It’s All Part Of The Experience
There’s a small but pertinent issue that I’d like to address today.
We’ve had a few people ask about purchasing FASHION+ART prints without our specially selected frame and mat board. And I do understand. Honestly. There’s no one who appreciates preference and personal choice more than me. Don’t I speak on these very things in almost every post? But I’ve been very hesitant to sell the prints unframed. Please let me explain—
Through the years I have gifted and sold many pieces of art. And while there’s no question that the receiver is absolutely thrilled with their gift or purchase, many just never, ever get around to framing it. So there it sits, year after year, either rolled up in a tube for all eternity or leaning unprotected in a corner of an attic or basement. You know what happens next, don’t you? Water, critters, or both go after it, eventually taking their toll. And the art, once so valued, soon becomes nothing more than sheer, unsalvageable garbage. The proud owner? They’re kicking themselves. They’re heartbroken. They’re devastated that they’ve allowed something so precious to come to such a careless and wasteful end.
Trust me. It’s for your convenience (and my peace of mind) that the matting and framing of each print is part of the full FASHION+ART experience. We’re happy to do this for you, kicking the threat of artistic catastrophe to the curb altogether! Wouldn’t you rather open the delivery box, remove the wrapping, and feast your eyes upon your brand new print that’s been framed, matted and completely done, down to the picture wire in back? It’s good to go. Right now! All that’s left for you to do is choosing the perfect spot to display it. Now how does it get any better than that?
I knew you’d understand. We’ll see you in The Gallery—
