Frame it Today and River Ridge Hardware was purchased in 1984 by Joe Stout and Brian Poirier and was sold to Larry Myers in 2017. Joe and Paula have passed their skills on to our current framers Paul and Jennifer. Joe and Paula are still available for consultations on more complex projects.
Years of experience allow us to come up with solutions for framing and mounting various objects and art, presentational ideas, and difficult picture hanging situations. Whether it's a simple frame job or a complicated shadowbox project, we can help you design something just the way you want it. Paula has worked in the shop since the very beginning and has a good understated sense of design. She has over 25 years of experience at the shop and is exceptional at shadowbox and needleart, not to mention original art.
Our shop has done so many unique pieces that we couldn't begin to show you here on this website. We want you to keep coming back so we make sure you have thoughtful "unrushed"design work and the best frame job possible at a comfortable price and in a timely fashion. We are able to do jobs quickly if you need but it generally takes from 10 days to 2 weeks depending on the time of year. We are busier during holiday seasons so bring your items in as soon as you can during those times.
We have a large selection of custom frame options with over one thousand wood and metal frame choices and hundreds of different types of mat boards in various colors, textures, and fabrics. From top of the line mouldings featured in high-end style magazines to other medium and lower priced lines of framing you are certain to find the right frame at the right price. We buy in volume and we know you will love our prices if you have shopped around at other custom framing shops. All matting is performed on a state of the art computerized mat cutter which ensures a perfect mat every time. We can do one mat or a thousand with precision. We also offer a selection of readymade frames and mats at 50% off everyday. Our frames are assembled right here in our store and not in China. Our readymade prices are very competitive and buying local helps keep local jobs.
