Careers

If you love art, you'll be a great fit at American Frame.


Nearly fifty years ago American Frame started as a family business—the kind that takes over the family garage, where after school Dad calls the kids out to help finish the day’s orders.

We’ve grown a lot since then, becoming the nation’s leading provider of picture frames and framing supplies to artists and photographers, museums and galleries, collectors and DIY framers, while creating a full-service print shop to offer customers professional-quality art and photo reproductions.

Along the way we’ve held tight to our team spirit and the inspiration that led to those long-gone garage days: we love art. We don’t think it’s expendable. We think it’s essential. And we want to work with those who feel the same. If you do, you’ll be a great fit on the American Frame team.

Art fuels life and here at American Frame we know that you have beautiful lives outside our walls, and we want your work to exist in harmony with all the other things you need and want to do.

We love art. We don't think it's expendable. We think it's essential.
And we want to work with those who feel the same.
