Entering one of The Framing Establishment's locations is like walking into an art gallery. Large traditional landscapes and contemporary abstracts hang on the walls, and shadow boxes housing portraits and collectibles line the shelves. Amid this modern decor, professional framers scuttle about, sizing objects and answering customers' questions. They help their patrons pick out ready-made frames and art or consult with them to determine flattering custom mouldings and mats for their photos or most impressive parking tickets. They also help customers transform their TVs into works of art by providing frames and fabrics that complement home furnishings.
Don Polo Photography owner Adilfa Ford named her business after the grandfather who raised her on a rustic farm in La Luz, Venezuela. The only surviving pictures of her late mother and grandparents were taken by Adilfa herself as she honed her shutter skills and nurtured the seeds of photographic passion into a blossoming love of the visual arts. Accompanied by her husband, Russ Ford, Adilfa travels the globe to teach photography seminars and add to an impressive resume of more than 800 weddings, returning to her Taylorsville studio to snap more portraits of familial love and newlywed bliss. An ample amount of studio and garden space accommodates small and large portrait groups as they have their contagious smiles immortalized, posing in front of vibrant backgrounds or flourishing greenery. After the team of professional flash dispatchers finishes capturing precious moments, they digitally enhance, retouch, and spellcheck each picture's 1,000 words.
With photo-developing services, custom framing, and more, Pixels is the one-stop shop for photography fanatics and amateur picture makers. Employing the latest Epson Professional equipment to turn out high-quality prints, the store’s in-house developers digitally remove photo-bombing ghosts and turn around most big jobs in one or two days. Epson's UltraChrome K3 ink technology prevents the vivid colors of smiling faces and birthday-candle blowouts from fading over time. This snap-happy crew accepts digital formats, preferably JPEG or TIFF files, for converting images into paper-bound memories. The mantle-perfect photo comes printed on professional-grade metallic photo paper, adding a glossy finish and depth to portraits, candids, or scanned notes from secret admirers.

The skilled archivists at MAD Technologies accept old media and document formats via mail or in-store drop off, giving families and organizations a hassle-free means of preserving cherished content that happens to live on obsolete formats. Elderly books become digitized epics, and grainy home movies recorded onto Beta or 8mm film are reborn in pixels, all with customization options and lightning-quick turnaround. While digital material should last longer than its analog predecessors, MAD Technologies' staff plays it safe–technicians automatically archive and store all images and video, in the event that discs should be damaged or run away from home in their rebellious teenage years.
For about three decades, the professional framers at Art and Frame Station have been hanging rectangles around everything from photographs and artwork to collectibles and memorabilia. The shop?s brick walls hold thousands of mouldings and acid-free mattings, many of which are available in multiple colors, sizes, and candy coatings. The owners perform all framing services onsite to ensure the tight seal and alignment meet the surgical standards of each client.
