Top Rated Frame Shop In Tyler, Texas

Love these girls and this gallery. Beau­ti­ful art and cre­ative framing. 
Beautiful 
Tra­cy was so kind & help­ful! The frame & glass on my old pic­ture broke in a move. I was on a bud­get, so I want­ed to leave the old mat­ting and just get a new frame and glass. I also want­ed the frame to match my plan­ta­tion blinds. These pho­tos do not do jus­tice to how great it actu­al­ly turned out. In per­son it is much more fab­u­lous & takes me right to a serene beach­front when I look at it!I high­ly rec­om­mend Gold Leaf Gallery for all your fram­ing needs. Shop local­ly owned and oper­at­ed when possible! 
They repaired a fam­i­ly pic­ture that had been dam­aged in a move. They replaced the bub­ble glass that had been bro­ken and repaired 2 cracks in the pho­to. They did a excel­lent job and it went way above my expec­tions. I will def­i­nite­ly bring the oth­er pho­tos in when pos­si­ble. They also replaced the back­ing on the back of the pho­to. Total pro­fes­sion­al job. Could not be more pleased. Rec­om­mend them as a top­notch busi­ness for ur needs. 
The BEST frame shop in East Texas! 
Traci did a fan­tas­tic job help­ing me with a pic­ture frame for my Sam­sung “the frame” TV. It real­ly does look like a piece of art! High­ly rec­om­mend Gold Leaf! 
To my review read­ers, please know that each and every review for my busi­ness here is authen­tic and gen­uine over the past decade since google began tak­ing reviews. Each review­er has either been a real cus­tomer or an actu­al patron who has vis­it­ed the gallery in per­son. Gold Leaf Gallery is cel­e­brat­ing 50 years of excep­tion­al cus­tom fram­ing busi­ness in Tyler and East Texas! We do not use a review com­pa­ny to post fake reviews; instead, we enjoy the hon­esty and integri­ty of our cus­tomers present and future. 
I have had sev­er­al pieces framed here and have loved every piece they framed! They do beau­ti­ful work. 
What are some of the most car­ing, pro­fes­sion­al and tal­ent dri­ven words you can think of? That would not be enough to describe Tra­cy, Deb­bie and Gold Leaf Gallery. They are tru­ly the best in the indus­try (and I don’t mean just Tyler).If you want some­one to trust with your price­less paint­ings, pho­tographs and real­ly-any­thing, you can trust these things with them.If you can dream of it framed-they can make your dreams come true! ❤️ Per­fec­tion all the way. 
They were so help­ful! I had no idea what I was doing when I walked in and they were so kind and patient with me. 
Gold Leaf Gallery did an excep­tion­al job on fram­ing my paint­ing. I would high­ly rec­om­mend them and will use them in the future. They are very pro­fes­sion­al and friend­ly in help­ing you cre­ate the per­fect pre­sen­ta­tion for your artwork. 
Gold Leaf Gallery has a very artist friend­ly atmos­phere! They car­ry diverse work and have framed sev­er­al projects for me that need­ed a spe­cial touch. Con­tem­po­rary or tra­di­tion­al- they can help with your fram­ing or pur­chase of a piece of art! 
Gold leaf is the most under­rat­ed Art Deal­ing, Art Fram­ing and Art Restora­tion busi­ness in EAST TEXAS.I’ve per­son­al­ly used the incred­i­ble team at Gold Leaf on more than sev­er­al occa­sions, they have absolute­ly exceed­ed expec­ta­tions every time.I still can’t fath­om why peo­ple would go to Dal­las or even far­ther when their is Top Tier tal­ent, Pro­fes­sion­al Crafts­man­ship, Knowl­edge­able, Gen­uine Own­ers and Remark­able Results. Their com­mit­ment to Qual­i­ty and match­ing your vision with their knowl­edge leads to Per­fec­tion, well as close as you can get to it every time.I’ve even tak­en a very expen­sive paint­ing that was dam­aged to them and with­in two months, had a gor­geous, per­son­al­ly in my opin­ion bet­ter than before restored and repaired painting.I can’t share any­more good about Gold Leaf in this post for fear of it seem­ing to good to be true… well… it isn’t.Go see for your­self and let the results and your delight speak for itself.Highly Recommend. 
Very impres­sive selec­tion of var­i­ous types of art­work and a broad selec­tion of frames to choose from. These women are fantastic. 
Enjoyed this art gallery. There is a wide range to choose from and the own­er was very helpful. 
These turned out amaz­ing! Tra­cy is always help­ful and takes care of you. If you go some­where else to have fram­ing done in Tyler, Tx, you’re mak­ing a mistake!!!! 
Help­ful. Won­der­ful ser­vice and selec­tion of product 
This is where I take all my pho­tos and art­work to get framed. Traci has such a good eye for col­or and design. 
Gold Leaf Gallery is the best frame shop in East Texas! They have a great selec­tion of qual­i­ty frames, and the staff is very knowl­edge­able and friend­ly. Be sure to check-out their occa­sion­al events, too! 🙂 
Ive known these girls for a long time and I’m hear to say there is nobody in the busi­ness in E.Texas that can com­pare to their qual­i­ty and pro­fes­sion­al­ism. Tru­ly the best in E. Texas. Their bright and cheer­ful atti­tude and smile make it an utter joy to walk in the shop. The GLG has been an estab­lished busi­ness in Tyler since 1975 with an excel­lent 5star cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion rat­ing. Thx for the many years of great work girls. Yours Tru­ly T. L. 
These two sis­ters are the most pro­fes­sion­al, tal­ent­ed women in this indus­try. I don’t think there is any­thing that Deb­bie can­not do, from fram­ing, cal­lig­ra­phy and shad­ow box­ing! I will always cher­ish the mem­o­ry of my daugh­ter open­ing up her Christ­mas present to her favorite paint­ing that was done by Gold Leaf Gallery. They are like part of the fam­i­ly, thanks again! 
Excel­lent ser­vice. Sten­to­ri­an needs of the cus­tomer. Fin­ished frame work is always beautiful! 
Just earned my Bach­e­lor’s degree and only want­ed the best to frame it. Gold Leaf does a beau­ti­ful job! I won’t go any­where else! 
I’ve had them frame every­thing from con­vert posters and fin­ger paint­ings to oil paint­ings and every time it turns out fan­tas­tic. They take the time to talk with me and fig­ure out the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of frame and back­ing and glass to work with my art in the space it will hang and with­in my bud­get. They even set me up with and extreme­ly tal­ent­ed guy to come hang some tricky art­work in my home. There is no one else in tyler that will take bet­ter care of your fram­ing needs. I can’t rec­om­mend them high­ly enough. 
Won­der­ful shop. These two ladies are so artis­tic and tal­ent­ed. My order was perfect! 
Had a prob­lem with the frame and Tracey and Deb­bie resolved the issue and got our pic­ture back to us way ahead of the expect­ed time. We are pleased. 
Recent­ly I have had the plea­sure of work­ing with Traci and Deb­bie. They are two of the most pro­fes­sion­al busi­ness own­ers I have met. They are both extreme­ly pleas­ant and per­son­able. The suc­cess of GL Gallery reflects the wis­dom, expe­ri­ence, and exper­tise they have acquired from a long his­to­ry of work­ing in the art gallery/framing/customer ser­vice indus­try. I am proud to know them both; and I high­ly rec­om­mend them for your art and fram­ing needs! 
Traci was won­der­ful to work with. She found and worked with an artist to make a spe­cial one of a kind paint­ing. The result I could not be more hap­py with! 
We have had sev­er­al pic­tures framed by Gold Leaf and have more that need to be done. Have been very hap­py with the prod­uct and friend­ly cus­tomer service. 
They do an amaz­ing beau­ti­ful job on what­ev­er you need framed. I had jobs done by them when I lived in Tyler now we live in the DFW area and still pre­fer hav­ing all of my paint­ings framed at Gold Leaf in Tyler. They are so knowl­edge­able which makes get­ting the per­fect fram­ing job done easily.Thank you, Gold Leaf Gallery Ger­ry Hicks 
Amaz­ing work!! 
Deb­bie & Traci are extreme­ly tal­ent­ed! Their skill ele­vates every piece that they frame. Traci is able to accom­mo­date a vari­ety of styles. There is a mas­sive dif­fer­ence between craft store fram­ing and Gold Leaf fram­ing, it’s worth it! 
A big vari­ety of frame art with a huge col­lec­tion to get your cus­tomized frame for paint­ings etc. 
The best in the busi­ness. Pro­fes­sion­al and always exe­cut­ed with class! No one else compares. 
Deb­bie framed my diplo­mas for me over 20 years ago. They still look per­fect. If you want some­thing done right, take it to Gold Leaf Gallery! 
Great peo­ple! Beau­ti­ful art 
As a pic­ture framer myself for 20 years work­ing for a very large whole­sale shop in Mil­wau­kee, Wis­con­sin, I know all of the ins and outs of qual­i­ty fram­ing. Are largest client was Mer­rill Chase Gal­leries out of Chica­go. We framed art for many gal­leries across the Mid­west on a week­ly basis and we had excep­tion­al­ly high stan­dards. Qual­i­ty pic­ture fram­ing has so many vari­ables. Types of mats, glass, back­ing, mat reveal, how a piece is hinged or mount­ed. A piece that is framed cor­rect­ly will last a very long time. I have come to know the own­ers at Gold Leaf since I moved to Tyler in 2009 and have used them for some of my own pieces and have seen the same qual­i­ty I myself am accus­tomed to. I will accept no less since this is what I myself pro­vid­ed all those years in Mil­wau­kee. Aside from their qual­i­ty work, it has always been a plea­sure work­ing with Traci and her sis­ter Deb­o­rah. I con­tin­ue to work with them often and will con­tin­ue. I def­i­nite­ly rec­om­mend them for your fram­ing. They have also been doing it a long time, and when it comes to fram­ing, you def­i­nite­ly want some­one with expe­ri­ence hand­ing your treasures. 
This is the place to find a large range of high qual­i­ty art right in the heart of Tyler, Texas! Whether you are local or out of town be sure to make this your des­ti­na­tion stop. Not only will you find amaz­ing art, but the cus­tom fram­ing is right on point! 
I had a very par­tic­u­lar issue with some por­traits that are very impor­tant to me and I came into the store for a quote. I told the ladies I would think about it and they under­stood because of the size of the por­traits and the detail that would be involved. Most busi­ness­es would have stopped there, but their pas­sion for help­ing peo­ple and pre­serv­ing art came through when they gave me a rec­om­men­da­tion that did not involve their store. I was so impressed with their cus­tomer ser­vice, I went back to them and asked them to help me com­plete the project and they did an amaz­ing job. The ladies at Gold Leaf Art Gallery love what they do and it shows in how they treat peo­ple. High­ly rec­om­mend!! — 5 star Service! 
Absolute­ly won­der­ful place! So friend­ly and per­son­able. Excel­lent work! Beau­ti­ful shop. This was our sec­ond time work­ing with them and we couldn’t be hap­pi­er. Def­i­nite­ly THE place to get fram­ing done. 
Knowl­edge­able staff, fea­tures vary­ing works of art. Very helpful!

Custom Frame Shop FAQ 

Related Questions

We try to make the expe­ri­ence as easy and pleas­ant as pos­si­ble. Usu­al­ly, we encour­age clients to give as much input as pos­si­ble – what you expect from the piece, what you pre­fer in style, etc ( for exam­ple where you expect to hang it – does it need to be larg­er than it is – what kind of pro­tec­tion will it need ). Our role is to guide and teach what is nec­es­sary to pro­tect and pre­serve your art­work. We will pro­vide you with options that suit your per­son­al aes­thet­ic and pro­vide you with choic­es that also fit your budget.

 

Art­work is framed not only to pre­serve the can­vas but also to enhance it, typ­i­cal­ly art­work isn’t usu­al­ly com­plete until it has been framed. Let’s take Charles Will­son Peale’s Trompe‑l’oeil Stair­way. This art­work con­sists of two young men ascend­ing a stair­case. What makes the art­work amaz­ing is the way it is framed – like an actu­al door­way with an actu­al step at the bottom.

The result­ing effect is the trans­for­ma­tion of the art­work into an illu­sion in which one believes they can pass through the art­work into anoth­er world. Imag­ine tak­ing a pho­to with this art­work, you would put one foot on the step and pro­ceed as if you are climb­ing up as well.

Clas­si­cal art­work was framed to cre­ate the tran­si­tion from the phys­i­cal loca­tion into the world of the paint­ing. It com­pletes and pro­tects the art­work while adding val­ue. With years of expe­ri­ence, you can count on us to expert­ly frame your pic­ture exact­ly the way you want it.

Though our qual­i­ty is high­er than oth­er frame shops, the short answer is NO.

To elab­o­rate: Our prices are stan­dard­ized and are at the nation­al aver­age. We are proud to say that as a result of our pur­chas­ing pow­er, we can actu­al­ly offer very com­pet­i­tive pric­ing. The prod­ucts we sell are con­sid­ered the best in the mar­ket. For exam­ple, we do NOT sell plas­tic or foam base frames that visu­al­ly are the same but are obvi­ous­ly a low­er qual­i­ty product.

Addi­tion­al­ly, we pur­chase from man­u­fac­tur­ers who are envi­ron­men­tal­ly respon­si­ble. That said, frame shops who con­sid­er them­selves our com­peti­tors will say they are “cheap­er” when in fact they are offer­ing less for less. Our frame shop ser­vices are offered at a very com­pet­i­tive price and our work is guar­an­teed. We know that is unique.

Con­ser­va­tion Fram­ing involves three things – not alter­ing the art­work, it must be reversible and must pre­serve and pro­tect the art­work from dam­ag­ing elements.

 

In many cas­es, yes. Sad­ly, in some cas­es, a frame can’t be repaired. We need to see the frame and actu­al­ly manip­u­late it to under­stand its integri­ty to make that deci­sion. Pho­tos help but are not enough to make a sound deci­sion. We kind­ly ask that you come to our frame shop for us to make that final deci­sion. How­ev­er, chang­ing out glass or mat­ting is usu­al­ly rel­a­tive­ly easy – as long as the frame is sound – mean­ing the cor­ners are strong enough to with­stand being tak­en apart and being rebuilt.

These are meant to pre­serve your art­work long term. They are tru­ly the best invest­ment for your art­work or fam­i­ly heirloom.

In most cas­es, we are hap­py to help. Our sys­tem allows us to put in basic dimen­sions and prod­ucts. We con­sid­er this a start­ing point and we will always encour­age you to come in or if it’s dif­fi­cult for you to get in, to have your art sent to us for eval­u­a­tion. Obvi­ous­ly, we need to see the art­work and mea­sure it to be cer­tain of spe­cif­ic details, so a quote is sim­ply an esti­mate that may have to be revised if new infor­ma­tion is obtained.

We do real­ize that our clients may shop at com­peti­tors and be look­ing for a cost-effec­tive solu­tion. Our expe­ri­ence in these mat­ters has been twofold. Either the end result is not the exact same prod­uct and mate­ri­als that we offer, or the qual­i­ty of work is not up to our high standards.

We wel­come com­pe­ti­tion but stand by the high stan­dards that our frame shop has set for our­selves. We will also not reduce our prices just to under­cut our com­pe­ti­tion. We respect our clients and our ven­dors as well as the pric­ing struc­tures we have in place. They are fair and our work will fol­low suit.

The result­ing effect is the trans­for­ma­tion of the art­work into an illu­sion in which one believes they can pass through the art­work into anoth­er world. Imag­ine tak­ing a pho­to with this art­work, you would put one foot on the step and pro­ceed as if you are climb­ing up as well.

Clas­si­cal art­work was framed to cre­ate the tran­si­tion from the phys­i­cal loca­tion into the world of the paint­ing. It com­pletes and pro­tects the art­work while adding val­ue. With years of expe­ri­ence, you can count on us to expert­ly frame your pic­ture exact­ly the way you want it.

YES! We can cus­tomize just about any frame we have in store to any cus­tom size to fit your needs.

Our stan­dard turn­around may be between 2–3 weeks. We have a great sys­tem in place which allows us to track all of our projects, which, by the way, are all com­plet­ed in house.

Some of our mold­ings are hand made and do require gold leaf or weld­ing (steel or oth­er met­als) which may delay times. We have an amaz­ing team of part­ners who work with us, and because of this extend­ed work, these types of jobs may require between 4–6 weeks to final completion.

Due to the nature of our work, most being ful­ly cus­tom fram­ing, we do require full pay­ment at the point of sale. 

We part­ner with a vari­ety of com­pa­nies that can han­dle the deliv­ery and even instal­la­tion if needed.

Over the years, we have sur­round­ed our­selves with some of the best paper, fab­ric, and art (can­vas or pan­el) con­ser­va­tors. We will be hap­py to assess your art in our frame shop and we can facil­i­tate restora­tion services.

Paper isn’t always flat. In many cas­es, for exam­ple with water­col­ors, the paper has received exces­sive mois­ture and has most like­ly buck­led. Pho­tog­ra­phy, vin­tage or mod­ern, also has mois­ture either from hav­ing been put into a bath (old style of pho­to devel­op­ing) or inkjet sur­face spray (new style.) In the above-men­tioned cas­es, the ambi­ent tem­per­a­ture will reac­ti­vate that mois­ture much like heat and mois­ture reac­ti­vate the curl in hair that has been straight­ened. Once art is framed, it can react to ambi­ent tem­per­a­ture, espe­cial­ly in exces­sive heat or cold, and cause the art to actu­al­ly move. This is typ­i­cal and should not be a concern.
