The staff members at Framagraphic approach every project with the same level of care and attention to detail, whether it's an expensive piece from an esteemed gallery or a treasured crayon doodle from a child. It's been that way since the mid-1970s, when the business custom-sculpted its first frame. Ever since, Framagraphic has continually added on to its list of services, which today includes work with shadow boxes, canvases, and even mirrors. At the shop, galleries of prints and original paintings from local artists immerse visitors in color, and an on-site workshop ensures projects will never have to be outsourced to Santa's elves.
