Frames to You, Inc.


We wish to introduce the members of the NCA MN Chapter who have become part of the NCA family.

Please meet Dee Dee Mittelstaedt with Frames to You, Inc.

Hello, NCA Members.

I recently joined the Minnesota Chapter and would like to introduce myself and my business to the members of the group. I have been doing picture framing for over 35 years. I am certified by the Professional Picture Framers Association (a designation achieved by less than 2% of the framers in the world).

Frames to You, Inc. was opened in 2001 and has more frame samples than any other frame shop in MN. I like to think that my business offers what most other frame shops don't do.

It was wonderful to introduce 2 new members at the March 9th meeting. A big Welcome to the NCA to Dee Dee Mittelstaedt with Frames to You, Inc. and Olia Heinecke with Chowgirls Killer Catering. We look forward to connecting and sharing more about your businesses.

These four prints are what I had framed by Dee Dee at Frames to You. I love how they brought this stark wall to life!
Beautiful Pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Miss you.
We stopped in to see Dee Dee today and pick up a couple prints she was working on. The prints were done by my aunt so there is a lot of sentimental value.

All I can say is we couldn't be happier that fate brought us to her. The prints turned out fantastic. IMO, nobody is worthy of a higher recommendation.

Thanks Dee Dee.

At Frames to You, Inc., custom framing isn't just working with something that is a non-standard size. Sometimes it means exact color matching and having the frame hand-painted.

What an honor to be recognized for my "progressive designs" and my contribution to the framing industry on International Women's Day.

International Women’s Day: Who Runs the [Framing] World? On this day we celebrate the resourcefulness, heart, strength, intelligence and ingenuity of the women of the world. To me, it’s a day to celebrate the ladies blazing trails and taking chances in our own industry! These progressive women-to-watch include (clockwise from top left) / Susan Kaulbars, / Susan Boni, / Valerie Solaas and / Dee Dee Mittelstaedt (with an assist from / Wicked Tacky Frames / Leia Scotton). Personally, I think we should honor the women in our lives EVERY day, but one OFFICIAL day is a start!

Sometimes Frames to You, Inc. has to perform miracles. This vintage hand-stitched Asian embroidery on silk was brought to a big box store that stretched it so tight that it tore in multiple places. Most places would have said it couldn't be fixed. Frames to You, Inc. mended the tears and had Fast Track Products Inc. clone good areas and embroidered those over the tears. The damage is no longer visible.
