I teach law at Penn State. I have been collecting art, memorabilia, and other collectibles for 30 years. I have had a lot of framing during that time and the type of quality framing that is prevalent at Old Main Frame Shop is remarkable and unprecedented and I would recommend them with enthusiasm and that’s why I love Old Main Frame Shop.
