Brought in three prints that were fractionally different sizes from one another, and asked that they be custom matted into identically-sized matching frames to minimize the difference between the print sizes. Framemakers knocked it out of the park. Could not be happier with the job they did. All three look fantastic. Excellent customer service from consultation to finishing. Highly recommended!

I had brought in an old poster that I had acquired years ago while traveling with the hopes of hanging it, that time is now. The poster though not creased it wasn't smooth either. Brian worked with me pulling together the right combination of materials and colors that would make my poster pop. It came out amazing! The poster is perfectly smooth and the frame makes it pop. It was so beautiful that if I didn't already own it I would have bought it. If you are looking for someone who is an artist with frames I heartily recommend The Framemakers!

These employees are the best in quality of care, professional services and personable. They ask qualifying questions, offer solutions for this newbie, even checking the range of enlargements for optimal resolution from the shots I took with my camera on my phone. What a gem of a find!
