Oh no… the streak is over!

Streak is over! It was good while it lasted. Our first 6 years in business had been #flawless with all #5star #reviews across #Google, #Facebook, #Yelp, #YellowPages, and #Groupon, until this order.

#Complimentary #USMarine logo added to the top, #3-D float mounted and was completed within #2weeks of placing the initial order. We were given 3 stars. 😦

We still know we are the #best #custom #picture #framing #company.

#Astros Will Get Them Next Time

This year, it seemed very obvious that the #Boston #Redsox had the #Houston #Astros number in the ALCS. Every time #Houston would make a #comeback and start getting into the game the #Redsox would do something to quiet the crowd.

Even though we didn’t get the chance to do another #Worldseries #Championship #masterpiece, we thoroughly enjoy making the #best #custom #framing #imaginable.

Even with all of the construction

We are still cranking out the highest quality artwork, even with everything under construction.

Picture Worth Custom Framing moved from a much smaller location to a much bigger and more accommodating workspace.  Yes, we have had delays, due to build out, but we still keep churning out our high quality custom framing.

Once our new space is complete, it will completely transform our company’s capabilities for the better.  Picture Worth Custom Framing will be a lot more versatile, efficient, and faster.

Stay tuned for the grand opening of the new and improved Picture Worth Custom Framing art company.

Discussion

Mat burn creates a darkening edging around where the window of the mat was, but can also darken any area in contact with an acidic mat. Poor quality mats are created from paper with heavy wood pulp content, which is chemically unstable and acidic. As the mat ages, the wood pulp decomposes, releasing acid which migrates to absorbent paper below. Displaying and storing works in archival quality mats containing no wood pulp can mitigate this kind of damage.
