With locations in four states and 12 cities, Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing is a trusted name in framing and art-supply supplying. Tote your favorite painting, hard-earned diploma, or most artfully food-stained napkin to the downtown Nashville location to consult with a skilled staff member about devising a customized display. Using his or her expert eyes and minimal blinking, your framer will first help you select a mat to surround your art, then explain the merits of clear glass versus non-glare glass. Though prices vary, photographs can usually find homes in 8"x10" custom-made wood frames with acid-free matting for $50, while diploma-sized keepsakes can be encased behind UV-coated conservation glass for around $110.
