CUSTOM FRAMING

Custom Framing orders are scheduled by appointment.

Framing requires some time and attention to explore all the options and find the best solution for our customers, so this time set aside from other distractions during normal business hours is essential and makes for a much more enjoyable experience.

 

Follow the link below to schedule!

We occasionally schedule framing orders on Saturdays. Reach out to us to set up an appointment with our Custom Framer on a Saturday.

 

 

 

 

Colours offers a wide range of framing options in hundreds of styles and colors. Our goal is to make sure your frame compliments your art and fits perfectly in your home or office
All of our framing is done on-site and we typically have about
a two week turnaround time.

When you bring in something to be framed, we will consider the style, color and size of your art, as well as where you plan to hang it: the style and color of the room, the room's lighting (whether artificial, natural, or direct). We will take the time to choose among frame samples and mat colors, and will explain the different types of materials. These things make all the difference in not only whether you'll be pleased with the frame when it's complete, but also in determining what materials and steps are necessary for your framing desires and/or needs. 

A frame should be made to last, and it can be just what you need to complete a work of art.

Please Note: Our framing services do not include stretching canvas, framed jerseys, repairing/restoring art work or frames.

We're here to meet your needs and
help you discover your creativity.
