Hello! I’m Carla and I work at Wyman Frame, a division of Dale Rogers Training Center (DRTC). I have been a Certified Picture Framer since 1983 and have framed for DRTC for two years.

We offer two basic types of framing: Fast Frames where you begin your framing experience based on price or Custom Framing where you begin your framing experience based on best final framing outcomes.

Having something custom framed can seem intimidating but it really is not. There are a few things to have in mind when arriving at the showroom studio that will make the process go smoother. Relax. It will be fun.

  • Give your framer a little information about the item to be framed. Ask questions.
  • Be open to ideas but don’t be afraid to let your framer know what you do or don’t like.
  • Entertain new ideas that maybe you wouldn’t have thought of.
  • Pick something you will enjoy living with daily and for a long time.
  • Relax and have fun. Be creative!

Shop for a Cause!  When you purchase from Wyman Frame you are also providing people with disabilities work opportunities; it’s a win-win for all!
