Since 1984, the knowledgeable staff at Tallahassee Photo has been helping customers take, display, and transform their photos, videos, and artwork. The shop's stock of photo equipment and supplies includes cameras and lenses from Sony and Canon, as well as Fujifilm film, Tamrac camera bags, and other accessories. Once photographers have snapped their shots, they can head to the website for online photo-printing services, or they can order photo books, greeting cards, and photo gifts.
The professional framers stock more than 200 frames for custom jobs. They can also inlay their work with custom-cut mats, including those with multiple openings to display shots of everyone in a family or show off a progression of a cat's Christmas sweaters over the years. They're also able to create frame-free canvas and gallery wraps.
For moving pictures, Tallahassee Photo’s staff offers video-transfer services. They use the same equipment employed by the Library of Congress and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to handle 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm films. They can also transfer formats such as VHS and Betamax onto DVDs or transfer old audio formats (such as LP records) onto CDs.
Creating A Scene's owner, Alaina Walker, works with clients to enliven indoor and outdoor spaces with custom displays of silk and live plants. The company's consultants arrange foliage and flowers into elegant centerpieces for weddings or other special events, and they can even supply plant party favors that guests can take home with them or devour on the ride home. The retail showroom mimics that of any other florist shop, save for the sheer variety of its inventory, which includes unique specimens such as pineapple plants. The company's healthy-plant guarantee ensures the longevity of purchases, and its plant-maintenance service sees the crew making regular return trips to local businesses to fertilize, water, trim, and polish rented plants and replace any that have wilted. Creating A Scene also donates funds through its Pick A Plant program, which awards 30% of each eligible purchase to a nonprofit of the customer's choice.
At Tallahassee Italian Family Festa, held each year since 2010, Italian and Italian-American culture is celebrated in all of its forms. Bocce tournaments, a Madonnari sidewalk-chalk art competition, and a silent auction are just a few attractions, and spectators can fuel up with gelato, meatball sandwiches, and Italian beer and wine. Italian cars and motorcycles gleam in an exhibition, showing off their sleek surfaces and revving their motors with an Italian trill. There's also a children's area where kids can participate in face painting, a grape stomp, and other activities.
Proceeds from the festival benefit Florida State University's international travel programs and CIAO! Italian Club Tallahassee.
Expert hands, marked by the evidence of careful labor, bring together frames with gilded baroque flourishes or sleek contemporary lines to shelter photos, paintings, mirrors, and cross-stitch samplers at Frames +. Computerized onsite mat cutting makes pieces seem to leap from the wall with color-complementing depth, drawing out the greens of a mountainscape or adding to the crayon signature on a fake diploma. Jerseys and souvenirs nestle in shadow boxes, and antique photos stay safe with conservation framing that preserves the visages of ancestors who traveled to America on the Mayflower or the barnacled back of a generous whale.:
For more than 30 years, the staff at The Frame Shoppe has transformed photos, paintings, and jerseys into elegant keepsakes with complementary matting, nonglare or UV–protective glass, and frames. The professionals help clients to choose the perfect style of edging from dozens of options, pairing modern, sleek metals with diplomas and rustic barnwood molding with paintings by pet cows. After deciding between funky or elegant, sparse or baroque, clients browse matting selections that include suede and textured options. Although complete custom-framing projects generally have a 10-day turnaround, a computerized Wizard Mat Cutter enables the framers to cut edgings into shape while customers wait.
The framing masters at Picture Frames Unlimited LLC don’t frame art; they frame memories. They specialize in memorializing artwork and niche articles such as stitchery, antique clothing, and memorabilia. Owners Mary and Karen wield materials such as frames, matting, and premium glass for projects, resulting in presentations that combine quality, creativity, and custom attention to each piece.
