Police Officer (2)


A plexi box is just that . . . a box made out of clear acrylic (or plexiglass) into which the object is mounted for maximum visibility, as above. In many cases, the mounting of the object presents more of a challenge than the box itself, with the conflicting criteria of being minimally invasive, visually integrated, and yet sufficiently strong to support the weight of the object over time. Framers are not magicians, but we can be very creative! Above we used a plexi-box cover to account for the added depth of placing the police cap horizontally in order to display it properly.

Photo Printing and Framing

Your photos are more than just images. They are precious memories that you and your family get to reminisce about for years to come. With precious memories you want to relive and remember, ensure that they have an added touch with a beautifully crafted frame. No matter what your framing vision entails, trust the experts at The Frame Shop to get the job done.

For many of us, our phone is our camera. Phones these days take some fabulous pictures, and we take our phones everywhere. Have a great photo on your phone that you would love to print and frame? We can print up to 16 x 20, depending on the photo quality. Email it to us at Let us know what size you would like it and when you will be in to design your frame. We'll have it printed and waiting for you. Or design it yourself on our Design Studio page and send it to us for a quote.

Glass Replacement

If the glass in your frame breaks due to those misleading command strips, a move gone wrong or maybe an earthquake, bring it in so that we can replace the glass for you.

Decided you don't like the glare or the clarity of the glass in your frame, we can upgrade it for you.
