We are a full-service custom frame and wood design shop based in SLC, Utah. We specialize in hand-crafted, environmentally-friendly wooden frames of our own design which feature "finished corners". This means that the frame seams are puttied and sanded before painting for an extra polished, complete look. We use reclaimed woods whenever possible. Our painted finishes are created in a labor-intensive, 6 - 7 step process, and the end result is a rich, glass-smooth surface.
We are proud of being a 100% wind-powered business.
In the mid-'90s Phil started his very first wood shop in the garage of his house. He plugged away building hundreds of amazing custom furniture pieces, and in 1998 he expanded to a larger space down a little alleyway in Salt Lake City. At the same time a local club had just been shut down, and the kids were in need of a place to move the rock shows they had booked. Phil offered part of his space for the bands to play, and it soon snowballed into becoming his full-time job. He ran the venue (called Kilby Court), booking bands such as The Shins, Death Cab for Cutie, Rilo Kiley, and thousands of others, all the while still building furniture on the side. In 2000, Leia joined Team Kilby, screenprinting posters for many of the shows that came through the venue. Phil built her a studio next to his wood shop, and they lived together in a house next door, taking care of their two dogs and ever-growing family. In 2007, after the birth of their third son, Phil and Leia decided to sell the music venue to focus on other artistic endeavors (that were during daytime hours). A few months later they opened the first incarnation of Signed & Numbered, a poster shop and gallery in the downstairs of a downtown record store. The shop was going well, but people were asking for frames for their poster purchases, and not loving the choices out there for framing, Phil and Leia decided to build their own. Framing soon became the focus of the business, so they needed a bigger space. They finally settled on a warehouse space in South Salt Lake, and remodeled it to include a storefront with the full wood shop in back. Now in its 8th year, Signed & Numbered is thriving, and Phil has gone back to his first love of woodworking.
