Framing

After 25 years of operation, custom framing remains the backbone of our business.  Our specialty is preserving artwork, documents, and objects.  Our goal is always to make it possible to remove an item from the frame without any significant alteration to its original state.

We have been trusted with artwork from the Huntington Museum of Art, the North House Museum in Lewisburg, West Virginia and the Smithsonian Institution affiliate, Heritage Farm Museum in Wayne County, West Virginia.

We have created stunning shadowbox collections, created display cases for treasured objects, and framed a variety of textiles from cross-stitch to baptismal gowns.  We have mounted and framed every collectible sports jersey and uniform imaginable.

Greg Norris, CPF, has received advanced specialized training in mounting artwork on paper and canvas, as well as preservation mounting of documents and objects.  He has taught courses at the National Conference in Las Vegas.

Greg regularly consults to picture framers around the world on mounting and framing techniques and is a part of a network of picture framers allowing instant access to the knowledge of hundreds of framers, conservators, and curators with specialized skills.

Greg recently served two consecutive terms as the president of the international Professional Picture Framers Association.

While custom framing may seem simple, and that is as it should be for our customers, each job presents a unique set of challenges to the framer.  Often, knowing what not to do is far more important than knowing what to do.

As the science of preserving artwork and documents continues to evolve, new methods and materials are constantly being tested and introduced. We have a long history of pursuing continuing education opportunities at international and national educational events as well as online webinars.

You can be certain that the work we perform will involve the best materials and methods currently available.
