Creative Mat Cuts



Computerized Mat Cutting

Our computerized mat cutter allows us to create almost any shape…going far beyond the rectangle! Choose from V-groove cut-outs, letters, shapes, and other creative embellishments for a truly personal design.

Customized Name Mats: Create a truly singular gift with acid-free letter name mats. Choose your text and graphics and the shapes are filled with your personal photographs of an event, theme or subject. Most popular: “I (heart) Grandma”, “Love”, “Teacher”, team names, and vacation spots.

Window Shape Templates, Cut Art Shapes and V-Grooves: Framing Arts can offer over one hundred different Template Designs–perfect for signature mats, wedding and other event and theme photos. V-groove (a border line or decorative shape etched into the mat) and cut art shapes can be added to make a genuinely one-of-a-kind mat.

Signature Mats: Frame a photo of a special event with an archival mat signed by all the family, friends, and guests in attendance. Signature matted photographs are a unique and personal keepsake for weddings, birthdays, retirement parties—the list is endless.

Computerized Visualization Service

Our Computerized Visualization Service allows our customers to instantly view and compare multiple design options. It’s a fast and easy way to make the absolute right choice. A camera mounted above our design table takes a digital photo of your art, mouldings, and mats. With a click of the mouse you can view and compare your different designs on our computer screen. You can even see your wall color behind it!

Refitting with Conservation Materials

We specialize and highly encourage the archival refitting of framed art if the original fitting used non acid-free materials.  All materials that have already or could cause deterioration are replaced with archival museum quality materials.  UV (ultraviolet) protective glass can be added to further preserve and protect your art.

Design a custom mirror to match your personal décor. Choose from over 500 frame mouldings, combined with a beveled or flat mirror.

Frame Repair

We can repair frames whose corners have pulled apart by time or mishap and replace broken glass.
