Tru Vue has added a new type of product to its collection of high-performance acrylic products called StaticShield™ Acrylic. StaticShield Acrylic eliminates common complaints typically associated with regular acrylic, such as dust attraction and scratching. It is coated with a thin patent-pending anti-static film layered upon an abrasion resistant, 99 percent UV-filtering acrylic sheet. StaticShield provides framing professionals with an alternative glazing solution for applications that require an anti-static acrylic but their customers do not want a best-in-class solution such as Optium®.

Frame Shop Donates Prints for Alzheimer’s
One Stop Framing & Gallery, Sherwood Park, Alberta, in conjunction with Framerica, has framed 100 prints of Gordie Howe, the Canadian Hockey player often referred to as Mr. Hockey. The prints by artist Sandra Ward were all framed using Framerica’s BonanzaWood 58065 with an ebony walnut finish, triple mats, and conservation glass. They were then donated to Scotiabank Pro-Am for its tournaments in support of the Gordie & Colleen Howe Fund for Alzheimer’s. In a special ceremony, one of the framed prints was placed into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The original hangs in the headquarters of the Baycrest Foundation in Toronto, a leading cognitive research institute. One Stop Framing & Gallery owner Lila Phillips has been in business 24 years.
