Testimonial: Bettye has an excellent eye and exquisite taste in choosing just the right framing for any piece. The quality of work cannot be beat!
Testimonial: Bettye delivered a professional frame that truly compliments my living space. Her expertise from decades in the business is immediately evident from the moment you set foot in her charming store. I’m so glad I found her shop and will absolutely be taking advantage of her skills for as long as I live in New Orleans.
Testimonial: Bettye did a wonderful job with four frames. It was high quality work. She cared about doing it right. She wasted no time in correcting a small error in the wording.
Testimonial: We had a very old piece of art framed by Betty and the experience was wonderful. She gave us her honest opinion on style, conservation materials, and the most appropriate way to construct the interior of the frame so not to damage the integrity of the piece. She spent a considerable amount of time with us on a Saturday afternoon educating and guiding us while considering everything from paint color to surrounding furniture in our home. She also let us know in advance what items were pricy and which were cost effective throughout the process. Our piece couldn’t have come out more beautifully and will look to Betty again in the future.
Testimonial: Bettye Duplantier’s work in a word is “exquisite”. Most of the items I have done require archival framing which can be expensive but Bettye’s work is worth every penny! She has framed rare documents for me and expensive ink and pencil drawings by a very famous artist and her suggestions and final product have always been outstanding and masterfully done. If you require archival framing there is none better.
Testimonial: I’ve had a number of pieces framed there, and all of them were done beautifully! The owner has a wonderful eye, and makes perfect recommendations every time. When complete, not only does my artwork look fabulous, but professional as well.
Testimonial: As Dwight Eisenhower said, “There is no victory at bargain basement prices.” It, perhaps, is a bit overwrought to compare successful framing to victory as contemplated by the Supreme Allied Commander, but the point is well made: Duplantier Fine Framing’s work is both exquisite and masterful. Bettye Duplantier’s expertise and knowledge garnered over her career combined with her attention to detail are worth every penny.
I have had several items framed by Duplantier—diplomas, certificates, an autographed announcement from a luminary, and even a Commander’s Palace menu serving as a decoration in my office so very far from New Orleans. Every single time, each aspect of the framing—from the size relative to the subject matter, to the choice of mat type, to the museum-grade glass and the use of Japanese paper and wheat paste to ensure the viability of the finished product for decades—has been perfect.
Sometimes Bettye and I have had polite but jovial differences of opinion about how to present an item best in a frame. Several times she persuaded me to change my mind based on her expertise, and I am glad I did. When I didn’t, she was always gracious, positive, and accommodating to my instructions. And there were times I have given her unfettered discretion and I was exceptionally pleased with the end product.
I am confident you, too, will be pleased with her work. One looking to have high quality custom framing should not hesitate to hire Duplantier Fine Framing.
