Best of Boston

2003 Best Framer

Back Bay Framery

It’s not essential that the people at a frame shop remember your name and your artwork on only your second visit. Or that the shop’s employees occasionally volunteer cheaper, do-it-yourself alternatives. But it’s precisely that kind of attention that bodes well when you’re talking about a service in which a sixteenth of an inch can make all the difference. Rest assured, too, that Back Bay Framery doesn’t cut corners when cutting the corners. Its cheery and attentive staff takes on the most demanding custom jobs, with a selection of tabletop and custom frames that looks like it could put the Louvre to shame.
