Frame Works has always been about creativity. We’ve been around long enough to have expertise in framing just about anything you can think of, from paintings, photos, children’s works of art, to shovels, flags, jerseys, and memorabilia. We say – you make the memories and we’ll preserve them. Speaking of memories, we’ve created a lot of them here. When we opened our doors on June 1, 1978 we offered frame-it-yourself so that you the customer could have your input every step of the way. It was a way of saving you money. We no longer offer that at our Frame Works location but we do at The Frame Outlet on Kerr Ave.

Because we offered the frame-it-yourself service we stocked any type of framing material or matting you needed right in our stores. This practice has continued and truly benefits you. We have rooms of molding, mats and glass in stock ready to help your project look perfect. Along with that we have a staff with over 170 years combined experience which means you get time tested input on your creative decisions. We listen to your needs and are happy to offer suggestions to make sure our finished project enhances your dream.

Today we have 2 stores Frame Works and Frame Outlet. At The Frame Outlet we have close-out framing materials of exceptional quality, readymade frames and years of experience to help you with your project. We also offer digital imaging. So if you’re an artist and need to create prints of your work we’re your place. We do fine art scanning, photo editing and precise color correction, large format printing and art reproduction. Give us a call and we’ll give you a quote on one print or many. We also restore old photos to clean them up and give them new life.

Over the years we have been an active part in the film industry here in Wilmington, NC. Our quick turnaround time has saved the day for many property masters who need art reproduced for sets – right now. We are a phone call away and work as long as needed to get the job done on time. Give us a call or stop in. If it’s your first time in one of our stores, you’ll be greeted by knowledgeable expert. If you’ve been in our stores before, you’ll be greeted by an old friend.
