• ONSITE EVALUATION
We are more than happy to have one of our experienced Soho Picture Framing staff come by a corporate office or living space in the immediate Soho area to discuss custom framing options before any artwork is brought over to our frame shop.
• PICKUP & DELIVERY
We pick up and deliver small to medium sized artwork within a three block radius of Soho Picture Framing at no charge. Our staff is very well trained in proper art handling techniques - all artwork is safe in our capable hands! For larger fine art pieces, multi-orders, or locations outside the immediate three block radius, we can recommend messenger or art handling services that clients can use to schedule artwork pickup and deliveries to and from Soho Picture Framing. While we have limited staff availability, in certain circumstances we can make artwork pickup and deliveries ourselves for an additional charge based on distance, quantity, size of the artwork, and turnaround time.
• RUSH JOBS
Same day, overnight, and two day rush custom framing services are available. Additional rush charges apply based on staff availability, turnaround time, and number of other projects being worked on at the same time.
• LARGE, COMPLEX
Soho Picture Framing has a lot of experience working with oversized fine art as well as successfully taking on complex, large scale projects consisting of ten or more artworks of various sizes. Most other custom frame shops aren’t equipped to handle this. However we can do it! Our building has a good sized freight elevator so moving artwork in and out of the shop is usually not an issue.
• WORLDWIDE CLIENT
We have experience working with artists, art galleries, and companies from other states, provinces, and countries throughout the world who have clients in New York City and trust us to handle custom framing. Artwork can be sent to our shop from all over the world and we will coordinate the entire custom framing process from start to finish. If needed, we can also take care of delivery and installation as well. Our goal is to take the hassle out of the entire process!
• ARTISTIC VISION
At Soho Picture Framing, we advise and guide our clients on the most appropriate custom framing design choices that work best for both individual preference and for the artwork - and still be within the predetermined framing budget.
• MUSEUM QUALITY
The framers at Soho Picture Framing are well versed in the most up to date conservation framing techniques and can provide fully reversible custom framing solutions. In addition to archival mats and glass, we only use acid-free backing and mounting to ensure the full conservation and protection of client’s artwork.
If necessary, the framers custom build wood strainers for additional frame support for larger artworks.
If there is even the slightest chance that the artwork being framed might touch the glass or plexiglass surface due to a mat not being used, we always recommend using custom built separation spacers made from mat board, wood, foam core, or plastic. This prevents long term damage from humidity or temperature changes, especially for more valuable or precious artworks.
• CUSTOM PICTURE
At Soho Picture Framing, our highly experienced and dedicated custom picture framers work with clients in selecting the perfect frame to enhance and protect their artwork. Thousands of wood and metal frames are available in all shapes and sizes to accommodate every client’s custom framing vision and budget, no matter how basic or complicated. Many types of wood are available such as: cherry, maple, ash, walnut, mahogany, and oak with options for natural, stained, and painted finishes. Soho Picture Framing also carries a wide variety of finished corner splined wood frames as well as handmade, hand finished museum quality custom frames layered with thin sheets of 24 karat gold, white gold, and metal leaf. Metal frames in every color imaginable are available, including a very unique line of welded steel frames that are a great conversation piece.
• SPECIALTY CUSTOM
The professional framers at Soho Picture Framing have experience working with specialty frames such as plexiglass acrylic box frames, frameless plexiglass acrylic standoffs, shadowbox frames, and floater frames.
• MUSEUM GRADE
Museum quality archival mats are available in a wide range of thicknesses, colors, and hand-wrapped fabrics. We have the necessary skills and equipment for cutting basic single and multi opening mats as well as more complicated specialty mats such as circle, oval, heart shaped or uneven multi corner ones of different shapes and sizes.
• GLASS & ACRYLIC
Soho Picture Framing offers many types of glass and acrylic plexiglass to protect artwork from getting damaged by dust, dirt, improper handling, insects, and ultraviolet sunlight. We carry a full range of regular, UV, OP-3, anti-reflective, and museum glass and Optium acrylic plexiglass. We can also replace damaged glass or plexiglass for existing custom frames.
Our custom framing staff has experience stretching almost any size canvas onto either traditional wood stretcher bars or incredibly sturdy aluminum/wood combinations. Custom canvas stretching options such as gallery wraps are also available.
• FRAMED ARTWORK
The custom framers can re-hinge fallen prints within existing frames, de-fit previously framed artwork, and professionally prepare fine art for storage, moving, local or overseas shipping, and/or travel.
• CUSTOM FRAME
If an existing custom frame is in need of cosmetic restoration, we will do our best to make it look as close to new as is realistically possible. If it is an antique or gold leaf custom frame that is in need of more extensive restoration, we refer our clients to very experienced frame restorers who specialize in this type of work.
In general, if a client’s artwork needs more extensive restoration or conservation, we refer them to very experienced restorers and conservators. Once restoration has been completed and the client brings the artwork back to us, we can start the custom framing process.
We work with knowledgeable and trustworthy outside vendors for printing, dry mounting, and metal plaque engraving services.
Once an artwork is custom framed and is ready to be professionally installed, we work with experienced picture hangers and mirror installers who can assist with placement and installation of any number of artworks in a home, corporate office, or gallery space.
