Top 5 Framing Tips
Friday, 26 September 2014 10:38

Making picture frames is, as they say, 'not rocket science' but like many things in life that at first appear to be quite simple, simple enough that anyone could do it, it does require some knowledge, an acceptance that there is a right way and a wrong way to do certain things, the correct tools and a willingness to learn.

Of course 'the right way' and 'the wrong way' are subjective terms and what might be right for one person could be wrong for another, however, there are a number of accepted 'best practices' that have been developed over many years by thousands of picture framers making countless thousands of frames that can be regarded as sound advice for someone approaching the subject for the first time.

Of course even the list is subjective and there will be many items that make one framers list and not another's, nonetheless there are a few which should be on every framers 'best practice' list.

Here are our Top 5. You may have some others to add, please make comments below.
