Installation

Experienced in both picture framing and installation, our art handlers understand how to best transport and install framed artwork.  We can hang a single picture or an entire collection.

We offer pick up, delivery and  installation services in San Francisco and throughout the entire Bay Area as well as Monterey County.

We are available on Saturdays and evenings to accommodate your schedule.  Email us for a quote or to book an appointment.

Packing and Shipping

We provide packing and shipping throughout the US and internationally for art or framing purchased from us. For packing and shipping only, we recommend Ship Art

Proper packing will insure your artwork arrives safely. For delicate or high-value pictures, we use wood crates or Airfloat ‘strong boxes’

For storing framed and unframed art and memorabilia, we recommend using archival materials available from Talas Conservation Supplies and University Products

Conservation Treatment

A work of art, piece of memorabilia or historical document can be dramatically improved with proper treatment prior to framing.

We work directly with professional conservators to assess and treat works on paper and paintings.

For textile cleaning and restoration, we recommend Talisman Restoration and for photography conservation Gawain Weaver.

Appraisals

A professional appraiser can document your collection for insurance purposes and/or determine its market value if you are considering selling it.

An appraisal will provide you with in-depth knowledge about the works in your collection regardless of its size or value. Most appraisals can be done remotely.
