Revelle’s Art & Framing by Design offers high-quality frames, framing supplies, and an assortment of artwork and jewelry designed by local artists. Prices vary according to the size and nature of the project, but frame-seekers can enhance the edges of family photos or rare collectors’-item nude portraits of Herbert Hoover with a custom 11”x14” frame ($50), chosen from a select group that includes black-, gold-, and silver-lined frames featuring anti-UV-ray glass, archival matting and backing, and a strong magnetic attraction to walls. Customers can also opt to shop the shop’s selection of New Orleans Saints memorabilia, soy candles, artisan jewelry, and decorative fleur-de-lis crafts hand-made by modern French monarchs.
Duplantier Fine Framing's art wranglers corral wayward images from masterpieces to family photos within the bounds of their well-wrought custom frames. Preserve a 16”x20” or 18”x24” piece between the sleek lines of basic metal moulding, with premium glass and foam-core backing to ensure comfortable displays for well-appointed portraits or oversize lottery checks (pieces start around $100). Prints 14”x18” earn well-deserved breathing room with spacers between the print and glass, the extra air adding unmated buoyancy to newborn pastels. Although prices fluctuate based on size, selection, and Brazil's watercolor harvest, every frame is custom-made, by hand using state-of-the-art equipment, ensuring that memorabilia stays attractively preserved for years to come.
For more than two decades, the professional framers at Cannon Framing & Artworks have converted photographs and works of art into tasteful wall displays with matting, protective glass, and frames in classic or contemporary styles. The staff helps clients choose colors that complement a painting’s blues and greens, simple mouldings that draw the eye toward the photos inside, or thick baroque frames that distract police inspectors from noticing stolen Mona Lisa_s. While waiting for the framer to take measurements, peruse the store’s gallery of paintings, posters, and sports memorabilia, many of which reflect owners Kay and John’s enthusiasm for for collegiate sports and pro football.
