Custom framing questions

Do you need to have a picture framed?

We know the idea of going to a custom picture frame shop can be a little unsettling. Questions you might have are:

How much will this cost?

Do I have to know what I want?

What if I don’t know anything about art or colors?

The only thing you need to know before walking into the shop with your art is where it might hang and your budget for the project.

Either way, that is just a starting point. We will ask a few more questions, try some combinations and give you some different pricing so you can make a decision. The process is not long or hard, usually taking about 10-20 minutes.

Beware: many folks who give it a try find that it is a lot of fun! Having one picture framed can start a person thinking of other things they would like to have framed or even re-framed to update their space.
