We follow Denver’s COVID guidelines and mask mandates.
Businesses are in a quandary with the recent announcement that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a mask in certain settings, as the state’s vaccination rate is only 50%. Some customers will be comfortable without masks being required, and some will be more comfortable in an environment where others are masked.
The comfort, health, and safety of our customers and staff is of paramount importance, so we have chosen to adopt a hybrid policy.
As of May 17, 2021:
- We no longer require customers make an appointment for a design session. Because we have two design areas, we can work with two customers at a time. Since reopening after the city enforced COVID closure last year, we have been extremely busy, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment to avoid having to wait for a design area to become available. Simply call 303-394-3362 to make an appointment. Please note that as of June 7, we’re not offering design sessions on Mondays, only Tuesday – Saturday.
- The first 2 hours of business each morning (9-11 a.m.) are now designated for masked customers only. Our staff will also wear masks during this time. If you prefer to be the only design session at one time, please make an appointment and notify us of that request.
- We will continue to ask that you not come into the store if:
- you’re feeling unwell; or
- you have been in close contact with someone in the last 10 days who has Covid and you are not fully vaccinated.
This is a fluid situation, so we advise you to check our website or Google listing for the current policy before coming to the store. Current guidelines will also be posted on front and rear doors which will remain locked for now. Please ring the bell for entry.
We ask for your respectful cooperation with this policy. We understand the desire to get back to normal as well as the desire to remain healthy and safe until the pandemic is over.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.

We frame everything and repair & restore wooden frames.
Our creative artisans have the most extensive and varied experience of any custom frame store in the Rocky Mountain region. We frame everything from children’s art to museum quality fine art and everything in between. We can handle large and unusual jobs that others can’t, but we frame what they can too. Whether you’re looking for fine art framing, poster framing, jersey framing, portrait framing, photograph framing, diploma or certificate framing, custom mirror framing, 3 dimensional objects including sports memorabilia framed in shadow boxes or acrylic display cases, conservation framing, gallery style framing, contemporary, modern or period frames or even just canvas stretching or glass replacement we can help you. Think of us as the A-Z of everything to do with framing. We also repair and restore frames.
We’re here to help you navigate the myriad of choices and stay within budget.
Custom framing can be a little overwhelming since there are numerous choices for every element. Not to worry – our designers will explain everything, so you can make an educated decision within your budget. We invite you to visit us for a no-cost design session.
Our Denver custom frame shop is one of the largest in the area; 5,000 sq. ft of design, workshop, and studio space including spaces for gilding and frame restoration. We have a state-of-the-art spray booth for custom finishes and gilding. We believe that the best products should be well made and built to last. That’s why we build everything on-site so that we can control the quality of each job. We’re so proud of our quality that we guarantee the materials (against manufacturer defects) for as long as you own the piece.
When you bring your framing project to us, you expect the best, and that is exactly what you will get from start to finish. We organize, design, and create complete framing solutions from your treasures. From creative ideas to hanging hardware, we provide innovative design and quality workmanship, so you can enjoy your piece for years.
What else do we do?
- custom frame mirrors
- build custom display boxes (wood and plexiglass) and shelving
- source art works
- offer prints, ceramic and bronze sculptures, leather furniture and accessories hand-made in Peru, and antique frames
Pickup and Delivery.
Have a really large piece or multiple pieces of art that won’t fit in your vehicle? No problem; we offer free pick up and transportation to our Denver custom framing store for your design session and then delivery back to you once everything is complete (10-mile radius from our store – call us for pricing for other locations).
We’re located in Denver’s City Park West neighborhood on the northwest corner of East Colfax Ave. and York St. In addition to metered parking on Colfax, free parking is available at the rear of the building. The car park is accessed either directly from York St (southbound) or from the alley off Colfax that runs alongside DC Pie restaurant. Our workshop can be accessed through the rear door (it’s purple so you can’t miss it) from that car park.
