Next time you buy a frame at ikea, have them do the custom work you need done. We pride ourselves on being fair, since 1929 has to mean something. The whole transaction was an insult. As far as the anniversary frame, we find the whole story odd since we really don't frame anything within an hour. We wonder if it was actually us. You have the freedom to choose, if the price was too much, you could of said no. If you have a problem, please tell me. To tell your story anonymously is not fair to us. What one person feels expensive may not feel expensive to another. Mark S. Owner

So... I've lived in the area for about 6 years now. I also used to work for a camera store nearby and have personally sent a lot of business their way.
Today i went to the store with a frame I had purchased form IKEA that needed its mat opening enlarged in order to fit the piece I wanted to frame.
From the moment I entered the store the owner looked as if that was the last place in the world he wanted to be at the moment. He looked at the frame each and every way, scratched hos head about a million times, made an unhappy face and quoted me a rather high price ($40). How do I know it's high? He had done the exact same job (only a few months ago) for 25% of what he was asking now. I hesitated for a moment, while trying to assimilate the price and the reasoning behind it. And since I didn't want to drive around for 2 hrs shopping for a cheaper price I asked him if he could do it for about 10% less. With utter disgust on his face and in his voice he said "No, I don't even want to do the job".
"Oh, well... you should have started with that!" For a privately-owned shop to tell a customer that they don't want their business to me is stupid, lazy and equals suicide.
So... have a nice day, Mr. I'll be sure to never give you any business.

I used this place to get my parents a frame for their anniversary. I thought the place was really expensive, but it was very last minute and I had now choice. They framed a picture for me within an hour which was good, but I really felt the loss from my wallet! But the service is friendly and the people here will get the job done right.
