About Us

Owners Larry Pearl and Sherry Pearl are a husband and wife team and avid photographers who began framing in order to exhibit their photographs. Like most artists they found that adding the cost of custom framing to the price of their pictures was a problem. They tried using ready-made frames, but they simply did not work well because often their photos just didn’t fit well into the standard sizes that are a limitation of ready-made frames. Needing to frame a large number of prints for a show in 2008 Larry actually made some of his own frames from red oak trees lumbered from their own yard!

Having recently retired from a career in high technology Larry discovered a custom framing business for sale in Newburyport and with the support of friends and family they decided to take the plunge! Larry has a background in the computer industry but also loves working with his hands and custom framing allows him to pursue his passion in photography.


Newburyport Framers-38

Sherry Pearl had had a life-long love of art and design. Her recent involvement with digital photography has opened up a whole new world of creative expression. Being involved in the design process of custom framing allows her to use this creativity and allows her to pursue her passions: photography, art and design. Nothing gives her more pleasure than when the customer and she reach that “aha” moment where the artwork is transformed into some special.

We are committed to the highest standards of custom framing using only museum quality materials. We are committed to using frames from managed forests and recycle most all of our cardboard. We also donate our scrap matboard to local preschools. We value the art that you entrust to us as well as the trust you put into us. We want you to be happy with the framing of your art and will do everything possible to ensure that. You are important to us.

In this world of big business, so many times the customer contact is lost. We at Newburyport Framers want to get to know you and pride ourselves on customer service. We have gone into homes to help consult when colors need matching. We have delivered artwork to several homes when time is tight or the art is too large to handle. These are just a few examples of the service you will receive at Newburyport Framers.
