Three years ago Erick and Miguel, two artists with studios in the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center on the Lower East Side, joined forces to create an artist focused framing and canvas stretching business in the building. "We opened our shop with one plan: make quality custom frames and stretchers with the same amount of care and soul that the awesome artist puts into the piece itself".

From this beginning, our client base has grown to include dozens of talented artists, exceptional galleries, and organizations here on the LES, throughout New York City and even internationally. We’ve also expanded to include our delivery and installation service Art Delivery Van, as well as our brand new Frames and Stretchers Factory in the Gowanus / Red Hook area of Brooklyn.
