- Products for the Artist and Photographer -
Raphael's has been in the business of providing "customizing embellishments" to the picture frame industry since 1976. Our Fabrics, Fabric-Covered Liners, Custom Panels and other creative accents have been used by thousands of Professional framers nationwide to enhance and personalize the product they offer their customers. While in the past it was not so common to see Artists or Photographers who spent much time framing, or Framers printing and publishing art or images that they were framing, the rise of the Internet has increasingly blurred the lines between these three creative activities.
The focus ofraphaelsAP is to provide the sort of high quality, creative components to professional Artists and Photographers that we have become known for within the Framing community. We do not provide Framing Services, and unlike many other wholesale providers these days, we do not sell our products to the general public. If you are a professional Photographer or Artist we believe we can offer you a range of products that will allow you to display your images in a way that is more original and appealing and that is also more convenient, leaving you more time to concentrate on what you do best.
The products we provide are not mass produced, so they may be a little more expensive, but they include many features that will save you and your customers time, and allow your work to stand out in a crowded market. All of the materials we work with have been specially selected for their sustainability, as you will see in our Hardwood Float Frames, designed to make the most of what is most plentiful in the way of raw components. We recognize the unfortunate message that an unthinking or extravagant design passes down through the supply chain, and we have seen the undesirable impact this can have on precious resources such as the natural hardwood we use.
What we can offer better than any other company, is a complete package that can include the Artist Canvas, Artist Panels, Cradled Panels , Stretcher Bars, Fabric Covered Liners and various styles of Custom Produced outside Mouldings. Whether you are simply looking for a better source for your artist panels or contemplating selling online, we can offer you the special finishing touches that art buyers appreciate.
All Artist Panels and Frames Proudly
Manufactured Right Here in the USA!!!!
