From (durian) tree to (picture frame) moulding...
Have a look a the photoshoot at our parent company E-Wood Moulding in Malaysia...
Some call them "old-fashioned", others say "essential"...
The Classic Series we just added are not new to the framing business. They have been here for ages, but they will also remain here for a while. That's the reason why we added these 3 items...
Now available from stock - in small box quantities as usual.
There is a demand for small L-shape mouldings. We added them to our collection: in black and in white - 35x34mm
The vertical part is only 5mm wide. This means it fits perfectly well underneath any other moulding to stack them (see sample).
Or you can use them as a very narrow L-shape moulding for contemporary art.
Do you want some samples? Please let us know by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are proud to announce that the improved version of our Faux-Ramin Series is available. We can now offer 5 shapes in 6 colors - all in GESSO-FREE. This means there is no more gesso between the fingerjoint durian wood and the finishing foil. Both choppers and saws can easily cut the Faux Ramin Series now.
Do you want some samples to see the cutting results on your own equipment? Just send a brief email to email@example.com and we will make sure you get some samples soon.
traditional: gesso underneath the foil
new improved version: gesso-free

In many countries, traditional choppers (guillotines) are still widely used by picture framers. In our collection, we have a big range of gesso-free mouldings, 100% suitable to cut with both saws or guillotines. Look for the "gesso-free" logo that points them out.
The Chicago series are available from stock. This series is ideal for contemporary art and photoframes. Black or grey on the inside and 4 different metallic colors on top & back. Following requests from many customers, we produced this series "gesso-free", using the latest techniques available.

E-Wood Moulding invested in a brandnew production line. Not just an extra line to increase capacity. No - a totally new line, creating new possibilities.
So far E-Wood Moulding and EC Mouldings concentrated on high-volume mouldings. The day-to-day items that every distributor and every framer in the world needs. A typical sample are the blacks and the faux-ramin. Sometimes we made them fancier like the Simoncello & Moonlight as alternatives to the traditional blacks.
Starting very soon, we will be able to offer you ornate mouldings and gold leaf mouldings. All of them with real European style & taste! Have a look at what's coming:
We added extra items to our European collection:
Moonlight - a 30x20mm black with a shade of silver or gold
Adeline - an imitation of the classic elm-bur mouldings in 5 sizes (10 to 40mm wide)
Black shadowbox - 41x20mm
Keith has made a couple YouTube-films to explain and promote some features of our EC Mouldings collection:
Don't forget to put the FrameArt Expo 2012 in your agenda: from March 30th till April 1st 2012. The location for 2012 will be Rome, joining the Photoshow.
Following the success of the first edition in Milan, the importance of this show for the picture framing business will certainly grow. Don't miss it... EC Mouldings will exhibit - we hope you will visit our booth !...
At the FrameArt Expo in Milan we will introduce our new ECO-sticker. We recommend our distributors to offer these stickers to their framers to put on the corner samples of our mouldings. Tests have proofed that corner samples with this small colorful sticker will attract the consumers' attention to the EC Mouldings collection, which will lead to higher sales of ECO frames...
At the FrameArt Expo you will find us on stand C53. The EC Mouldings team will be waiting for you: Keith & Kris and our Malaysian partners Calvin, Chai and Goh from the production facility at E-Wood Moulding. You can now pre-register for the show, so you don't have to wait at the entrance.
EC Mouldings will exhibit at FrameArt Expo 2011 in Milano (Italy). The FrameArt Expo is the new international picture framing show, where you will meet manufacturers and suppliers from all over the world. The show runs simultaneously with PhotoShow 2011 - the most important annual exhibition for photo and digital imaging in Italy. More informaton on FrameArt Expo can be found on this website: www.frameartexpo.com .
Some customers ask us a recommendation for a hotel. We found & booked this one for ourselves: Hotel Nasco at walking distance from the show. Their website is www.hotelnasco.it.
At SACA 2010 we showed you a wide range of the products made upon request for customers of E-Wood moulding and that can be offered to you as "special production" items. Now these mouldings can be seen in our showroom in Oostende (Belgium). Do you want to visit us at the Belgian coast? Please contact Kris to fix an appointment!
EC Mouldings now runs on 100% green electricity! Our sister company Cami added another 159 solar panels to the installation of last year. We now have 208 solar panels on the roof of the Cami/EC Mouldings warehouse - producing 50.000 KWh per year. This is more than we need to run our warehouse. At EC Mouldings - we care for nature !
Our new items (Simoncello white & alu look) are moving very fast. Following this success, we will have an addition in the same range soon. It will be available by November 2010.
Keith will be visiting Photokina (Köln - Germany) and the Art Fair Europe (Nüremberg - Germany) next month. If you want an appointment, please call him: +44 1625 574806 (office) or +44 777 5604630 (mobile).
EC Mouldings vs FSC...
Some of our customers ask if our environmentally friendly mouldings have the "FSC" label. Well… they don't! But this does not mean our mouldings not eco-friendly - on the contrary!
It's a widespread misunderstanding that people think that FSC means environmentally friendly. No! FSC refers to the origin of the wood. FSC wood comes from sustainable forests. This label has no extra information regarding the additional manufacturing process and materials involved in producing the moulding … Our mouldings are made on durian wood, harvested from the durian orchards after their fruit harvesting period is over and going for replanting process. Our partner E-Wood Moulding has obtained a statement from the Malaysian Timber Certification Council to proof the origin of the wood are indeed from the orchard plantation..
But we don't stop here!...
We also care about the way our wood is transfered into the mouldings we offer. First of all we don't use solvent-based paints any more, as they are very unfriendly for nature. We only use water-based paints.E-Wood Moulding is also working very hard with their suppliers of foils to get eco-friendly supplies.
Although we don't have the FSC label, our products surpass it !!…Please feel free to contact us for more information regarding this issue. Our philosophy is not a commercial strategy - it's our mission !
Following the request of some of our distributors, the new items and the new production of existing items will be packed in smaller boxes. This gives our our customers some extra advantages: boxes are lighter, easier to handle and there is a smaller minimum quantity.
A few more weeks and we will present you our new collection 2010. These items will arrive mid June.
We would like to thank all our customers and prospects for visiting us at Quadrum/SACA 2010.
EC Mouldings and our partner E-Wood Moulding will exhibit at the Quadrum/SACA 2010 show in Bologna. The show will take part from Thursday 18th till Sunday 21st of February 2010. We welcome you to our stand (hall 26 - stand C17), where we can show you the full EC Mouldings collection, the new prototypes for 2010 and a major part of the E-Wood collection.
EC Mouldings and Cami made a series of 100 photo frames 15x20cm in environmentally friendly mouldings.These frames will be sold door-to-door at 10 EUR/pc. The total amount will be donated to the "Haiti Lavi 1212" fund raising for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti in the beginning of this year. The target is to raise at least 1000 EUR. We will keep you informed of the final result.
update mid March: we managed to support Haiti Lavi for 1031,40 EUR !...
At EC Mouldings we try to support nature as much as we can. That's the reason why one of the EC Mouldings partners (Cami) invested in solar panels - 49 pcs supplying us 10.000 KWh per year. Now over 30% of the annual power we use in our warehouse comes from green energy. This fits well with our environmentally friendly mouldings. At EC Mouldings - we care for nature!
To answer some of the most frequent questions, Keith made a short film along with a picture framer. Please have a look at YouTube to get the answers to some of your questions or remarks regarding our environmentally friendly mouldings.
The latest new series are available right now: crosshatch and the small metallic.
"ec" will become the brandname of our environmentally friendly mouldings. You will notice that the EC logo will appear on all our marketing tools and on our packing material. Detailed information on the EC brandname and the 3 different series (H2O, Orchard and Natura) is available here.
Two of the new series are available right now: Simoncello and the shadowbox faux-ramin.
An updated version of our EC Mouldings catalog is now online. It contains 4 new series that will be available from the beginning of April (shadowbox faux-ramin and simoncello) or from the beginning of May (small metallics & crosshatch).
Our partner E-Wood Moulding is constantly improving their production process. This way they stay ahead of competition - especially on new techniques.
