About our Picture Framing
Stanhope Framers was founded in 1972 with a mission to preserve and protect fine art in expertly hand crafted frames, the way framing is meant to be. We feature an extensive collection of our own hand finished hardwood mouldings, gold leaf frames, and welded metal options. Stanhope is the choice for many galleries, museums, and collectors.
We are a local, privately-owned company. Providing framing expertise and personal customer service is at the heart of our operations. We offer an attention to detail that is unmatched, no matter the size of the project.
With quality our priority, we make most of our frames locally in our shop in Somerville’s Union Square. Our expert artisans craft museum-quality frames, mat to conservation standards, and feature state-of-the-art glazing products that will preserve your art and memories for a lifetime.
Stanhope Framers was founded in 1972 by David Murphy. In 1993, Stanhope merged with The Old Cambridge Company, first opened in 1969. For 40 years, Stanhope has stood by its mission to preserve and protect fine art in expertly hand crafted frames, the way framing is meant to be. Our custom-made frames are crafted by local artisans in Stanhope’s Somerville, workshop. Stanhope’s expert staff works one-on-one with clients to meet their framing needs, no matter how large or small the job.
