The dedicated framers at Ferrante Picture Framing draw on more than 40 years of experience as they outfit works by Ontario artists James Lumbers, Trisha Romance, and George Upper as well as personal photographs and mementos with frames of all shapes and styles. Wood, metal, and matting accent the edges of posters and paintings in picture sandwiches protected by glass; display cases can commemorate a retired licence plate or a toddler's dinner plate scraped clean of its vegetables. Staffers can also create pop art pieces that transform ordinary photos into masterpieces more Warholian than Marilyn Monroe in a tub of Campbell’s tomato soup.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, picture perfect clients pose in the bright camera room, smiling amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following the photo shoot, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.

Nowadays, Art Source reaches every corner of the globe, distributing art for both retail and wholesale clients as far-flung as Europe, Japan, and New Zealand.
