We love this beautiful painting featuring bright fall colors and a gorgeous view. The stark white mat and natural frame make this scene pop.
What a heartwarming painting! The mat and frame enhance the denim blue in the painting and the nostalgia for the joys of childhood friendship.
Cindy does beautiful, professional work! She takes time to help you create the look you want, savor the memories of old pictures and memorabilia, and her attention to detail is second to none! Go see her today!
Cindy, the owner, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. She explained every step that goes into framing and how each step plays into the overall price. She did a fantastic job framing my NC law license and various admissions. Cindy is the go-to in Raleigh!
WOW!!! The small crew here can tackle any print, project, or collage, no matter how large your imagination. The college diploma framed turned out exactly how I imagined and the collage with all my concert memorabilia rocked and floored me. It is amazing. I'd recommend this shop to anybody needing anything framed. Cindy is an expert, creative framer, plus, she and Sherri are both pleasures to work with. Thank you both so much for making the Dinosaur piece come alive!
Excellent work. My wife loves the attention and skill applied to having her cross stitch works matted and framed here.
I've had several items custom framed from here, including photography destined for competitions. The owner and staff are good at suggesting various framing styles with customer needs, desires, and price points in mind. I've been very satisfied with the finished results.
Totally recommend this place! I brought in a canvas painting and Cindy patiently walked me through the options for frames. She helped me understand what I needed but also made sure the end result was exactly to my taste. I can't believe how great the framed painting turned out. I can't wait to hang it on my wall!!
This is a fantastic frame shop. I have taken several things there and have been extremely pleased with each piece. Cindy and Sherrie will spend as much time as you need to pick out the perfect mats and frames. I had really looked around quite a bit for a frame shop and knew I had found the right place the first time I went there. They really do beautiful work and always make you feel that you are valued as a customer.
Cindy does excellent work. She's framed nine pictures for me and I have always been delighted with the result. She spends a lot of time with you picking out the perfect frame and matting. She's experienced enough to guide you in the right direction if you're unsure about where to start but also very intuitive in perceiving what you're looking for. Frame & Art Shop is my go-to place for framing. The expertise and customer service are both superb.
I have always LOVED the artist style and suggestions provided by the friendly staff at this amazing frame shop. The prices are excellent and the customer service beyond tops.
I went here to get a matted around 2 pictures I had. I did not want any frame. The lady was very nice, she was helpful to the place I visited first as the head would not help me. Here you were treated well and I received the treatment a customer deserves. Thank you very much for the help and for the wrapping of my pictures
This shop is the finest framer in Raleigh! The owner is very knowledgeable and has a fantastic creative eye to know how to frame to compliment even the most unique pieces. I can not recommend the quality of work done here highly enough! Excellent!
I am a repeat customer of Frame & Art Shop! I have had 2 original art pieces (family treasures) matted and beautifully framed, one old bathroom mirror brought back to life with a stunning frame (hangs in my living room now), and specialty matts cut for non-standard sized antique watercolors I bought at a thrift store. The owner, Cindy, has an appreciation for size and scale and a talent to match design elements in the frames and textures/colors of the matts to the subject/style of the pictures.
We have had two pieces framed by the Frame & Art Shop and are very happy with them both! When you come into the shop, you are always made to feel welcome and appreciated. The owner, Cindy takes the time to go through all options and provide wonderful suggestions to fit what you have! Their customer service is second to none as well as the quality of their services. We will be going back to them in the future!
I had an expensive bit of work done as a Christmas Present and totally forgot about the owner telling me that they would be closed Saturday before Christmas. I drove up only to find it closed and realized I had screwed up good. She was gracious enough to meet me on her day off and let me pick up the artwork. The frame, matting and attention to detail was beautiful. Next time you shop at a big box or impersonal chain, ask yourself if the manager would drive in on their day off so you could pick up something you forgot!
I've had multiple pieces framed and reframed here, and they all turned out perfectly. Ms. Cindy has a great eye for choosing just the right mat and frame. Great service, great people, can't ask for anything more.
I could not be happier with this shop. I had three cross-stitch pieces of varying sizes framed here and the results are very impressive. The owner, Cindy, specializes in cross-stitch framing, though she frames lots of paintings, mirrors, etc. as well. She was very helpful in selecting framing materials and has a great eye for composition, color, and texture. Though it can get a little pricey, it was worth every penny. Cindy knows her craft as well as anyone I've ever seen. Highly recommended!
I highly recommend Frame & Art Shop. Cindy was so helpful to work with and the pieces turned out beautiful. They are timely, professional, honest and great to work with.
