Computerized Mat Cutter
Artist and gallery owner, Jean McLean is shown by her Computerized Mat Cutter (CMC) where she has created a Maine shaped mat with the words "Maine" cut into it. The CMC with its 4 by 5 foot cutting area has allowed Jean to designed her own unique line of mats that she sells at her gallery. She is willing to custom design one to your specifications for special events such as Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, or whatever you may dream up. Samples of some of the designs can be viewed on this website.
Wide Selection of Frames
Memories of Maine Gallery provides their customers with hundreds of frames to compliment their work. Our framing team will get together and brainstorm ideas to create the best possible framing solution for each image. Our in-house experts can create complete framing packages for our customers.
We strive to earn our customers trust the first time they come to us for framing. Many of our repeat customers come in, drop things off and just say, "do it". They know we will do the best job and at a reasonable price. Memories of Maine Gallery works with the customer no matter how long it takes to select the best way to preserve and accent their work. We only use conservation mats and acid-free foam core backing to be sure all measures of conservation framing are met.
Glass is an important issue that we educate our customers about. Many of our customers do not understand what conservation glass is and the importance of providing UV protection.
