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. We can accommodate you for your personal taste, budget, and time, sometimes in as little as 24 hours depending on materials in stock.

Follow us on Facebook for updates on new products, services, and exhibits!

Book Your Consultation Today!

Our custom framing consultations are by appointment only.

Each consultation is a 30 (or more, depending on the complexity and quantity of the project) minute one-on-one service.

A $25 deposit is required when booking online and will be applied to your order upon consultation completion.

Not certain what your project is going to need, or if your consultation will need more time? Perhaps you would prefer an online or phone consultation? Give us a call! We can help you decide what services will meet your requests.

What's New!

COVID-19 Policy as of June 7th, 2021

• All of our employees will continue to wear masks with the public.
• We will still require masks for everyone who comes in, and will provide guests with masks if needed. This is for both medical privacy purposes of our guests as well as out of courtesy and respect for those who have not been or cannot be vaccinated.
• We will have the showroom open for free-range retail shopping and gallery browsing. We do ask for visitors to be mindful of physical distancing, and we are setting a limit to how many people (currently 6) can be on the gallery floor at any given time.
• We will continue to require appointments for custom picture framing consultations; walk-in consultations are subject to availability. This helps with balancing our customer service part of the trade with production. Online and Phone consultations will continue to be offered.
• As per the relaxed guidelines by both Federal and Maine CDC, we will no longer require contact tracing information for browsing patrons.
