Commercial, Decorators and Real Estate Projects

 We bid commercial installations and provide complementary services when you have a demanding client who wants the best at a reasonable cost. As volume goes up unit costs go down…but the quality remains unchanged.

The Oversized, the Awkward, the Fragile…

We do the custom framing jobs others can’t…oversize items like flags or large antique French posters. We work with hand wrapped fabrics in your choice of colors and materials for liners and unique mats, special mat openings, multiple special shaped openings, three dimensional objects,..just about anything that needs a decorative and protected mount for wall or floor.
And we build everything from scratch cutting our frames and mats in house and creating the final product from the inside out so that everything fits and looks right. Many big box stores order prefab components from remote facilities and sometimes there are errors in size, color, style or design and it can take a long time to get a redo.  More Examples.

Experience Counts

Our principles have over 80 years in the art and framing business.    There is probably nothing our chief technician can’t do when it comes to framing art, mirrors, or objects.

And we apologize that we are a little hard to find and very cramped.  We can’t pay big box retail rents without keeping our very skilled employees at minimum wages.   That would not be fair. Nor could we keep our prices at levels that customers have told us are often 1/2 the big box stores.
