Framebridge vs Heritage Frame

Heritage Frame & Picture Co. founded in 1878 in lower Manhattan as New York Frame & Picture Co, is one of the oldest, experienced and respected art, mirror and picture framing shops in New York.

Heritage Frame is also one of the leading corporate framing and art restoration businesses. As a result, it is common for people searching to have their pictures and art framed to compare Heritage Frame to many of the new companies in existence. One of the art framing companies in question is Framebridge.

Framebridge is a new start-up online framing company founded by Susan Tynan. Her entry into the picture framing business a few years ago is as a result of her purchasing artwork on a trip and need to transport it home without the frame it came with. According to her story on her website, she was then inspired to offer low-cost picture frames to people who want to frame their art or photos.

While a great story of entrepreneurship and we are happy to see Framebridge enter the market, our business model and clients are different. Heritage Frame offers high-end quality art and picture frames whereas Framebridge sells to mass markets similar to Walmart and Target but with the added benefits of having someone frame your artwork and ship it back to you.

Most of Heritage Frames clients are art collectors, corporate framing clients, interior designers, hotels, resorts, timeshares, airports, law firms, banks, commercial and residential buildings, museums and art galleries. Our custom art, mirror, and picture frames are designed to last a lifetime and to enhance the value of the artwork. In addition, we install art in your home, office, or at your corporate event.

Our custom art framers are skilled artisans who work with you to select the frame you desire and help you choose the proper matting and installation hardware. Heritage Frame is known for excellent customer service and for our large assortment of superb quality art frames. We are not a mass market photo framing company. Our business is built on one-on-one service.

In addition to corporate and commercial art and picture framing, Heritage Frame is one of the few highly experienced art restoration companies. Art restoration requires a depth of knowledge and expertise that takes years to develop. We have restored artwork damaged in floods, fire, mold, mildew, as well as artwork that has been torn. Some of our art restoration work comes from other custom art framing shops who trust us to remedy the problem.

Another source of our custom picture framing work is from corporate event planners. We work with event planners to install art in places where there will be an abundance of traffic and safety is an issue. Another concern is to have the art installed so it is protected from either theft, falling or damage. We work with event planners at grand openings, award ceremonies, anniversaries, historic displays and for conferences.
