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 almost 50 years in business!
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.
June 20th is father's day! Some of our coolest frame jobs have been gifts for Dads. What better way to show your father how much they mean to you than with a custom framed piece of art memorializing the heritage of your family and the stories that go along with those memories!
