Please Pay Attention to the Sunset

Please Pay Attention to the Sunset
We would like to start out by thanking all of those who work in essential businesses, emergency services, and the health care industries who continue to work to help us all through these trying times.  We would also like to thank all of those who work in non-essential businesses who continue to stay home and shelter in place so those who do need to still work, can do so with less chance of exposure to COVID 19, and help us to flatten out the curve. We were required to close by order of Broward County as a non-essential business to protect our community from COVID19. We value our customers a...

How Much Should Framing Cost?

How Much Should Framing Cost?
We have been asked if there is a formula for how much you should spend on framing compared to how much you spent on the art.  There is no formula.  We have been told, "I only spent $3 on this art I bought on vacation, I don't want to spend a lot on the framing".  We get it, sometimes you have something you want to hang that didn't cost a lot - but guess what - frame pricing goes by the size of the art, not the value of the art. If you had a Picasso and a flea market painting that are the same size - pick any frame and it would cost the same on both.  Look at this cheap find.  The client only s...

Is There a Right Way to Frame Art?

Is There a Right Way to Frame Art?
We get the question all of the time "What is the right way to frame a piece of art? Are there rules about the size of matting or framing?"  There is no right way.  Look at these two custom framed pieces - what's the difference between these two?  They are the same piece of art, and they both work with a black and gold framing combination - but there is a difference.  The art is the same size in both pictures, but the finished size is very different.  One is framed simply with a double mat and a thin gold frame, and it looks great.  The other piece is framed with a black linen liner, a ...

When a client brought in this 9x12 painting by Kenney Mencher, we fell in love!  At THE FRAME STUDIO, we get to see all kinds of amazing art.  When this wet on wet oil painting technique is paired with this modern black and silver frame - WOW!  This is yet another custom framed piece of art that we really would have loved to keep.

just . . . WOW!

just . . . WOW!
A client brought in this large Ashley Longshore silk scarf for custom framing - sometimes scarves cannot be fully admired when they are tied around your neck. Working with THE FRAME STUDIO, the client chose a really WOW framing combo stacking two mirrored frames together to get a very 1920's Gatsby feel. We had a hard time letting this beauty leave the shop!

They Never Forget

They Never Forget
A client brought this beautiful photograph of an elephant in to THE FRAME STUDIO as a memory of a wonderful trip and much time spent in an artist's market being enthralled with the art.  Once he and his wife saw this piece, they had to have it. Picking out custom framing for this art was easy - it needed to be simplistic but could be more bulky to balance out the size and darkness of the elephant.  When we found this framing combination, there was no question it was the right one. The detail in this elephant portrait is unbelievable, and the framing helps accentuate it. Plus - the size o...

Yes, we can do that!

Yes, we can do that!
Two of our clients are huge Dead Heads, and they brought in this signed double album "Reckoning" that they wanted THE FRAME STUDIO to custom frame. Yes, we can do that! We worked together to come up with a framing combination that accentuated the cover art, while also making sure to show the vinyl. It was all done in a shadow box frame to allow for the depth of the records. If you need a miracle . . . we've got one for you . . . every day!
