Hello fellow black sheep,

I have acquired an old map and wish to have it framed properly. Has anyone done something similiar here or have recommendations for professional framers.

Thanks in advance

Not cheap but absolutely top shelf work. A map shouldn't be too expensive. There is no matte to be cut. The deal breaker is always when you prefer non-reflective glass, which is far more expensive than normal glass.

...but if you really want to be able to see the map and not a reflection of yourself, you may consider it worth it in the long run. We had an old picture of Mr L's family and a photo taken by a deceased brother of mine framed and in spite of the 'costing and arm and a leg' experience, it was well worth the extra. Living on bread and water for a month covered it easily.

Looking for places to frame the paintings

Happy new year all.
Does anyone know a good place (quality + price) to frame the paintings? I've got some nice painting but don't know where to frame them, so I can hang them up.

Many thanks!
Jenni

Re: Picture Frame stores, Zurich

There is a nice little shop in Niederdorf. I don't know the name it's next to the Theater Neumartk and vis-a-vis Restaurant Neumarkt. If you follow the road "up" from Starbucks in Niederdorf and pass by the Oliver Twist Pub and the Travel Book Shop you will get there directly.

Hope that helps!

Re: Picture Frame stores, Zurich

I recently had a very bad experience with Atelier Hohl - http://www.atelierhohl.ch/ - in Oerlikon.

I handed in an original charcoal drawing to have framed. When I visited to clarify some details, I found that they'd placed my artwork in a plastic folder along with a business card and paper clip on the surface of the actual drawing. Of course, the top surface of charcoal was irretrievably lost, having been wiped away by their mishandling. Very unprofessional.

No apology or offer of compensation.

To illustrate, here's a before and after of his handiwork.

I am very sorry to hear that, I will avoid this place. Thank you for sharing.

Just got my map back from Vergölderei.

(a) Rheinfelden is a very nice little place for a vistit
(b) More importantly - the result is excellent - extremely happy.
(c) It was soooo expensive. The frame measure 110cm x 46cm, has this fancy non-reflective glass and cost less than 400CHF.

Would thoroughly recommend this lady.

That's incredible, cas, sorry to hear that. Is there anyway you could at least write them a letter? So they do not do it to others? Sounds like an untrained apprenti kind of mess up.

Growing up in an art family though, and doing a bit of charcoal myself, you know you have to set the charcoal, right? We have always done it with a simple, cheapest (meaning straight lacquer, no hair conditioning chemicals in it that leave blotches, etc.) hair spray. Works like a champ. I remember mom using this



and a bottle of some cheapo art supply thingie.

(Are you the talent who did bartolomew's avatar, by the way? Awesome. Your paintings are all fab. piękne).

Re: Picture Frame stores, Zurich

Thanks for the feedback MusicChick.

Yep, I painted bartolomew's avatar. Thanks for the compliments.

Regarding Atelier Hohl, it was actually Mr. Hohl himself who spoiled my work. I had applied some professional quality fixative before taking it to him. The main problem is that he stored it in a plastic sleeve - the type you'd use to hold A4 documents - which has a static charge that causes the charcoal to lift. Charcoal or pastels will lift away even if there is some distance placed between the plastic and the artworks surface.

Marcel Hohl additionally placed a business card and paperclip on top of my work to make things even worse.

Even the passepartout wasn't fitted to what I'd asked for. I think he just took an approximate size to save him the work of cutting a custom shape.

I wrote to them but only got an insincere apology along the lines of, "if you think we've done something wrong then we apologise."

It was the first time I've ever had anything framed, so it's a good learning experience. But next time I'll go somewhere which specialises in handling fine art.

Thanks again for the feedback, though!
Chris

Re: Picture Frame stores, Zurich

Has anyone ever considered doing their framing across the border? For a couple of pieces, it wouldn't hurt (financially) too much to do it here. But I'm in a massive declutter and to do list mode, and have a few years worth of family photos and posters and the like that I'm finally going to frame and get up on our walls!

Re: Picture Frame stores, Zurich

Old thread I know... but does anyone know a place in Zurich that will take a canvas painting, and stretch-mount it onto a wooden frame for a reasonable price?

I will check my local Jumbo for sure, but wondering if anything much has changed with the suggestions above over the last few years.

Re: Picture Frame stores, Zurich

Does anyone know of a reasonably priced one near Basel. Germany or France would be fine if you know of an actual place.

Cheers

As already mentioned, Jumbo has framing services and are reasonably priced.
