But that doesn't mean you have to break the bank! Here at Miter Biter, We offer many framing options in all price points while still retaining the quality we have had for
50 years in business!
When Jim began picture framing back in the early 70's he didn't realize how important his business would become for the customers, community and employees of Miter Biter.
Over the years the world of framing has changed so much, however one thing that hasn't changed is Miter Biter's commitment to Quality framing, excellent customer service, and a wonderful selection of products.
We will continue to treat all of our customers as one of the family, whether you have been visiting us for years or are a new addition to our home away from home. All are welcome.
As we enter into the next year we continue to be forever grateful to the community and people who have supported us for over five decades. Without you Miter Biter frame Co. wouldn't be the business it is today.
So thank you all so much for allowing us to make your art beautiful!

One of our most frequently asked questions here in the shop is, "What does Miter biter Mean?" Well fear not we have the answer!
The story is this: Way back in 1973 when the owner Jim was just beginning his foray into picture framing He was investigating the tools of the trade. One of those tools was a device called a foot-chopper (not a very pleasant sounding machine indeed). This piece of equipment is a foot operated behemoth used for cutting perfect 45 degree angles that can then be assembled into a miter joint (i.e. the corner of a frame).
While using his newly acquired product Jim thought to himself "Gee, this seems to be biting the frame more than actually chopping." an epiphany hit! He would name his new business after this machine, but not its actual name, no, the better, way more creative name he'd come up with for it! A MITER BITER!
And so that is how our frame shop got its name.
we still use our friendly Miter Biter to this day although it doesn't see as much action as it used to due to the Miter saws we now have.
We are moving on through summer with block buster design and budget friendly options. We also have many already framed masterpieces for you to buy and take home today!

When hanging art, Make sure not to hang it too high or low on the wall. It should be placed with the center eye level to the tallest person in the house. Or, if hung above furniture, the center should be halfway between the top of the furniture and the ceiling. The exception to this would be a collage wall where all frames are hung as a group, in this instance think of the grouping as one singular piece of art and then use the previous rule of thumb. This will make the room look more balanced and insure everyone has a good view of your treasures.
