About Us

Queen City Framing & Art Supplies was opened in the fall of 2016 in Helena, Montana by Deb Parsons and Martha Johnson. They wanted to provide the community with a store dedicated to providing quality products and knowledgeable, attentive customer service.

Martha has over two decades of framing experience and training in the various methods of mounting prints, paintings, and photos as well as unique delicate items, memorabilia and 3-dimensional objects. Deb has a degree in graphic design, is a former business owner and a published artist and calligrapher who often teaches classes. She can answer questions about all the art mediums and supplies they carry and make thoughtful suggestions.

Deb, Martha, and their staff have the tools and knowledge to help you fulfill your artistic vision with expert advice, individualized customer service and affordable quality!

Covid-19 Information

Update on Reopening April 27th

Montana’s Governor has given businesses the go ahead to start reopening, and according to his and the CDC’s guidelines we are working to provide a safe environment for both our employees and customers. We are asking everyone to abide by the following measures.

Protective Measures

*If you have a fever or symptoms of Covid-19, do not enter.
*No more than 10 people in store at one time.
*Maintain at least 6 feet between you and others!
*Staff will enforce social distancing of a least 6’.
*Use hand sanitizer upon entering and after touching merchandise. Sanitizer is available.
*Customers and staff are encouraged to wear face masks.
*We encourage non-cash payments.
*Doors and POS surfaces will be sanitized at least 3 times per day.
*Staff displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 will not be allowed to work.
*Staff have access to hand sanitizer and regularly wash their hands. They are required to take reasonable steps to comply with CDC and Montana DPH guidelines.
*We will happily be providing curbside and contactless delivery outside our store to anyone who prefers it please email or call us and we will gather everything you need together with clean hands for pickup.
*We will happily take in you framing projects by walk-in, by appointment, or as a drop-off for virtual design. Many of our custom vendors are in different states which has led to delays in finishing orders and we ask for your patience as our country heals and cautiously moves toward opening up again.

Thanks for your understanding and helping us maintain a safe environment as we all navigate this new reality that we now live in. Stay safe and let’s all take care of each other.



We will be back with a whole new batch of classes soon. Thanks for everything and stay healthy.
