Started a range of paintings

After 33 years of framing work, I sort of consider it my lifeline, however I appreciate the government advice on covid 19 and just checking again their pages on the subject, we as framers surely fit into the "non-essential " catego...

Re: Lost property

I'm also just starting out and I can see that it may be awkward to ask for a deposit or full payment beforehand if the client is a friend or a local business owner whom you know and have previously done business with, but otherwise I don't see a problem with asking for it. As long as you ask polite...

Re: Backing Board

We used to see this all the time, sometimes damage was done, others not, surprisingly.
Getting less common now though.
