Welcome to The Framemakers!

Welcome to The Framemakers!

We're Central Maine's premier picture framing shop.

Quality is what you want for your cherished keepsakes and what you can expect from the Framemakers. Our vast frame and mat combinations offer preservation with a flair of beauty. Posters, photographs, paintings, diplomas, child's drawings, sports jerseys, and shadowbox items are our specialties. Stop by and watch us work our magic! We can accommodate you for your personal taste, budget, and time, sometimes in as little as 24 hours depending on materials in stock. Also check our our selection of ready-made frames.

Our Art Gallery

Are you an artist who would like to display your work? Gallery space is available for two-month rotations inside our store and storefront windows with vast Main Street exposure. Come share what makes this community great: fine art by local artists. Visit our Gallery Page for info and upcoming events!

Also follow us on our Facebook Page.

2019 Summer Block Party

Summer has begun at The Framemakers! This show is open to all artists of all techniques and skills. Not an artist? This is a good way to start! We encourage participation from the entire community, kids and adults. Submission date is June 29, 2019. Learn more about this show and see some past years' submissions.

Anytime is a great time to frame photos!

Got that special moment that's too precious to hide away in an album? We have many preservation options available from ready-made frames to budget items to custom plaque projects!


Graduates of Central Maine high schools: Now you can order a custom frame in school colors right off this website! Take it home and insert a diploma and photo yourself, or have us do it. OR visit us in person with your graduation mementos, and we can customize a nice presentation from the ground up!

Just Married

A wedding photograph and a classy custom frame from The Framemakers makes a perfect couple!


The Framemakers is located on Main Street with additional access from the Concourse, in beautiful downtown Waterville Maine. We have two entrances, one on the Main Street side and one one the East Concourse side. Both are marked by a maroon awning with a large white "F".

From Interstate 95: Take Exit 130 and turn onto Upper Main Street/Route 104 South. Follow Main Street South for two miles. The Framemakers will be on your right.
