What is the Framer's Market?
Framer's Market is a full-service
framing shop that has been designing custom frames and enhancing
art since 1981. Their building is located at 807 West Springfield
Avenue in Champaign and houses both a frame shop and art
gallery. The frame shop's main focus is creating the
highest quality custom framing available for individuals and
commercial accounts. Over the past
several years, owner Rob
DeLong (shown above) and his talented staff have also
developed a fine art gallery that features and represents a nice
selection of extremely talented local artists.
The frame moulding selection offered by
the Framer's Market is unmatched by any shop in downstate Illinois.
Mouldings offered range from $7.00 to $200.00 per foot. Hand
carved wood and Italian gold and silver leaf mouldings are just
a few of the vast finishes offered at Framer's Market. Matting
selections range from acid-free museum mats, linens and suede
to fine oriental silks. Glazing options

What else should I expect
to find at the Framer's Market?
When you come to Framer's Market,
you get the benefit of more than 70 years combined experience
framing everything from art prints to baptismal gowns. For the
frame designers at Framer's Market, custom framing is a career,
not a part-time job. At Framer's Market, we see your framing
project as a work of art. You'll get only the highest quality
frames and the most enduring mats, glass and mounting materials.
With the tens of thousands of items we've framed, we've never
had a customer leave unsatisfied. And we promise, you won't either.
As owner Rob DeLong says:
"Art is meant to be
Whether it's an original oil painting by your favorite artist,
or a picture your child drew in second grade.
If it's something you're going to want to look at for years to
we want it to be something that makes you smile."
Sounds great! What should
I do first?
When you bring in your artwork
or object to be framed, we'll put our design experience to work
for you and create a "work of art" you'll be proud
to display Do you have an idea of what you want, but not a clear
vision of your finished piece? Maybe it's just a color, a texture,
or even a feeling. Bring us your thoughts, your fabrics, your
paint chips, or even a throw pillow. . Store hours are Tuesday
through Friday 9:30-5:30 and Saturday 10:00-4:00. Appointments
after hours, at your home or at your business can also be arranged.
