I needed an oil painting stretched and framed. I had an idea of what I didn't want for the frame style, but wasn't sure of what I did want. Carter Frames helped me select a frame that works perfectly with my painting. In fact, I admire the frame details almost as much as I admire the painting. The quality of the frame is outstanding and the service was exceptional.

The staff are very friendly and talented. They gave us several options for each piece and explained the pros and cons of different matting and framing styles. One piece required them to help us lay out five cards from Tanzania in an attractive manner and frame suitably, and they did a very good job. It's not cheap, but they do high-quality work and in less than a week each time.

My pictures were framed within the promised 1 week.  There was even a holiday in the middle but they still completed the work on time.  The cost was less than other framing shops without sacrificing quality.  I had a great conversation with two of the framers about mat colors and ideal frames.  I really appreciated their insight into colors, balance and frame material type.  I walked away with two...
