“Just finished hanging the Cashew print you framed for me and wanted to let you know how perfect it turned out! The choice of a lighter frame was just right and as well as your suggestion to use a thinner 1/8″ under-mat for this piece. I very much appreciate not only your recommendations but your creative expertise and framing skills. Thank you for doing a beautiful job once again”. – Jeanette J.
