Do you do custom framing?
We have a full-service custom framing department that does all of the work in-house. Our framers have over 75 years of experience in preserving and presenting your artwork and memories.

What is the average time frame for a custom framing job?
We can usually get a framing job finished within 2 weeks or less. We carry the largest supply of in-stock frame molding, mat board, and picture framing glass, which can expedite your framing order.

Can you give me a “ballpark” price for custom framing?
Our “ballpark” ranges from $20-$1,000: depending on what materials will be used, size, conservation needs, etc. The best thing to do is to bring your items in so a framer can work with you to give you an accurate price.

Do you have coupons or discounts on custom framing?
We don’t need to! Our daily pricing matches (if not beats) the big chains claim to 50% off (or other crazy deals). Those chains inflate their everyday pricing in order to get you to come in thinking you’re saving a bundle, which is not true! Plus, we do all of our work in house – nothing gets sent out to an unknown framer.

Do you sell items for do-it-yourself framing?
We have all of the components for you to do the framing yourself: Mat cutters, frames, glass, board, tape, cleaners & hardware.
