I am so happy I went her to frame some art I recently received! My pieces looks great, and the staff took care to make sure I got frames I was happy with. They are incredibly patient and have a good eye for what will work!

Stopped by today with a painting of my Mom in her wedding gown (she just turned 86) where the frame had deteriorated at the point of the hanging wire connection. Was hoping the frame could be repaired. The kind woman we worked with suggested she could restring the hanger and attach it to a different part of the frame. She did this, repapered the back, put new hardware on to hang it and sent us on our way with new hangers for the wall. When we asked what we owed her she said "Oh nothing, we don't charge for small things like this". I literally left the shop with chill bumps I was so touched by her kindness. Will definitely be bringing our future business to this shop!

I was delighted with the work done by The Great Frame Up! They helped me select the perfect frame and matte for my large print, did a beautiful job framing it, and then delivered and hung the print over my fireplace. Their prices are reasonable. Highly recommend!

Mike at The Great Frame Up was amazing. While stuck in another country thanks to Covid, Mike helped organise a present for my family while I am away. He emailed me images of frame selections, made recommendations, and then personally delivered the artwork. Highly recommended, above and beyond customer service.

Love this place! All my framing needs goes straight to The Great Frame Up! From 7 foot long Egyptian Papyrus art, unique post cards, to my daughter's artwork…. The care and creativity placed into displaying my art is top notch :)



A gift in Charlottesville. Very friendly store owned by a kind, knowledgeable couple. There are many options of frames and glass as well as a friendly kids corner for little ones to play!

I took a bridal bouquet of dried flowers there for my sister's anniversary this year and they made the most beautiful shadow box I have ever seen. The most memorable and perfect gift of all.

This is a locally-owned business that does great work and cares about their customer's experience. They did a great job re-framing my print the owners went more than the extra mile. Highly recommended.
