Heritage Frame is one of the few custom picture framing companies that makes house calls. Determined to provide excellent customer service, Ted has continued the tradition started 140 years ago by his great grandfather who opened the families first shop in lower Manhattan. Since then, Ted has now taken over the family business and believes providing a quality product with excellent service, Heritage Frame can one day be passed onto his children as it was to him.
As the framing business has grown and technology entered the picture and art framing business, some things began to change. Some of the changes are the lack of expert custom framing craftsman. Expert craftsman like Ted understand the value of selecting high quality wood and metals along with equally high quality matting and hardware. Today, many mass produced frames are made with cheap plastics or compressed wood and do not enhance the art, photo, portrait, diploma, poster or memorabilia within.
Instead, these low quality retail frames cheapen the art and do little to preserve its original condition. What is rarely know is that in some instances, the picture frame is an essential part of preserving the art so the are is not subjected to the elements. In other cases, the picture frame is chosen to capture the ambience of the room, home or business in which the art or mirror is hung. so, the frame selection and quality are essential. Furthermore, the frame is just as important as the picture.
Yes, there are many discount frames that can be bought online as well as at the local Walmart, Michael’s, Target and mall. But, these frames are not of the same quality, look or feel as a custom wood or metal art or picture frame.
We believe, the frame is as important as the art. They complement one another and this relationship between the two is inseparable. Even when re-framing, which is the removing of an old frame, one feels some attachment to the old frame. This is because the frame is in many ways part of the experience.
Over the years, we have worked with many interior designers, galleries, artists , collectors and photographers in Ossining. During this time we have heard the stories of why the art was chosen, who the people are in the portrait or even the journey of obtaining the diploma or degree. It is these stories that make our job memorable.

Maybe we are a bit sentimental, but for us at Heritage Frame, each picture, family photo, artwork, diploma, poster, memorabilia, mirror or object we frame has a story attached to it and we work with that in mind.
