Custom Framing


Custom framing is an important part of our business at The Antiquarium. We are able to create beautiful and decorative framing concepts for a customer's painting, print, photograph or other items they might want on display. We offer many different kinds of alternative framing solutions like shadowboxes, double glass, or other unique and interesting creations.

We only use the highest standards of archival framing in order to preserve and maintain the integrity of the item. Our moulding selection ranges from simple and basic to the ornate and high-end. We create beautiful French mats by hand which include everything from single, double, triple matting, line work, filets and more. We are meticulous craftspeople who love to see smiles on the faces of satisfied customers.

If you live in the Houston area, we invite you to stop by and talk with us about framing possibilities for your art or other treasures. You'll find many ideas on our walls.

If you purchase an antique print or map from our online gallery, and are interested in having us frame it before shipping, we can discuss possibilities and budget over the phone. We will come up with several design solutions, photograph them, and send them to you by mail, email, or fax, along with our quote. If you are happy with our design and price, we'll go ahead after receiving your deposit of one-half. Otherwise, we'll continue to work until we come up with a design and price that are satisfactory.
