Re: Tuition Wanted (needed!)

If at all possible, get the trainer to come to you and teach you on your equipment

Re: Urgent Experienced Picture Framer Required - Purley

Whenever I see a post like this, I wonder have you asked any of the distributor reps who visit you :?:
They may probably know an employee at another frame shop who is looking to move on :idea:

Re: Anyone received any Arqadia invoices yet?

Re: Scrap mount board.

Awesome - you should send this pic to Art + Framing Today. I'm sure they would print it!

And also add it to the discussion on https://www.facebook.com/groups/393302711109534/

The FRAMERS ONLY Face Book site where there was a long discussion about what to do with waste fall outs.
