Fabulous Spoleto Poster by Robert Motherwell!

Fabulous Spoleto Poster by Robert Motherwell!

This poster from 1968 Spoleto Italy is by acclaimed American artist Robert Motherwell. It is open edition and has slight discoloration damage to the bottom 1/5 or so, as the result of being stored in a cardboard tube for some 40+ years. It is large, the frame measures about 30″ wide x 44″ high. We matted it in a neutral acid-free cotton mat and used a contemporary black moulding. Fabulous!

Collage of Greeting Cards!

Collage of Greeting Cards!

We recently had a customer come in looking for Columbia SC picture frames for their assortment of greeting cards. We came up with this idea, using a double Avocado Green Mat and a hand finished cocoa brown moulding. We cut windows for each greeting card and then another mat around all of them. Each greeting card is about 5″ x 7″, the overall size is about 24″ x 30″. Nice and clean!

Framed Clemson Print!

Framed Clemson Print!

Even in Columbia SC frames are called for the occasional Clemson piece, here we have Clemson legends Jeff Davis, C.J. Spiller and Danny Ford with, um… apparently with the paper boy. We recently framed this print for a client, we used a warm white with orange mat and a 2 1/2″ contemporary black moulding. We offset the collectible poker chip in it’s own opening.

Framed Pastel Portrait!

Framed Pastel Portrait!

Pastels are always a bit more difficult to frame as the pigments tend to flake easily and can collect on the mat bevels. We safeguard against this happening by ever so slightly raising the mats of the art as to give the flakes a place to fall behind the mats. On this one we used a stark white mat and gold filet with a traditional gold frame. This piece measures about 20″ x 24″. Very nice! For Columbia picture frames you can count on Elite Framing!

Rustic Framed Jim Harrison Print!

Rustic Framed Jim Harrison Print!

We’ve always liked ol’ Jim Harrison,not only for his talent but also because he is “good people”. We recently framed this small print for a customer using a grey linen mat and a rustic barnwood frame. The entire piece measure about 18″ x 14″. Oh, and all components are Made in the USA! When you are looking for Columbia SC frames you can find them at Elite Framing!

Framed Newspaper Article!

Framed Newspaper Article!

Recently we had the task of framing this newspaper article. The tough part was that it was two separate articles! We were able to paste it together so it appears as one page. We used black mats with a blue inner mat and a walnut stained rustic wood moulding. The moulding is made right here in Columbia SC picture frames! Made in the USA!! (Now I’m all hungry!)

Framed Cross-stitch

Framed Cross-stitch

Here is a neat little piece of needle work art, we framed it in a nice hand-finished olive veneer moulding (made in Italy!) The entire thing only measures about 16″ x 10″. Note the fantastic texture in the frame!

Contemporary Framed Mirror!

Contemporary Framed Mirror!

At Elite Framing in Columbia SC’s Five Points Shopping District we do a fair number of custom mirrors. This is a recent one that we did to a client’s exact specs. We used a contemporary silver moulding, the overall size is about 26″ x 36″. Extra Cool! And would you look at all of the different sizes and colors this frame is available!

Wonderful Watercolour by Griff!

Wonderful Watercolour by Griff!

At Elite Framing (in Columbia’s 5 Points shopping district) we recently reframed this watercolour by Lexington artist George Griffith. (We won’t show you the original mats and frames, but… dated!) We chose a neutral warm grey linen top mat and a darker grey linen bottom mat. We then picked a 2 1/2″ greyish burl frame (Made in Italy!) to complete the piece. The overall size is about 36″ x 28″. Outstanding! And would you look at the other colors and sizes that are available for this moulding!
