Che-Bella Custom Framing opened in 1999 as an additional component to Allstate Glass, which has been servicing the Southern Tier’s commercial and residential glass needs for over 28 years. Our family owned business was founded by Joe Gaetani. His son, Michael Gaetani began working as an apprentice in 1986 and took over the business in 2002. Although Joe is in semi-retirenment, he continues to offer his vast knowledge and experience as a consultant. Jeff zu Hone was hired in 2003 as a part-time framing apprentice while studying art in college. Jeff earned his Associates in Arts from Broome Community College in 2004 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ithaca College in 2006. Jeff became our framing manager in 2009.
Che-Bella Custom Framing maintains a close relationship with our burgeoning local art community. Several local artists and art collectors depend on us to frame their work. We are proud sponsors of the Joyce K.L Smith Environmental Photography Show & Competition. We are also proud of our affiliations with The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce, Two Rivers Photography Club, The Embroiderer’s Guild, Windsor Whip Works Art Gallery, and John Brunelli Fine Arts. We would also welcome affiliations with other art galleries, clubs or groups.
Che-Bella Custom Framing adheres to the highest quality standards, and we keep up with the latest in framing technology innovations, art preservation, and design trends. Our goal is to create art pieces that will last and be loved for a lifetime. Customer satisfaction is our top priority.
