Franklin Picture Framing specializes in framing anything from the ordinary to the extraordinary! Whether you have a photo, print, painting, cherished keepsake, 3 dimensional item or priceless heirloom, we can frame it for you. We offer both decorative and conservation framing for both residential and commercial clients. Our showroom has an extensive collection of over 4000 frames, mats and glass samples from which to choose.
We invite you to view our Gallery to see the level of creativity, skill, and craftsmanship that our shop is well known for.
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 clients considered 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 clients left very happy customers!
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 removed and restored to there original glory.
Our Epson Pro 9900 fine art printer is known for producing the finest quality prints of any machine in its class. Image sizes range anywhere from between a 5x7 inch snapshot to an impressive 44x96 inch goliath on either paper or canvas!
For the very finest reproductions of original art work and photography it is important to understand the big differences between print shops and fine art printers. Learn how to choose the right one for your project.
We offer both roll and heat press laminating services.
Our roll laminator will accept any piece of paper up to 24" wide. It is worth noting that roll lamination is usually a more economical choice when compared with pouch laminating.
Our heat press is primarily used for pieces that require specialty finishes or may be too thick for roll lamination.
