2008-D St. Michael’s Drive
Founded by Jack Kirk in the 1970s, Frontier Frames began in a Sanbusco storefront before pioneering its way to a much larger warehouse-style workspace off of St. Michael’s Drive. A repeat BOSF winner, Frontier has developed its positive reputation over 36 years by providing picture-perfect service to Santa Fe’s finicky clientele.
Frontier continues to rack up accolades because of “trust and strong relationships with our clients,” Ken Kirk, who took over ownership from his father, Jack, says. “Plus,” he adds, “We like to think we are the best.” Frontier offers a broad selection of framing for artists, galleries, interior design applications, and anyone who needs a little help protecting or beautifying their valuable pictures and artwork.
In addition to standard, two-dimensional framing, Frontier also sets and mounts ceramics and artifacts for the many galleries with which it has ongoing relationships. The bottom line, Kirk says, is striving to keep “serving the folks.” (Casey Gallegos)
