Dear Peter,
The Dufy arrived today in perfect condition as always.  It is truly a beautiful piece and you did a superb job of framing it.  The black frame really makes the Dufy colors stand out (but, of course, you already knew that).  I have the perfect place for it in my office … I am going to hang it on the wall behind my computer monitor.  It will be a relief to look up from the monitor and see Raoul Dufy.
Thanks so much, Peter.

Thank you.

The Picasso Lysistrata is beautifully framed and absolutely wonderful. It is now hung and I'm now thrilled to be in the presence of a Picasso (along with an Andy Warhol). I'm so happy I found you guys -- please pass this message along to your associates at the shop.   PS: You folks really know how to pack a print for shipping -- good job.

All 3 of my brothers even commented on how beautiful the frames were as well. Many thanks for fitting me in at such short notice, for the great quality and personalized service. Hope that your Christmas was relaxing and that your New Year is a great one. Thanks again!

Georgetown Frame Shoppe,
     I can't tell you what a surprise it was to walk into my office this morning and find a beautifully framed newspaper article! It was so very thoughtful. The article itself has taken on a bit of a life of its own around here and we've gotten some nice ribbing for being called a "scattered brained graduate student" by the Washington Post.  Really can't thank you enough. You'll be seeing me again soon - I've got my eye on something for an upcoming birthday!  All best,
