Story Of A Frame

The creation of a Michaels custom frame starts with great ideas. Our design team draws inspiration from around the world to invent collections with on-trend styles and state-of-the-art construction. The combination of multifunctional design, original accents, authentic materials, and in-house production is the true beauty of Michaels custom frame mouldings. Since we have integrated internal design, product and delivery, you have direct access to artisans and designers.

The designers' blueprints are used in production when the raw lumber is shipped to the Michaels manufacturing facility in North Carolina, a regional crossroads of furniture makers, carvers and woodworkers. There, teams of in-house craftsmen work with their chisels and saws to create an original frame that is as unique as the home in which it will hang.

The wood is hand cut to your specifications after it has been through stamping, engraving, sanding, sealing and other refinement processes. Each frame is then shipped from the hands of an artisan to your local Michaels store. Once there, the frame is paired with pigmented archival mats and American-made glass to create museum-grade preservation for your artwork, which has never left the security of the local Michaels custom framing center.

The ultimate joy that is brought by a Michaels custom frame is the protection of memories: family photographs that commemorate once-in-a-lifetime moments, diplomas that recall late-night study sessions, or artwork that reflects countless hours of dedication. When illuminated in a Michaels custom frame, these moments become heirloom pieces that are passed down through the generations.
