Mike and I will be featured in an upcoming ad for Wizard International, who makes the computerized mat cutter (CMC) we use in our shop. I wrote them about a particularly challenging project I completed using both the visualization and CMC, with great results. The story was first on their website, as an ongoing series called "Me and My Wizard" which tells stories about framers using Wizard products. I guess we are such a zany framer couple, they decided to feature us on one of their ads as well.
Our instructions was to hold a mat board against a white wall....Well, HELLO, have you ever been in our shop. You can't even see the walls and they are anything but white. Never fear, with two sheets of oversize foamcore a back drop was formed. Rickelle the framing, painting and photography wizard, snapped some pics of us. I sent them on to Merilee at Wizard and she was very pleased. They are crafting an appropriate quote for the ad, but I couldn't resist using the blank white sign for a little ad of our own.
Well, coming to a framing magazine soon will be the Framing Drury's and YES, we LOVE our Wizard! (and they didn't pick the one of us fighting over the matboard, something a little more mainstream....)
