Oh! Sign of the Times…

    As you may have guessed, we’ve got some super talented staff working at our Foursided & Twosided store locations! We couldn’t resist snapping some shots of framer and illustrator extraordinaire Elena working up signage for the 2939 N. Broadway location. This lady has wicked skills!

    Signage_working_webYou’ve got to admire her handiwork with pencils, pens, paint on matboard and all by hand!

    Signage_splice_webHere she puts the finishing touches and painted edges on this stunning sign that reads: “Explore Your Options! Ask us about Custom Framing.”

      Is it Catching? We Hope So…

        Super eye-catching! One of our frequent customers, and apparent germaphile, recently blew in with some very unique embroidery. That’s right I said embroidery, or more accurately cross-stitched bacteria. Adorable? You tell me.

        Bacteria_altered_webHere’s hoping this kind of creative framing is contagious…

        Bacteria_Crossstih_splice_webPictured above the framer measures out space and alignment for each embroidery hoop to gauge the perfect placement. During the consultation, they arranged everything from order of the hoops by color and content, to the best mat color for the piece.
