From matting to framing to glazing our staff is well trained and experienced. We are here to help with any project from the simplest to the most complex. Come in to frame your memories, fine art, family photographs or your favorite team’s jersey. These are the precious objects you want to treasure for years to come. We know how to showcase as well as protect them. Custom matting solutions include unique cut lettering, scrolling, oval or the more traditional and simple. Finishing your project will be in your final choice of glazing. Since you want your work to last and not be hidden behind reflections we offer Tru Vu Museum Glass®. Tru Vu produces virtually invisible glazing that protects your work from the destructive effects of UV light while enhancing the color and contrast of the piece. With so many possible combinations of matting and framing your finished project will certainly be one of a kind.
Pre-Made Frames by ArtCare
We also carry pre-made matted frames by ArtCare. ArtCare produces an acid free archival alternative to the framing kits found in the mega stores. Do not risk your valued works with a frame that is not archival in its production. The colors in your work will fade and yellow with no UV protection and acid mat board. ArtCare frames come in wood or metal and in standard sizes.
Here at Way Up Art & Frame we stock our store with the fine artist in mind. We offer professional art supplies including oil, watercolor, acrylic, encaustic, colored pencil, pen & ink and more. In our store you will also find a wide variety of drawing materials from traditional pen and ink to the more exotic water soluble graphite.
