All our Sabra Field prints on display are custom framed and available for pick up in Stowe or quick ship.
Special Frames at Standard Prices
Our frames are custom made by local framing specialist Lassie Barile.
Framing like this allows your art to look its best now and for years to come.
1. Custom color for each print. Lassie creates a custom blend of natural dyes to make the wood frame a perfect complement to the art inside it. The glass is also special. It is premium 2.5 mm thick which provides better strength and rigidity. It also has none of that ripple effect you often see on glass surfaces.
2. Conservation, "Museum Quality" materials:< /br>
100% Acid and lignin-free mats, mounting boards and back papers are free from the impurities that can damage artwork over time, and 99% UV-filtering glass protects from harmful light exposure. All this insures your Sabra Field print will continue to look great for generations.
