I visited Bull city art and frame company about a month ago to get a certificate framed, I also had a more unusual project. I wanted to get a shadowbox made for some Band-Aids, as odd as that sounds. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all things frames. Although their prices are a bit high, their quality meets or exceeds what you pay for. They clearly put a lot of time and effort into what they do. I could not be happier with the product. Highly highly recommend.

My partner and I recently bought a fantastic Aboriginal painting on our recent trip to Australia. It was the first big thing we bought together in our relatively new relationship, and, because it was so big (7 ft x 7 ft), we jokingly said we'd have to buy a house to go with it! In fact, we did, three months ago in Durham, and the first thing we did was look around for a professional framer to entrust our 'baby' to. Based on the reviews, we selected Bull City Art & Frame, and we are so glad that we did. After an initial email communication, we took our painting in, and from the moment we walked through the door the entire staff converged to make space for our painting and give it all the attention it deserved. We were impressed with their professionalism and very happy about the friendliness and customer service all through the process. Bull City also lined us up with some experienced picture hangers, who transported our treasure back to our house and hung it with meticulous care. It looks fantastic!! My partner will be bringing some more paintings from his next trip to Oz, and we already know where we'll be bringing them for framing!

I recently gave a painting you framed for me many years ago to someone as a gift. She liked the painting but seemed to like the frame even more! You did do a great job on it as you did on all of my work. I'm amazed at the impact a great frame has. Thanks for everything, see you in the neighborhood!

I have had five pieces framed here and wouldn't go anywhere else. They are always extremely professional and personable and I would trust them with even my most cherished pieces. I never write reviews, but this one is worth it. You can stop looking for a high quality, local framing business because this one is phenomenal.

Over the years, I've probably had 10 or so pieces framed here, and they have done an exceptional job every time. What sets this place apart in my mind is the time they take and the enthusiasm they have around getting everything right for whatever I'm framing. Every person I've worked with there has such a great eye for presentation, I relax and let them put everything together knowing it's going to look great. Oh, and it's an amazingly friendly and warm place--there should be a sixth star on Google reserved for places like this.

Everyone at Bull City Art & Frame was incredibly helpful and friendly. They spent a good chunk of time and care working with me on a framing plan for a family heirloom, they did an meticulous and expert job framing the piece, and the final result is absolutely lovely. Their materials and service are of the highest quality. I will definitely bring future framing projects here, and I would most certainly recommend them to my friends.

I've been frequenting Bull City Art & Frame for the past 7 years, and taken in numerous pieces large and small. The staff is incredibly friendly and they have excellent attention to detail. I've taken in some expensive pieces and they've always handled them with care and ensured that they're using archival techniques to preserve the framed art as best as possible. I highly recommend them!

Very high quality work with attention to detail. Perfect for treasured pieces. Pricey, but the quality and service stands up to the price.

Bull City Art & Frame Company is absolutely amazing! My daughter and I visited BCA&FC a couple of months ago to see what options were available to frame a large project (very large project poster) from my daughter's internship. BCA&FC reviewed and offered several framing options and recommendations - they are very attention to detail oriented and their technical knowledge about framing along with great customer service helped ease our decision. The finished frame is beautiful, and professionally made. If you have any framing projects, from simple to the most complex, I would highly recommend Bull City Art & Frame Company!

They worked with me on three quality prints, each with different issues. Excellent guidance on both technical and aesthetic angles. Love the results. Will use them for any subsequent work. Highly recommend.

I highly recommend Bull City Art & Frame. I had a very challenging art project for Bull City. These people are extremely talented and persistent. They took a very long mural (10 ft by 3 ft) and stretched it out along a stretcher frame. They also figured out a good method for hanging the art in our home and included the hanging architecture with their work. If you have a piece of art work you cherish, don't take it to a big box framer - go to a professional. Bull City people are professionals. They went the extra mile for me and we appreciate their help.

Stunning! Absolutely over the moon with the black and white photo family collage they recently produced for us! They were painstaking in their attention to detail, excellent advice on the layout and so knowledgeable on what would be the most effective way to recreate a stunning piece of our family history - it is now hanging in our new apartment and it has already received so many compliments - so grateful, thank you. In addition they framed a very simple limited addition piece which now takes pride of place in our study, and again good advice to show it off to its best potential. Would highly recommend this very professional company. Maria & Paul

We had two pieces framed here and could not be happier with how they turned out. They were extremely patient with us and spent considerable time with us picking out mattes and frames to complement the art. Their expertise was invaluable, and their customer service can't be beat. The finished product was better than imagined, and I can't recommend them enough!

Had a very important family heirloom that needed framing. Asked my friends where to take it. Everyone unanimously answered Bull City Art and Framing. This place is fantastic. Friendly team of employees with a family feel. Beautiful art work from local artists to every frame you can think of. They took very good care of my heirloom and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the final product. I will continue taking my art and anything else that needs framing to there store. Thank you Lewis and the team at Bull City Art and Frame company.

Don’t have a lot of experience framing, but they were very helpful selecting the color and style to best suit the pieces I had brought in. Walked me through both practical considerations as well as asthetic choices to select the frame style. Reasonable turn around time (

OMG this place is awesome! I have an antique mirror that my cat knocked over and broke not only the mirror, but the frame also! I thought this expensive, cherished mirror was done. I took it here and they fixed it beautifully and they did not gouge me with the price! I love this place and recommend it to anyone! a 5+ Star place! Thank you, thank you guys!!

Bull City Art and Frame Company has the best frame selection that I've seen, hands down. Their staff is so knowledgeable and friendly. All of their art is from local artists. I wouldn't take my framing anywhere else. Five star service for sure!!!!

After recently moving to Chapel Hill, my husband found this place on line, having several framing needs. We had 1 large print, 2 antique signed prints, a signed print that was broken in shipment, and a small poster that required a mat. The large print had a frame that required rebuilding and a mat that needed replacing, the 2 antique prints needed new frames, glass and mats. These pieces were very important to us and were treated with the greatest of care. We can't be happier with the results. I recommend this company to anyone that has something special that they want preserved for eternity. Thank you BCAF.

I can’t speak highly enough about their work! I’ve gone here several times and a review is long overdue. Beyond happy with the quality of the framing for these two quality pieces.

I recently moved to the area and was looking for somewhere to frame a few custom pieces I had recently acquired. I live in Raleigh, but must say, that the drive to this shop was well worth it as they exceeded all of my expectations! The price I paid for everything was well worth the service and attention to detail that I received. Their design staff was very knowledgeable and the quality of the work is probably the best I have ever seen. On top of that, they had taken every precaution to ensure my safety while I was in their space. Providing masks and gloves at the front door (for the off chance that either myself or another patron was going without.) Overall, I was thoroughly impressed, and I can’t wait till I’ll be able to work with them again!
