framing job, we have to buy minimum lengths of moulding, often more than we need to complete the job. It’s the same with mats. There is often “fall out” or extra after we cut what we need.

These are beautiful, top-quality materials, so we store the excess until we have another, smaller project for the same moulding or matting. Of course, you know what happens, eventually the storeroom starts to bulge at the seams. That’s why we’re selling our surplus materials at huge savings during to anyone who tells us the Word of the Month.

March Word of the Month

In case you missed the February eNews, the Word of the Month for March is LION.

“The early bird gets the best selection,” so don’t delay.

Take advantage of this opportunity to properly display those small art treasures collecting in your closets, drawers and shelves. While supplies last, we will help you create a lovely space for just about any project, 16″ x 20″ or smaller, using significantly discounted, high quality surplus moulding and matting. What could be better for chasing away the deep winter blues than finally getting to enjoy artwork you love?

If you have questions or a project in mind, please give us a call at 503-245-8001, email Deann, or visit the Gallery Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 6 pm or by appointment.

February Surplus Picture Framing Sale

Surplus Framing Works Great for Shadow Box Projects Too!

We don’t mean to get personal, but how many unframed pieces of art do you have in the back of your closets? You know, the ones you keep thinking you should pull out and bring in for framing? If you’re like some of our friends, there are several pieces stuck back there in the dark.

We get it, we have a similar problem with surplus materials. We’ve got a big stack in the back room and it’s time to do something about it. So, this month we’re offering big savings on surplus moulding and matting for 16″ x 20″ pictures and smaller.

How Can You Save Big on Surplus Framing Material?

When we order material for a custom framing job, we have to buy minimum lengths of moulding, often more than we need to complete the job. It’s the same with mats. There is often “fall out” or extra after we cut what we need.

These are beautiful, top-quality materials, so we store the excess until we have another, smaller project for the same moulding or matting. Of course, you know what happens, eventually the storeroom starts to bulge at the seams. That’s why we’re selling our surplus materials at huge savings right now to anyone who tells us the Word of the Month for February.

Grab your smaller art out of the closet and head on down to the Gallery to get in on the savings. What could be better for chasing away the deep winter blues than finally getting to hang and enjoy artwork you love?
