Established in 1979

A neighborhood tradition for over 4 decades

A long time ago, back in an age of poster stores and trendy aluminum frames, custom frame shops were common. The Framesmith uniquely adopted a “do-it-yourself” model allowing our patrons the option to assemble the final product themselves. It was a lot of fun.

Times have certainly changed. It remains fun to meet all of you, see your beautiful art and hear your stories, but much of the work we do now relates to fine art and can be more specialized or complex. The artisans we have on staff are trained to handle a variety of media and sentimental keepsakes. We are proud to have maintained ourselves as a small, but vital neighborhood business located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s east end.

Thank you for the continued support!
