FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
These days, everyone's a photographer. In fact, that's one of the main inspirations Polaroid had when unveiling their Fotobars. With people taking billions of digital photos every year, the trusted photography company came up with a new way to make them last: turning them into classic Polaroid pictures. Each Fotobar location gives you access to printers that develop pictures from social media apps, your phone, or other devices with the iconic white Polaroid border. But that's not the extent of what can be created at a Fotobar. Pictures can also be enlarged, custom-framed, mounted, or printed onto bamboo and shipped straight to your home. Each design is sleek and professional, exuding the clean Polaroid aesthetic on products that you never have to shake unless you're using them to mix cocktails in a pinch.
