All About My Frames for Art Commissions

artworks, pet art, shopping, faqsCharlotte Brown

I wanted to share with you a bit about the beautiful frames that I have selected to go with my art commissions for custom pet portraits so that they arrive with you ready to hang.

They are specially chosen to complement my art and also to look stylish in your home.

For all my art commissions, including pet portraits, I offer an elegantly simple black frame in a curved 'swoop' design.

The frame is a high-quality solid wood frame built by hand in the UK by my trusted framing partners who are members of the Fine Art Trade Guild.

The frames feature a 2mm-thick conservation-grade single mount, which will not discolour over time, and clear acrylic plexiglass that provides UV protection for your artwork and reduced glare.

Without a Frame?

If you already have a favourite frame at home, or if you'd just rather get your local store to do the framing for you, that's perfectly fine.

If you're ordering an art commission with me, just tell me that you'd prefer to source the frame yourself and I can quote you accordingly.

A Different Frame?

You could also select a different frame type or even a canvas or metal, acrylic, or wood print from my store to go with your commission. Please, ask me to include your selection in your quote if you prefer this option.

How do I care for my artwork and frames?

Avoid hanging your artwork in direct sunlight, close to a fireplace or radiator, or in a moist environment such as a bathroom.

Simply wipe frames gently with a soft cloth or feather duster. Avoid using cleaning sprays on the frames.

To clean the acrylic glazing in your frame, dampen a soft cloth with water and wipe gently. Do not spray household cleaners onto the glazing.

Will my Artwork be Sent Safely?

Yes!

Framed art is sent in a tough cardboard box that will protect the frame on its way to you.

Acrylic glazing, instead of glass, helps to ensure that there are no breakages in transit.

Unmounted prints (loose prints) are usually sent rolled in a cardboard tube.

In the unlikely event that there is any damage when your artwork arrives, please get in touch with me as soon as possible.
