We will be reopening on Saturday, May 9.
Initially, we will be accepting new work by appointment only. Working by appointment keeps you, our clients, and staff safer since only one design session will take place at a time. To set up an appointment please call 303-394-3362. If you get voice mail someone will call you back to set up the appointment.
In addition to frequent disinfecting of surfaces, our designers will maintain a 6 foot distance and wear face masks during the design sessions. In accordance with the new Denver regulations, all clients must wear face protection inside the store.
Pickup of finished work can be contactless. Call us to set up a time for pickup (you can pay any outstanding balance during the call) and then park outside our rear door in the parking spaces set aside for customers when you arrive. Let us know you’re there and we’ll bring out your finished pieces wrapped in foam and we’ll place them in your vehicle.
We’ll also be trying out virtual design sessions. If you prefer not to come into the store, you can email us an image of your art (with the dimensions) along with any ideas you have about the framing (including budget) and any finished size constraints. We’ll send you back 2 or 3 design ideas for discussion. Once we have an agreed design we’ll arrange for you to drop off the art and pay the deposit and we’ll have your art framed in about 2-3 weeks. Call us at 303-394-3362 if you’d like to do a virtual design session.
We appreciate your understanding during this unusual time. We wish you all well.

Our staff of highly-qualified, experienced framing professionals are praised for their superb craftsmanship and unique designs. Design options are virtually limitless as we have the largest and most varied selections of mouldings in the region (over 5,000), including our own line of welded steel frames. We also create high quality, hand-carved, gilded, stained, custom finish closed corner frames through our sister company, Dry Creek Gold Leaf Frame Makers, who are in the same workshop. Check out our closed-corner website.
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 DCPie restaurant. Our workshop can be accessed through the rear door (marked AUM) from that car park.
