Glazing: Not Only Glass in the Frame

Why custom framing smokes ready made frames. Working at a few custom frame shops, I have often heard the gasp statement of “the frame is more than the art”.  As an confessed art addict of works on canvas and various papers from $20-$2,000, I can tell you why I choose custom framing over say a chain store ready made frame.
