About Us

A Rich History

Sixty years ago, Richard Chessler saw the need for a quality custom framing business in the community and founded The Chessler Company. Richard and his wife, Babs Chessler, grew the business from their modest Belvedere Avenue shop until their son, Howard Chessler, took the reins in the early 1990s.

Our first location on Belvedere Avenue was a fixture in the community, and its growth enabled us to relocate.

Our next stop was Primrose Avenue, where we could serve even more clients (and enjoy some tee time).
From the beginning, The Chessler Company always cared about creating high-quality frames for individuals and businesses.

"I have worked with The Chessler Company, both professionally on projects and personally for my own art and framing for 30+ years and have never been disappointed. From Corporate Identity/History Gallery Walls, framing multiple pieces and sizes, to Law Office reframing existing, to large format pieces, to Assisted Living projects with large quantity of pieces. The entire Chessler Team is helpful, timely and have always delivered great quality. They meet budgets and aggressive schedules, and their installations are second to none! Overall outstanding results over 30 years and two generations!"

"There is a reason The Chessler Company has been around for over 60 years. They are passionate about providing the highest quality work and the best customer service possible. I've had a number of pictures framed over the years and The Chessler Company is the only company I trust. "


"Our Company has been using the Chessler Company for over 15 years. They have a complete selection of artwork to choose from and have always done a fabulous job of framing and installing at our many sites throughout the Mid-Atlantic. They are personable, professional and responsive. I would highly recommend the Chessler Company – they provide awesome service and are experts at what they do!"

"So happy to find that there are places other than Michaels to get art framed! Love supporting a local, family business with friendly, knowledgable employees. There are SO many frames to choose from and the framer was super helpful in narrowing down the right frame and mat for my art. Pricing was lower than I was quoted elsewhere and the work was completed quick!"
