Framezilla was concept that was dreamt up in 2001. After working in frame shops and galleries throughout the country, Amanda was inspired to open a shop of her own that would push the boundaries of custom framing. With Pittsburgh’s developing urban scene, she knew it’d be the perfect place to embrace this concept.
In 2009 she had the opportunity to open a shop called Steel City Framing with a business partner. After parting with him in 2011, she remodeled the shop, changed the name and Framezilla began to finally take shape.
After 12 years of business, Framezilla continues to be one of the most forward thinking shops in Pittsburgh. They are one of the only framers in the area that can handle both retail and large-scale commercial jobs with ease. They love a challenge and are eagerly awaiting what you will bring in next!
Amanda opened this shop with a passion for custom framing and customer service. She holds a degree in Art History and has 21 years of framing experience.
Her specialty: Custom designs and customer service. She loves a challenge and having a new, exciting project to work on.
When she's not working she's probably camping, canoeing or taking Zetta on a long hike in the woods.
