Bledlow Ridge / Chinnor based picture framer, Jules Sainter GCF(APF) has just qualified as a Guild Certified Framer, the professional qualification that distinguishes framers and provides consumers with a recognised way to find excellent craftsmanship and service. Over 1000 framers have achieved this qualification, and Oxon / Bucks residents can take advantage of having this local expertise at Lovingly Framed.
Guild Certified Framers are awarded their qualification by the Fine Art Trade Guild, the international trade association for the industry. Framing skills and knowledge are examined rigorously by an independent Guild appointed tester.
By qualifying as a GCF, Jules has demonstrated that she understands the importance of conservation framing, the use of appropriate materials to avoid future problems and also the range of framing options her customers may require. Unprofessional framing may allow unsightly stains to appear, or gradually cause the artwork to go brown and the paper to weaken; eventually a picture may literally fall apart. These things can be avoided by choosing a qualified professional. Knowledge and technology are improving all the time and precious and valuable pieces should be checked by a professional framer who can take remedial action to protect works to be kept for future enjoyment. Jules Sainter GCF(APF) has proved herself able to advise on the framing of unusual objects and memorabilia.
