Everyday Framing

The Everyday Framing display in our showroom

As someone said, the ordinary is the significant. Even simple, everyday items you display in your home or office to look at every day, should be framed right—in solid hardwood, with proper joinery and finishing, and harmoniously suited to the picture.

At special reduced pricing, we make it more affordable to custom frame these everyday yet no less significant pieces. And you get the same beautiful simplicity and uncompromising craftsmanship characteristic of all of our frames.

Everyday Framing is for smaller works on paper, including the most commonly framed items, such as photos, small prints, diplomas and certificates, mementos, and childrens’ drawings. Everyday Framing is available in our full range of woods and a beautiful selection of our simplest narrow profiles, 1” wide and less. It’s designed for works on paper, 36 united inches (height + width; for example, 16” x 20”) or smaller (glass size). Your artwork will be expertly fit behind Conservation (u.v.-filtering) glass, and backed with acid-free foamcore.


Basic Everyday Framing

Take advantage of our most affordable prices on custom framing using our simplest profiles. Most economical is our Basic Everyday Framing with u.v.-filtering glass and acid-free backing but no mat. For a little bit more, get Everyday Conservation Framing, which includes a mat or spacers, also specially priced.


“Step Up” Everyday Framing

For an additional discounted charge, enhance and emphasize the significance of your treasured picture with details like mortise-and-tenon joints, simple carved decorative corner accents, and hand tooling to part or all of the frame face.
