Thank You for choosing Framers Workshop for your custom picture framing.
After 40 years and many thousands of custom frames, Kris and Rolf are excited to announce that we will be retiring from Framer’s Workshop this summer.
We have had the privilege of framing for you over the last 4 decades, some of you occasionally and some of you surprisingly often.
A real joy for us has been working with you to design something special that you will get to enjoy every day. We have been able to to tempt you with some of the finest frames and frame makers in the world. We have covered the gamut from contemporary hardwoods and the finest handmade, custom carved and gilded historical frames and even common moulding frames. Our matting and glazing options are the most complete available. We have brought you true custom frames, frames that are made to properly present and protect your artwork.
Thank you for bringing us your most challenging projects and allowing us to frame some of the most beautiful and rare artwork and objects from around the world.
We have always insisted on framing your art to high conservation and preservation standards. Our policy has always been to give more than is expected and to always protect your artwork.
What tremendous fun we’ve had.
Framer’s Workshop in Scottsdale will be closing its doors this summer.
We were fortunate enough to purchase our building more than 20 years ago and now have sold it for development.
I will be turning 69 later this year and Kris is 66, and we need to spend time enjoying our lives instead of working six days a week.
Kris and I have lived frugally, saved and with the building sale are now able to retire comfortably. This will enable us to catch up on traveling and allow us to spend much more time with our daughter and our amazing grandchildren as well as chasing our many interests and passions.
Unfortunately, we have no-one to leave Framers Workshop to, so we have decided to close the business and hopefully leave you with fond memories of working with us.
We’re not quite done yet!
