We took two pieces to this store to be framed. I had noticed the very poor review but then also noticed the good ones. The poor one gave us some concern but we ended up trying them anyways because one of my wife's very close friends

I have had a few items framed in the past and recently took a few more to this location. We recently moved to town and are looking for new businesses to deal with. The folks here were fantastic. Custom framing isn't cheap but I actually

I have been a customer of this stores for quite some time and recently stumbled upon this review site and was stunned by the review from srcre because I do framing in various parts of the country with my travels and the Great Frame Up on

I went to The Great Frame Up with two pieces to have framed. I had bought framing services before but only small, not very important pieces. I was astounded when they gave me a quote for over $1700 just for one of the pieces. So I investigated a bit and went to 2 other frame shops and had them quote on nearly exactly the same scenario. 2x matting, archival, museum glass, bold frame with some distressed gold leaf. I ended up paying only $374.58 for BOTH! Like I said the exact same thing for $1400 less. I asked the other framer why he thought The Great Frame Up was so over prices- he was puzzled and said that "We all us the same materials". Any way. The pieces look wonderful, are beautifully crafted and I saved myself enough to re-frame several more pieces. I've told this story to many of my friends and to be sure to avoid the grossly inflated prices at The Great Frame Up.

Pros: Nice People

Cons: Way, way, way overpriced.

My family has used the Great Frame Up for decades - their work is perfect and had stood the test of time; we've framed everything from original charcoal sketches to antique maps to tourist posters with them - everything turns out fantastically & is a joy to look at. It's amazing what a good frame can do to even a mediocre image. They do custom framing for you, or supply you the materials so you can do it yourself in their workshop. Extensive selection of matts & frames. Their prices are high but more than worth it for the results.

PROS: Stunning results, reliable, intelligent service
CONS: Expensive - but worth it!
