A man enters a framing shop with a colossal photo depicting tiers of gleaming automobiles. After a brief search through a multitude of framing samples, the man comes to a decision. He wants his frame covered in blinking LED lights. Accepting the challenge, Picture Framing Warehouse and Art Gallery’s owner, Karl Can, along with his brothers and son Ali, get to work on making the client's vision a reality. Since 1993, the warehouse's certified framers have fulfilled a variety of custom-framing orders, encasing items ranging from paintings to tubas to 7-foot-tall mirrors. Picture Framing Warehouse and Art Gallery's 6,000-square-foot facility stays loaded with frames made by brand-name companies including Larson-Juhl, Omega Moulding, and Engelsen, available in more than 2,000 colors. Since some orders can be completed the same day they're placed, customers can wait for their completed project while browsing the colorful paintings and artfully framed frames lining the walls of the warehouse's dedicated art gallery.
The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
Since 1968, Jerry’s Artarama has stocked shelves with multitudes of tools and supplies and helped artists show off finished work with custom framing. The comprehensive inventory fulfills artists’ every need, featuring everything from acid-free blank stretched canvases to Lukas oil colors, which have been transmitting images to paper since 1862. Custom framing services can protect and showcase a diploma, favorite 8”x10,” or beloved box of cereal.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100), personalized jerseys glisten (most for under $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24x36 pieces are under $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
