About

As a custom picture framer for the last 17 years, my favorite framing came from customers who would come in, lay down their art and say work your magic thus allowing me to use my creativity to its fullest.

One day a customer came in and asked if I could make one of my special mats to fit the 11 x 14 frame she had purchased from a big box store on sale. She explained she loved my mats but couldn't afford both the mat and the frame. If I made it standard size she could have both. I thought why not since an 8 x 10 or 11 x 14 silk mat in my shop starts at $129.00.

This got me thinking, if I focused on the most popular mats, I could buy materials in larger quantities, I can pass the lower the price along to my customers and everyone can have a specialized mat at a lower price. I started receiving orders from their friends and relatives from across the country and my Etsy shop was born.

The mat sizes are made in the standard 11 x 14 that will hold an 8 x 10, 5 x 7 or the newest 4 x 4 size for the budding Instagram photographers. The 8 x 10 will hold a 5 x 7 or a 4 x 4. These can be ready to hang or placed in a ready-made frame, or taken to your nearest frame shop.
