The staff at Alltmont's Fine Custom Framing works with clients to devise unique combinations of frames and archival materials to protect photos, paintings, portraits, and memorabilia. Under the direction of expert framer Jeff Alltmont, Alltmont's Fine Custom Framing encloses wall hangings of all types in elegant, expertly crafted edgings. Within a large, bright workshop and retail space, customers peruse thousands of frame samples that adorn the walls in a single-file parade of right angles, displaying all available custom-frame colors, styles, and sizes. The friendly craftspersons at Alltmont's Fine Custom Framing obligingly advise customers in the process of designing the frame that gives their picture the snazziest hug, including custom mirrors, cork, and chalkboards. Each piece of Alltmont's handiwork is specially fitted to the specific treasure it houses, whether priceless works of art, pride-inducing diplomas and awards, or prized Vincent van Gogh Super Bowl jerseys.
Kyle Dairgreport, the owner of Framed by Kyle, has been building frames for more than 30 years. He draws on those decades of experience to deftly display and protect paintings, photographs, or important documents behind glass. To extend pieces' longevity, he can suit them up in acid-free matting, which prevents discoloration, and UV-deflecting glass, which guards photographed faces from suffering a sunburn. Kyle helps customers place custom orders without leaving their homes. He makes house calls with a book of frame and mat samples in tow, and then delivers the client-designed frames when they're finished.
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.
The professionals at Pineapple Gallery specialize in conservation framing and only use acid-free materials when framing prized family photos and valuable artwork. For added protection, the framers finish jobs with museum-quality glass. Patrons also can look for new wall decorations in Pineapple Gallery’s collection of paintings and prints from various artists.
