At Heritage Frame & Picture Co, we can attest that Mother’s Day is one of the most celebrated holidays of the year.
Compared to Father’s Day, Mother’s Day is more popular. As a result, more money is spent on Mother’s Day, not just in our framing shop but in general.
According to research, 30% more money is spent celebrating on Mother’s Day than Father’s Day. In addition, one of the most memorable Mother’s Day gifts are custom framed pictures and artwork. But, before we discuss why mothers enjoy receiving custom framed artwork, pictures, and memorabilia, we did some research to understand why mothers are giving more gifts and more money is spent than on fathers.
According to Dr. Lars Perner, a consumer psychologist at the University of Southern California, we spend more on mom because most people think mothers deserve bigger and better presents. "To some extent, wrong or right, mothers are often considered to be the biggest contributor to the home life. "People tend to understand the sacrifices they make, that's what you see. Moms have a special place in people's hearts - there's a special idea of what they offer the family."
In regards to fathers, Dr. Perner states, that most people think “dads are less interested in tangible tokens of appreciation. They're not typically gift-oriented. They generally don't expect anyone to feel an obligation to buy material items for them."
As one of the oldest and most recognized custom framing and corporate framing shops in New York City as well as Tarrytown, we have seen an increase in custom framed art and pictures being gifted to both mothers and fathers.
As this Mother’s Day arrives, we have some suggestions on items to have custom framed that will provide lasting memories.
Great items to have framed include photos of the mother’s childhood, her parents, photos of her children, children’s artwork, memorabilia as well as sentimental letters. Custom framed art and pictures, last more than a lifetime. Therefore, custom framed items endure until the next generation. This preserves the memories while creating family heirlooms. Custom framed mirrors are also popular. In fact, many of our corporate framing clients have their mirrors framed as well.
After your custom framing is done, we can also install your new framed work in the home or office. We provided installation for pictures and art whether we provided the frame or not. We are also able to create a beautiful art wall at your request. We have customers in Tarrytown, Chappaqua, Scarsdale, Manhattan, Rye, Bedford and Pound Ridge who use our services. So even if you are not near our custom picture framing shop in Tarrytown, we are still able to frame and install your artwork.
Another service we offer at Heritage Frame is art restoration. We restore artwork that is aged, damaged or perhaps just the frame itself is in need of repair or replacement. Restoring art is a specialty that very few framing shops can perform. We have been restoring artwork since the founding of our business more than 140 years ago in lower Manhattan.
