Picture Framing

Expert Custom Picture Framing

In addition to being your source for fine art gicleé and photographic prints, Moab Printworks squares the circle by providing expert and creative picture framing. Between them, David L. Brown and Mark Brown have decades of experience in mounting, matting and framing artwork. As photographic artists and owners of a fine art gallery, they are prepared to provide expert counseling on how to make your artworks stand out. Whether contemporary or traditional, we can provide you with the quality, archival framing your pieces deserve.

Besides custom framing using acid-free materials, we can also create unusual effects. For example, “float” mounting on Acrylic sheets and mounting with steel posts can give your wall decor a special “steam punk” look. Or, how about mounting on a copper sheet then floating the print inside a shadow box? We can do that, too, and have a sample to show you. Those are just examples of many creative possibilities.

Of course, while innovative solutions like those are interesting, we have expertise in traditional framing of mounted and matted artwork or photographs with single, double, or even triple mats and a wide range of metal or wood frames. We have a stock of mounting materials and mat board and can access a wide variety of frame styles to match every taste. We have two professional mat cutters, including a top-end 60-inch machine and can make double or triple mats and even create v-grooves for a special effect.

We also have a large dry mounting and laminating press so photos, posters and simple artwork can be mounted to acid-free foamcore or displayed on a substrate such as acrylic or metal. We can also print on canvas or frame objects such as team jerseys, needlepoint works or precious mementos. For fine art pieces such as limited edition prints we will use archival methods, hinge mounting with acid-free linen tape. Oil paintings can be mounted in custom made traditional frames, or float frames for a simple, contemporary look.

And, of course, we are also your source for lovely wall art, custom printed on our eight-color fine art printers. We have hundreds of photographs and digital files made from paintings by our gallery artists. These can be prepared in various sizes to make your empty walls special. Stop by to leaf through our artists’ sample books to pick the perfect subject for your home decor needs. We are conveniently located in the South Town Plaza, on Hwy. 191 in front of Rick’s Glass. We are open six days a week and look forward to serving you.
