QUALITY PICTURE FRAMING SINCE 1996
I started Mercury Framing with a simple idea - create a unique space where artists and art-lovers could find quality picture framing in an atmosphere where creativity and a passion for art could be shared. Since 1996, Mercury Framing has provided the finest custom picture framing to artists, collectors, galleries and lovers of art. Our creative, experienced and friendly staff of certified picture framers and designers believe that your work, from finger painting to fine art, should be handled with the utmost care and respect, and framed to enhance its beauty and preserve it for years to come.
Visit our gallery and showroom to experience what makes working with us such an enjoyable experience. Our incredible selection of unique mouldings is suited to fit any style or budget.
We're artists ourselves so we know how important the preservation and proper presentation of your work is.
We take our craft seriously and believe that there is a unique relationship that exists between the artist and the framer.
We've tackled some challenging and unique projects. We creatively combine design with technical expertise to deliver one-of-a-kind framing.
A frame is more than a way to attach art to the wall.
Moulding is design and architecture blended to visually compliment and structurally protect the work it contains. We're artist and artisans and will work with you to select the perfect fram from our extensive collection of mouldings from Bella, Larson Juhl, Picture Woods, Roma, and more.
Picture framing glazing is more than a piece of glass.
From conservation and museum glass to framing grade acrylic, we have the right TruVue products to provide the appropriate level of protection and visual clarity for the most discerning art patron.
MATTING & MOUNTING
The right matting and mounting is an important part of the presentation and preservation of your art.
Our framers have the design and technical expertise to help you select the right material to visually enhance your work and ensure it is properly secured, preserved, and protected. Mercury Framing uses only the highest quality materials from Crescent and Nielsen Bainbridge.
Artists, collectors, and galleries trust Mercury Framing.
The right materials and framing techniques are essential to the proper preservation your work. Our certified, experienced framers work collaboratively with you to find the right solutions to your creative framing projects.

There is a beautiful creative collaboration that goes on between customer, designer and framer. That mutual creative energy is one of the most satisfying parts of my job. I enjoy working with people at all different stages of art acquisition, artists getting ready for their first show, all the way to collectors and museums.
Art is a huge part of my life. I have always loved creating since I was a child. When I began working in the world of custom framing I fell in love with the opportunities it provides. It is a true delight to work with clients and help them design a piece they will cherish for years to come.
My favorite part of my job is getting to experience a clients reaction when they see their art transformed through framing. I’ve been an artist my whole life - I love meeting artists and younger locals who are just beginning to dip a toe into the world of custom framing. I enjoy the challenge of helping someone discover their personal design style.
