Custom Framing

Specialty Framing & Object Framing

We are able to preserve your specialty items for years to come! The Frame Up carries over 2,000 molding samples to choose from, we carry over 600 of these in stock at our location. This sets us apart from most frame shops who order supplies only after they receive an order from a customer. One benefit this gives us is the ability to do rush framing jobs in a matter of days rather than weeks.

Wide Selection

We buy from the top manufacturers all around the nation. This enables us to match or duplicate a customers frame no matter what part of the country it was framed. Many smaller shops only buy from regional suppliers which limits their access to different and unusual frame styles.



Sometimes the picture or piece of artwork that you want to frame has special needs. You may want something simple, or you may feel like something bolder. Here at the Frame Up, we know that some pieces need a custom design. That’s why we offer custom framing solutions in addition the standard sizes that are used in most applications. Whether it’s a poster, a work of art, or a piece of memorabilia that you want to save for posterity, our framing experts can help you with whatever you need.

These are some the items that we can frame, but we can do a lot more. We also have number of wood and metal framing styles that can be used to fit your needs. Some of them include but may not be limited to:


  • Gold and silver frames.
  • Frames with unique finishes.
  • Novelty frames that may be more colorful.
  • Anodized aluminum (metallic) frames.
  • Ornate frames.
  • Frames with a vintage finish.
  • Glass frames.


Dry mounting (which is the most popular solution) will make sure that the item has a flat and unwrinkled appearance under the glass, but we can do conservation mounting for valuable pieces that require some extra care. We can also use mats to create a space between the image and the frame, so it appears to be more defined when it’s hung on the wall. We have a number of colors that you choose from, so be sure to speak to someone at our framing store to find one that works for you.
