In Canada we are familiar with devastating wildfires.
This time our American neighbours in California are going through
the worst and deadliest wildfire season they have ever seen.
Many homes and lives have been lost…
Many people are still unaccounted for…
And the town of Paradise is facing complete destruction.
Through this acknowledgement we hope we can bring attention
(and support) to the plight of many Californians we will never meet and those
we have worked with at California State University Chico and Pepperdine University.
We hope you will consider donating to one of these fire relief funds below
and help those affected by these fires.
Wood Frame Products
All our wood frames sold are guaranteed in writing to be environmentally friendly, to the Qualifor Association standard, where the wood is a farmed product, not from a clear cut rain forest and must have at least 4 trees planted for every one harvested.
Finishes are the finest in the Industry and are lead and toxin free.
Metal Frame Products
All of our metal is extruded and anodized at Canadian plants that are governed by strict municipal and provincial guidelines, to ensure the processing safety of their employees, our customers and the environment.
All of our scrap metal is 100% recycled. None of our painted finishes contain lead or any other toxic materials.
Our Frame Covers
WE DO NOT USE GLASS!
All our frames come with a special lightweight and super thin acrylic (or Plexiglass) facing, superior to standard glass, and is enhanced with a UV coating to help prevent discolouration of inserted artwork, diplomas or certificates from sunlight. There are many advantages to using this product over glass; it is much lighter in weight than glass, which reduces cost in shipping and makes the frame easier to hang. It has a much higher impact/shatter resistance. A better transparency than glass (glass reflects more light than Plexiglass so it causing a great deal of reflection and glare) and it is much safer than glass due to its much lower breakage factor; no sharp broken shards that can cut you or damage your mat board and documents. These advantages have dramatically reduced returns due to damages during delivery.
