Martin's Framing

Framing project saves family’s valuables after unfortunate incident

Donna and Joe Rudnick faced a disaster last year: a water pipe burst right above a collection of artwork, family photos, and other collectibles.

Even worse was the fact the couple had just moved into a new location after selling what they had thought was their “forever home,” and everything was being stored together in the basement.

Some items were damaged beyond repair. But the couple tried to save as many pieces as possible by phoning framing companies to see if anyone would take the job.

Several didn’t respond, and others were intimidated by the scope of the project. But Tracy Kilgour and the Martin’s Framing team were up to the challenge. The Rudnicks had around 60 items of various sizes and values needing to be restored and re-framed.

“They took all our pieces, assessed the damage, provided a quote for the entire job and used their expertise to choose the best mattes and frames,” says Donna. “I can honestly say that each piece looks perfect now.  We look at them and admire the beauty.  The workmanship and quality of product is exceptional.”

While the craftsmanship certainly stands out, the Rudnicks were also impressed by the overall service they received.

“They were kind and patient with us, professional, experts in their field,” says Donna. “What a wonderful experience we had.”

Frame it all
Though that was a big task with a variety of items, it’s not the only specialty framing project Martin’s Framing has been working on.

Other recent projects include a Spiderman mosaic, historic clothing items like kilts, and more. Framing helps protect the items from dust, sun, and other damage.

One client brought his parents’ kimonos, purchased in Japan in 1970, to be framed. “The kimonos had been in a box since 1970 and they wanted to do something special with them,” says Tracy.

Old fishing rods, oars, tennis rackets and more can be framed and turned into decorative accents. Family heirlooms can be displayed: one recent project included photos of the patriarch and matriarch of a family, complete with certificates and medals they earned during WWII.

“We love helping people share and celebrate their stories,” says Tracy.
