Local Custom Framing Store

We are professional yet local a mom and pop frame shop. We frame items for your home such as diplomas and wedding pictures. We also frame for corporation, such as framing patents, stock certificates and posters. We can scan, print and frame your items. Unlike big box stores we do not inflate our prices then offer a 70% discount coupon. We do not play pricing and coupon games. We offer fair and consistent pricing that makes sense. We care about our customers and strive to provide the best work and most helpful customer service because we value your business. The framers at our brick and mortar stores take pride in their work and want to make the custom framing process easy and fun for you! We can help if whether you are looking for museum quality framing, custom made frames, oval frames, or anything custom made.

Ashlee Harrison

“Mohommad is so helpful, friendly, and gave great advice on what framing to do. The pieces came out perfect. They are also quite reasonable with price.


Deborah Altman

“Mohammed has done a wonderful job framing several pieces for me since I discovered Big Apple earlier this year. Although it’s pricey (as is any custom frame shop), the turn-around is quick and the quality is excellent. They have a wide selection of frames and mats for a range of prices. Always a great experience and final product, definitely recommend.”


Michael Rayhill

“He provides reassurance, quality and kindness with every consultation. I’ve worked with him on many occasions and he has an extraordinary ability to meet impossible deadlines and is very accommodating to every budget. I’ve had a large range of different projects that he has tailored to perfection. Every time I walk out of Big Apple Art Gallery, I know everything will be taken care of.”

Rachel Gerstein

“Mohammed is extremely knowledgable and easy to work with, and on top of all that, his prices are quite reasonable! I highly recommend his shop — he has been my go-to framer for several years now.”
