Become a better person by experiencing your adventure again and again and again!

by High Desert Frameworks!

“People tend to be more inspired to comment on their feelings of gratitude when they reflect on the trips they took, the venues they visited, or the meals they ate than when they reflect on the gadgets, furniture, or clothes they bought.”**

Spending Money on Experiences Makes You a Better Person 

A new study shows that people not only express more gratitude about events and experiences than they do about objects; it also found that this kind of gratitude results in more generous behavior toward others.**

We all recognize the value of time away from work.  Taking that special vacation is often ingrained in our memories for a lifetime.  Can you think back to the time you went to Disneyland, went on a cruise or snorkeled in the Caribbean for the very first time.  Maybe it was the trip to Nebraska to visit the cousins over Christmas break.  Regardless of the venue, the cotton candy you ate or the saltwater you inhaled,  the experience is deeply embedded into our memories and in some part make who we are today.

According to a recent article written by Amanda Macmillan for RealSimple, there are studies that reflect how your experiences, such as, trips you took, the venues you visited, or the meals you enjoyed, make you a better person and for that matter maybe a more charitable person.

This might be a stretch but play along with us ....

If those positive experience make you as the studies indicate, a better person, what could go wrong?  Why not capture your experience, print it and be reminded of that wonderful day or event every day?

HDFW-SnipPost-DigitalPrinting-1200x667-WEB.jpg

Maybe it's a stretch but one thing is for sure:  Custom Framing your vacation photo can never be considered "gadgets, furniture, or clothes."   Let High Desert Frameworks Print and Frame your life experiences!

Isn't it time for you to relive your most recent experiences and adventures again and again and again?

A bathroom remodel worthy to be featured in Houzz! Custom Mirrors from High Desert Frameworks!

Our Custom Mirror Solution!

When Karen and her husband came into High Desert Frameworks, they had in mind a certain look for their newly remodeled bathroom. After a brief discussion and taking a peek at the photos of the cabinets, fixtures and flooring - we went to town! Right away, my thought went to the new Cumberland hardwood cherry moulding, stained a beautiful tone of grey - perfect. Then we looked for a frame for the second mirror. We wanted something that leaned toward contemporary but was still a bit rustic. We choose a brown tone with a grey wash with definite rustic overtones. The mirrors placed into the frames were custom and include a bevel of 1 1/2 inches. The most exciting part of the design was the end result - both mirrors worked beautifully and were a wonderful finishing touch to the remodeled bathrooms. Karen's terrific sense of design finished off with fantastic mirrors - a bathroom remodel worthy to be featured in Houzz!

And Karen's comments after the installation?

"The mirror is up and it’s beautiful!  We painted the vanities and the walls, added new lighting and your mirrors were the final added touch.  The mirrors have transformed the rooms!  Myrna, thanks again for your expertise and eye for detail."

Recognizing Advancements That Propelled The Future

by High Desert Frameworks!

For 70 years, Tru Vue® has been an innovator in the glazing industry. So for our anniversary display at the West Coast Art and Frame Expo in January 2017, we asked custom framers to create pieces using some of the most breakthrough products from our history, celebrating the Tru Frameable Moments™ of those times. 
 
To recognize  the launch of  Reflection Control® in 1969, Myrna Dow chose to commemorate a giant leap for mankind when on July 20, the first man walked on the moon.

Recognizing Advancements That Propelled The Future

By Myrna Dow, Owner of High Desert Frameworks

The moment

In 1969, the same year that Tru Vue® launched Reflection Control® glass and brought the custom framing industry forward, the United States put a man on the moon, closing a decade that was marked progress in many ways. When I was asked to create a piece that represented this era, it was clear to me that the moon landing was the Tru Frameable Moment™ from the time that had a lasting impact on generations to come.

I began the design by considering what images I would use to represent the moon landing. Fortunately, NASA has an incredible site that includes a large collection of photographs which, as digital printers, we were able to work with through trial and error to select those with the best resolution for our use. At first, our selections were oriented toward the Earth, but we ultimately chose to make it about the moon. Culling through the images, which influenced the ultimate design, was possibly the most challenging aspect of the project.

The design

The photos we chose are of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module Eagle, the Command Module Columbia that carried the astronauts on this historic mission to and from the moon, and astronaut Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon with astronaut Neil Armstrong reflected in the face plate of his helmet. On the latter, we added the words, “That’s one small step …,” signifying the impact this individual action had on the entire world. It changed our perspective on what is possible.

As the moon landing set in motion further space exploration, Reflection Control was just the beginning for premium glazing in the custom framing industry. Eventually, Museum Glass® was introduced, combining a superior anti-reflective viewing experience with 99% UV protection. Reflection Control is still used in some applications, but to use it to its best abilities in a framing project; you should only use one to two mat boards to ensure there is no significant air gap between the glazing and the artwork as a non-glare glazing will distort the image if there is too much space. Because of this, I created a thin layer of mat to frame the smaller inset photos. Also, I used a small mat liner around the edge to keep everything as level as possible without adding much depth.

Out of this world details

With the image of the pod, I knew I wanted to work with Atomic Frames on a 30”x 30” frame that emulated the burned, tarnished and colorful patina of the Command Module Columbia after blasting through the atmosphere to return to Earth. With its welded steel construction and custom finishing, Atomic Frames was an ideal choice. The piece is on display in my shop and has generated a lot of interest from customers.

Reflection Control was a major advancement for the industry at the time, and it shows how far Tru Vue has taken our industry with improvements on glazing in products like Museum Glass and Optium Museum Acrylic®. When you think about how much progress has been made since the end of the 60’s, it’s exciting to consider what’s next in any industry, including custom framing.
