Professional Hanging Solutions was conceived when the Long Island picture framing shop I worked in had clients with a need for professional picture and mirror installation. In 1991, I began working at New York Solar Print in New Hyde Park, NY (now J.C. Frame Master). I was taught all aspects of the art/picture framing business by master framer Joseph Castrianni. Occasionally clients would ask me to hang art and mirrors for them. With little knowledge I was up for the challenge and took on the projects. I developed my own techniques and gained a tremendous knowledge of past and present building materials, tools and hardware involved with installing other items including unframed art, tapestries, and decorative accessories in all types of surfaces. I became proficient at hanging formal and informal groupings of pictures and in locations that were hard to reach.
I assumed other Long Island picture framing shops and galleries had a need for this service as well. In February of 2004, I started cold calling to galleries and custom picture framing shops in Nassau and Suffolk counties. I introduced myself and explained the services I am able to provide and received a much welcome response from business owners who were grateful to finally have this resource for their clients. Almost immediately, I started receiving calls for picture hanging and installations. Without formally advertising, I have grown Professional Hanging Solutions making new connections and adding installers with service to N.Y.C. and the metro area.
I have earned an outstanding reputation by not just being knowledgeable but by being professional, courteous, accommodating and willing to take on unusual & seemingly impossible projects.
