The Shop’s History

The Frame & I opened in 1984 as a small, one room custom picture frame shop in historic downtown Prescott, Arizona. Business in this sleepy town was different then, so the store could be run by the owner himself (with occasional help around the holidays). As time passed, and Prescott grew, the Frame & I established itself as a premier frame shop, with the largest selection of custom designs and the best quality materials in town. With a professionally trained, creative staff on the premises at all times, customers could be confident that The Frame and I would create the best possible design for their artwork and collectibles.

Shop Local, Keep Prescott Vibrant!

Custom Frame Shop - Shop Local

Why shop local, independent stores?  Local businesses give every town its own unique flavor, rather than the cookie cutter style of chain stores.  Local indies keep more of your dollars in your community too – For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.  If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays home.  Spend it online and NOTHING comes home.  (
