Ten Yelpers give the Cambridge location of Big Picture Framing a near-perfect 4.5-star average rating:
- Big Picture Framing was excellent. I brought in six pieces to be framed - two paintings, two prints on rice paper and two ink on paper pieces - and they took care of them all in a little over a week. – Anastasia C.
- Very happy with the experience and all three prints look really stunning on our wall now. They are clearly very knowledgeable and care about their customers so I look forward to using this store again. – Chris H.
Big Picture Framing
Experienced framers Barry Stahl and Bob Clayton built Big Picture Framing from scratch in 2000, holding meetings around an old card table as construction roared around them. Today, framers at 15 area locations craft custom frames to display artwork, photographs, and record sleeves, and shadow boxes protect three-dimensional items such as ballet slippers, macaroni art, or a swarm of wasps. Patrons can dictate all design choices, choosing from metal and wooden frames in a multitude of colors and styles, or ask for recommendations from one of Big Picture Framing's resident experts. Big Picture Framing also stocks pre-framed art, prints, and posters to spruce up bare-walled homes or a drab doghouse.
