The family behind Decor Art Gallery has been crafting custom frames and culling fine artwork since 1987. In addition to swaddling cherished memories with elegant mouldings and mats, the store’s staffers offer printing, stretching, and repair services. When they aren't protecting memories behind panels of conservation glass, they fill the gallery’s expansive windows with distinctive home decor, including portraits of stylized dogs, paintings of impressionistic dancers, and maps of the mythological city of Boston.
The staff at 14th Street Framing Gallery knows that you don't often choose what you cherish—it might be a photo, a sports jersey, or even a series of jewelry pendants. You can, however, choose how to present it. The shop has been matching coveted items to chic displays since 1978, drawing from a library of hundreds of matting and moulding styles. Staffers can preserve common two-dimensional keepsakes such as posters, prints, and paintings as well as specialty 3-D items and fabrics using shadow boxes.
In addition to their custom framing services, staffers repair frames brought from home or resize them to fit new pieces of art. Their attention to detail enables them to cut and rejoin even delicate antique frames that cracked after their portrait subjects outgrew them. For customers who want to arrange their own mementos or peruse home decor, the store supplies scrapbooking materials and prints.
For more than 20 years, the artisans at Westside Frame Shop have been framing photos, artwork, and heirlooms with archival materials and conservation techniques.

The framers can also stretch needlework for display and craft custom mirrors for outsmarting Medusa.
