Keepsake Custom Framing
Keepsake Custom Framing has gone out of business!
Keepsake Custom Framing owned by, Jeff and Sheila Clapper, opened for business on August 1, 2011. Keepsake Custom Framing has quickly become the premier Blair County Photography and Framing business.
After working as a salesman for 17 years, Jeff decided to retire and started taking pictures as a hobby. After selling hundreds of his photos in store-bought frames, Jeff decided to make his own frames since he liked doing woodworking as a hobby. Jeff and Shelia attended Prestige Framing Academy in Agoura Hills, CA. Our instructor was a 3rd generation picture framer as well as a nationally known CPF & GCF. We have also gained additional framing and design skills from attending trade shows, classes, and workshops with nationally known instructors. We are members of the PPFA – Professional Picture Framers Association.
At Keepsake Custom Framing we provide custom framing of photographs, paintings, canvas, jerseys, memorabilia, documents, jewelry, heirlooms, and so much more. We sell already-framed items and scenic photographs, including a wide selection of historical photos captured by us over the years. Keepsake Custom Framing also provides photography services such as; Senior Pictures, Family Portraits, Event Photography, Restoration of Old Photographs and more. In the future we intend to provide a venue to host small scrapbook crop parties.
Framing involves a lot of decision-making. A lot depends on several factors – the type of artwork, their budget, where it is going to hang, etc. The sky’s the limit on frame-glass-mat combinations. It is a collaborative effort and we are here to present choices and provide solutions. We help our clients make informed decisions from frames to glass to mats.
We have framed and preserved a variety of items from the early 1900’s to today; including a letter from President Dwight D. Eisenhower, World War I discharge papers, 50 yr. old Girl Scout and Boy Scout uniforms, sports jerseys, sports memorabilia, early 1900 photographs, canvas, mirrors and other custom items.
We treat everything we frame as a keepsake that may be passed down through the generations. Many years down the line, we want clients to be able to un-frame it and it should look exactly the way it did when they brought it in for framing.
We do all of our work in-house! We have become experts in Photograph Preservation, Restoration, and Custom Framing. Bring us your old photos and watch us restore them to their old glory!
