(Welcome to Susie, who is trying out for a spot on the AT SF editorial team. Enjoy her post!)
What with the bounty of affordable art online, our queue of prints waiting to be framed has gotten rapidly out of hand. Of course, there was a time when framing wasn’t such a big deal—the days of using that weird blue clay to stick posters to the wall don’t seem so far gone. And yet, they are. In a grown-up home, unframed art can look a little naked.
Professional framers are so pricey that DYI framing is often the best solution. We’ve all broken more than a few fingernails wrestling with the fabulous Ikea Ribba frames. Sometimes, though, a special print or photograph warrants special treatment. After all, custom framing is an art in itself. And Dan King, owner of Edgewise Arts in the Mission, is a master.
