With more than 1,000 frames, The Framing Corner's designers create custom frames and shadowboxes to preserve all types of artwork and three-dimensional mementos. The experienced staff can make knowledgeable recommendations to customers searching for the best-matched frame or fashioning the single-occupancy residence that will complement the work and the home or office wall it's destined to marry. With a variety of materials, The Framing Corner can frame everything from mirrors and canvases to poster art and photographs, with shadowboxes for proudly displaying treasured three-dimensional objects, such as a pet wolverine’s first bronzed hairball.
FastFrame outlines photographs and wall-worthy art with more than 1,000 frames in styles ranging from baroque gold trims to funky contemporary schemes. Dedicated to craftsmanship and creativity, professional framers help select matting hues that will complement a diploma or the neighborhood Declaration of Independence. All projects are completed onsite, ensuring that no materials get dented or lost by clumsy carrier pigeons, and clients can return any custom designs for complete retooling within 30 days if they don't match their home’s decor.
FastFrame’s skilled framers customize borders for an array of wall-worthy pieces. Selecting from an extensive inventory of materials, they craft frames to showcase original artwork or to endow special photographs with a dignified display. Their carefully curated conservation materials prevent works of art from fading and prevent their subjects from sprouting a 5 o’clock shadow. But the framesmiths don't limit themselves to two dimensions—sports memorabilia, kids’ artwork, and other three-dimensional objects find artistic preservation within shadowboxes. They even transform flat-screen TVs into customized, framed works of art by installing a VisionArt feature, which transmits the still image of a painting, family portrait, or favorite infomercial onto idle screens.
With access to thousands of frame and mat combinations, the staff at The Great Frame Up works to protect and enhance customers' wall adornments. They select frames and mats to accommodate each piece and make them stand out in a room even in the midst of distractions like living wallpaper. Specialty items such as diplomas, personalized jerseys, and dorm-room movie posters can also be mounted, and customers can consult with the specialists to find a home for prized possessions such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up performs each framing job onsite, ensuring that keepsakes won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities. For advice, the website offers tips and trends to help customers choose, arrange, hang, and decorate everything, including the art, frame, mat, and glass.

The certified framing experts at Mom & Pop’s Frame Shop prep keepsakes for presentation while shielding them against wear and tear with a vast array of frames. Conservation-grade mats eschew the high acid content of paper mats to protect precious photos and artwork, and the computerized mat cutter replaces the rough edges and teeth marks of traditional mat cutting to ensure straight, accurate fits. Custom shadow boxes display all manner of physical memorabilia, from a baby's first pair of socks to a grandparent’s pilfered Russian warhead, and multi-opening mats can show off a series of black-and-white family shots. Prices for custom framing vary by material and size; prices for poster framing may start at $95.
