Re: Personalised Family Novelty Prints etc etc

Once again, thanks Peter. The website needs some work though, the content is a bit dated & I'm not wholly happy with how we maintain it. It's one of those things I always mean to get sorted but admittedly I never do :roll: We get a little report each month from Google and according to that we do get...

Re: Personalised Family Novelty Prints etc etc

Peter, that's very decent of you to say that. Apart from this forum I don't really have any contact with the 'framing world' so I'm never really too sure what the best direction to go with various ideas. Words of encouragement like yours really means a lot , thank you :)

Hi guys Thanks for the replies, Steve - that site is interesting (I've bookmarked it) but it doesn't apply to what I'm looking for at the moment but thanks anyway.

Re: Personalised Family Novelty Prints etc etc

Selling a framed print for a tenner!? I couldn't be bothered with that! :lol: I'm really talking about the creating the prints. People are buying these (prints only) for £8-10, my daughter works with me now and she'll gladly cut 'n' paste a few images in PS (5 mins top), and print it for a tenner. A...

Personalised Family Novelty Prints etc etc

Hello everyone We're going to be moving premises within the next few weeks and we're looking at ways of bringing in an extra few bucks. I'm sure everyone has seen the cutesy novelty personalised family prints, they seem to be everywhere - eBay, Amazon, Etsy etc and I'm sure it's not the same person ...

Re: New morso blades stiff

Like Mark, I'd say it's the bottom blades that need adjusting if the head won't return up.

Take a look at this video, around the 3min 18 you should see what I'm talking about. :)

Many thanks again, guys. Great tip (as ever) Prospero about the enamelled copper wire. What gauge(s) do you advise I get to kick off - presumably the finest out there for the pen nibs? :clap: Yes - I'm always looking for improving the options when mounting objects - I've taken a look on eBay but th...

Re: Watching TV.

I'm not sure about the spec on your TV but the playback software is probably a little limited. You're best going on Ebay or the like and picking up a little media player for a few pounds and using that instead i.e. put your media on your storage device as per usual, attach that to the media player a...

I've heard of putting little scores in the tape/hinge using a sharp blade also helps with absorbing the water

Re: Stretcher bar sizes?

If you can't find the exact sizes you need there's always the option of losing a little of the image so it'll work with the closest smaller length (if you know what I mean & customer permitting of course). Or get yourself from stretcher bar type moulding and cut it to size - the only thing is there'...

Re: Art Deco picture

Don't let it stress you, Rainbow. Have a few educated stabs at it - which 'll be fun and interesting. But you're a picture framer, not a social historian. Perhaps the customer could print off some things they've seen / are looking for? D Good advice - in years past I've tried to pretend that I knew...

Re: Morso guillotine - cutting poorly all of a sudden

Just out of interest did you try putting a little slip of mountboard between the fence & the back of the moulding. Looking at the photos I'd say your blades needed a sharpen or nudging them forward just a little, also I've had lengths of plain wood cut great at one section and awful at another. Welc...
