 Your piece will shine!

Custom framing allows you to create a one-of-a-kind presentation for your artwork, print or collectible. There's not just one way to frame something and different methods change the look and feel of it. Together we'll find the perfect solution based on your style, budget and most importantly the design of the item itself. Special care is given to every item being framed and high quality materials are used for long-lasting preservation.

Pricing varies depending on the size, design, materials and method of framing. Please bring in your work for the most accurate quote. Walk-ins are welcome or call to make an appointment. Turn-around time for custom framing is generally 2-3 weeks.

*The shop is located upstairs. Please call ahead if you need assistance in carrying work upstairs–we are more than happy to help!
