Welcome to The Framemakers!

We're Central Maine's premier picture framing shop.

Quality is what you want for your cherished keepsakes and what you can expect from the Framemakers. Our vast frame and mat combinations offer preservation with a flair of beauty. Posters, photographs, paintings, diplomas, child's drawings, sports jerseys, and shadowbox items are our specialties. Stop by and watch us work our magic! We can accommodate you for your personal taste, budget, and time, sometimes in as little as 24 hours depending on materials in stock. Also check our our selection of ready-made frames.
