Re: Re Picture frame Visualisation software – recommendations

You might find it better to first try an App called 'Frame Builder' by Clairanne Filaudeau. It runs on an ipad and iphone. It comes with a basic price but there are additional costs for extra features. You will not break the bank if you purchase all. I've used it for a number of years and the suppor...

Re: Storing a Ultimat

I use a custom flight case to store my mountcutter when it is not on the bench. Keeps it protected. But you still need the space to store the case. The case I have has wheels on one end to make it more moveable.

Re: Security Camera System

HikVision are considered to be amongst the best. We've had ours for about 3 years in the house.

Re: Specification of mountboard changed?

At a roadshow earlier this year I was talking to the Crescent representative and he said that they have a huge warehouse out in the 'mid-west' where they store supplies of all discontinued mountboards for 5 years. He said this was for litigation reasons as it is cheaper than fighting in court agains...

Re: Customer work not picked up

Prospero, Does the family know that you have the artwork? If it is not worth a lot it may be valuable in other ways to heirs. If valuable the executors of the estate would need to know.

Re: Moving the group to a social media site?

If you move to something like FB it will need to be decided whether it is an open or closed group. An open group widens the possible interested audience but also exposes the audience to what I would call the 'disruptive brigade', who have no interest whatsoever in the subject etc. A closed group wou...

Re: epson claria photo HD ink

Sounds like you may benefit from going on a printing course such as the ones run by the Imaging Warehouse. Their courses are based around Permajet products (and Epson).The cost of the course could be recouped by choosing the right paper etc.

Re: Looking for hand finishing tips

You don't indicate the size of frame or budget. A possible alternative may be to use real walnut wood and get the moulding routered to the required profiling. Real walnut would be expensive but you have to weigh that up against the time experimenting and completing the painting/staining/finishing et...

Re: Hanging systems

The hanging nylon or metal wire systems are much more flexible.

One consideration you may wish to think about is security. If it is easy for you to put up and take down the pictures it will also be easy for the light fingered brigade.
