Re: Wavey Canvass

Back in the 80’s you could still get the same price as being. Stretched when they where in fashion.
The pictures sold themselves and looked great in swept frames or 3” gold frames with linen slips, easy money.
Not so easy today as the internet net has killed it off.

Re: Wavey Canvass

I agree better on stretchers which I did as well for an upgraded jobs, but I was doing hundreds and could still get a good price. As decorative art.

Then cover with silicone paper or a glossy release film, then foam, place in a hot press on a low temp and the heat rea...

Re: Cassese 88 adjustment

Glad you got it sorted,
It a common problem on the old CS 88 but nothing that can’t be resolved on a normal service.
If you need replacement parts we still stock them and if your happy to replace them yourself we can supply them or do it for you on a service.
Kind regards

Re: Mount Recommendations – Student Artists Prints, Drawing paper / Giclee Ink

Justine, You should find with practice the hedgehog method very useful and easy to do. As Prospero pointed out The trick is to make the top hinges 'hard' (Stuck to the Bevel) as the main support and add as many 'loose' hinges to the sides and bottom so as to hold the paper down but allow a small amo...

Re: Mount Recommendations – Student Artists Prints, Drawing paper / Giclee Ink

I agree with Justin on float mounting them, also considered the the Hedgehog method of mounting which may hold them flatter and hold that weight easier.

Post a finished image

Good luck

Re: Advice needed on sports shirt framing please.

You can get engraved plaques made by trophy shops they charge by per letter. Find a good local shop, ask them for 4 designs you can display. Then you can add a bit on and charge the customer. But the Snag is, you must get the customer to write down the wording and check it with them, dates, names, s...

Re: Advice needed on sports shirt framing please.

"Keep It Reversible" Don't devalue sport shirts or artworks by using double sided tapes as in the above video. Framing sports shirts can be done with fully reversible methods with out the need for double sided tape. Practice makes perfect and you price accordingly, give your customer options. I hav...

Re: Cassese on1e wedges firing into deep

Looks like plastic moulding you are using? Wood is best.
Check to see if you are using hardwood wedges instead of normal?
Hardwood wedges may have a black dot on top of the cartridge or a white sticker saying hardwood.
Newer hardwood wedges have a yellow insert underneath.
