Hate shopping and wondering about frames? How about having a mobile showroom come to your home?
Kari Schmidt-Pukropski: "Having a mobile showroom is very convenient for my clients. It all starts with either a phone call, or with someone I meet on the street, so to speak. I have no set work hours. I work around the schedule of others. An appointment is made. I arrive with my trailer, filled with 100's of frame corner and matting samples. I open up the back ramp door. I then will greet the client and discuss what design layout they want for their artwork. We then walk out to the trailer, together. I give them a bag and ask them to grab whatever samples that speak to them. I have a bag as well.
Once the bags are full we go back inside and start the design process. I go over all the options of the framing, such as the glass, backing, mounting, etc. Once we come up with a plan I write up the order, pack up the art, and away I go. Artwork is delivered back within one day to two weeks, depending on the supplies on hand. Another added thing is that I don't require a deposit. Payment is due upon delivery.
