Framing FAQ

How long does framing take?

Most framing projects are completed and returned to our clients within 10 days! Turnaround ultimately depends on the complexity of the project and if we carry your custom frame in-stock or need to order it. FrameXpress projects can be completed in as little as one day, up to one week.

Is hanging hardware included?

YES! The back of your framed project will have the appropriate hanging hardware for its size and weight. This is usually wire or D-rings, as well as a proper size hook for your wall.

Do you deliver or install framing?

YES! We can pick-up, deliver and install any custom framed project that we produce. Click Here for details. »

What does custom framing cost?

The price varies widely with size, mouldings, and materials chosen for your particular piece. We are happy to listen to what you want, work up a framing design, and give quotes based on the appropriate procedures. Bring your artwork into the shop and explore your options!

Can you repair damaged artwork or frames?

YES! Frame Dimensions offers physical restoration services for torn, discolored, or damaged frames & artwork. We can also repair frames whose corners have pulled apart over time, replace broken glass, or refit previously framed pieces with acid-free conservation materials. Frame Dimensions is well-known for our insurance recovery services after catastrophe like fire. To breathe new life into your old family photos, we also offer digital photo restoration & printing.

Do you stock photo frames?

YES! In many styles and sizes. We stock standard sizes like 4×6″, 5×7″ & 8×10″, matted and unmatted, to fit your documents and photos.

Do you offer custom mirrors?

YES! We can create custom mirrors with either flat or beveled edges, unframed or custom framed. Due to the heavy weight of framed mirrors, we highly recommend letting us install them, too. If you wish to create a custom mirror, please let us know what measurements you require, and if those are maximum space constraints.

Can I see my frame design before I buy it?

YES! We have a Visualization system that lets you see your artwork with your matting & framing choices…BEFORE you buy it! Stop by either of our galleries to try out Virtual Framing. Take the worry out of framing – seeing is believing!
