At Deck the Walls in Kettering, Ohio, Laura Pribish assists customers interested in custom needlework framing. Laura Pribish has a detailed understanding of the delicate nature of needlepoint and, therefore, avoids adhesives and other hazardous framing materials. She is also well versed in undoing--if necessary--needlework framing in the areas of pining and lacing, which are methods of framing that are completely reversible. All of the materials she uses are pH-neutral and lignin-free. Additionally, she recommends that UV-filtering glass be applied to the frame to eliminate 97 percent of harmful light that can fade or damage the artwork over time.

At Deck the Walls, Laura Pribish also provide services relating to photo and document restoration. Ms. Pribish is fully trained in custom digital imaging, which allows customers to repair tears, stains, fading, discoloration, tape marks, and many other issues that could blemish their beloved images and paperwork.
