Serving the Fox Cities for over 25 Years

We have been providing professional custom framing since 1989. Today, our business continues to grow by offering the largest selection of affordable and high-end frames, artwork, and unique giftware and home accessories.

For over two decades, customer service has been the centerpiece of our business. No project is too difficult, unusual, big or small. From consultation to installation, we are confident you will like what you see.

Karen Hertz-Sumnicht founded the business based on one simple premise, which was to help the customer visualize creative solutions for their framing and artwork projects.

After 20 years in downtown Appleton, we moved to our new location with expanded showroom and parking in July 2012.

Our staff of four talented design specialists is recognized as the best in the business with more than 100 years of combined industry experience specializing in conservation framing, interior design and installation.

Let our highly trained team help you through every step of the process. Impeccable attention to detail along with our expertise is what sets us apart and keeps our customers coming back. Visit us today or make an appointment with one of our design specialists, call 920-734-7710 or email
