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.

Heritage Frame welcomes you to visit our framing shop. You can also call for an appointment.

Please enjoy the read from Wikipedia...

 Hartsdale, a CDP/hamlet/post-office in the town of Greenburgh, New York, lies on the Bronx River just 20 miles (32 km) north ofNew York City. It is served by the Metro-North Harlem River commuter rail line into Grand Central Terminal. Hartsdale is the home of America's first canine pet cemetery (started by veterinarian Samuel Johnson in 1896), and the world's first Carvel Ice Cream store (1934), which closed in 2008.[1]

Hartsdale's earliest settlers were the Weekquaeskeeks (sometimes spelled Weekquasgeeks), a sub-tribe of the Algonquian tribe that lived in most of southern New York, from Westchester down through Manhattan. Weekquaeskeek is an Algonquian term believed to mean "place of the bark kettle", and this kettle appears in the Greenburgh town seal today.

After the earliest British colonialists arrived, the area was developed under the manor system when Frederick Philipse, a Dutch merchant and British Loyalist, was "given" the land by the British government. As lord of his Philipse Manor, he leased his land to tenant farmers who, at least for a time, were believed to have lived alongside their Native American neighbors.

There is evidence to show that Hartsdale played a significant role during the Revolutionary War, some of which still stands today. On October 28, 1776, a Revolutionary War battle was fought alongside the Bronx River, near the site of the current Hartsdale train station. The Odell House (on Ridge Road, built in 1732) served as the headquarters for the French general the Comte de Rochambeau, and is where the count and George Washington are supposed to have formed an alliance leading to the Battle of Yorktown. The house was later named after John Odell, Washington's guide who bought the house in 1785. In 1965, his descendants deeded the house to the Sons of the American Revolution, and today the house is in severe decay, awaiting funds to transform it into a museum.

After the Continental Army and American colonialists won the Revolutionary War, Frederick Philipse III (third lord of the manor and great-grandson to Frederick Philipse I) fled, his land was confiscated and sold to the remaining farming tenants, many of whom were descendants of the Hart family. The intersection of Central Park Avenue and Hartsdale Avenue was named "Hart's Corners" after Robert Hart, one of these farmers who successfully bid for the land, and in the mid-19th century the entire area became known as "Hartsdale".

The area remained largely agrarian until 1865, when Eleazar Hart deeded land for the development of the New York and Harlem Railroad line into Manhattan, setting the stage for Hartsdale to change into a more cosmopolitan commuter village. Between 1880 and 1940, large tracts of farmland and estates were subdivided and converted into private houses and apartments at a furious pace. By the 1960s, almost no remaining farmland was left for sale.

In 1904, the successful German-Jewish banker Felix M. Warburg (1871–1937) purchased large tracts of land to build his 500-acre (2.0 km2) "Woodlands" estate in Hartsdale, a summer home next to the country club where he and his wife Frieda Schiff Warburg (1876–1958) spent considerable time. The estate would later become an important site in the history of modern American ballet, when on June 10, 1934, their son Edward M. M. Warburg (1908–1992) helped produce the first American performance of George Balanchine's masterpiece "Serenade". In keeping with the family's philanthropic efforts, Frieda Schiff Warburg, on her death in 1958, bequeathed a remaining 150 acres (0.61 km2) to the town of Greenburgh to build a public school. These 150 acres (0.61 km2) are now the home of the Greenburgh Central School District (formerly called Greenburgh Central 7 School District) and Woodlands High School. The main Warburg mansion currently serves as the school district headquarters, but other remnants from the original estate grounds can still be seen standing in the surrounding woods and neighboring streets. The Warburg family's New York City home would later be donated to become the Jewish Museum of New York.

On February 9, 1928, Hartsdale made history when the Scottish inventor John Logie Baird (1888–1946) transmitted the world's first inter-continental short-wave television signal from a transmitter (call sign 2KZ) in Coulsdon, Surrey (a suburb of London) to his colleague O. G. Hutchinson in the cellar of Robert M. Hart, an amateur radio operator (call sign 2CVJ) in Hartsdale.[5]

In 1932, Henry Jacques Gaisman, inventor and founder of the Gillette safety razor blade, purchased 136 acres (0.55 km2) of land along Ridge Road, most of which he purchased from George A. C. Christiancy, son of the former U.S. minister to PeruIsaac Peckham Christiancy. In 1952, at age 82, Gaisman married his nurse Catherine "Kitty" Vance Gaisman, aged 33, a former Catholic nun. In 1957, he and his wife Catherine (Mrs. Henry J. Gaisman) passed the title for his land to the New York Archdiocese for $600,000, with the agreement that they could live there as long as they wished. Mr. Gaisman died in 1974 at age 104, and Mrs. Gaisman remained on the estate until she moved to Connecticut in 1995. In 1999, the estate was saved from sale and development when the Town of Greenburgh acquired the property and reopened it as the Hart's Brook Nature Preserve. Part of the agreement included the preservation of some portion of the estate as a home for retired Catholic nuns. Today the Catherine and Henry J. Gaisman Foundation continues to donate large amounts of money to support medical research.

WOW. Isn't that an exciting read. So the next time you need to decorate or want to display photos, artwork, old newspaper articles, letters or other antiques, you can probably find a whole assortment in your own backyard in Hartsdale.

If you want to meet with us at Heritage Frame & Picture Co or would like to speak with Ted Howell, you are always welcome to call us or stop by our framing shop.

Sleepy Hollow Custom Picture, Art & Photo Frames

Businesses and homeowners in Sleepy Hollow should call Heritage Frame & Picture Co is they need custom picture frames, art frames or photo frames.

Sleepy Hollow Custom Framing announcement, heritageframe.com

As a 4th generation custom framing business, Ted Howell, owner of HeritageFrame.com is aware that many of his clients in Sleepy Hollow have been very loyal to his business. So, this month, Sleepy hollow residents can call Ted Howell anytime to schedule a private home or office, custom art, art restoration and art installation consultation. 

Most custom picture framing companies in Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, Irvington, Rye and Nyack are only open for business until 6pm. This stops many residents and business owners from buying quality wood, silver, gold and metal frames from custom framing companies, As a result, they are ordering retail picture frames that are of low quality. To solve the problem, Heritage Frame & Picture Co allows homeowners, interior designers, restaurants, hotels, banks, law firms, country clubs and art collectors to meet after hours with Ted.

Providing this level of personalized service has always been a hallmark of Heritage Frames success. But now, as the holiday season approaches, HeritageFrame.com wants to make sure if you are giving photos, posters, memorabilia, art work or anything you want framed for the holiday season, we are here.

Recent studies have shown that more people plan on giving photos and artwork for gifts this season and for other special occasions.

In order to make the gift more special and help the artwork stay preserved longer, a picture frame is important. Picture frames, especially custom frames, are specifically designed to protect the art work as well as make them available to be hung. 

If you want to give a truly special gift, the old photos in your home are timeless. These photos of family, friends and memorable events and places touch the soul. Gifts like phones, electronics and jewelry have become common and expensive.

Can you imagine getting a custom framed picture of yourself as a baby? What about a photo of your parents wedding custom framed to match the decor of your home? Or to receive artwork made by the children on the family professionally framed and hung in the family room for all to admire?

In fact, many interior designers are now incorporating art work made by family members as a way to personalize the ambience of the home. Interior designers at one time bought expensive artworks and had them custom framed to be hung in the home or business. Now, instead of buying art, they are taking photos and having them custom framed. The custom framing enriches the photographs and artwork so they match the decor. Also, the frame is used a way to capture attention.
