Custom Framing

Custom Art FramesWith one of the largest and most unique frame moulding selections in St. Louis, we can custom frame about anything you can imagine. From team jerseys and needlepoint to family heirlooms and fine art, the possibilities are endless.

Let our experienced framing designers create or translate your vision, while counseling you on the appropriate level of conservation and archival considerations.

Most often, the discussion begins with pointed questions to assess your aesthetic preferences and the level of protection your art may need (basic, conservation, or museum—quality protection). We will ask about your priorities—protect or make pretty or both—and about your mounting options and preferences so you are aware of—but not overwhelmed by—all of your options.

Then, we make the magic happen. And below are the tools of our magicians.
