We choose Alexandria Picture Framing Co. because they were clearly artisans of the trade, and not just focused on the business. They also spent a significant amount of time providing suggestions, taking special care with the large (and expensively printed) photos we brought with us. In addition to the excellent advice provided, we were also allowed to go seek out frames and mattes that we thought ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had broad framing needs, which ranged from framing 4 custom Chromira photo prints of varying sizes from 12 x 15 inchs to 2 x 3 fee to matting and reframing an original, large Ben Shahn silkscreen print. We visited Alexandria Picture Framing Co and a competitor in DC to get estimates for the work we wanted done and ultimate choose Alexandria Picture Framing Co. When you walk in, there framed pictures, photos and other items everywhere and the proprietors are artists as well as framers, so they're looking to make whatever you need framed look its best. During the estimate discussion, they were very helpful and looked at each photo, measured it and provided mid-range framing and matting estimates. Since we planned to do a large amount of work, they offered a 20% discount.

Had a wide selection of frames to choose from. Made good suggestions on using UV-coated glass to protect against fading and inserting a spacer to keep ink on signatures from sticking to glass. Framing was done in the time promised - just under 2 weeks.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Dry mounted and framed autographed lithograph.

Terrific. Delivery was about a week after the date we'd originally discussed, but we weren't in a hurry. The quality was excellent and pricing not dramatically higher than Michaels (who has disappointed me again and again w/inferior quality).

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Framed a large art photograph w/plexiglass, advised on matting and style.
