Preservation

Archival materials, handcrafted frames, and conservation glazing help us preserve the art entrusted to our care. Our talented staff imagine unique designs for all sorts of framing; heirloom portraits, priceless original art, memorabilia shadowboxes, needleworks and textiles, photographs old and new... Inspire us with your challenges.
This composite of Rhonda's Hungarian grandmother includes objects like the brooch, which really personalizes this collection of family photos.

Shadowboxes

Rescue those keepsakes and photos from your attic or closet and enjoy them every day. Safely mounted in a shadowbox, they connect you to loved ones and cherished memories each time you see them.
This grandmother's shadowbox features multiple levels to show off the thimbles, jewelry, and cotton boll that were important in her life. Our new Wizard mat cutter allowed for a playful combination of cattywampus oval and rectangle openings.

Mirrors

The mirror is a room’s crowning touch. We design the frame to integrate all aspects of the room so it perfectly suits the space.

Photo Frames

Shop outside the (big) box and rediscover attentive service that is rare in the digital age. We cheerfully provide acid-free backings, convenient upgrades and install your photo while you wait. Peruse our uncommon photo frame selection in a relaxed and congenial atmosphere.

Handcrafted Frames

Artisans create handcrafted frames starting with raw moulding and, step by step, build beautiful heirloom frames to subtly enhance your work of art.

Frames by Edward Wright

We proudly feature the area's largest selection of handcrafted Frames By Edward Wright. Those "One of a Kind, One at a Time" frames are created in their Hillsborough workshop starting with raw moulding and ending with carefully handcrafted finishes designed to perfectly enhance the art they will surround.

Textiles

Fiber art pieces are most often stitched by hand to archival backgrounds. We have developed clever mounting techniques tailored to suit challenging pieces. Our designs preserve the original nature of each piece and protect its color and integrity into the future.

Gatorfoam Mounting

Joseph Keasler carefully dry mounts many types of art to Gatorfoam® and seals them with Print Guard™ to create a durable, convenient, and economical way to enjoy posters, news clippings, reproductions, children's drawings, and jigsaw puzzles. The result is light-weight and resists warping - with or without a frame.

Plan Your Visit

  • Measure your space – take pictures.
  • Bring samples – fabric, paint, and fixtures.
  • Collections of family photos and objects – we excel in creating arrangements from these.
Our customers are enthusiastic about how much their framing delights them every day. We enjoy helping you come to that Aha! moment when your artwork becomes that perfectly framed fit for your space.
