 Framed V Unframed ?


Increasingly people are buying paintings unframed because of three factors,

 

1. It substantially reduces the amount they have to pay for the piece

 

2. They get to choose a frame of their liking.

 

3. There are those who like to hang their paintings without a frame.


When you purchase a piece which is unframed and you would like to have it framed eventually, you are far better to take it directly to a framer yourself, firstly because it reduces the cost and secondly it adds to the uniqueness of the of the piece.
