Goodbye 2020 – Walk and Don’t Look Back

Cai Gua Chiang artwork framed by Baobab Frames Art Service with a 5 section SmallCorp frame

Frame won’t fit through the door? We make them in multiple parts. The picture frame above was made in 5 sections to house a painting by Cai Guo-Qiang, framed in New York by Baobab Frames and Art Services with Luxar glass from McGrory Glass. It’s about to go on exhibit at the Palace Museum in Beijing

 

 

Thank you

Thank you all for bearing with us during this crazy year.  As you may know, we are rotating staff in and out to minimize the number of people in the office at any one time.  (In the shop, there’s plenty of room to move around and stay separated).  Typically there’s only one or two of us per department on site at any one time, while others work from home. Thank you for working with us, giving us a little extra time to call back, and  talking with folks that you don’t usually talk to.  We appreciate it. Here’s to a healthy 2021!

Holiday Plans?

In spite of (or maybe because of) all the craziness, this year flew right by.  It’s holiday time again.  SmallCorp will be closed on December 24th and 25th, and re-opening on December 28th.  We’ll  be closed on January 1st, and we’ll be back on January 4th.

How about you?  If you have an order that is due to ship around the end of the year, and if you might be closed some of that time, please let us know.  We can hold orders here, or maybe ship them early, so please let us know your closing schedules and any accommodations you would like us to make.
 
And for those dining alone this year…

Giant Paper

New paper
Our 40pt conservation board, used  for paper faced panels and other things, has been discontinued. We have replaced it with a very nice 20pt acid free rag board – Archival White Cotton Mount. As before, it is 90″ wide. All our paper-face mounting panels will be made with the new paper going forward.
 
Rolls of big paper for sale
If you need some of that very large paper, let us know.  We can offer a 60ft roll for $660, plus a $75 packing charge, and freight to get it to you.

Everything’s gotten bigger in the last thirty years. Here’s Van Wood in 1989 with 60″ x 104″ matboard, the largest we could get at that time (The photo is in a SmallCorp recessed acrylic box frame)

 
 
Big sheets of 3/8″ UV too
We just brought in 14 sheets of 3/8″ UV filtering acrylic 79″ x 120″. Get it while it lasts!
