Professional Custom Framing
Unfortunately due to high demand, longer turnaround times and back orders due to the holidays, I can no longer take custom framing orders and be able to have them delivered by Christmas.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
HOW TO ORDER
- choose your portrait size
- select your frame color
- matting or no matting
Our frames are the highest quality, produced by manufacturers here in the U.S.A. If you know frames, then you’ll recognize Larson Juhl and Studio, as they are the industry leaders. We would not settle for anything less and neither should you. Both companies also pride themselves on responsibly sourced materials.
Gallery Black: Our popular frame in matte black. A timeless choice. Our classic Gallery Frame feels at home in any room.
Gallery White: Our most popular style. It's clean, bright, and always a classic. Matte white make brightly colored pieces stand out in a new way.
The mats we use are completely archival: 4-ply, acid-free and containing a white core. This means they don't come cheap, but that’s not all you pay for when you add a mat. When you add a mat you are making your entire piece larger, up to the next size. This will make your walls happier, but it also means we use more frame moulding, more acrylic, more packaging, and more of every other material in your custom frame.
Our frame designers will choose the shade of white to best enhance your piece, with 3” matting around your image. We then bevel-cut each corner with precision. We only offer shades of white ranging from bright white to the creamiest cream. Because choosing these non-colors is super hard online, we provide this service for you.
WE DO NOT OFFER COLORED MATS: Colored mats not only limit where you will be able to display your piece but they can also be distracting, while a white or cream mat isolates the image from the frame, creating a space for you to experience the image alone. We didn't come up with this concept, it has become the standard in the art world.
While dry mounting is irreversible, it is a safe and reliable way to ensure your piece does not appear rippled inside the frame over time. Additionally, we have found that in many cases dry-mounting can alleviate creasing on paper. As a reminder, we are using archival, acid-free foam board so you can rest assured your piece will not get discolored over time.
We use UV-filtering acrylic for all frames. UV-filtering acrylic is the best option and has become the industry standard. Chances are you will be moving, and acrylic is lighter, scratch-resistant, and shatter-resistant. It also provides more UV protection and less glare than glass. While a bit more expensive than glass, the quality and protection acrylic offers is so good, most art sellers and galleries are using it—and so should you.

Your artwork will come with the appropriate hardware already attached, so it will be ready to hang as soon as you get it.
