Behind the scenes
We're not the biggest, but
we try to be the best. Much
of the work is done in plain view within our 2,200 square foot
first floor area, however there is a lot that goes on behind the
scene. Most of the messy stuff is done on the second floor where
we have moulding, storage, chopper, joiners, and saws. Aaah, the
smell of sawdust in the morning! When possible we try to stock
the moulding and cut it here. That gives us more control of slight
milling and color differences. Machinery is maintained in order
to achieve a true angle and clean cut. Correct cutting, gluing
and joining are important to the strength of the frame.
Our dry mount facilities are
at the rear of the first floor where we can dry mount up to a
48x96 poster, etc... The hard part is getting it out the door!
Nearby is the office, on a mezzanine
level, just above the fitting tables. Work flow is another hidden
function that is important in assuring good service. Poor processing
can waste time trying to find misplaced work orders, not knowing
what's been done, wasting materials, etc... O.K. Sometimes it
can get a little chaotic but we mostly stick with a set work flow
plan. The use of well designed order forms, locater bins, materials
lists, and set procedures ensure that the operation runs smoothly.
We have analyzed and fine tuned these steps over the years...since
