I am so thrilled with the 6 custom frames I ordered! Amy was so helpful in answering all my questions and I received my order much sooner than I expected. Everyone who comes into my living room compliments how beautiful they are. I highly recommend this company and will buy from them again.

About

The "Professional Heartstring Tuggers"

Have you ever opened a gift from someone and you just couldn't hold back your tears? You know... the good ones. Those streamy tears of emotion that really take you right back to that memory. That exact moment. It's just captured perfectly in this perfect little package with this perfect little bow.

We like to call this 'tugging at the heartstrings'. We LOVE to tug heartstrings... ours, yours, and your loved ones, too. We'll create that perfect gift or keepsake for you. The "happy tear" ones that really take you back. Or forward. Wherever. We are the best heartstring tuggers around.

We are Clyde and Amy. We decided to name our shop after our middle names: Cecil and Lynn. We live in Old Forge, PA. It’s near Scranton in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania (NEPA). We love making unique & personalized handcrafted items. Heartstring tuggers. Many of our items started out as gifts for family and friends or unique "memory holders" for our own home.

Our very first items were reclaimed wood picture frames. We print our pictures out. We have a zillion frames. Pictures get changed in and out every few weeks. There's something that is just special about having those moments on the wall. Especially these days when photos are piled up in flash drives never to be seen again. Sometimes, we feel like the digital age has taken over. And we don't want that to happen to us. Or you, either. Our picture frames come in all shapes and sizes. Most are from reclaimed wood, barnwood, old things that add character and interest. They are elegantly crafted, sanded, cleaned, sealed, and cared for. Made perfectly to hold your memories.

One of our best selling items is our "Choose your own colors & stains" frames. We customize these for YOU. Just for you. One of a kind. Your favorite colors. Your wedding colors, maybe? Your best friend's favorite colors? Colors of your alma mater?

We also personalize many of our items. Plaques reading Our First Home. Best Friends. That quirky little saying that couples say that is kind of sweet, but super corny, but somehow also makes you a little jealous inside? Yeah. We make that, too.

If you've ever done something regretful... like broke your mother's favorite vase, or smashed that China plate that was in your family for decades. This is your chance. Lets turn it into a frame, or a heart plaque, or something really special. Give it back to them. Completely new, but old. Brimming with memories. Make it a heartstring tugging moment! We'll even let you take the credit ;)

Thanks for stopping by! We can't wait to meet you!

Frequently asked questions

Can you personalize / customize my order?

Many of our items can be personalized with different colors or custom text. Check individual listings for more info. You can also send us a direct message if you have something different in mind. We love custom orders -- let us make something special just for you :)

Will my item look exactly like the photo?

Sometimes yes, but in most cases no. Our items are custom made and not mass produced. Wood type, degree of weathering, grain, knots, coloring and weathered "markings", slat widths, textures and overall dimensions will vary as each piece of material is different... which will make your item a "one of a kind"

Do I have to pay shipping on a local order?

No. If you live in the Scranton PA / Wilkes-Barre PA area you can message us to arrange a pickup. We live in Old Forge. If you've already talked to us, enter the coupon code NEPALOCAL when checking out to remove the shipping fees.

Do I need plexiglass for my frame? Why is it extra?

Choose "Add Plexiglass" when purchasing if you want us to include piece(s) of .040 PETG, Clear Styrene/Plexiglass to protect your photos. The clamping system may leave scuffs in your photo underneath the clamp -- the plexiglass will prevent this from happening. While it's not necessary, if your photo is valuable or sentimental, we recommend it. You can use a piece of glass from an old frame -- that will work fine, too!

When will I receive a printable file? Is it instant?

After purchasing a digital file, you’ll see a View your files link which goes to the Downloads page. Here, you can download all the files associated with your order.

Downloads are available once your payment is confirmed. If you paid with PayPal or a credit card on Etsy, confirmation might take a few minutes.

We’ll also send you a download notification email separate from any transaction notification emails you receive from Etsy and/or PayPal.

Is reclaimed wood safe for my home? Do you have any special process you use to make sure it is?

This is a great question and we urge you to ask this when buying any product that is made from reclaimed wood. Reclaimed lumber needs to be handled with care since it's often left outside for YEARS before we find it.

All of our wood is cleaned, sanded, and sealed with polyurethane so your frame will last. We scrub the wood clean with a mild antibacterial soap. Then, we steam the wood at high temperatures to sterilize it so it's safe for your home. After sanding and applying any finish, we seal our wood with matte polyurethane for extra protection. "Matte" means there is no sheen to the clear topcoat of the wood -- it protects the wood while maintaining all the rustic goodness we both love so much!
