Custom Framing

Framing provides the best means to display, preserve, and enhance the beauty of your artwork and photos. Our custom framing services are always tailored to the individual needs of each client and the unique character of each piece, and we never sacrifice quality. We exclusively use premium frame products made of solid wood or solid metal, and our broad selection of frame and mat styles pair easily with any piece or environment.

Conservation Methods

At Petoskey Print Studio, we pride ourselves on using only the highest quality conservation materials and methods to protect and preserve your beloved pieces according to industry best practices. Other frame shops take a one-size-fits-all approach to photos and artwork; many of the chain stores will dry mount everything from movie posters to diplomas to original paintings, leaving them permanently adhered to a board and decreasing any value they might have had. 

While dry mounting is a traditional framing process we still use for many projects today, we at Petoskey Print Studio know that every piece is different and requires a framing solution that works best for its particular needs. That is why we offer free framing consultations in-store to determine the most appropriate process for framing your piece so that it stays safe and looks great for years to come.

Photography Mounting and Matting

The best way to protect your photography and printed fine art from curling and bending is by mounting it to an archival board. Our heat-activated adhesive board provides for edge-to-edge adhesion of your work, and all our materials are acid-free, pH-balanced, and conservation grade. Accompany your mounted art with a mat and it’s ready for a frame. Make use of our premium custom framing services, our readymade frame options, or bring a frame from home; no matter what, we’ll make sure your piece is properly fitted.

Framing Samples

Our framing department sources from Michigan and national businesses for solid wood and metal frames. We have many samples in our Downtown Petoskey storefront for your convenience. We ask that you visit us for a design and consultation session for your framing projects.

We offer many framing options from multiple vendors including Larson-Juhl, Roma Moulding, and International Moulding.

If you find a frame molding that you like, please take a screenshot of it and/or notate the item number and bring it with you during your consultation.) All our mats and mounting materials are acid-free and conservation grade, and we offer the best glass coverings such as Tru Vue’s Conservation Clear, Museum, and Conservation Acrylic products.
