About Us

Our Story

Over 30 years ago, a small custom framing & print shop was started to help people make memories and media beautiful. As time went by, we added photography services to provide an end-to-end experience to help you produce almost any creative or professional vision.

We Make It Easy

Whatever it may be, we make it easy and affordable for you to tell a visual story that’s truly remarkable. We hope that, whether it be in your home, work, in a gallery, or online, the result is something you will always be  proud of.

At Picture Plus, we take the stress and hassle out of having to decide from a dizzying array of choices when it comes to frames, printing, and photography. We help our customers select a result they will be happy with whenever they look at their art and memories —now and for years to come.

What We Stand By

Make It Personal.

No two pictures, documents, or art pieces are ever the same. Every customer has a unique context and needs that deserve attention – we make sure the result is tailored to them.

Be Honest & Reliable.

As a shop with decades of experience working with business and government, we know exactly how important it is to deliver great work on time and on budget. We take pride in our craftsmanship, and if there is any fault or error, we strive to quickly correct it and learn from the experience.

Built To Last.

We use high-quality materials – from the wood and metal of our frames to the ink of our prints. We are dedicated to building lasting relationships with our customers and the things they buy from us.
