How It Works

Your Art, Our Passion.

Experience the Frugal Framer difference.



What do we mean by “frugal?”

The word most often associated with “frugal” is “cheap.” For most people, this word conjures up images of something that is either inexpensive, or poorly made.

However, in its original meaning, “frugal” is more akin to words like “sensible,” and “meticulous.” These words are much more closely aligned to how Frugal Framer approaches helping you select a framing option that aligns with your preference, budget and timeline.


Customer Reviews
"They helped me beyond belief on a complicated framing process that was being done for a show. They had several helpful money saving ideas I had never thought of and spent a lot of time with me understanding my needs and what I was trying to accomplish... Highly professional, helpful staff that are noticeably service-oriented in every way. Give them a try. I was thrilled."
Mary Jamieson
"Incredible service, and a strong commitment to local artists. Support this local business, they do amazing work and have better prices than the chain stores."
Stacy Redmon
"Great place! They spent a lot of time going through all of the options I had for frames, mat colors, borders, etc. and offered suggestions of what would work best. All of the staff I met were equally generous and friendly. The price was less than I had anticipated and best of all, they did exactly what they said they were going to do... that’s huge. Go here, you won’t be disappointed."
Mark Elam
"We've tried other framers in Asheville, and our experience with Frugal Framer has been the best, hands down. We recommend them without reservation. And their work is museum quality."
