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.

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.

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.

The power of "all in"

 

Professional photographer Milton Taylor's longstanding involvement in the Saskatoon business community has served as a natural channel for his many volunteer pursuits. He spearheaded this vegetable garden project which is managed by the Food Bank.

Maybe he won't hang from a tree to get a photo (he'll do the next best thing) but professional photographer Milton Taylor is willing to get 'down and dirty' to spearhead a vegetable garden project for the Food Bank. It's part of his longstanding volunteer philosophy, otherwise known as a lifestyle.

"I've done a lot of volunteering in the past, Kinsmen, K40, that kind of thing. But I've gotten into volunteering moreso in the last few years because the community has been good to me, they come to my door and have their pictures taken, so I like to give back," he says. Imagery, Taylor's photography business, was established 37 years ago, and these days, focuses primarily on commercial style work, as well as a range of portraiture, including large family groups.

Being in business in Saskatoon over many years has led to numerous volunteering opportunities. "If you've been steeped in the business culture and you're observant, you do those things, it just comes natural to you," he says.

Taylor was the instigator of "100 People 100 Reasons" when Saskatoon turned a hundred. He's in his third year on the board of the Saskatoon Golf & Country Club where he oversees two committees. He's been a Jazz Festival volunteer for 15 years, serves on the board of the NSBA (North Saskatoon Business Association) and with the Club Connect committee. He just completed a couple of two-year stints with the Tourism Board. 

Taylor's general approach seems to be "all-in" no matter what he does. But some opportunities tug at the heart strings in a special way. Like Care and Share, an organization that seeks to ensure all children have the same opportunities. It serves 17 inner-city community schools, addressing their wish lists of goods, services and programs that would best fulfill the students' needs.

Taylor has been on the board of Care and Share Saskatoon for about 12 years. "We have a dignity fund and each school is allotted so much money and the coordinator can take it and buy underwear or rubber boots or a swim suit if they go to swimming classes," he says. In many cases the children don't have these kinds of necessities.

"Many things in life will catch your eye, few catch your heart - pursue those," quotes Taylor, who is so committed to Care and Share he says they'll have to throw him off the board, because he's not leaving anytime soon. Everybody deserves a chance and Milton believes education is the key to the answer. "If we can have a generation of kids who stay in school, learn to be productive, and have positive role models, then we may have to close down a jail or two. That's wishful thinking but you've got to shoot for something," says Taylor.

The Food Bank vegetable garden on Third Avenue is another project that Taylor spearheaded. "I saw the toboggan at the top of the hill and I gave it a shove and got her rolling." The plot is in view from his current business location on the corner of 3rd Ave and Duchess Street. After getting permission from the mayor, some aging housing was removed, the plot was levelled and potatoes were grown the first year. When blight set in, the crop changed. "Last year they planted a lot of corn and squash and root vegetables and things like that, and harvested 19,500 pounds of produce from the three acre plot," says Taylor, who volunteers by going and picking things when they need it.

Taylor and Kearny Korchinski were asked by the Chamber to help form a new Junior Chamber of Commerce and we helped form a club which is now known as SYPE (Saskatchewan Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs).

Professionally, Taylor has served on the provincial and national boards of the PPOC (Professional Photographers of Canada) as president and in other capacities. He's also done speaking, competition judging and mentoring for various groups and individuals.

"There's people in our society that are stuck between a rock and a hard place, and dignity is important. Helping them to help themselves or giving them a chance to move forward, helping them get into society a little more and be their own person, don't we want that for people?" asks Taylor.
