Dan Borchers, CPF

Owner, Certified Picture Framer

Dan Borchers brings together two family generations of custom framing expertise to Grand Haven, Holland, and Rockford Michigan. From staining and spraying lacquer finishes to handmade 23 karat gold leaf custom frames, his skills are perfected by years of dedication and hands on training.

At the Frame and Mat Shop, all metal and wood frames are carefully cut and joined with special attention to detail. Our large selection of acid free mats are cut with precision using a state of the art machine called a Wizard. The experienced staff at the shop take great care when selecting the best approach to mounting artworks, stretching canvas, and overall assembly.

“As a family business, customer service was expected long before it became fashionable,” says Dan, “We always stand behind our work and our workmanship.” Dan graduated from Central Michigan University and in his free time enjoys running, golfing, and going to the beach.
