Gulf Gate Frame Center, established in 1979, has been owned and operated by Mark Dietz, a U.S. Navy veteran, since 2003. We provide quality framing services for the Sarasota area. We use only the highest quality materials to ensure your family will enjoy them for generations to come. All of your work is completed on-site, including custom cut moldings and mats.
We have experience framing just about anything you can bring us. We have framed needlework, antique dolls, old photos, canvas, souvenir posters for a child's room and much more. We can work within any budget. We have over 3800 moldings on display, everything from basic aluminum to Prisma custom painted and cut acrylic.
With our new Valiani computerized mat cutter, we can custom cut any shape, even add drawn text to most mats.
Since it can be hard to visualize your finished product, we offer the Frame-Vue system. Frame-Vue allows us to show you, on our video monitor, what your finished piece will look like. Since not everyone can come into our shop, we are able to email that image as well.
Because archival quality is important to longevity, we use 100% acid free mats (paper, rag, linen, suede and printed), foam board, and TruVue UV resistant glazing (Conservation, Non-Glare, Museum). We offer shadow box (object box), oval frames, needlepoint, canvas stretching, dry mounting, shrink wrapping, etc.
Gulf Gate Frame Center provides personalized, quality service designed to make framing and preserving your cherished artwork, photographs, even keepsakes, a simple and rewarding pleasure. We believe that framing is a combination of fine carpentry, aesthetics and interior design. We work closely with you to choose the elements that will make your vision into a beautiful finished piece. We carry a selection of over 3,800 mouldings from companies such as Larson Juhl, Roma, AMPF, Bella, Prisma and Engelsen, just to name a few. Using our museum grade framing techniques, we look forward to helping you preserve your memories for future generations to enjoy.
If you are looking to restore your damaged old photos before getting them framed, we can help. We work with the area's best restoration experts to bring your damaged artwork back to life. No matter the amount of damage or the age of the print, we use traditional or digital methods to restore it.
Take a look at the examples below. Just bring in your artwork for a free estimate.
