  • Framed
    Framed, which was named runner-up for Best Frame Shop in 2010 by readers of the New Haven Advocate, uses careful custom-framing techniques to produce well-balanced rectangles for all occasions. Overseen by 15-year framing veterans Liz Hellwig and Rocco Compitello, the staff at Framed meets with prospective project doers, ironing out the two-dimensional details for projects large and small. These canvas wranglers practice conservation framing, a technique that keeps pieces true to their original condition through the use of specialized glass and acid-free mat boards. Likewise, to ensure quality and a pleasant lack of presidential apparitions, all custom projects are constructed on-site, in the store's comprehensive workshop. Though framing rates vary from project to project, an average 18"x24" piece?including black wood frame, standard glass, and dry mounting?starts at approximately $66.

  • Center Framing & Art
    Art Center Supply Store's two classically trained master framers have 25 years of experience in matting, mounting, and encasing treasures. Acid-free, museum-quality conservation matting and framing preserves prints of baby's first whitewater rafting trip while inhibiting future wear and tear. Framing prices vary widely based on object and size, running from $3.95 per foot to $60 per foot for handmade Italian framing materials. Art Center?s border buffs also perform dry mounting, a technique reserved for water-sensitive prints in which heat bonds the artwork and mounting board together, similar to when a flock of rubber ducks fly too close to the sun.

  • Jerry's Artarama Providence
    Since 1968, Jerry’s Artarama has stocked shelves with multitudes of tools and supplies and helped artists show off finished work with custom framing. The comprehensive inventory fulfills artists’ every need, featuring everything from acid-free blank stretched canvases to Lukas oil colors, which have been transmitting images to paper since 1862. Although prices vary depending on matting and glass choices, a custom frame can protect and showcase a diploma, favorite 8”x10,” or beloved box of cereal.
