MADE IN USA
Proud to be 100% made in America.
I learned a lot from that first run of the '5second®' frames – and it strengthened my determination to make your new & improved EasyGallery® frames in the BEST possible way – right HERE in the U.S.A..
I'm pleased to be working with these dedicated, family-owned companies to make our quality products as locally – and sustainably – as possible:
Skip Glatt and his team were innovating with recycled plastic back when 'green' was just a color. A true recycled-plastic pioneer, Skip knows how to get the most from the materials and production. Their attention to the details - down to .003" - is what makes our EasyMat® backers work like butter. Our dandy little 'button' hangers, too.
Artists have trusted Crescent's quality for decades – and they're still family run after more than a century. They've created a special mat just for EasyGallery® frames – using their Eco-Core™ recycled white (stays white) core, faced with their fine RagMat™ cotton paper.
Adams Foam Rubber
We worked together for well over a year to create the perfect, earth-friendly packing protection. (Hard to believe, right?) But, it was very important to me that the packing work beautifully – without putting anything extra into our landfills. Our dandy little 'frame huggers' are made of recycled plastic. They're designed to be reused again & again (for moving, packing mirrors, etc.). Once you're done with them, they can be recycled with plastic bags at the grocery store.
Adams Foam has been a long time supporter of the "Say no to Styrofoam!" movement.
Another local, family-owned company – with more than 75 years of expertise. Not only do they make a great product, they've been our partner, supporting our little company from the first day we met. You've got to like a company where the grandfather (in his 80s!) still checks in at work.
Burnich Frame & Moulding
Our only non-local supplier, Gary and his team make our handsome stained Alder and painted Silk White moulding. Everything's handcrafted by this solid, family-owned company near beautiful Flathead Lake in Montana (down the road from my cousin's converted tannery!), using only 100% American grown FSC-certified wood.
These guys are definitely pioneers in eco-friendly moulding. When other companies were throwing in the towel and importing moulding from overseas, they dug in and eliminated solvent based materials. I just love the soft, almost velvety finish on the Matte Black they make just for us! Check out their green credentials.
They printed our face papers and hanging templates – using vegetable based inks on recycled paper. They're constantly winning awards for their environmental innovation. I've worked with them for years (decades), and they're consistently great. If you need something printed, I couldn't recommend them more. (Note that the largest templates are large format copies from a local repro house.)
