There is nothing quite like the style and warmth of handmade wood picture frames for everything from contemporary art to traditional oil paintings. Our wood frames, spanning the simple and sleek to the typical rustic wood picture frames found in traditional homes around Tyler will complement any style. And because we care about the environment, our wood frame moldings are constructed with eco-friendly wood, such as finger-jointed Pulai, laminated New Zealand Pine, Durian Wood, and farmed plantation pine, sourced from manufacturers that practice sustainable harvesting. Our wood frame moldings are assembled with glue and V-nails for strength and longevity. Each corner is hand puttied so no seams are visible, and hand-finished by a skilled craftsperson. A classic choice made by both museums and private collections to display art, handmade wood frames bring a level of sophistication to any décor.
Acrylic is a glass alternative that has gained popularity as a framing material. Acrylic glass is a great option for framing original art pieces because there’s no fear of tears or punctures from broken glass. Larger artwork and photos do especially well with acrylic framing because of the reduced weight risk. Keepsake photos from wedding albums, professional shoots, and special events are also well-paired with acrylic glass as you can opt for UV protection to allow for clarity while reducing the penetration of the sun’s rays. From custom acrylic boxes that do not touch your art, to floating double panel acrylic frames with standoffs, we are happy to offer this new modern framing option.
Our solid finger-jointed wood stretcher bar frames for canvas prints, constructed from eco-friendly plantation pine, are hand glued and nailed by our trained staff. All are pre-squared and are handmade for your canvas. In addition to 60 standard sizes, we can do full custom canvas stretcher frames. If your canvas has been installed on stretcher bars that are too large, we can carefully remove and restretch any canvas.
