I just brought in some old family photos to be framed as a 70th birthday gift for my mom. Andy (the owner) was wonderfully helpful! There are so many choices in terms of mat colors and frames, it was hard for me to make a decision. He was great at talking through the options and making recommendations (while still listening to my taste and preferences). Andy's a graphic designer (and experienced framer), so he was also helpful in picking out a font for wording that's being included in the piece. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant about going to a big, national chain...but this store is locally-owned by Andy and his wife, while still having the benefits of the support of an experienced parent company. I can't wait to give the finished gift to my mom - it looks fantastic and was affordable!
this has to be one of the most unique picture frame shops i have ever come across. just the visit alone is worth it. it is on the very trendy bennett street and the prices here are very reasonable and the quality of work i received is without question the best i have ever seen. the frame samples here are amazing and you only work with the owner gary horton who has a keen eye for design. i found out about this place because there is a special event the 1st thursday of every month where all the art galleries are open in the evening with food and drink and this picture framer doubles as an art gallery with interesting art at again very reasonable prices. try www.bennettstreet.com or www.onbennettstreet.com
We took several paintings in a series to get them framed. The frames were nice but the mat work did not seem like it was professionally done. In addition the cost was high considering the overall quality of the work. It also took a long time to get the work finished.
