Custom picture framing at the Hall of Frames is an extraordinary experience! It's where creative design ideas and talented craftsmanship come together to transform your artwork or memorabilia into a unique framed display that will hang on your wall for years to come!
Here's how we make this experience come to life.
Who do you trust more than the family? The Hall of Frames has been locally owned and operated by the Kogan family since 1975. As Arizona's home grown picture frame company, we care about what you are framing and promise to take care of your artwork and memorabilia as if it were our own. Each custom picture framing project is designed, fabricated, and completed locally with expert quality and in a time efficient manner.
We understand that it all starts with your art! It really deserves to be complimented with just the right frame and mat combination. At the Hall of Frames, the Custom Framing possibilities are endless! With an overwhelming 4,500 custom frame choices, an extensive variety of mat colors and textures, and superb glazing choices, we have a selection that you won't be able to find anywhere else and suits all budgets.
You Name It; We'll Frame It! With over 35 years of custom framing experience, we have acquired the time honored techniques and education necessary to frame anything. Between the frame, mats, backing and glass, there are thousands of combinations. Our designers are here to offer you their professional design experience, and suggest the materials and techniques necessary to best protect and display your artwork.
It's the "Behind the Scenes Work that Counts". When it comes to expert craftsmanship and quality assurance, it's our forte. Every step in the picture framing process in taken with great care; from the inspection of the picture frame moulding, perfectly mitered corners, meticulously cut mats, and all the way to spotlessly clean glass, every effort is made to ensure that your framing project is completed with perfection.
Please think twice about having your precious artwork and memorabilia framed at a craft store. We agree that they are great for hobby items, home décor, and fabrics. However, custom picture framing is not a craft. It's an extraordinary experience where creative design ideas and talented craftsmanship come together to transform your artwork or memorabilia into a unique framed display that will hang on your wall for years to come! Here is some of the BIG DIFFERENCES:
There is nothing wrong with having an abundance of design options at your fingertips. However, not having enough options can be frustrating. When you transport your own artwork and memorabilia to a store, the last thing you want to do is re-transport it because you can't find something you like. Especially in the Arizona summers! Visit a Hall of Frames where we offer over 4,500 custom frame choices, 800 mat colors and styles, and 8 glazing options. Visit a craft store and you are lucky to find only 500 custom frame choices, 300 mat colors and styles, and 5 glazing options. We're not saying that having more options is necessary, but merely that options lead to creative freedom, and creativity leads to great picture frame designs.
Picture frame design is where it all starts. It's where you visually pick the design elements such as the right frame and mat styles, and where you aesthetically pick the type of mount and glass that keeps your art safe. Many of these decisions require professional advice. At the Hall of Frames all of our designers have made picture framing their career and approach each picture framing project with passion and years of experience.
We love what we do, and we do it all day. However, most craft stores staff their picture frame areas with part time framers, stock workers, and cashiers, most of which don't have any design background or education about framing. This doesn't mean that these employees can't design or be creative, but wouldn't you rather have a professional designer working on your precious artwork or memorabilia?
It's the "behind-the-scenes action" that makes your picture framing come to life. Once you design it, someone must frame it. The question is, "Who is framing it?" At the Hall of Frames all artwork and framing is done on-site. Our craftsmen are trained in the most cutting edge techniques, and draw upon over 35 years of picture frame experience to make sure your project receives our patented 7-step picture framing process.
When you visit a craft store, all of the framing fabrication is outsourced out-of-state at large manufacturing centers. The completed product is then sent back to the store level where a part-time framer, stocker, or maybe even a cashier put on the final touches. In order for your framed artwork and memorabilia to last a lifetime, the craftsmanship in the inside must be genuine.
There is an unfortunate misconception that craft stores are a "better deal" than, or of "comparable quality" to your local Hall of Frames or other independent picture frame shops. But here are the facts:
Most craft stores have raised their "retail prices", or created "Package Framing Deals" in order to make their margins after the large discounts. They hang red 50-60% off signs year-long, and send weekly blowout coupons. That's ok, but did you notice that the same signs are up every day, and the coupons are the same discount week after week? We question that if it is a “real deal”, why does it go on every week, all year long? If it's always 60% off, then is it really a "deal" or just the "standard price"? Our only answer to this is that if you think a "deal" is too good to be true, than it usually is. If you want the best deal, sign up for our free framing discount and rewards club!
At the Hall of Frames, we promise to give you the best custom or picture framing deal in the market, and we refuse to raise our prices for deceptive, year-long sales. We offer a price match guarantee where we will meet and beat any competitor's price with comparable framing materials. Visit one of our stores for details!
