Whisper simplifies and streamlines the framing process, for each edition offering one frame and one frame only — the artist’s choice. Our frames are all made by John Melville, a custom framer with twenty-five years of experience who learned the craft growing up in his family’s framing shop in Detroit. Melville works with many of New York City’s major galleries, collectors, museums and auction houses.
The custom frame that will accompany each edition will be chosen by the artist who created the work so that each print is enhanced by a frame that best suits the piece. Melville will make modern, gallery-style wooden frames with spline corners in a range of wood and lacquer finishes. He uses only museum-grade mat and mounting boards and UV-filtering Plexiglas.
Photographic prints that are 11 x 14 inches and smaller will be framed with white mat borders. Larger prints will be framed to spec, without borders.
All photographic prints arrive with an adhesive-backed vinyl certificate of authenticity that can be applied to the back of the frame.
