What is Bespoke picture framing?
Bespoke is an old English word, first used in 1583, that describes a conversation between a client and an artisan. That conversation leads to a hand made product that is the desired item for the client. It represents a melding of the minds of the client and the artisan to produce a magical, one of a kind product that reflects the skill of the artisan and the vision of the client.
Most often the word is used to describe a custom made suit, that flatters the figure and design sense of a distinguished discerning buyer. In this century, bespoke has come to be used for hand made products that are made to the specifications requested by a patron.
Bespoke is a very good description of the process involved in creating this special treatment of the artwork. The desires of the client, combined with the vision and suggested procedures of the artisan framer, create a unique presentation never seen in another home or workspace.
Custom picture framing has always been a bespoke process. The client brings a treasure that they want to preserve and enhance. But it needs to fit in their life in a particular way. The mats need to complement the artwork. The frame needs to safeguard the artwork while complementing the design sense of the client and their home or workspace.
Just as with choosing the details of a custom shirt when you can choose your cuff style, your collar design, the pleats and tucks, as well as the fabric, bespoke picture framing allows almost endless choices to make the design completely yours. Hundreds of mat colors and styles from reverse bevels, 8 ply thickness, gold fillets and painted panels are only a few of the custom treatments. Combine that with thousands of frame possibilities and you begin to see the wide array of solutions there are to any design.
Bespoke is the opposite of being limited to what is available in the big box store across town. It is one of life's little pleasures to have a Bespoke picture frame...Like having a custom made suit. Spoil yourself a bit. You won't be sorry.

This kind of framing is indeed not your typical kind of picture framing and I have to say that I find it really interesting. I am planning to renovate our house because fortunately, I was able to have some time and the money that I have saved for it is already enough to start the process. I am thinking of actually doing this Bespoke picture framing instead of the regular one because I would like to make our home one of a kind. I am actually still living with my parents and sisters and I have this feeling that my mom will definitely love this idea. She loves seeing new things and display at the house because she is an adventurous woman. This kins of framing will really amaze her and I can’t wait to show this to her.

Thanks for helping me understand the benefits of bespoke picture framing. I find it amazing to learn that you can use this to customize what kind of frames you'd like on your photo to emphasize it's importance. My friend has a couple of pictures from his grandpa when they captured Berlin back in 1945. I'll share this with him and suggest that he get those custom framed for preservation.

You made a good point when you shared that framing has always been a bespoke process when a customer brings a valuable item that they want to preserve and maintain. My wife just mentioned the other day that she is thinking of framing our wedding photo so we can hang it in our living room as a decoration. I will suggest to her looking for a reliable service that can offer to produce custom picture framing.

Recently a friend of mine opened up a fashion boutique in a mall. He has always been into fashion probably the most fashion intellectual person I know. In the boutique my friend has inventory ranging from shoes, hoodies, jeans, accessories, etc. All the inventory are clothes or shoes that are either hard to find or sold out due to the demand of the product being higher than the supply.
