Family History Becomes a Family Heirloom

Family History Becomes a Family Heirloom
Most American families came from another country, whether it was recent, or many generations ago.  The longer time passes, the easier it is to forget your roots.  At THE FRAME STUDIO, we recently had a customer come in with his grandparents passports, that showed their routes into this country.  He wanted to have something to remind him of his family's past, so we created this custom framing package to showcase his finds.  The subtle "Suntan" mat coloring helps lessen the yellowed appearance of the documents, while the dark maple frame brings in the antique finish to pull the pieces together. ...

Framing Greats

Framing Greats
One of our favorite framing clients - and very good friends - recently sent us something in the mail.  This special client has a very interesting and extensive art collection, and appreciates the importance of the perfect frame for the perfect piece of art. We understand why this article got his attention.  The article is about a framing star named Eli Wilner. Many people in the regular world, know very little about life in the framing world.  Did you know we have framing conventions?  It's kind of like Comic Con without the costumes.  If Eli Wilner were to show up at one, we at The Frame S...

The Material Girl – Immortal

The Material Girl – Immortal
Something pretty "vogue" recently crossed our counter at The Frame Studio. Cody and Gary, owners of The Dive Bar on Ocean Blvd., brought in a guitar that they bought at a charity event that supported Big Brothers and Big Sisters. The guitar was signed by Madonna on her Hard Candy Tour. (A guitar you ask?  "Madonna doesn't play guitar . . . she just sings and dances" you say?  But, oh yes she did!  She played guitar in her first band The Breakfast Club, so it's kosher!) Cody and Gary knew they had to display such a find at the bar - you can't keep something that cool to yourself - so we chos...

The Little Tow Boat That Could

The Little Tow Boat That Could
Kim, is a frequent and favorite client of Little's Photography. She has done underwater shoots with her children and had them framed at The Frame Studio. She recently brought in a sentimental piece for framing. It was an old poem with drawings that her mother-in-law found in an old book. The poem was written by Kim's husband Jim when he was little. Jimmy's teacher had asked he and his classmates to write about something they were interested in; he chose to write about tow boats. He even illustrated his writing with a nice little drawing of a tow boat. Now fast forward to today, and Jim owns hi...

Art From the Heart

Art From the Heart
At THE FRAME STUDIO we meet so many talented artists who bring their work to us to be custom framed. This week we were very lucky to meet Aimee Hedman, a young artist, just starting out and who is very luck to be showing this week as part of a Student/Teacher Collaboration at Art Basel in Miami. Aimee's art comes from her heart. These pieces are of her mother, a former opera singer, who passed away on 2011. Aimee carved from wood a "stamp" and then stamped the images over the sheet music of her mother's favorite opera scores. She chose contemporary black frames with black matting to h...

Good, Better, Best :  What should you invest?
At THE FRAME STUDIO we understand that custom framing is a very personal thing.  Each person sees things differently, each persons home is designed to their own taste and style is what you want it to be.  Additionally each person places a different value on the objects they bring into their life, including the frames that surround them. We have always worked closely with our clients to put together top of the line, custom frames that suit the art and the atmosphere where it resides for generations. To help our clients understand their options we created a display that features three ways...
