Custom Picture Framing

Art Sourcing
We offer several nationally known poster catalogues for customers to peruse and order from.  We sell original art created by local distributors often selling below the prices offered by art galleries. 

Wall Décor
Frames First offers beautifully framed images for sale directly off our walls.  Our best sellers are landscapes of Chicago sold at significant discount for quick sale.

Large Format Digital Printing
Our Epson 9600 prints digital images up to 43” wide and as long as is needed.  We work from Photoshop and charge close to what our competitors in the copying industry charge.

Photograph Restoration
We can bring your photos back to life and even color them at your request.

Mirror Revitalization
See how we can transform your frameless glued-on mirrors into works of art!

Ready Made Frames
On any given day, we have ready made frames available from 5x7 up to 18x24 at half off retail.  A great deal is made when these are used.

Business to Business Framing
Over half of our business entails business-to-business framing.  We make it easy for the business person to deal with framing and, based on the order, offer discounts as well.

Rush Service
We normally complete frame orders in a week to ten days, depending on when materials come in from suppliers.  However, we keep some moulding, mat board and glazing in stock so we can help customers with a deadline shorter than this.  Overnight framing is not uncommon.

Parts Cutting
We cut only what you need.  If you just need a mat or glass or frame Frames First staff will custom cut it –if possible while you wait.
