[11/25/20]   COVID Update: The good news is that The Frame Station is able to remain open for business! We want to thank all of our customers for your continued support while practicing health-safety.

in spite of supply challenges, we have been able to complete every order but with the holiday deadline quickly approaching, we encourage you to place your order as soon as possible. Our suppliers are facing their own challenges and are working hard to fill orders but we have experienced some delays. We do have stock on hand if you are needing a project finished more quickly, but the choices are more limited.

We are asking you to make an appointment to assure quick service as we have a limit of one customer/family unit in the shop at a time. If you want to stop by, please call from the parking lot and if there are no other customers, we'll invite you in or meet you in the parking lot with curb-side service. Please call 319--337-4716 so we can make arrangements to help you with your framing & gift needs efficiently.

Our goal is to keep our customers and staff safe & healthy. We will continue to require everyone to wear masks while in the shop and appreciate all of our customers who have so willingly cooperated.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at The Frame Station


Opening reception for Marcia Wegmans abstracts, Playing with Paint, is this Friday at the Iowa Artisans Gallery. Masks will be required during the reception from 5 - 6:30. If you can't make this reception, I recommend getting to the gallery before Dec. 4th to see this show. The Frame Station did all the framing, but these originals are amazing. Colorful and vibrant would describe these perfectly. Enjoy!


We have had some fun projects to work with this month and had to share these photos. Maybe it's time to finish your project. Holiday's are just around the corner. Call us for an appointment today, 337-4716


It's not everyday you get a call from the " Big Office", but we did. Desi Druschel, currently a pitching coach for the New York Yankees, was an Assistant Coach for the University of Iowa Baseball team. The Frame Station has framed the senior jerseys for some time now and Desi liked our work. So he called and sent the jersey to us that he is presenting to his father. Thank you Desi for trusting us to do this project. Maybe you have a sentimental piece in your family that could be displayed. Give us a call and we can help you.


Thankfully we live and do business in a community that cares. Come and visit us with your framing needs. Maybe a new mat or glass repair is all you need. Or change that 60's look and get a new frame. Give us a call, 337-4716 and make your appointment today.


Thank you Iowa City community and beyond for keeping us busy thru these unconventional times.
This is a reminder of our policies in our store:
We are asking everyone to mask-up (we will be too).
One customer in the store at a time - if we are busy, we will come to your car and let you know the wait time. We also deliver to your car when picking up your project, just call ahead and we can have it ready
Appointments are recommended.
We sanitize after every customer.These practices are keeping all of us safe.
Remember you can always freshen up current wall hangings to give your decor a new style. Give us a call, 337-4716 and we can get started.

Our hours are Monday thru Friday 10 - 5 PM and we ask that you call and make an appointment before arriving. Saturday is by appointment only other wise closed.

We want to thank the community for their support in our Gift Certificate drive. It was a huge success!

Thank you also to all of the front-line workers who pull their shifts every day, we wouldn’t be here without you.

We still have a long road ahead, but if we can help you with a change or a new project, we would love to make your day.


We hope this finds everyone safe and sound. While The Frame Station is officially closed, we have been rearranging the store, finishing the projects we can, and providing parking-lot pickups. Many of you have called or emailed us asking if we can help with your framing projects. We would love to but moulding selections will be limited to what we have in stock as our suppliers are not shipping at this point. If interested, call or email us and we can discuss the project with you.
BIG NEWS - we are offering a Gift Certificate incentive. We are selling $100 certificates for $80. That’s right, a 20% discount you can use when we open our doors again. Hang on there’s more! For any projects paid for with these gift certificates, we will offer to come out and hang it for free. (No stairwells please!)
We have been in this community for 34 years now, providing excellent work at great prices, donating to local charitable organizations, and supporting school auctions and art projects. We plan on staying here for the duration and we want you to know how much we miss our customers and hearing your stories about your pieces. This is definitely a difficult time for everyone and while we stay at home practicing our distancing, staring at walls, maybe this is a good time to think ahead. Call us at (319) 337-4716, we are at the shop M–F from 10 -1, or email at [email protected]. The Frame Station thanks you and we hope to see you soon.

The Frame Station has temporarily closed to the public according to the Governor's office requirements for COVID 19. We will have a presence at the store, 10 - 1 Mon thru Fri to finish projects, do some rearranging and construction projects. We will be contacting customers when projects are finished and arrangments for pick up can be discussed at that time. Call 319-337-4716 if you have any questions. If you leave a message, we will get back to you as soon as possible. Stay healthy and safe, keep your distances, wash your hands and let's beat this! Enjoy one of our final projects, our Big Ten Wrestling Champions singlets. Congratulations Hawks!


Starting March 21, The Frame Station will suspended our Saturday hours. This will give us some time of distancing ourselves during this crisis. We will be open during the week at our regular hours as of this posting. We continue to wipe down our surfaces and wash our hands after transactions . All DIY projects are on hold also at this time. We will finish those projects and just have the customer pick them up at their convenience. At any given time we do not have a large crowd of people in our store, so we continue to take orders. You can call us also with any questions at 337-4716. Our suppliers are open and on limited staff, but we are getting our orders. Thank you for your patience and stay healthy and let's beat this! Enjoy these jerseys.


The project on the left we thought was timely and wanted to show what can be framed in a shadow box form. Got any ideas? The Frame Station can help you with those project's. Stop in soon.

[01/17/20]   The Frame Station will be closing today at 1p.m. and Closed for Sat. the 18th. Be safe and warm.

This beautiful landscape was done by one of our local artists Marcia Wegman. We do her framing and are fortunate enough to be the first to see them. Happy WINTER!


Christmas posters ready for your home.

Another example of what can be done with objects lying around the house in a box. Beautiful beaded handbags from the turn of the century can make great conversations and subjects for the walls. Enjoy!


At yesterday's football game between Iowa vs Purdue, the crowd had the honor of watching another fly over in Kinnick stadium. The Frame Station was contacted by one of the pilot's wife from California for a rushed frame job, can you do it? She was flying in on the red eye to CR early Thursday morning and needed this project for Friday to be given to the Iowa Chidrens Hospital from this team of pilots. Of course we can do that for you! Here is the result. Thank you for the opportunity, we hope they liked it.


Looks like Fall has arrived. Projects have been stacking up. We have already taken Christmas orders, not to far away. Here are some examples of our work, some Fall cross stitches and a seed bag. Let us help you with your projects, we have great ideas!


The Frame Station has added NEW frame samples to our inventory. Washed color frames, great for cross stitching. And muted tones with silver accent for a more contemporary look, great for mirrors or abstracts. Stop in and we will show you what we can do to your project.
