Our Work

Custom Frames for Artists, Collectors, Galleries, and More

We make custom frames for works of art on paper, paintings, and other objects such as scrolls and tiles. We are often asked to come up with special display solutions for our clients, which we welcome. We build pedestals and small cases of various kinds as well.

Art Services

We offer many services to support our clients. Our Registration department contributes to the ease and security of working with us—by picking up and delivering art in our truck, preparing condition reports on the works in our care, coordinating with allied professionals such as conservators and art handling companies, and providing fine-arts insurance. And our designers are available for on-site consultation.

We are happy to pick up and drop off your artwork in our insured, alarmed, and air-conditioned truck.

Bark Frameworks Secure Delivery Truck

We are now pleased to offer art installation and storage to our framing clients. Ready to receive your artwork? After we deliver to your business or residence, our experienced art installers will collaborate with you to mount your newly-framed art. Our trained technicians will take the utmost care when handling your art, making this process as low-risk as can be. Not ready to have your artwork delivered? Simply leave it with us — your art will be stored in the same facility where we frame, minimizing the risk brought on by art transport. Email for details and rates.
