Artists Frame Service, the largest picture frame store in the country, recently added a River North location at 433 North Wells in heart of the River North Design District.
Artists Frame Service – River North will offer inspired custom framing services that have defined the company’s standard of excellence over the past 40 years, just as their flagship showrooms in Lincoln Park and Highland Park have done. The store will also offer exciting new products including a new gallery frames collection and gallery wall packages, in addition to professional digital photo and art printing, a dynamic variety of photo frames, impressive local art, custom mirrors, and more.
Passionate about offering an unmatched selection of design-driven, diverse products, Artists Frame Service sources unique, handcrafted frames from around the world and manufactures their own custom frames right here in Chicago. Their team of expert career framing consultants, most of whom have art backgrounds, provide customers with personalized service helping them find pieces that speak to their individual style and aesthetic preferences at a variety of price points.
The new River North showroom will offer express digital printing, providing customers with a lightning fast print and frame experience. Photo and gallery frames can be purchased online, at any Artists Frame Service location, or customers can work with in-house consultants to add a preferred mat, change glass and fit their piece. Additionally, the artistic team can design, frame, and install custom gallery walls to fit any space or style. A selection of unique pre-designed gallery wall packages are available starting at $149, ranging in styles from triptychs, stacked, grids and organic designs in a variety of sizes and finishes. Completely custom gallery walls can also be designed using Artists Frame Service’s selection of gallery frames or any of its thousands of custom mouldings.
Locally-curated art will also be a focal point of the River North showroom, featuring Chicago-centric photos from Tracey Capone, unique screenprints from Sorry Design Studio and more. A gallery wall of art by local artist Josh Young Designs will be available for purchase. Young will also be providing a set of prints exclusive to Artists Frame Service. Along with Young’s prints, the River North location will continually source and rotate collections of art pieces available for purchase from local artists.
