Custom picture framing is the art of enhancing a piece of artwork by adding mats or liners and frames, and preserving the artwork. Any artwork — including watercolors, oil paintings, certificates, memorabilia, photos, textiles, or posters — can be enriched with knowledge of correct framing techniques and design skills.
Custom picture framing does not stop at simple paintings or posters. Some of our favorite projects include shadow boxes with family memorabilia, awards and medals, textiles (baby christening gowns, jackets etc.), as well as diplomas, certificates, and favorite photographs.
Grand Galleria has been creating custom picture frames since 1981. The expertise and professional service at Grand Galleria will help you reach the goal of aesthetically preserving your precious artwork.

How Custom Framing Works
Custom picture framing is a multi-step process. Brian first assesses the artwork, finds out where it will be displayed, and explores what you have in mind for framing.
Then he starts the design process, explaining each step along the way. He shows you various mat samples and framing options and discusses lighting. Protecting the artwork is an important goal, so he carefully considers the type of glazing to use (clear glass, reflective control glass, plexiglass, or archival glass).
Brian will work closely with you to provide the best solution for truly aesthetic frames and glass that also protect your art treasures so you can enjoy them for many years to come.
Pricing depends on the size and the cost of the materials, the number of mats, the frame, and the glass. Please contact Brian to discuss your custom framing needs.
