“Finishing Touches assists each client in finding just the right design and combination of materials that is best for the artwork and suits the individual’s tastes and budget.  We deliver the best quality workmanship ensuring that their framed artwork can be enjoyed and appreciated for many years to come.”




Finishing Touches is a family owned business that was founded in 1981 by Jan and Steve Bertwell as a home based framing service that specialized in framing for needlework stores up and down the east coast. In 1989 they moved the business out of their home to a retail location and welcomed clients, including those who needed more traditional custom picture framing.

Finishing Touches has always been very much a family business.  When sons Evan and Dan were young they could often be found in the shop after school. Evan will tell you that his very first job was sweeping the floor at Finishing Touches!  Both Evan and Dan worked with their dad for a time as adults and he shared his knowledge and skills with them.  Following Steve’s passing in 2009 Evan joined the business, building on the skills that he learned from his father over the years.

Finishing Touches is known for our expertise in framing everything from photos, posters, memorabilia, artwork, objects, etc.  Bring your ideas and we will work with you to create the best presentation for your artwork.

Finishing Touches Custom Picture Framing is a member of the Professional Picture Framers Association and Evan and Jan attend the regional meetings and the national conference to attend classes and to stay current on equipment, techniques, and the latest trends in the industry.
