If you’re gonna go custom, go all out!

We know that when you come to us, you’re not choosing the budget option. It’s always going to be cheaper to go buy a pre-made frame at a big box store and put a picture in it. But we really feel like we offer a good exchange for the money. We custom make our frames, just to size. We custom cut the matting, and hand mount the pieces. We use high-quality protective glass and archive-grade products to create a truly superior end product. An end product that will decorate your walls for decades and be able to be passed down for generations. Truly an amazing thing for us to get to be involved in.

But given the above, you know I love? When we get to go all out! Obviously we can mount things and preserve them and look great doing it, but we cal also make truly unique art! When you’re making the investment to preserve something precious for future generations, make the investment to make it look great! Take this flower for example. There’s a beautiful story behind it about a man in love, but what matters for this example is that we just got a flower. It was old and needed to be preserved. We could have done so simply and plainly, but instead we got the chance to take some artistic license and create something unique and powerful.

From the depth and intricacy of the frame to the multiple layers, colors and textures in the matting and to the stylistic choice that we made with the layout and layering, it all came together into a beautiful finished product that will look great and the owners will be proud to display for years to come. Let us do the same for you.

This was our first experience with a custom framing shop and the quality is just unbelievable. And being able to look at and tweak every detail was awesome. Thanks again, Jody." -Missy L
