The Art Shop can consult with you on your framing needs via e-mail or they can visit your home or office to see first-hand your particular framing situation. By viewing the area where the art will displayed, they can determine the proper frame, frame size and frame material to bring out the best in your artwork. Once they consult with you, they begin creating the custom art framing on site. All work is done in The Art Shop, ensuring that each element is perfectly fitted to the others.

State of the Art Framing Center

Inside The Art Shop is a state-of-the-art framing center that offers customers literally hundreds of frame options including color, material, beveling and design, etc. The staff will help direct you to the best options for the type of item you wish to frame, be it a painting, photograph, special documents or other family artifacts and heirlooms.

Because the framers at The Art Shop are certified by the Professional Picture Framers Association, they are knowledgeable in the important details of framing such as the problem of using unprocessed wood pulp for matting (it contains acid which can burn the artwork), conservation mounting (which allows the artwork to float on top of the matting) and the right glass to display your work (including UV protective glass). By offering you these options and expertise, The Art Shop can ensure that your artwork gets the display it deserves.

The experts at The Art Shop are ready to address your framing needs and show you the best options available. Whether you bring your art into our shop, allow us to consult with you at your home or office, or via e-mail, The Art Shop has the experience and professionalism to make your artwork look even more beautiful.
