"The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame."

G.K. Chesterton, Writer, Poet

When you choose to enhance your favorite piece of art with a custom frame, you bring together a union of art, matting, moulding, and special enhancements in a unique presentation which complements your tastes, your personality, and enhances your environment -- both home and office.

A beautiful piece of art, a special piece of memorabilia, a wedding invitation, or a hard-earned certificate of achievement should be framed and presented in a manner which not only does these items justice, but protects them from deterioration.

We carry among the largest moulding selections on the Big Island.  No job is too small or too big, and all our finished work is custom fit and tailored to suit you and your valuable pieces of art -- your taste, your environment, and your preservation needs.   

We strive to operate within the picture framing industry rules of conservation and archival methods by using only the highest quality framing materials.
