At Framers Edge, a staff of artists and skilled craftspeople preserves anything from precious family portraits to sports memorabilia to the wettest of oil paintings. They first conduct a complimentary consultation, advising clients on the best border for their belongings and detailing the step-by-step process. Once a method is agreed upon, they get to work: blocking and stretching needlepoint pieces, adding beveled accents to finished artwork, and mounting 3-D objects such as baseball jerseys and a baby’s first clump of shower hair. They use the best equipment in the industry and materials from high-quality suppliers, including Bainbridge mats and Bella and Studio moulding.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Before the archivists of Art and Framing Gallery begin a project, they slip on pairs of cotton gloves. By sheathing their hands, they guard against fingerprints and finger-paints. Their dedication to museum-quality workmanship shines through each project, whether it's a same-day framing job or a standard three- to seven-day order.
In Art and Framing Gallery's showrooms, walls display more than 3,000 frame samples and acre upon acre of mats. Ready-made framed mirrors and artwork also share this space, which connects to in-house workshops. Here, craftsmen cut custom glass and piece together each project. They skillfully preserve artwork and portraits and excel with projects that require special care. They encase delicate antiques in UV-protective glass and display sports jerseys in cases that ward off wrinkling and grass stains.
The owner of The Frame Studio, Nanci Jaye, draws on more than two decades of experience in the art world as she fits ornate borders onto paintings, photography, keepsakes, and found objects.

The Frame Studio also has one of the largest collections of mats and frame samples in the South Shore area, and Nanci provides one-on-one consultations to help clients put together unique works of art for their homes.
As the owner of Harvard Art & Frame, Tony Tisei carries on what the original owners started in 1938. He's been manning the old Boston shop for the past four decades, overseeing the staff as it crafts custom frames using acid-free materials. After the artisans help clients select mattes and frames from hundreds of options, including products from Omega Moulding, they encase pieces ranging from maps, prints, and paintings to antique 3-D objects. They also restore old photographs so you can always look fondly upon the scowling face of Great-Grandpa Earl.
