Ever-genial proprietors Martin Hreczuch and Julie Dmytrenko—the shop is named after their shared birthdate—offer reasonable prices on custom framing at an unexpectedly elevated level of taste and discernment. Established in 2004, with two prior locations on Chicago Avenue, first in West Town and then closer to Humboldt Park, and now on Milwaukee Avenue below Chicago Avenue near Intuit, speaks to the imaginative duo’s willingness to keep overhead low and customer satisfaction high.
