HISTORY:

Balcones Frame Supply, Inc. was founded by Jane and Hank Ellison in 1982. The company has supplied Austin with the highest quality materials and professional custom picture framing services for over a quarter century. Family owned and operated by local residents, Balcones maintains a close relationship with its customers. Hank was one of the first picture framers in the United States to receive a CPF certification from the Professional Picture Framing Association in 1991.

Hank recently transferred his share of ownership to his wife, Jane, in preparation to retire after over 50 years in the framing industry. Jane continues to operate the business, offering intelligent design and know-how of what it takes to get the job done, no matter how complex.  She is always happy to work with each client to assure the best product at the most reasonable price.

WHAT THEY DO:

Balcones is primarily a custom wholesale picture frame supply dealing with retail frame shops, museums, galleries, designers and directly with the artists and photographers selling their own work.  The general public is also welcome. Their new showroom has on display over 9,000 unique special order moulding profiles in both wood and aluminum. They act as local distributors for a growing number of independent fine moulding and framing supply companies from all over the world.

Framing services include glass & mat cutting, mounting artwork, wrapping canvases and custom LED shadowboxes.  They cut, join, and finish wood and aluminum picture frames.  They also design and create frames for custom beveled mirrors.

All employees are trained to handle every aspect of framing including sales, design, layout and assembly. Creative and practical, the Balcones staff can often find multiple solutions to resolve any framing issue.  The staff also has a keen understanding of the geometry and chemistry involved in framing, matting, mounting, art preservation and conservation and can provide clear answers about related issues.

NEW HOURS & SHOWROOM LOCATION:

Showroom hours are Monday-Friday 9AM to 5PM central standard time. Open Saturdays by appointment only. Closed Sundays and national holidays.  The showroom is at 7413 Burnet Road, Suite A, Austin TX 78757.
