For those who have spent extra time at home recently, many have tackled home or personal projects that have been nagging them for months or maybe even years. Some have taken up a new hobby or skill, such as puzzles, needle-art, or creating other kinds of art. Others have discovered treasures previously forgotten that they now want to preserve and display.
Colbert Custom Framing & Art Printing is open by appointment and ready to act on all those special projects. Stephanie Colbert Randall, third-generation owner, and her staff welcome the opportunity to participate in your life stories through custom framing and art printing.
All work is done in-house from start to finish. “We take care of everything from beginning to end to make the process creative, smooth, and enjoyable,” said Colbert Randall. Such projects may include:
Artwork – Needle art, puzzles, paintings, fine art, photography, etc.
Collections – Professional sports memorabilia, souvenirs from past travels, high school or college athletic items, concert posters, movie paraphernalia, etc.
Family heirlooms – Baptismal gowns, flatware, military memorabilia, tools or business cards from a past career, etc.
Family photos, slides, and negatives – Colbert’s can scan and save the high-resolution scans to a disk for record-keeping. Editing and printing services also available.
Vacation photos – Images from a camera or cell phone can be printed as artwork in custom sizes on canvas or another medium to feature in the home to remember great times with family and friends.
Frames that need updated artwork - Colbert’s can custom print art to fit in existing frames from clients’ own images or public domain imagery.
Artwork that needs a refresher - Colbert’s can re-mat and/or re-frame to update the look.
