It only takes one trip to understand the care and respect J&S Picture Frame Warehouse puts into their product. Whether you are a homeowner, artist or interior designer, they can help you express your style and creativity.

Owner Sherry Morris and her team deliver workmanship and customer service you can count on. From framing pictures, art, needlework and mirrors to photo restoration, the customer has always been Morris’ first priority.  J&S Picture Frame Warehouse is a turn-key operation where every piece of the puzzle is created in-shop. “We simply offer the best selection of materials to preserve your treasures, keepsakes and works of art,” Morris says.

Surrounded by an impeccably crafted showroom, Morris exudes knowledge as she explains the vast options available for quality custom picture framing and design. Fifteen years ago, the company expanded to include photo restoration and large format printing. Old photographs and documents are scanned in-house and restored with precision using a computer program. The dramatic enhancement in colour and quality allow customers to exhibit their piece with pride.

Gallery Wrap

Traditional techniques are gaining popularity in modern design. Canvas printing can include reproductions of an artist’s acrylic or oil painting or a cherished wedding photograph. A gallery wrap canvas gives clean lines to hang beautifully on your wall. Treated with a matte finish UV laminate and stretched onto a frame, canvases can also float in a frame for added detail.

Sports Memorabilia

You didn’t spend a lot of money on your collectable sports items to have them hang in the closet or be stuck in a drawer. J&S Picture Frame Warehouse creates impressive sports memorabilia displays. With a keen instinct for the craft, employees turn your beloved hockey or Rider gear into an intriguing collection you won’t want to hide.  Charming  shadow boxes frame- up anything from a treasured jersey to a prized signed hockey stick.

Giclee Printing

Gloria Parker’s fabulous landscape pastels express Saskatchewan’s beauty in breathtaking fashion. The talented Saskatoon artist captures her passion with incredible detail. Inspired by Mother Nature, her tranquil but vibrant pieces of art illustrate our exquisite surroundings. J&S Picture Frame Warehouse offers framed original work or prints by various artists, who can take advantage of giclee printing which is available on archival paper and canvas. It’s the perfect opportunity for creative minds to create a series of limited editions from their original artwork.

Family Photos

J&S Picture Frame Warehouse has a special knack for family photos. Offering the largest selection of framing and matting in the city, corners are never cut when creating a masterpiece to hang in your home. Vivid colours displayed on a stunning backdrop can be perfectly suited to your personal style. This black and white canvas photograph was recreated from a colour picture and updated with a red frame for a more modern look. Let your family photos come to life for everyone to see.

LED Lighting

Don’t let your family heirlooms or special travel keepsakes go unnoticed. Create a conversation piece –such as this incredible Aztec mask-with tasteful LED lighting. From showcasing important jewellery to accentuating a special gift, LED lighting transforms any item from lifeless to animate. The soft lights flatter intricate details and give spirit to your feature piece.

Creative Team Takes the Lead with Personalized Art Services:

 

I love, love, love what I do,” says Sherry Morris, owner of J&S Picture Frame Warehouse. “We have a great business and a great team that works well together. We try to make sure no customer leaves here unhappy with either the service or the quality of work they received.” 

For 36 years, Morris has served the community for all custom photograph and artwork framing needs. In 2001 she incorporated photograph restoration, scanning and large format printing into her business. With endless combinations of frames and mats, customers can see the possibilities that can be done with their photographs and artwork right before their eyes. The J&S team also accepts photo restoration projects that involves taking a photograph, scanning it to become a high resolution digital file, completing whatever changes and corrections are necessary. This process can help to preserve a customer’s photographic memory that might otherwise be lost. These new digital fi les can be printed onto acid-free paper, canvas or vinyl. Thanks to the recent addition of a new 60-inch, 12-colour printer, artists and photographers can fully appreciate the superior large format printing services offered at J&S. 

Aside from the superior technology and expert staff, Morris says the longevity of her business can be attributed to this simple rule: “Customers are always No. 1.” 

Morris, already a member of Trusted Saskatoon, was recently awarded the Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Outstanding Ethics and Integrity in Business, in the Retail Products and Services Category. Morris says the win came as a surprise, but she is embracing it wholeheartedly. “Our customers are always the first priority. If you come to our business to have an item framed, and after all is completed, tell me you do not like the mat selection, then we will get together and look for a new one. We’ve had customers return after taking their work home, and tell us that the colour or style is just not right. We will then make it right.” Selecting the proper frame and matting can be difficult, Morris acknowledges. “When a customer has their project hanging in their home, we want them to be totally satisfied and happy with it.”  

Everything Morris and her team do is done in-house at the J&S shop. This is an essential part of the personalized service given to each and every customer. “People need to know that their treasures are being taken care of properly,” Morris explains. At J&S, the staff that assist you at the counter are an integral part of the team that will be completing your project.  

People often hand over family heirlooms and ask the team to safeguard them and turn them into a cherished piece of art. “Customer satisfaction and creativity — those are two things that are very important here!” says John Cave, J&S’s in-house reprographics expert. “We are always striving to come up with new ideas for displaying your photographs, artwork or family treasures.”  

Whether you are an artist wishing to make prints of your artwork, a parent seeking creative framing for your children’s masterpieces, or looking to transform your grandmother’s dusty collectibles into a priceless framed memorabilia, the creative team at J&S Picture Frame Warehouse will find the perfect way to display your piece of art.

Here they share some great tips on how to hang frames securely:  

  

It is important to hang frames securely, using appropriate supplies and techniques. There are different methods you can use depending on the application. Read on for specific examples.

To Hold Heavy Mirrors

Avoid the use of picture wire. Hang directly from strap hangers (a loop over a flat plate that screws into the frame). Rather than traditional wall hooks, use wall anchors such as Molly Bolts, that go through the sheet rock and lock into it.

To Prevent Theft

Security Hangers are available that firmly hold all sides of the frame in place on the wall. A special key tool is needed to lock it and again to unlock it. These are generally used in public places but are also good where the frame may easily be bumped.

To Protect Kids

In a kid’s room where things are thrown around, use Security Hangers. If you don’t have access to them, try strap hangers on each side of the frame and heavy duty hooks in the wall for the hanger to sit into. Do not rely on just nails in the wall as they can fall out of the wall or the frame can jump off the nail if something is thrown at it.

To Avoid Crooked Frames on the Wall

When frames are hung from a single point, they usually shift on the wall over time. Both for safety and also to keep frames straight, always hang everything from two points. On heavier pieces this also helps distribute the weight.

To Keep Frames Flush to the Wall

Screw eyes that are often used to attach wire to the frame tend to make the frames lean out from the wall more than they need to. Also, excess slack in the wire can cause the top to lean out. By switching to strap hangers, you can overcome both problems. These hangers are flatter and give you the option of hanging directly from the hanger versus using wire.

Here Sherry shares a tip on Reframing:

 

Reframing:

Sometimes our older framed pieces need some TLC and revitalization. Archival framing wasn’t readily available a generation ago. Past framing doesn’t always reflect our current taste or style. These pieces can be reframed with a more modern design and conservation materials to make sure they will still be enjoyed and preserved.

 

Come in today and let us show you how we can you showcase your special piece for years to come!
