As an artist, when you’re looking for a framer, you are probably much more selective than other people. You want to see a lot of frame samples, and you want them in stock so that you can get your work framed quickly if necessary. You want people who have been in business for a long time, with a staff of qualified professional framers. it would be almost too good to be true if those framers were artists themselves, people who love to take on a challenge.

The Artful Framer has been in the same Paoli Pike location for 38 years...enough time to win “Best of” awards year after year. During that time, owner Nancy Schwab has helped 11 staff members become Certified Professional Framers. Just as importantly, they are warm and caring people who love what they do. You’ll find thousands of samples on display and 300
frames in stock, and Nancy will tell you that there is nothing the Artful Framer can’t frame!
