Services include surface cleaning of art, repair of rips or tears in art, paint loss repair, water damage restoration, to mention a few.

Do you have an old photo that needs restoration? We can help you to restore the original tones and colors of your family’s forgotten treasures.

A snapshot of your grand-parents or the marriage certificate of your parents can become a family heirloom that can be preserved and displayed for generations to come.

FAQ

Our turnaround time on most framing projects is currently about 3 weeks. This allows us time to order the frame and other necessary materials, and skillfully fit and finish your piece. If time is short, we can usually accommodate rush orders and will do our best to help you meet your deadline. Please note that there is an additional fee for this service. We also carry a select number of “inhouse mouldings” to choose from for quick turnaround projects and a selection of ready to go frames in a variety of colors and sizes for even faster solutions.

All of our work is done on-site and remains entirely in our care during the framing process. We are do carry special “customer art” insurance with our insurance carrier above and beyond the normal amount of insurance required. If your artwork is especially valuable, we encourage you to consult with your insurance company and have it insured while it is on our premises.
The prices at The Frame & Print Shop are very competitive. You can trust that our everyday prices are as low as others who offer frequent 50% off sales. A wide variety of factor determine the overall cost, such as size, frame selection, type of glass and matting, mounting and other factors. Frame mouldings vary widely depending on the style, type of wood and manufacturer, so we carry hundreds of frame samples to fit any budget and style. With so many factors involved in determining a quote, we encourage you contact us online or by phone to help you find what you need.
If your piece needs a fresh look, we can cut a custom mat to fit or even replace the glass to fit your existing frame. We can even help you reuse an old frame and swap out old artwork for new to create a fresh look for less.

Appointments are encouraged but not required. Generally, we encourage an appointment if you would like to be socially distanced from others and/or if you have multiple or large items that you would like to have framed.
