Barbara M. Jersey City, NJ 09/10/14 I like this frame shop very much. Very nice staffers and owners. I am sure that materials for framing from the most simple frames to the extremely ornate are pricey but to nicely framed a 13" x 20" document for upwards of 300+ dollars just seems absurd to me.
I guess if budget was no issue which has been true for me at other times in my life because I have paid upwards of $300 for other items for me this time I had to go on a low budget course and spent $40 for a very nicely framed personal document.
I'm glad they had options for both the high income and moderate income person.
And surprisingly every time I go there I find a parking spot. That's fantastic. I don't know if it's just pure luck. Because Jersey Avenue and Newark Avenue is quite a bustling intersection. But good to have a little bit of luck navigating the entrance to downtown Jersey City.
Sandra B. Jersey City, NJ 08/25/14 Was doing a bit of Sunday afternoon meandering and wandered into this shop. I've never wandered randomly into a framing shop before, but this small storefront had some beautiful collage/pop art and unique paintings in addition to the typical frames and mats. Have not done business here, but did eavesdrop (yes, I did so what) on a couple that was clearly a repeat customer. The shopkeepers seemed extremely attentive and detailed and the customers looked very happy to be parting with their hard earned money. Left a great impression on this passerby. For my next framing project, this will definitely be my spot.
Lizzy D. Neptune Twp., NJ 04/29/14 Our advertising agency used to send the typical agency gifts to our clients to show gratitude and/or excitement upon finishing up a big project. A few months ago we decided to get a couple of our larger clients custom made frames with images of print pieces or video stills we did for them that quarter.
The frames were gorgeous! I spoke to Phillip (owner) about what we were thinking and he worked everything up and gave us sizes and suggestions, basically helping the entire project come together. It did not take that long to have an entirely custom made gift made especially for your client come together start to finish.
Our clients were over ecstatic and have them hanging up in their offices. We are currently using Gallerie Hudson for a project now and will most DEFINITELY use them for future projects.
Katie M. Jersey City, NJ 04/09/13 The staff at Gallerie Hudson (shout out to Terri!) is awesome and has supported me in getting three significant pieces framed, namely my graduate degree and two artifacts that were gifts from friends in Fiji. All three items were custom-framed yet within my budget (especially because one piece spans the size of an entire wall in our apartment); I had help in choosing the frames and colors for background colors each time and the final products were perfect- still looked like "me" in the end! The customer service, professionalism, and quality of the framing makes this one Jersey City neighborhood business worth supporting. Thanks, Gallerie Hudson!
Deborah D. Jersey City, NJ 07/16/12 Superb custom framing! A plethora of frames and mats of all shapes, colors, sizes, and styles.
They did our wedding portrait and it looks wonderful. Classic black frame and white mat with a perfect beveled edge.
You can also buy frames here and frame them yourself if your photo or artwork is a standard size.
Andre P. Jersey City, NJ 01/27/12 I'm glad the owner contacted me on Yelp from a bad experience I had a couple of years ago (which now I see as a fluke). He was able to take a few random pictures and frame them very nicely and pretty inexpensively. Cost is the only thing that prohibits me from framing a lot more things, but Gallerie Hudson's prices are pretty good and the quality is excellent.
I'm a return customer!
Jade K. Jersey City, NJ 01/27/12 I agree with some of what both reviewers, John C. & Andre P. have said. After MANY times being a customer here, I've got to admit that the main guy - I think it's Phillip - is awesome. He tries to help anyone on a budget, he will sometimes help you out if you're in a rush (although he doesn't like to rush!), will even do things most framers are not flexible about just to accommodate his repeat customers. They go out of their way for me, so I give them high recommendation and they always make my stuff like super nice and professional. I have on one occasion not received my phone call about my work being done, but that's why you should follow up anyway. Also, there was one time when I had to wait behind a customer who didn't care that there was anyone waiting and kept asking annoying questions - not their fault really on that though...
Nicholas T. Jersey City, NJ 04/03/12 I stopped into Gallerie Hudson on Saturday to see if they could cut a couple of custom mats for some new prints my girlfriend and I had just picked up. It was quite busy when we first walked in; so much so that we decided to grab some lunch while other customers were being helped. When we returned, Philip talked with us about what we wanted, and was extraordinarily helpful. He went WAY above and beyond to ensure we got exactly what we wanted at a MORE THAN fair price. He even offered to mount our prints with new custom mats into our cheap 50% off Michael s frames! The best part is that from start to finish, everything was done in less than an hour. I couldn't believe how pleasant my experience was here. The owner seriously cares about his customers and wants to make them happy. Upon pickup, the frames were even wrapped in cellophane to protect them on the short 2 block walk home. I have already recommended this place to a friend who is looking to have custom framing done, and would highly encourage anyone else who is thinking about getting something done to stop in and check this place out. I will definitely be back!
Lew Q. Jersey City, NJ Great place, great service. Getting things custom framed isn't cheap, but the best thing you can do is find a place that cares about the work. These guys have spent plenty of time helping me get the frames and mattes exactly right--they were opinionated but not bossy and the choices we made look fantastic. A great local spot--support them!
