Tommy and Helendora are kind welcoming people and the four prints I had framed looked awesome. I uploaded photos of each print to show the differences in the projects. I appreciated their responsive in completing the job and am glad I went to a local frame shop to have the work done.

I can’t thank Tommy and Helendora enough for their outstanding work! I get pictures framed often but this project was different. I wanted to make a collage of all my Broadway paybills. Their expertise on framing helped make the final project outstanding! I would absolutely use them again!!

About Me

We are Helendora & Tommy Samuels.

We've been framing for 40 years. Tommy’s father was a huge influence in how he got started in the framing industry. We have learned how to do projects with Tommy’s father’s knack for troubleshooting in mind. As a result, there’s rarely a type of framing project we haven’t conquered! From large-scale corporate installations to framing your favorite print or poster, we pride ourselves in making the final product fit your personality, style, and sense of taste.

Framing is't just putting it in a frame, it's knowing how to perfect it and make it worth your time and money. It gives us great pleasure to work with people and to be able to bring smiles to their faces from framing. Framing is our gift and we love what we do.
