What People are Saying
“Beyond Expectations ”
“Jill is the absolute best to work with. My fiancé and I recently bought a condo and had an idea of hanging some of our favorite things on our main wall. We needed to get everything framed and figure out a layout for the wall. Jill suggested awesome frames and borders to start with. The turnaround time was beyond expected. She set up a hanging appointment with Don on a Sunday. He was fantastic. We loved talking to him and we’re amazed at how quickly he was able to hang everything. He made sure everything was level before leaving.
We could not be happier with our experience and will be back for more framing!!”
“I brought in two pieces, an old map, and my diploma. I was on a budget and the staff member was very understanding and friendly.
I couldn’t decide on what color to choose as the background color for my diploma and I finally settled on gold and black after trying 5 different colors. She was amazing with her suggestions and very patient with me… which takes a lot of patience! They also have a great glass selection, my map is gold and it would reflect a lot of light, the glass it had on the frame did not help. She suggested the museum glass, it has worked amazingly great even after almost a year with no cleaning (I’m a lazy person). Prices are amazing for the quality, I’ve been to more expensive places that provide the same quality of frames but lack great customer service. I will be back to frame my Master’s diploma!”
“Superb Customer Service”
