I found Kris on Angie’s List and drove to his shop with my 60″x30″ tile board. He showed my lots of frames…and I selected his first choice! He has a great ‘eye’ for design and detail. The frame is perfect and the board looks absolutely fabulous!

Kris does a fantastic job. I would highly recommend, “The Framer.”

How can anyone deal with another framer? I have done a lot of framing and regret not finding this place sooner. Awesome service and selection and just the nicest people. He went above and beyond to make my piece spectacular.

–Cindy Ritchie


Professional and individualized work to create unique and beautiful pieces! Kris takes extra time to really understand the projects and is the only person I have ever met who can discern between all of the varied shades of colors! I absolutely recommend him to work on projects large and small.

Kris is an expert framer who is personable, friendly and freely shares his time and skill to produce beautiful projects worthy of your art…and he can even turn inexpensive graphics into masterpieces. Highly recommended!

I’ve used The Framer several times and he (Kris) always does a great job. He takes the time to help you choose the right frame and mat that highlights your art work. His knowledge of framing shows and makes the difference between taking your framing to a craft store and having it professionally done.

I can attest…your work is outstanding!!

I was just going through the photo stream on my phone as I sit waiting for my delayed flight to depart. WOW! What a difference on the before and after. The way you framed the wall art added such a level of sophistication that I always envisioned but could never realize. And you did that so effortlessly! Can’t THANK YOU ENOUGH!

–Deidre, Bradenton Homeowner

Through three interior design changes over the last 17 years, Kris has artistically & professionally framed all my art pieces. Guests in my home always comment on how beautiful my home is and I know Kris’s work has a lot to do with that. He has a wonderful eye for color and detail and I can always trust Kris’ expertise when selecting the moldings for my art pieces.

I have had a working relationship with Kris Dorton of The Framer for over seven years. Throughout this time, I have found him to be exceedingly professional in his approach to business. The workmanship and standards, which he has set for his business, is above reproach. Each and every project, whether personal or business, is achieved with equal commitment to his customers.Never has he not fulfilled his commitment of total satisfaction.
