Regional Framing Competition WINNER
Our Ben Franklin Frame Shop framers participated in the Framers Inventory Framing Contest twice and won both times for their creativity and unique framing style! In 2014, they won 2nd prize, and in 2016 they won 1st prize. The contest included framers from 4 states: Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Alaska. As you can see, our Frame Shop has so much more to offer than cookie cutter frames! (check out this video where Brad shows you these two pieces)
Winner of 1st prize (2016): We used a textured mat that matched Ian McRae's photography. We took chunks and cut out pieces of that same textured mat and placed them in the interior to mimic the chunky rocks in the image.
Winner of 2nd prize (2014): Individual little pieces were cut and used in a mosaic pattern to create a solid frame. Colorful moulding pieces were also added to the frame itself to get the sense that the lines striking sideways were extending the art into the frame itself.

Unique Framing Ideas
Stop by our Frame Shop to see the latest custom frame designs by Brad, our talented Frame Shop manager. When something extraordinary is required, Brad will create a one of a kind frame with details that are only created by an artist.
Double-sided custom frame - What do you get when you mix photography by Ian McRae and custom frames built by our Frame Shop Manager, Brad Caplis? This beautiful double-sided standing frame that allows you to showcase two photographs. The rustic wooden frame echoes the nature photography and creates a perfect one-of-a-kind statement for your home.
Day of the Dead Framed Art - Mats can be so much more than a rectangle cut to frame your print. This Day of the Dead art is enhanced by a custom cut mat with many intricate shapes.
Custom designed wood frame - Each custom frame order is unique, and our team of designers can help you choose custom mouldings that enhance your art.
Stack-It-Up Moulding - Create a one-of-a-kind piece when you "Stack-It-Up" using your choice of mouldings. This is a great way to truly customize your design and create interest by combining different textures and patterns. Stacking provides an opportunity to tie the mouldings together with the color scheme of the art.
Faux-Granite Mat - Our Frame Shop framed this piece with a Whitman Larson-Juhl Custom Frames, added a fillet, a Couture Mat by Crescent and Museum Glass for longevity and less glare. The mat has depth and looks just like granite. This stunning art will stop you in your track! Thanks to our customer Karen Green for allowing us to share this.
