The Frugal Frame Shop

To help maintain the health and safety of our customers and staff The Frugal Frame Shop is open for all design sessions and artwork pickup by appointment only. Please call 406-586-8644 to set up an appointment.

Due to continued limited availability of supplies, our turn around time on most projects is still several weeks.

Many framing options to choose from for your artwork when you visit The Frugal Frame Shop

***See detailed COVID-19 comments below.

The Frugal Frame Shop has served all of Southwest Montana since 1997. Formerly located in Four Corners, we are now conveniently located in Bozeman across from Gallatin Valley Mall at 2612 W. Main Street, Suite B.

We are a full-service custom frame shop with quality materials and a staff of experienced professional framers. Conservation framing and lifetime craftsmanship are our standard.

We have the largest selection of frame moulding and matting materials in the Gallatin Valley. Our exceptional frame designers will help you integrate your art into your home decor.

Custom Framing is our primary focus. As a workshop instead of a gallery, we are able to offer every custom service at surprisingly affordable prices.

The Frugal Frame Shop is happy to provide as much or as little service as the job requires. From a simple mat to canvas stretching to full shadowbox treatments, we are here to help.

Hours: Monday-Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10-5pm.

Hello! We have an update for you about resuming business. I want to start by saying Thank You to our valued clients. Your support of this small, locally owned business enabled one month of paid leave for our five staff members as well as our recent expansion. It's been a wild ride of unknowns and we are very excited to see you!

The Governor's directive on reopening non-essential business (that's us) includes guidance to maintain social distancing for both customers and employees. This means several changes in our operating procedures that are inconvenient. For the near future we will be curbside pickup and drop-off and design by appointment only. Please do not "just drop by" as the doors are not unlocked. While we are indeed working, we have staggered shifts to socially distance staff and will not be able to accommodate our usual walk-in traffic.

Several of our staff have high-risk factors for complications and even if you see someone in the window, they may not be a staff member who is safe working with the public. Please know your business is important to us and we are sorry that we cannot just open the door. As the owner, I have instructed the staff to place the safety of their co-workers above knocking.

To make an appointment, please call the shop at 406-586-8644 with at least 24 hours notice. We will ask how many pieces you are bringing so we can schedule enough time. Please bring at most one other person besides yourself to your appointment. If your errands are running into your appointment time, just give us a call and we will try to accommodate you. We understand!

We are offering remote design by email and pictures if you prefer, but differences in monitors and screens calibrations can make this challenging for matching colors and finishes.

For picking up completed work, you do not need an appointment but we ask for 1 hour of notice and we will make a plan for curbside pickup.

And finally, most of our suppliers are not open and not shipping at this time. They are not able to predict when they will be allowed to resume. We have some items in stock that we can complete soon, but for the "perfect" frame, we cannot guarantee a completion date until we hear that the supply chain is open.

We are committed to making your experience as easy as possible within these restrictions and excited to get back to work.

The Frugal Frame Shop Customers Say:

Not only have they done the best job of any framing shop in Bozeman framing my artwork, they're also consistently the cheapest - by quite a bit.
