When Excellence Matters

  Franklin Picture Framing  specializes in framing anything from the ordinary to the extraordinary!  Whether you have a photo, print,  painting,  cherished  keepsake,  or priceless heirloom, we can frame it for you.  We also construct custom acrylic cases for larger 3D objects as well. 

  Our showroom has an  extensive collection of over 4000 frames, mats and glass samples from which to choose.  Daily we hear the word, "WOW" when guests walk through our showroom doors. 

  We are also one of the few frame shops in the area that owns a CMC, computerized mat cutter.  This machine allows us to reach levels of creativity and precision that simply cannot be achieved any other way.

  Now in our 5th year in Franklin, and over 3300 completed projects, we invite you to view our Gallery to see the level of creativity, skill, and craftsmanship that our shop is well known for.

When Excellence Matters

  Almost any kind of damage to photos can be either completely eliminated or significantly reduced with today's computer technologies.  Even severe damage like torn photos can be seamlessly repaired. 

  Fading, discoloration, stains, creasing, water marks and even missing pieces can often be restored to there original glory.

When Excellence Matters

  Frames that have suffered minor to major damage can often be repaired and/or restored.  This antique wood and plaster frame from the 1800's (pictured)  was completely broken at all 4 corners after being shipped from overseas.  Our client thought about replacing the frame believing that it could not be salvaged.  Considering that it was a family heirloom, we felt it was  worth attempting to repair.  Needless to say, after we were done our client left a very happy customer!
