Frameworks Gallery and Frame Design, Inc.’s owners, Charles and Carolyn, operate by a simple philosophy: “Frame it once, frame it right, and frame it forever.” For more than 30 years, the custom frame shop and art gallery has matched museum-quality frames with portraits, memorabilia, and portraits of memorabilia, earning repeated recognition from loyal customers and local publications such as Metro Magazine. Customers can peruse a selection of ready-to-hang frames or collaborate with helpful staff members to create a one-of-a-kind picture home, with a variety of framing materials, mats, and glass to choose from. On its walls, the family-operated store proudly displays work by local and regional
artists interspersed with flawless Sunday crossword puzzles completed entirely in ink.
Since 1968, Jerry’s Artarama has assisted artists through every phase of the creative process, including furnishing their studios with art supplies and finishing off their completed artwork with custom-framing services. They stock their shelves with student- and professional-grade supplies, including Winsor & Newton’s high-value Winton line of beginners’ oil colors and Williamsburg handmade paints. The framing department, meanwhile, keeps a wide range of mats, moulding, and glass on hand to create lavish homes for fine artwork or simple enclosures for family photos and important receipts.
Affordable Creative Framer & Art's professional staff protects paintings, photos, and memorabilia against damage with expertly cut mats and elegant molding. The store?s vast selection of frames features designs from Larson-Juhl that range from slim black moldings to baroque patterns of stained wood or gold. All frames are cut to size onsite and can be assembled around artwork within a day to quickly conceal holes caused by impromptu shot-put tournaments in the parlor. A collection of pre-framed d?cor available for purchase includes music posters, photos, and printed canvases.
Frame Warehouse creates professional, custom picture frames that are designed to protect all kinds of artistic creations and memorabilia while complementing their natural charms. Customers can choose from hundreds of ready-made mats and frames that translate into thousands of frame permutations (tabletop frames average $7?$10), or they can opt for a custom design clipped from the crafty corners of their own minds. All framing products are of the highest quality?barrier papers, dust covers, acid-free products, and five kinds of UV-resistant glasses combine to permanently preserve your masterful fingerpainting from fifth grade or your collection of two-dimensional cross-sections sliced out of the world?s skyscrapers. Prices vary widely depending on how the customer navigates the flowchart from frame size to final product, but most jerseys can be framed for less than $200, diplomas for as low as $75, and posters for under $100.
