    Spotlighter: Jim Looney

    Sully Framing and Art

    ’85-’86: Working with a friend, Jim wrote a program to help his friend estimate framing costs and began to travel throughout the framing industry to market this new program.

    ’87: Jim and his friend Cosmo transitioned from marketing the framing program to doing the framing personally with the intention to open up a shop in Sully Station (hence the name “Sully Framing and Art”).

    ’89: Jim opened a shop in Leesburg and brought on some extra help, including Leslie.

    Eventually Jim consolidated his business back into his basement, and brought Leslie with him.

    Currently, Jim has joined the chamber for the 3rd time in 2013.

    Jim has framed all sorts of different projects, from diplomas, letters from the president, athletic gear, to a teapot or a antique japanese flag.

    Jim spoke a little bit about the different types of frames that he has access to, and depending on the object to be framed and the size of the frame how that can affect what options you have.  For instance, with larger frames (a world map for instance) requires a metal frame for stability, and he can even add in a wood trim to make it look like wood.
