Most people have something to frame at some time.  In many homes, offices, galleries and museums framing fine art, collectibles, giclees, serigraphs, silkscreens, lithographs, maps, needlework,  photography, prints, posters and children's art is a reoccurring event.  Picture framing enhances the aesthetic features of art and collectibles.  Whether the medium of the original art is acrylic, mixed-media, oil, pen, pastel, pencil, crayon or watercolor, the frame adds to the values of the art.  Do you have something to frame today?  If so, this directory may help you find a suitable picture framing service.
