Hugh and Vicky Simmons, owners of Cardinal Frame & Art, have been assisting people with custom framing since they opened their first shop in 1974 on April Fool's Day.  Our goal is still the same--help the customer find the frame that best suits the artwork and looks great on the wall.  In order to do that we often will visit with folks and ask a few questions such as: " Do you know where this will hang?  What color is the wall?  Do you like traditional, contempory, antique, western or minimalist decor?"  Questions like these often help us determine exactly what you will like even if you have trouble expressing it yourself.

We will also stress the importance of acid free matting and conservation glass to protect and prolong the life of your artwork.  Then we will give you an estimate and tell you that we usually are able to complete the framing in a week or ten days.  We like to say that our prices are as low as we can live with, and our quality is always better that the big-chain stores.
