During the month of November, Colbert Custom Framing & Art Printing will donate 25 percent of all art printing sales to the Edward Foundation for the Healing Arts program at Edward Hospital.
The art printing studio at the Colberts’ supercenter produces custom giclée art prints from customers’ own images or any public domain images. Images can be printed on canvas, art paper, or a variety of photo papers, and Photoshop services are available for image alteration and photo restoration. Images can be scanned, uploaded, or emailed.
“The giclée process uses archival pigments to create images with a similar look and feel to original art,” said owner Kevin Colbert.
All of the funds that are generated will go to the Healing Arts program and will be used to increase the presence of art and music at Edward.
“There is research supporting that art and music increase well being for all, but are particularly helpful during the healing process,” said Candace Olander, coordinator of the program. “Every time we add a piece of art or a musician’s visit, we increase our level of holistic care. We are grateful to the Colberts and all who take advantage of this wonderful promotion for their generosity. It is a win, win, win for all.”
Store hours are M-F 10-6 and Sat. 9-5. Colberts Custom Framing and Art Printing is located in Market Meadows Plaza, 75th St. and Naper Blvd.
