Another well displayed piece of framing in a shadow box style frame. Here we have a "floating" folded flag with a letter and a photograph underneath and three capsules containing some dirt. I think they are going to love it!

Congressional Framing at its best!

One of the most popular items to frame in the congressional arena is something called the RedLine Bill. Today we framed a 2-page redline bill with the “fat” pen used to sign it. Because of the thickness of the pen, we had to extend the back of the frame to accommodate the this. We could have used a different moulding to make the frame that had a much deeper rabbit, but the congressional office wanted to use this particular moulding — and so we made it happen!

1970 Stanley Cup Champion Bobby Orr Jersey (replica) is incased in an appropriate matt-black shadow box style frame -- custom made just this jersey. It is strategically stitched in the locations to make the jersey come alive.

A little bit about this Jersey:

The 1970 Stanley Cup Finals was contested by the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues, appearing in their third straight finals. The Bruins were making their first appearance in the final since 1958. The Bruins would win the series 4–0, their first Stanley Cup victory in 29 years. Bobby Orr scored the Cup-winning goal on Glenn Hall, with an assist from Derek Sanderson, at forty seconds of overtime, and the subsequent image of Orr flying through the air, his arms raised in victory — he had been tripped by Blues' defenseman Noel Picard immediately after scoring the goal — is one of the most famous and recognized hockey images of all time.

These are three African Batik Panels appropriately displayed in a beautiful contemporary style black frame with red edges. Each Batik panel is strategically "stitched" from the top -- leaving them to naturally hang inside each mat opening. Don't let your artwork settle for anything less!

Frame restoration may not be our expertise — and we don't claim to be — however, we can make an old or damaged frame look much better. A full restoration of a frame is quite expensive and may not be justified. At Sully Framing & Art we can touch it up, paint it in spots, fix it where possible and feasible and clean it. The cost difference can be tenfold. Below is an example (before and after) of an old frame that the customer did not want to break the piggy bank. #sullyframingisthebest

Another masterpiece frame incasing a Jersey — carefully stitched — on a mustard suede lined shadow box to hang as natural as possible. At the bottom we creatively incorporated a small opening to display the photograph that is associated with the Jersey.

Seems like people are wanting to frame 3 dimensional pieces such as sports jerseys and scarfs. Here we have a “scarf” given to a member of congress by the Dalai Lama, an important monk of the Gelug school, the newest school of Tibetan Buddhism. The scarf is actually more than twice the length shown here but we creatively folded it to frame it along with a letter from the Dalai Lama.

Start creating your own surroundings for your enjoyment and let us assist you in that journey.

A masterpiece of a shadow box incasing a Little League All Star Jersey. Inside is a gray suede lined shadow box that the jersey is carefully stitched — to hang as natural as possible. We created the banner as well. To finish it off we used Optium Museum Acrylic that is virtually unbreakable, has almost no reflection, half the weight of glass, has no static, and offers the most UV protection available that keeps this jersey from fading.

Face it, you gotta get your’s done!

This was something relatively simple to frame -- a page from an old yearbook. However, my customer happened to rip the page out in an uneven way that left the right side of the page not only ragged but actually took some of the photograph with it. We were able to make it look as if nothing had happened and in doing so, we cut the the mat to fit the page and make it more interesting.

He was another very happy customer! Can we do something with YOUR memorabilia?

When framing a 3-dimensional item, the level of framing skills, artistic ability, and length of experience really count! Here we have four golf clubs displayed in a single shadow box. Our customer wanted to present this as a gift, and I believe we were able to “wow” her and she was thrilled to be able to give this to her father. Much time, planning, and effort went into this project and it was worth it for our customer!

An article written for the "On the Banks" magazine, November 2016 issue. It's written as an interview with me.

Sharing a little bit more about who we are:

Tell us a little bit about your background.

I was born in San Salvador, El Salvador, and then moved to Athens, Greece, as a child. I graduated from Kubasaki High School, Okinawa, Japan, in 1973. I then returned to the United States and attended college at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. In 1979, I began working for the Federal Government and have been living in Sterling, VA, since 1982.

Tell us about your story with Sully Framing & Art.

I am always interested in the latest and greatest gadgets and having just returned from Tokyo with a pocket-type computer (4Kb and programmable in BASIC), I wrote a program that would allow an artist to calculate the cost of a frame in less than a minute. This particular artist was so impressed that he thought we should market this computer with the software … and so we did. The product was called Comp-u-Frame. We attended our first picture framing trade show in September 1986, sharing a booth with Roanoke Moulding Design.

I began to rethink what I was doing working for the federal government and that I should return to my “roots of talent” – Art. Shortly after determining that marketing the Comp-u-Frame product was cost prohibitive, I decided to start my own picture framing and art business. My friend (and partner in the Comp-u-Frame business), Cosmo Quattrone, and I attended the North Carolina Framing School to eagerly learn about the business. After returning from North Carolina, we purchased all the equipment and supplies necessary to start the business.

Having decided to open the business in a new shopping center being built in Centreville called Sully Station, we decided the most appropriate name for the business would be Sully Framing & Art. Since the shopping center was not going to be completed for another six to eight months, we printed business cards, letterhead, envelopes, etc. and started doing framing from my basement. After putting in eight hours with the government – commuting to and from Washington, DC – we framed artwork for our customers until midnight or later almost every night. It was not long after, that Cosmo informed me that this was not for him. I bought out his interest in the business and took over the company.

What is unique about your business?

We are a home-based business and have a niche market audience. Leslie Dann-Barber, who has been with me from the beginning, operates my home business and is one of the area’s best framers. Our attention to detail and quality of workmanship come short of extreme. We are also known for our unique ability to display multiple items in a frame in a way that tells a story. We "cuddle" our customers and ensure their experience is a pleasant one. It is imperative that the outcome for our customers and Sully Framing & Art is that we “wow” you and that you are happy with our custom picture framing -- as we stamp every frame on the back with our slogan “A Relationship with Sully Framing & Art is Forever."

Given your business expertise and the nature of what you do, what advice can you offer to the residents?

Art is the very essence of life. What and how you surround yourself with describes the type of person you are. It anchors your presence and propels your future in that direction. I say, “make your home, office and surroundings a place you can retreat to.” I believe it is important that it reflects who you are, what you do and how you live your life. We can honestly say that not many other custom framing shops will be able to do what we do.”

Now is the time to frame that something special for the holidays!

Taking a fun and colorful acrylic painting of two cats and making it "POP" is what we did with this small painting. The original stretched painting was not square and so we framed it in a Hand Finished metal antique black frame and hiding the fact that the stretched painting was not square. Then we build another framed called a floating type frame and placed it inside. Now you have something worth bragging about hanging on your wall -- Meow!

This is a shadow box frame -- approximately 3.5 inches deep -- we made to proudly display a Boy Scouts of America uniform with all its patches and other pertinent era memorabilia. It was carefully laid out and properly mounted on a black suede mounting board. I have to say it is beautiful and screams "look at me!"

Do you have a Uniform or Jersey or something that is calling you to have framed?

This is a shadow box frame we made -- that is embedded into the wall of the house. It has a light at the top to illuminate the artwork inside. It's 6 inches deep and has mirrors on the back and both sides to reflect the family heirloom piece from different angles. The bottom where the vase rests is blue suede. The goldish yellow frame was touched up with a bit of burnt red to match the reddish tones in the vase.

It makes quite an impact and impression — people will notice it!

The question is: Can we build one for you?

This is one of our most exquisite framing projects we have done. It is an original piece by Lee White, an abstract expressionist mixed media black artist. As you can see, we even painted the mat to complement the art and built a frame to bring it all together. We can honestly say that not many other custom framing shops will be able to do this.
