Robin and Barry have worked together since the late 80’s in various capacities in the art gallery and picture framing industries. Their combined 70+ years of experience include nationally known companies such as:
Both are Certified Picture Framers, (CPF) an industry measure of knowledge and practices in preservation of documents, original artwork, textiles, fine art photography, family photos and memorabilia. During their time with The Great Frame Up national chain of frame shops, they served as Directors of Operations, National Director of Merchandising, mentored and supervised day to day activities for some of the most successful locations.
It was during this time in the early 1990’s where the TGFU Founder foresaw the opportunities that digital printing services could provide and asked Barry to develop an in-store service module that could be added to existing stores. The technology, equipment and products now offered were in their infancy at this time and this is where Barry first developed his print and color management skills. As time went on, the quality and availability of materials, the tested longevity of giclee prints, and net cost to artists came together and became a viable business opportunity.
Their passion for art and photography brought them to Atlanta in 2003 to begin an art services business incorporating these new technologies of fine art imaging and reproduction creating Digital Arts Studio, a “one-stop-shop” now serving clients across the USA for over 16 years.
