About Keepsake Images

Keepsake Images is owned an operated by Jeff Wolfe and Candy Wilson. Jeff and his wife Lissa, owned and operated a frame shop in Charlotte, NC. Candy was a professional artist who worked part time for them as a framer. They began cutting word mats as special orders only for customers that came into the store. They immediately became very popular so they did a window display to show what was available for their customers to order. Soon, Candy began to take a print rack full of mats to her art shows and selling them along with her watercolor paintings. Within a couple of months Candy was dedicating ½ of her booth space to the word mats and ½ to her watercolors. As the selection of mats and their popularity grew, Jeff and Candy decided to go full time into the word mat business. Candy agreed to take a hiatis from her art and do the craft shows with the mats only. Within a few months, Jeff’s wife Lissa, began to travel with Candy and help at the shows. Jeff was the primary mat cutter at this point so he stayed behind and kept the inventory up to date. As the business continued to grow, they purchased their first computerized mat cutter and set it up in Jeff’s garage and the framing was done in Candy’s garage. Jeff and Lissa closed their frame shop and the business was officially born!
