FastFrame first germinated in Europe before spreading to Japan, Brazil, Australia, and the United States. A trained local helms each of the 300 locations, and guarantees every design for 30 days and the craftsmanship for a lifetime. Artisans crown original works of art and prints with ornate mouldings. They also store historical artifacts and three-dimensional memorabilia in shadow boxes. FastFrame’s team has even been known to frame sports equipment, plasma-screen televisions, and childhood homes.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100), personalized jerseys glisten (most for under $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24x36 pieces are under $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
Photographers are always trying to capture the perfect shot—but for the team at Personal Canvas Art, those photos are just part of the bigger picture. They screen photos onto museum-grade canvases with eco-friendly Roland inks, transforming snapshots into lasting wall-hangings. To start the process, they optimize images, brightening colors and enhancing contrast. For an optional painted effect, they can edit brushstrokes into images, rather than leaving them on finger-painting stations in kindergarten rooms. The final product ships within two days of order placement, and arrives on the client's doorstep packaged with all necessary hanging hardware. Personal Canvas art also crafts such custom gifts as picture frames, mugs, and t-shirts.
The photographers at Signature Pix Photography melt into the background during weddings and special events, silently capturing the most candid, visually expressive moments of the event. With a combination of artistry and technical savvy, the team alternately catches sincere close-ups of brides and grooms, as well as distance shots, manipulating the focus in order to make subjects visually leap from the background. In addition to chronicling weddings and engagements, the team also turns their attention on to single subjects during modeling shoots.
With an eye for artistic angles and candid moments, photographer Kate Papania has made a career out of immortalizing clients in mantle-worthy poses. The seasoned shutterbug travels to Atlanta-area locales for on-location shoots, and also lends her savvy eye to wedding ceremonies and engagement portraits.
