A.I. Freidman's meticulously organized shelves and displays teem with equipment and supplies for artists of almost every medium. Pick your perfect paint wand, such as a set of four Princeton natural-bristle brushes ($2.88–$21.48) and dapple canvases with rich pigments such as Winton oil colors ($3.13–$9), whose blues are bolstered by cadmium and cobalt, and greens are enhanced with kryptonite. A 12-pack of charcoal ($7.49) creates soft lines and shadows, and an X-Acto standard knife chest's three handles and seventeen blades allow precise artistic slices ($29.59). For artists dabbling in the third dimension, a spectrum of polymer clays, such as a 30-color Sculpey sampler ($20.79), molds to any artistic aspiration, such as Technicolor busts of Spiro Agnew. In addition to art supplies, A.I. Freidman offers custom framing, tabletop frames, mementos, home furniture, and more.

The staff at 14th Street Framing Gallery knows that you don't often choose what you cherish—it might be a photo, a sports jersey, or even a series of jewelry pendants. You can, however, choose how to present it. The shop has been matching coveted items to chic displays since 1978, drawing from a library of hundreds of matting and moulding styles. Staffers can preserve common two-dimensional keepsakes such as posters, prints, and paintings as well as specialty 3-D items and fabrics using shadow boxes.

In addition to their custom framing services, staffers repair frames brought from home or resize them to fit new pieces of art. Their attention to detail enables them to cut and rejoin even delicate antique frames that cracked after their portrait subjects outgrew them. For customers who want to arrange their own mementos or peruse home decor, the store supplies scrapbooking materials and prints.

One Hour Framing Shop in New York City’s Midtown has been in the business of professional framing for over thirty years. That means the dedicated team on hand knows a thing or two about the art of framing, whether that means an ornate gold gilt frame custom-fitted for a rare work of oil on canvas, or a box for sports memorabilia and precious family keepsakes. Each order is given equal care and relies only on the finest materials and craftsmanship; everything from prints and paintings to sports jerseys and display items are meticulously fitted and mounted. Along with several other locations across New York, this East 40th Street outpost is small but well-appointed, with hanging sections of dozens of frames to give customers a sense of their potential finished purchase, and – as the name indicates – many jobs can be done in an hour.
