What is the importance of working with a Certified Picture Framer?
A CPF, Certified Picture Framer, gives the frame its mark of excellence.  CPF’s must pass a rigorous exam that demonstrates their expertise, techniques, and knowledge of conservation-framing requirements.

CPF’s understand how to best preserve artwork, by never framing it in an irrevocable way; they are careful to frame without causing any change or harm to the artwork. 

A CPF framer can explain the pros and cons of different framing techniques, and how each method protects your artwork. A CPF framer can be trusted to keep your artwork safe.

How long does it typically take for my project to be completed?
The average complete custom framing project takes three weeks for completion. However, we stock a selection of materials that can accommodate a quicker turn around, while our ready-made selection can be taken with you.
Do you ship finished projects?
We do not offer shipping services, but we can wrap your completed framing projects for self-transport.
What credit cards or forms of payment do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards, Visa, MasterCard, Amex and Discover, along with check or cash.
Can you fix my broken picture?

Frame repairs must be looked at to determine if they are candidates for repair.  We can repair damaged frames on a case-by-case basis. 

Matting that is out of style, old, damaged, or faded can be replaced. 

Broken glass can be replaced or upgraded for better protection. 

To repair slipped wrinkled, or unmounted artwork, our framers can employ different mounting, prevention, or non-preservation techniques.

How much will my project cost?

The cost of custom picture framing varies greatly depending on the medium and size of the artwork, the level of preservation needed, and the materials and framing style selected. 

In addition to an extensive selection of custom-ordered materials, we stock an assortment of value options that are more cost effective for your budget minded projects.  

Along with our custom framing services, we also offer hand-crafted custom quality frames in standard sizes.

Where are the frames made?
Picture framing moulding is made all over the world. The Frame Shop uses materials you selected; they are sent to our store where we cut, join, and assemble everything used to frame your artwork.  No artwork leaves the premises, and it is stored safely here throughout the framing process.
What printing services do you offer?
Large format printing is available at The Frame Shop. We can scan, edit, enlarge, and print your photos and artwork on paper, canvas, or photographic papers. We make fine art prints, custom posters, photo enlargements, and business presentations from your digital files.

The Frame Shop is open Tuesday through Friday 10:00am – 6:00pm, Saturday 10:00am – 5:00pm, closed on Sunday & Monday.  Appointments are not required, but we can schedule consultations to accommodate your need. Selecting framing materials can be time consuming, so be sure to allow an ample amount of time.
Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes, we sell gift certificates.  Gift Certificates make the perfect gift for graduations, weddings, birth of a child, anniversaries, or birthdays.  The recipient can choose framing materials that enhance their art while complimenting their individual style.
