Why The Chessler Company Is the Right Choice for Custom Framing in Owings Mills, MD

  • Competitive Pricing: At the Chessler Company, our top priority is to provide the highest quality framing solutions possible for each family’s budget. Prior to starting any project, we will sit down with you to discuss your vision. If you are working with a specific budget, we can make adjustments to craft a solution that is both high-quality and compatible with your budget.
  • Top Quality Service: Many of our team members have been with us for multiple decades, and we take great pride in our work. We don’t view your project as another task to work through in a long list, but rather as an opportunity to make something your family will treasure for years to come. Most corporate framers, like those at Michaels Owings Mills, MD are located in a small section of a larger store, so employees are not guaranteed to be knowledgeable or passionate about framing. At The Chessler Company, framing is our life’s work!
  • Customizability with High Quality Materials: When you work with The Chessler Company, you can choose from a vast selection of framing materials, mats, and glass options to ensure the end product meets your needs and protects your prized possessions. Regardless of the configuration you choose, you can expect the end product to stand the test of time.

Installation Services

Installation services are one final thing that sets The Chessler Company Apart from corporate framing stores like Michaels Owings Mills. Our ability to get your home outfitted with high quality framing doesn’t end once the pieces themselves are framed. After all, a great looking frame is nice, but how can you go about perfectly hanging it on the wall? If you need top-quality installation services, we can help there, too!

"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!"
