Where to get Tru Vue Framing Glass in Santa Fe, NM

I've just relocated to Santa Fe from Colorado and no longer have delivery of framing glass to my studio in Santa Fe.  This is critical for me as I frame my own work for sale and to ship to galleries.

The only vendor listed on the Tru Vue website in my area was Larson-Juhl, but they don't create accounts if you're not a brick and mortar storefront.

If any of you New Mexico artists who also frame work know of a resource for Tru Vue framing glass, I would appreciate you sending a reply with that information.  I currently have enough to frame for my Boulder gallery, but after that, it might get to be a desperate situation.  

Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

Thanks Johanna!  That's kind of you to say.  Likewise, your photography is gorgeous and you have such an interesting story of how you began.  I enjoyed it.

And yeah, I was shocked at how hard it was to get somebody to take my

You're very welcome.  I actually spent a lot more time searching than a few days - tearing my hair out in frustration.  In the end it was somebody from TruVue that gave me the lead to Valley Moulding, but with no guarantees - just said they would be somebody to try.  I ordered three or four cases of glass right off the bat (starvation and there was some really good deal associated with the quantity - either a discount on the glass or the shipping was comped - I don't really remember.

Hi Johanna - I'm happy to.  The company is International Moulding in Phoenix - that's the overarching company which apparently has smaller companies under them.  The company that I went through is Valley Moulding...confusing, I know.  

The phone number I have for International Moulding is 800-922-2467 and the website (a good place to start) for Valley Moulding is

The first order I placed with them was with my credit card and, after a credit app review,  I was eventually approved for net 30 terms.

I found the folks at Valley Moulding very nice to deal with and thought the glass prices were good.

Good to know.

Well, you won't know until you inquire. I used to by Tru-vue boxed glass from Overhead Door of Casper. I still could, but I get 90% of my supplies in Billings from Montana Moulding, including all glazing.

I use Conservation glass for everything:  Tru Vue Conservaton clear for most, Museum Glass for some.  I would be surprised to learn that an overhead door company carried framing glass of any stripe.

I'm speaking from experience, not speculation. What do you mean by high end framing glass? Tru-vue makes all kinds for the framing industry. So what specific Tru-vue product do you want?

Haha on the 'big city lights' Barrie,

No offense, but I prefer to avoid Albuquerque if I can help it.  Besides, I have a torn rotator cuff and need the delivery.

Overhead door companies generally carry window glass.  I've never heard of one who carried high end framing glass, but I could be wrong.

Wait a minute...Albuquerque is 65 miles from Santa Fe. What's wrong with you driving an hour or so to get your glass? Plus you get to see the big city lights and have some fun not happening in Santa Fe.

You might try Overhead Door of Santa Fe. Overhead Door companies often carry boxed glass lites.
