Your Art - whether you painted it, photographed it, or purchased it - is important to you. And that makes it important to us! For you and your guests, it is a reminder of a fond memory, a beloved family member, an achievement, or an object of beauty for your home. The selection of frames, mats, and even glass, sets the stage for your art and creates a mood in the room. Bright and energetic, soft and subtle, traditional, industrial, or eclectic, custom framing is the final step in the creation of art and helps to ensure that it will provide a lifetime of visual pleasure for you and your family.
Our frame shop is located inside Alabama Art Supply, a retail art supply store that has been helping artists, art students, teachers and hobbyists for over 50 years. Our framer is familiar with the art supplies you used to create your art and the materials and techniques to properly display and preserve your art.

Please note that due to supply chain issues, all mouldings may not be in stock, and some may even have unknown replenish dates. We will work with you, our vendors and our distributors to find the best match to the frame you select.
Due to the varieties of frames, mats, and glass or acrylic; as well as the current issues with the supply chain, it is difficult for us to create a quote for framing over the phone. Please call and schedule an appointment. Our framer will work with you to select the best components and use the best techniques to preserve and display your art.

Shadowbox frames are a great way to display 3-dimensional objects or art, as well as uniforms and clothing. Box insides can be black, white or covered with the same matboard as the back face. Shadowboxes range from 1" to 4" deep. Due to the weight and typical size of shadowboxes, we recommend Tru Vue Optium Museum Acrylic for a crystal clear, lighter weight, and shatter-proof display.
Orders for shadowbox frames may incur additional labor and materials charges when mounting fabric, uniforms, or 3-dimensional art.
Float frames for stretched canvas come in depths to fit standard, gallery-wrap, and 2-1/4" canvases. Facing widths range from 1/4" to 2", and the frames attach on the back of the canvas. Moulding lengths vary from 8 feet to 9 feet. If you need larger than 9 feet, please let us know.

Your art will come ready to hang with hardware appropriate for the size, shape and weight of your frame. For standard shaped frames under 40 pounds, attach a hanger on the wall ensuring that it is attached to a stud. Place the wire on the back of the frame securely over the hanger and double-check to ensure that the wire is being held by the hanger. Let go, step back and enjoy your handywork!
When pictures are large and weigh over 40 pounds, we will attach two D-ring hangers. There will not be wire on the back of your frame. Attach hangers on the wall so that each hanger holds a D-ring, and the weight of your framed art is dispersed between the hangers and the sides of the frame. Make sure each wall hanger is nailed or screwed into a stud. Drywall cannot hold the weight of the frame and may chip or break off. If your art is over 100 pounds, please contact us for other hanging options.
For framed art that is very wide but very short, like a panorama photograph, picture wire may show above the frame. We will mount Fletcher-brand No-Wire Hangers. These hangers support art up to 50 pounds. Mount the hangers onto the wall and slide the art onto the hangers. A level gauge is included to help you ensure that the art is level on the wall.
