How many years of experience does Studio Seven Arts have with picture framing?
Our professional picture framers have over 25 years of experience in custom framing.
Why do I need a frame?
Frames preserve artwork and prevent deterioration that occurs over time from factors such as environment (temperature and humidity), movement, and storage. Frames also enhance artwork allowing you to coordinate your personal taste with the personality of the piece.
What can I frame?
The sky is the limit - if you find it, we can frame it.
Here are just a few examples:
- Original Artwork - Posters - Sports Jerseys
- Artifacts - Maps - Historic Documents
- Vacation Displays - Diplomas - Certificates
- Maps - Needle Art - Graduation Pictures
- Family Portraits - Awards - Military Decorations
- Photos - Prints - Memorabilia Displays
- Mirrors - Blueprints - Architectural Plans
What if I have already have a picture and want it reframed?
Not a problem. If it was not completed correctly the first time or looking for some change, we will help you find the perfect combination and deliver on it.
Do you cater to bulk orders?
Yes. Whether it is one piece or one hundred pieces, framed the same or in one hundred different ways, we will fill the order. Moldings, matting, and supporting materials are always in stock so we can cater to any size frame order.
Do you perform conservation framing?
Absolutely. All of our framing materials are acid-free to ensure long-term preservation of your artwork.
How long does it take to get my finished piece?
Typical turnaround time is about two weeks. If you need your piece sooner, we will make other arrangements to have it to you when you need it.
