Custom Picture Frames in Bethesda, MD


Custom – Philosophy

The basic philosophy behind conservation framing is that the art is never to be altered in any permanent way by the framing process. We create a total archival environment for the art, which can include museum quality mats and backing and UV-filtered glass. Only archival mounting techniques are employed, whether the art is an oil painting or a shadow box for preserving your memorabilia. We consider it our duty to provide customers with the best available information on the possible consequences of whatever design they choose.

Unparalleled Customer Service

Both the quality of our work and our customer service are unmatched in the industry. We treat every customer and every project, no matter the size or rarity, with the respect and care of a priceless work of art. We are experts at conservation picture framing, but if ever a situation arises where we find ourselves stumped, we consult the professionals at the Smithsonian.

From large 4’x8’ canvases to much smaller pieces, all of our work is done on-site and can usually be completed within 7 to 10 days, depending on how long requested materials take to arrive. We give the same attention and care to every piece of artwork that comes into the store—you will receive the exact, quality framing that you ordered and nothing less.
