The design of your framing is the first element in the successful outcome of your framing project. Our goal is to preserve, protect, and compliment your art so that you can enjoy it for a lifetime. Our design team is experienced in both the aesthetics of your work and the necessary structure of your framing. We take the time to explain your choices and help you explore possibilities that will that will enhance your art and please your budget. We are experts at framing design consultation, while also encouraging you to be part of the process. We’ll give you as much guidance as you need, making the design process easy and comfortable so you get just what you want at a price that works for you.
Your work will be carefully framed by dedicated custom framers in a separate workroom. An owner or manager checks the structural support and archival technique throughout the execution of your framing project. In addition to photographs and works of art on paper or canvas, our specialized framers work with fabrics, three-dimensional art, antique paper, and heavy, fragile, or unusual objects. We custom design mirrors.
All of our work is done in-house using the latest in framing equipment under the supervision of owners and managers who have decades of framing experience. We use archival framing methods and materials. We are problem solvers who can find solutions for almost any framing challenge, be it the archival attachment of three-dimensional objects, a complex mat, or installation on difficult surfaces.
Custom Framing for Art Preservation:
Preserve the items you treasure with the help of our professional framing services. Whether your cherished item is an original by a well-known artist or a one-of-a-kind creation by your child, you can trust us to frame the art in a way that will both enhance its beauty and protect it from environmental damage. Artwork is framed using preservation-quality alpha-cellulose or cotton rag mats and UV-filtering glass or acrylic. Items of monetary or sentimental value are mounted using fully reversible, minimally invasive methods.
Custom Framing of Jerseys, Collectibles & Crafts:
Custom framing isn’t just for flat items. Collectibles such as sports jerseys, signed footballs, cross-stitch samples and needlepoint require special handling and mounting methods to preserve their value. Needlework is carefully blocked and pinned or laced over pure cotton ragmat.
Jerseys can be mounted using special, reversible fasteners or sewn to the backing board. Still want to take your jersey out and wear it sometimes? Ask us about easy-open frames that display your jersey while leaving it easily accessible. We have access to a wide variety of display cases specially designed for baseball, basketball, football or hockey jerseys. Have an actual game ball you want framed? We can create a custom shadow box or show you options for ready-made display cases.
Custom Framing as Storytelling:
Do you have a shoebox full of items you’re holding on to for the memories they represent? It’s time to rescue these treasures from the corner of the closet and let them retell your story. We all have mementoes of past events we want to remember: the concert you attended after working all summer to earn the money for the tickets; the scorecard showing a hole-in-one on your favorite golf course; your trek through Europe the summer of your senior year. Weddings, births, graduations: these events deserve to be remembered and proudly displayed.
Custom Framing to Honor Military Service:
Whether you have personally served in the armed forces or have supported a loved one in the service, you deserve to be proud of your contributions. From service flags to presidential commendations, from medals to unit patches, we will work with you to design a frame that celebrates your service.
Military retirement frames are a great way to combine medals, unit coins and patches acquired during your service. Flag display cases bring Old Glory from the closet and out on proud display in your home. Cases are available for just the flag, or we can combine the flag with other items depicting your military service. Computerized mat cutting technology allows us cut ranks and special shapes into the mats.
