At BlackBird Frame & Art, we aim to provide the appropriate level of care for your art or object. This means using preservation techniques and materials to the extent warranted by the project, based on the value and condition of the art or object as well as the client’s needs and concerns for preservation. Expense is certainly an issue that may affect a client’s decisions, but we make every attempt to provide impartial advice on this matter. Certainly, there could be instances where we would decline to frame an item in a manner inappropriate to its current or potential value — monetary or otherwise. However, it is our experience that clients, with almost no exception, share our concern for preservation and seek to take the necessary steps.
Obviously the degree of attention to preservation varies considerably, as some items have no value and are meant only for temporary use and display (government-mandated postings in a business, for example). The need for maximum care is self-evident in the case of art that has significant monetary value, or objects of great sentiment. Between these extremes lie some gray areas. Items of limited or uncertain value pose issues that both the framer and our client must address. Some examples:
In short, the methods and materials used to frame each item are dictated by a variety of factors, including not only the nature of the object being framed, but also the client’s needs and preferences.
