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...

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 ...

The Mai-Kai Recreated

The Mai-Kai Recreated
A client brought in this amazing piece of artwork by Christina Lihan Studio, and we were just blown away.  THE FRAME STUDIO custom framed it simply with a black shadow box frame and added a rustic wood fillet to bring in the all wood feel of the Mai-Kai's beautiful decor, and used Museum Glass to help see this beauty without the glare of the Florida sun.  If you get to check out this artist on Facebook or Instagram, you will be stunned by the detail she creates with cut paper!

We Fell In Love . . .

We Fell In Love . . .
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!

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!

Framing Redo

Framing Redo
A client brought in two very cool pieces to THE FRAME STUDIO that were framed back in the 80s - and boy did the framing show that! (SEE BELOW. When is the last time you saw malachite laminate?) These two pieces of art done on plexi are of her and her husbands astrological signs. (Isn't that sweet?) She wanted custom frame them to update these two pieces to fit her current décor.  Working with the colors in her home, she found a framing combination that now brings them back to life and ties them together better. So you need to redo the framing for something you love?  Call us to make an...

Memories of the War

Memories of the War
When our client brought her father-in-law's WWII memorabilia in to THE FRAME STUDIO, she told us it was very special to him.  We made sure to treat it as such when we custom framed his medals, letter, and photograph. It got a framing package that treated it with respect, and made sure to showcase it's importance in his life.  The simplicity of the gold and black shadow box combination let the colors in the medals really stand out - especially his purple heart! We were proud to be able to provide a collection of memories and appropriate home.  Thank you to all of those who have served in the...
