Custom Installations

What is custom framing?

Custom framing is the art of the hand crafting a frame to meet the needs of the art and its owner. The importance of using a custom picture framer such as Dan Randall at Sweetwater Picture Framing is his knowledge in the handling and preservation of art and artifact. Paper, metal, stone, canvas, wood, glass, clay, fabric, all have specific conservation requirements that we take into consideration as we create our framing design.

Color, style, and texture are our guides as we design for interior spaces or for the art itself. Sweetwater Picture Framing is current on all design trends and versed in past styles. Sweetwater Picture Framing has the Selection, The Style, and Affordability to make your project fit your needs, your style.

Sweetwater Picture Framing encourages questions. If we don’t know the answer we will do our best to find it and get back to you with the correct answer.


Sweetwater Picture Framing has over 1000 frames styles to choose from. These prices reflect mahogany, walnut, and pecan finish wood frames and frosted silver or black Gallery metal frames . Please inquire about other custom frame choices.

Personal inscriptions and engraved metal plaques are also available.
