Favorite links ABOUT FABRICATED FRAMES AND KRISTIE HUBLER: Hi! I own Fabricated Frames, product designer, artist, illustrator, manufacturer (ok, I make and sell my products out of the house lol)...and fabric lover! I started the company in 2000, technically in early 2000. Wanted to have a business of my own since I was 20, where I could design home products, and the textiles on them. I graduated in 1994 from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with my Associate degree in interior design. Throughout the following years after graduation, I fluttered around trying to find my niche in life, and slowly began to accumulate fabric. I always wanted to make things, home accessories and gifts, using fabric. Ever since I was 4 years old, I can remember hiding amongst the bolts of fabric in a fabric store in the mall, in the now defunct So-Fro Fabrics ( now known as Joann Fabrics). My mother, and two aunts worked there at times in their lives, and they sewed, plus my grandmother sewed. My friends and family can tell you how much I collect samples, fabric, textiles. So one day, I was playing with paint and fabric, and a type of lightweight board, and I came up with a frame that was self enclosing. All in all, in the end it didn't work out, but it was a start, for design. I put it aside, and a few years later, I came up with an idea for a business. I'm sitting around my living room, and no lie, I counted over 100 photos, displayed on the walls, and in photo frames- I have a HUGE family, and LOTS of family friends. Dad has over 200 on his side alone, because he is the baby of 14 siblings, and mom's side is substantial too, with her the middle of 5 siblings, and her mom is one of 11. ...Anyway, I thought to myself, "I can do these! Plus I can design them BETTER, I'll design them with more flexibility and FUNCTIONALITY, plus I have all this fabric!" So, the wheels started going on overload in my head, and I started designing, and hitting the pavement with them.

Kristie Hubler's interior design portfolio I wanted to create and build a company that focused on bringing a multitude of functional, multi-styled home products to the market, for all, in any socio-economic class, to appreciate and purchase. Being in the interior design field, I found that quality was not being offered to those who could not afford it. I'd go in the Marketplace in Philadelphia, to get samples. Sure the products were great for those who could afford it, and it didn't hurt that most of the fabrics are tested for strength, durability, are treated with fireproof solutions, and more. However, I thought, "Wouldn't it be great if a customer, who couldn't get a sofa with fabric that cost $100/yd, could get that same fabric on a photo frame, or pillow, or small tabletop item?" That pushes me. Finding fabrics for my customers, that suit their needs, and make it affordable.

About Fabricated Frames and me ABOUT FRAME PRODUCTS: ALL products are Scotchgard (TM) protected, include a piece of acid-free, clear acetate in the frame, instead of glass, the backs and the struts (legs) are covered with fabric, front and back, most of the frames weigh under 2 ounces, the structures are acid-free, the boards I use for the framework, the parts I cover, or use for stability. They are top or side-loading, for I believe that turnbuttons have a HIGH tendancy of popping off. Easy to clean- just use a masking tape-lint roller, if non-washable frames are bought, see below, for care for washable ones. I can print their names and/or dates on the frame, by printing the text onto fabric. I run the fabric through the inkjet printed, iron fubible web to the backside of the fabric, cut to size, then adhere the fused fabric to the fabric on the frame. The fabric is treated so that it runs through the printer and can be Scotchgard protected easily. All my products are Scotchgard protected. The fabric has a treatment that allows the ink from the printer not to run, when I Scotchgard the fabric.

WHAT I CAN DO, AND HOW MY PRODUCT (My frames) WORKS: I can even use COMPLETELY acid-free supplies/products throughout the WHOLE frame design. So far, my frames are for photo paper weight papers and for thin, lightweight artwork only. My frames are easy to use, to pop out the photos. Just turn it on it's side, with the opening facing your hand, and shake it as if you are trying to shake something out. Once should do the trick. My frames are lightweight, and I like it that way. I feel the frames out there on the market are TOO heavy to hold and handle, especially if you are like me, with a little arthritis, plus little hands, so that becomes synonymous with needing all things to be light and dainty. Plus, the boards, that my competitors manufacturing what's out there use, well, they are not acid-free, just regular cardboard, and heavy- some cover wood with fabric. Acid-free products, when used, contribute to helping the photos from becoming yellow, and faded. Plus, I "finish" the inside corners of the frame front's picture window, unlike my competitors. I don't use turnbuttons (the movable latchy metal things on all 4 sides, or 3 sides, on the back of the easel backs), because I use to work in a department store, and OH MY goodness, the amount of turnbuttons that would pop off would astound you. And it's not the frame company's fault, it's the design of the turnbuttons, that the frame company's buy. It shouldn't be a pain, to put your photo in a frame. I do drop-ship, catalog sales, wholesale, binder sales, CUSTOM orders, where you have an idea, and want me to design it, and implement fabric on it, and am trying to get into fundraising. View my cd, if you want me to send you one, and you will see that I use all kinds of styles, concepts, themes, colors, sizes, shapes..I'm VERY flexible. I do CUSTOM: work, illustrations, designs, concepts, custom structures, even custom struts for the back of the photo frames!

WHY I DIFFERENTIATE FROM WHAT'S OUT THERE ON THE MARKET: My fabric photo frames protect a customer's photos. COMPLETELY acid-free supplies can be used for a COMPLETELY acid-free photo frame. Photos, if to be preserved, need acid-free photo frames, to protect them from yellowing and discoloring, and to make it harder for the photo to break down, over time. They are constructed of a lightweight, acid-free structure, included is an acid-free CLEAR piece of acetate, instead of glass.

To CLEAN/DUST the NONWASHABLE photo frames: The fabric photo frame can be "dusted" with a masking tape-lint roller, or LOW TAC masking tape, every few weeks, and the acetate can be cleaned, by running it under tap water, and buffing dry with a NON lint towel. FOR WASHABLE PHOTO FRAMES, and other items- can be placed in the wash, even the WASHABLE ribbon roses frames, in COLD water, delicate cycle, and then placed in the dryer on the LOWEST heat set temperature, for 10-15 minutes. DO NOT IRON. Some fabrics you can not iron, anyway. ALSO...MOST IMPORTANTLY- I wanted to make the insertion opening, where you slide the photo in, to be deeper, or wider, bigger, because, found that the ones on the market were made with openings that you couldn't even get your finger between the front and back, and it was hard to get the photo in or out of the frame!!!! So, MY openings are WIDE enough, so the photo is easy to come out.
