Huge Selections

Thousands of moulding samples from the best manufacturers and all the best mats from Rising, Crescent, Artique, and Bainbridge, as well as a large stock of museum and conservation glasses, we can put together the perfect frame for you.

Conservation Framing

We truly care about the longevity of your piece...we have the materials and preservation methods to help...

Pricing Questions

If you are new to custom framing, sometimes there can be some sticker shock.  We are building custom furniture for your walls, after all!  We understand this concern and can explain what every charge is for.  What about those 50% off sales you get every week in the mail?  Chances are, our regular price is the same as their specials.  We invite you to bring in any quote from Michaels Custom Framing, or any other picture frame store to compare. 

So what will it cost?  Plan on starting at $75 for a basic frame, and going up from there.  The US national average for a custom frame is around $225.

Custom and Pre Cut Mats

Our state of the art computerized mat cutter is more than just a fun toy!  We have the ability to custom cut any mat shape you want! Letter cut outs, shapes, v-grooves galore, special designs and more! We can also "deboss" the mat for an elegant, subtle look you can't get at many frame shops. 

Fine Art, Reproductions, and Giclée

We offer exciting ways of preserving and displaying fine art prints including mural and standout mounts, and floating deckled edge framing...you have to see it believe it! Learn more about these services »

Mounting

Every piece needs to be treated special, and mounted in a different way - Mounting of your photos, artwork, needlework, fabric - you name it! We have both a clam shell and vacuum press to get the best results for your image.  Our combination of equipment, and our giant 50"x70" press assures we can tackle most any project you throw our way!

Lamination

We can laminate up to 24" wide in matte or gloss finish - this is a great way to add pop to your image, serve as a glass replacement, uv protect, and waterproof an image or poster.

Purchase Art

Artaissance is an online art reproduction gallery that allows you to custom size artwork to fit your home decor needs. Over 3,300 images available on both fine art paper and canvas. Learn more here »

Custom Mirrors (or cork, magnet, chalkboard, etc...)

Looking for a custom size mirror with a frame of your choice? Well, give us a call or come on by - we have hundreds of options and can manufacture a beautiful custom mirror for you right in our facility.  

Glassless Floating Display

This is an alternative but incredibly unique and gorgeous way to display a fine art print. First we print your image on a thick, velvet fine art paper, than we spray coat it with a special waterproof and uv resistant coating, and than we float it in a special moulding (available in several different colors). No glass needed! See our studio for examples.

Stamps | Coin | Medals | Mini Prints

Have something small you want to show off in a big way? Stamps, coins, art - we can even print small fine art "trading cards" which is all the rage right now. No job too big or too small.

Shadowbox | Needlework | Fabrics | Memorabilia 

Display your precious memories with a safe and uv protected shadowbox, or floating object mount in a frame, like this image here. The possibilities are as endless as they are exciting!

We look forward to taking care of you - give us a call!
