HOW DID THIS BIG JOB START?

"Hi Neville,
 
I've been in touch with my client about his textile and he likes the idea of a box frame, likely with a black finish.

I've handed on your details to him so it's likely he might give you a call or organise an appointment to drop in and have a look. If he does want to come in, can you let me know and I'll meet with both of you with the textile to discuss the framing and backing colour.
 
Thanks again, Skye"





















NOTE THE INSERTS -  A TOUCH OF COLOUR IN EACH FRAME CORNER

AND THAT IMPORTANT FINAL POLISH BEFORE PLACING THE DUST JACKET ON AT THE BACK OF THE FRAME AND LETTING THE CUSTOMER KNOW OUR WORK IS OVER AND IT'S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO ANOTHER OF OUR FRAMING 'BABIES'
