Helmed by a pair of passionate framers, Middleton Art & Framing takes pride in carefully protecting artwork from the ravages of time and sunlight through in-house constructed frames and glass that protects against UV damage. Local artwork adorns the walls of the cozy store, where guests confer with the knowledgeable staff to find the ideal frame to accent and protect any outlandish item, such as Turkish rugs, racing suits, or frame collections.
With more than 1,000 pieces of pre-framed art and a skilled staff of Certified Professional Framers on board, Madison Art and Framing combines its vast selection and expertise to fulfill the aesthetic needs of each customer. The shop’s sophisticated framing services can enhance any work of art with mats, frames, and glass put together by a crew also skilled at canvas-stretching, repair, and restoration work. During custom-framing consultations, each frame maker works one-on-one with the customer to ensure the work performed is exactly as envisioned, keeping incidences of satisfaction high and Hulk transformations low.
Since 1989, designers and framers at the locally owned and operated The Great Frame Up have covered artwork and photos with thousands of frame and mat combinations and prevented 3-D keepsakes and sports memorabilia from selling themselves on eBay by enshrouding them in shadowboxes and acrylic cases. Framing jobs take place entirely on-site, ensuring a speedy turnaround on projects and a personal guarantee on all craftsmanship. The Great Frame Up’s website offers tips and trends to help customers navigate the process, from choosing frames to hanging and arranging finished pieces.
Since 1983, Monroe Street Framing has been sheltering frameless photos and works of art from quality-diminishing elements using custom-made molding and an array of framing services. With 43 years of combined preservation practice, the owners and staff possess plenty of creative expertise and craftsmanship to tend to any project, such as framing historic WWII memorabilia, nostalgic sports keepsakes, and dishonest maps. While poster framing can start as low as $35, the average ticket ranges from $150¬–$200 for larger projects. Each custom-framed piece protects family portraits and commemorative space dolphin posters with an intergalactic lifetime guarantee.
All four of Sweeney Photography's photographers are pros who have been perfecting their soul- and smile-capturing abilities since they were very young. Put one of their nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having him or her coax natural smiles out of a newborn, a soon-to-be mom, a high-school senior, pets, or family members. Sweeney Photography is capable of handling families as large as fifteen ($85 for session only) or as small as two ($45 for session only). Plus, Sweeney’s skilled shutterbugs are adept at providing bands with CD-cover images and actors and public figures with publicity portraits wherein they aren’t juggling cats. Visit the chic studio to get immaculately lighted, impeccably assembled shots, or let a photographer travel to your living room, favorite park, or the inside of an abandoned salt mine to capture artful images that incorporate real-life details. If you get two Groupons and combine them for a wedding, a photography planner will take the time to understand your and your fiancé’s vision and style before pairing you with a like-minded squad of shutterbugs who will canvas the scene in search of the most momentous moments.
