What can The Print Shop frame for me? Give us a challenge. You won’t be disappointed!
Prints and Posters
While framing posters is the simplest of our framing options, the variety is endless! We drymount prints and posters on acid-free foamcore to ensure the artwork remains flat for the life of the framing. From there, we have a rainbow of matting choices and a wall full of wood and metal frames to suit all styles and personalities. At The Print Shop, framing a print is anything but basic!
All of our work is completed on-site with impeccable care and precision, and is guaranteed for life. We offer only the best acid-free framing options in our matting and backing, from our everyday Artique to our museum-quality Crescent Cotton Rag.
And since ultra-violet light is the enemy to any precious piece, we provide a wide range of glass options. Our UV and non-glare UV glass offer the appearance of traditional glass while blocking 99% of harmful UV rays. And for those who want the appearance of nothing being between them and their artwork, we offer an anti-reflective museum glass with 78-88% UV blocking ability. If size or breakability is an issue, we have plexiglass, non-glare plexiglass and UV plexiglass.
Essentially, at The Print Shop we want to make sure that your treasures look beautiful today, and for generations to come.
Congratulations! We can beautifully frame any of your bridal and wedding portraits, and any of those fun candid reception shots, too! With the help from any of our sales associates, you will be able to select a sleek contemporary framing design, or a fancy traditional design, or anything in between. Whatever best suits your personal style, the possibilities are endless.
We can also do oversized matting work around any of your photos to have your reception guests sign, preserving your wonderful memories on your special day. Then just bring it back in to complete with a custom frame of your choice.

On the Spot Framing
And finally, at The Print Shop, we know some things just can’t wait for a custom frame. For these situations, we offer our “on the spot” framing services. We carry pre-made frames in a variety of sizes, Nielsen metal frame kits in lengths from 5″ to 40″ and offer the Uni-frame hanging system for any size from postcard to poster. Assemble it yourself, or let our experienced staff do it for you. You don’t have to sacrifice quality for speed. We assemble every order with the same care we show all our quality custom framing.
You already know about our “on the spot” drymounting services, but did you know that we can cut mats and glass to any size while you wait as well? Bring in your artwork and frame. We’ll cut a custom mat to make the two work together perfectly.
And glass accidents are no problem at The Print Shop. Wrap it up, bring it in, and we’ll clean up frame and artwork, replace the glass, and get your piece back on the wall in no time!
Need it now? Our walls are full of possibilities! We have pre-framed gallery pieces of every shape and style, just ready to hang, and if it’s a gift, we’ll wrap it up and tie on a bow!
