Most collectable Asian art are painted on rice paper. The rice paper becomes naturally wrinkled after the artist has created the work, so wet paste mounting is required to restore the artist’s original vision and spirit. Wet paste mounting with silk border and scroll mounting are traditional techniques that are very difficult and painstaking to do, so most framing shops simply do not offer this option. Many of these shops will suggest dry mounting the rice paper or other nontraditional technique, but you should beware that this will probably permanently damage your valuable work of art.

Excellent service. They helped me out to navigate to each and every detail of selecting a frame. They have pretty wide range of selection too.

It was our wedding picture and so we wanted to make sure it is perfect. Their suggestions about frame & glass are very accurate. Male owner knows what is best suitable for our eyes in various situations where you would install your frame. Based on your wall/furniture artifacts he can provide you best matching frame. When we gave all the artifacts about our room and furniture setup, we did not expect that his recommendation would be that true. But when we brought the framed picture home, it did light up our wall.

Price was also very matching. They are not pushy and they can offer you frame for every kind of budget. I have dealt with Michael and other framing big names. But this one works out best if you have specific requirements about your frame and need a custom opinion.

I had a very positive experience with this shop and highly recommend them.

1. Considerate people.  The framer sat me down and spent a good while walking me through all my framing considerations and related costs.  I did not feel any pressure to make decisions one way or another.  I had a wonderful tour of the store as well.

2. Timing.  My frames were ready ahead of schedule.  Fantastic.

3. The final product looks beautiful -to me at least b/c I made it.  I had a wrinkled poster that they were able to flatten and make presentable again.
