Recent Frame Projects for: Aurora, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Willowbrook, Woodridge, and more!
For over 20 years The Framemakers have been an underwriter for “Those Were The Days” radio program from College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn. We have always appreciated our association with the program, people, and college. We have custom framed innumerable diplomas from College of DuPage. We have created framing for items from many local colleges including Elmhurst University, Benedictine in Lisle and Wheaton College. Among the items customers have brought in, we have framed society and club certificates, tassels, class photos, graduation stoles, medals, patches, and letters. Any college memento you have can be framed into memories. Of course we have framed diplomas and items from all the major colleges and trade schools in Illinois.
We have also framed from many all over the United States. We have even framed diplomas from Mexico, Central America, Philippines, South America, Eastern Europe, Scotland and Australia.
In our previous blog we mentioned framing for colleges. We should include other schools also. We recently framed a beautiful sports collage for a student from Montini High School in Lombard. We have framed many school art projects and even a kindergarten diploma. Items from sports, clubs, events, any memory you choose can be included in commemorating yours, or a loved ones, school days. We have framed many antique diplomas including sheepskin and a “homemakers” diploma.Other than personal items we have done framing for the schools themselves. Be it for fundraising or permanent display. Prospect and Notre Dame Schools in Clarendon Hills, St. Isaac Jogues in Hinsdale, Holy Trinity, Manning and Westmont High School to name a few. We are always willing to help a school or teacher with framing with in their budget.
Quality custom picture framing is getting more difficult to find. In recent years we know of frame shops that have closed in LaGrange, Downers Grove, Glen Ellyn and Oak Brook. Fortunately, The Framemakers are still here, and have been for over 50 years, to supply you every service. New framing, glass replacement, change of matting, cutting down a frame and frame repair. We can frame anything, any size, any shape. There is no need to sacrifice quality framing or selection by deferring to a “big box” framing location. We do all the work ourselves right here in our 5,000 square foot studio. If you live anywhere in DuPage County and are looking for quality custom picture framing look to The Framemakers.
The holiday season is just around the corner. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations or any life event can be celebrated by framing a special item. This holiday season we are framing the lyrics to “our song” for a special couple in Woodridge. We recently framed several Hermes scarves for our long time client in Naperville. She has been giving them as gifts to family members over the past several years. A new client from Willowbrook brought in sheet music to “My Way” as a gift for a relative. We have framed hundreds of gift items from wedding handkerchiefs to first date cocktail napkins to photos and dad’s pipe. If you can think of it The Framemakers can make it into a very special gift for family and friends.
The Framemakers recently framed an original Aurora-Elgin railroad sign. The line stopped running in the early 1960’s. The route eventually became the Illinois Prairie Path. Many of the old train stations have become historical societies. The one in Villa Park on Villa Avenue is currently displaying this historic metal sign.
The Framemakers have also had the privilege of a long term relation with Oak Brook Historical Society. We have framed everything from maps to 60 year old posters to photos of Prince Charles when he came to play at Oak Brook Polo Club.
We have always enjoyed supporting our local community organizations. We have framed many items for the Hinsdale Humane Society. We were located in Hinsdale many years before moving to Westmont. Since being in Westmont we have framed many items for the Westmont Historical Society located in the Gregg House. The Framemakers are extremely proud to have these community relationships. We look forward to many more years and expanding our relationships with many more neighboring communities.
The Framemakers has proudly helped homeowners and businesses with framing in Aurora, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Willowbrook, Woodridge and more!
