For nearly five decades, G & K Picture Frame Canada has been protecting keepsakes from the wear and tear of time⎯and they do so in style. With four shops scattered across Ontario, the family-owned business presents its clients with hundreds of custom framing options and combinations. Expert staff members at each location help navigate the oasis of choices, flexing their framing muscles by putting everything from diplomas and sports jerseys to exotic brochures and clothing behind glass. They can also safeguard 3-D objects and bulkier relics, such as guitars and needlepoint creations.
Lou and Marianne Fenninger founded Art Source in 1978 in a 200-square-foot basement. When demand for the couple's poster prints exploded, they soon expanded their products and services. Within a few years they'd outgrown the basement, and moved into the 6,000-square-foot showroom they occupy today.
Nowadays, Art Source reaches every corner of the globe, distributing art for both retail and wholesale clients as far-flung as Europe, Japan, and New Zealand. The shop helps customers find perfect pieces for complementing their room decor and covering up unsightly fire extinguisher cases with 10,000 stock images of classic, modern, local, and international art, as well as an original art design service, all available for custom printing. Additionally, Art Source's staff help patrons preserve cherished pieces with custom framing services that can wrap works of any size in a carefully designed and assembled border.
Sometimes, photos are too good to exist solely in the digital world. Luckily, Inkdoodle gives folks multiple options for designing professional-grade prints of their favourite images. Their menu of photo enhancements is exhaustive, and includes everything from simple colour and brightness adjustments to repairing tears or removing people from group pictures. You can also work with an Inkdoodle designer to print photos onto gallery-wrapped canvas, puzzles, coasters, magnets, or aluminum sheets, the latter of which adds an authentic touch to Tin Man's head shots. Completed designs can be shipped anywhere in Canada or the U.S., though locals have the option to pick up prints at their Markham storefront.
Frame Art Canada puts the work of artists and designers on the walls of home and business owners. The staff helps brighten bedrooms and lobbies with professional photo prints, custom framing jobs, and a selection of more than 2,000 works of art. Traditional and modern frames encircle landscapes and abstract shapes crafted from oil paints, and custom mirrors echo reflections across expanses. For more personalized designs, skilled printers convert photographs into realistic painting-style prints or onto display-ready canvas or glossy gicl?e.
