SOMETHING UNIQUE started out as a hobby back in the 70’s when the owner, Bob Rogers was framing his own calligraphic works. One of his night school instructors gave the class the name and location of an Amish picture frame manufacturer who produced very good hardwood frames at competitive prices. The business evolved from there with friends, family and neighbors requesting custom framing for their photos and art.
The majority of the work done in the shop features conservation mounting and matting with acid free museum grade mats and mounting board used on all of the pieces he works on. All types of glass are available from “premium clear” to “museum” grade with reflection control and UV control included. With the recently acquired Fletcher 1100 circle/oval cutter now in the shop he can produce mats from a 1″ circular opening to a 32 X 40 mat cut to fit the art. Larger mats up to 40 X 60 can also be cut on a custom made mat cutting system developed by Bob’s sister, Marilynn Weaver. Frames up to 4′ by 8′ can be assembled in the shop as well. A Phadera Chronomat miter saw and a Thumbnail Master joiner handle the cutting and joining of the custom frames.
In addition the gallery carries an environmental friendly greeting card line and locally made gift items. Gift certificates for custom framing are available and make a unique and appreciated gift. SOMETHING UNIQUE can be contacted through this website or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
