This place is awesome. I have had ten different photos framed here and each one is better than the last. They are very professional, affordable, and fast.

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.

Mats Should be More Interesting updates…

Mats are sometimes no fun with square corners.

$299 up for Jersey Framing

Sports memorabilia makes for a great decor item and we have done a lot of creative presentations to make your memorabilia truly memorable. Pricing starts  at $299 for a basic mat and black box frame up to 24 x 30 in.   With safe, non-yellowing protective acrylic to prevent fading of signatures, certificates and cards.  Produced locally in our shop so you don’t have to worry about shipping damages and delays.









$24.99 Grab and Go Certificate, Diploma Frames

We stock a variety of frames for do-it-yourself applications. Our $24.99 special 11 x 14 is designed for 8 x 10 and similar sized diplomas, certificates, awards etc.  It includes a black wood frame with two real high quality conservation mats, the outer in black and an inner in gold metallic.

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.

Creativity Abounds

We specialize in the creative, the unique and the imaginative when it comes to custom framing designs. For wall art, three dimensional works, awards, trophies, etc. with a full range of Imaginative picture framing and mirror framing designs by art and design specialists. Another example of services you can’t get at the big box stores. And yes these award winning custom framing and custom mirror framing service are available for all our sale and discount programs.  More examples
