It's a pretty impressive 36,000sf place, and is one of the largest solar powered operations in New England.

The G would like to welcome our newest sponsor, and congratulate Jim Miller on the release of his newest book.

You can learn more and pick up a copy for yourself at
THIS LINK


DCO_Book_728x90.png

Gain new expertise in picture framing designs and mounting options with the three categories of Direct Contact Overlays described in this book. More than 165 photographs and detailed illustrations provide clear and concise instructions for creation of these innovative, preservation-quality mounts using clear polyester film, fine-mesh fabrics, and acrylic glazing.

All of these float mounting techniques use transparent or nearly-transparent materials to cover, support, and securely attach items within a frame. These non-adhesive techniques are minimally invasive, reversible, low-risk, uncomplicated, and cost effective. They are also framer-friendly, requiring only ordinary framing tools and shop equipment.

DCO mounting may be especially useful in framing a deteriorated, fragile, antique paper or textile, which may be unable to support its own weight or withstand the stresses imposed by traditional mounting methods. DCO mounting is also useful for some three-dimensional objects, such as books, magazines, newspapers, golf balls, and tennis balls.

I just browsed the CRAFT INC. website.
They have got some really interesting bits of hardware I haven't seen anywhere else.
Definitely worth a look.

I sell a lot of custom Easel Backs in my Etsy shop using the Craft Inc products and recommend them. A little bit of an investment($135)for the back mate plus some initial supplies but well worth it if you want to offer Easels. Rather than the one size fits none, make easels that fit the frame. The image below is from my Etsy shop where I show a frame with a 2 1/4" moulding with an easel made for the frame vs a stock easel with a zero leg extension.

The last time I said something nice about them here on theG, they sent me some free-bees (shameless hint hint) :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup::thumbsup:
