Classic

Our classic frames offer budget-friendly options for your framing projects. They work well on awards and certificates. They are perfect for when you need a frame in a custom size quickly.  For more information or a quote, send us an email.

Turnaround time varies from one or two days to a week depending on the quantity. We value quality over speed which is why all of our frames are vised by hand to insure strong corners.

The materials used to make our classic frames come from suppliers who are committed to quality and sustainability. Studio Moulding is a FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and COC (Chain of Custody) certified company.

PictureWoods, based in Boulder, Colorado, mills only renewable North American hardwoods including walnut, ash, white oak, hard maple and cherry. Their hand-finished moulding maintains the beauty of the wood.

 

Specialty

Our specialty frames are made using the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. They elevate any piece of artwork from a hand-written note to a large format photograph into a one of a kind piece.

Specialty frames come in contemporary, modern or traditional styles. They are built using ‘old-world’ techniques such as splined corners and water gilding.

From traditional, carved, gold-leaf period frames to contemporary silver-leaf box frames to rounded corner, tiger maple to stainless steel floaters, our extraordinary selection makes us one of the few ‘true’ custom framing shops in the Bay Area.

Our clients include Save the Redwoods, Twitch, City Arts & Lectures, ODADA, Cloudflare, The CJM, Fehr & Peers, Matson Navigation, Schramsberg Winery, and the St. Regis Hotel and Residences.

Custom Mirrors

A custom framed mirrors can be made in any size, shape or finish to complement your home’s style.

Specialty mirror options include heavy and light antique, blue, smoke and starphire. Starphire mirror glass provides the truest, clearest reflection.

When fitting mirror glass into frames, we use a special adhesive to secure it to the backing material. This prevents the mirror from shattering in the event of an impact.

Our framed mirrors come with all the necessary hanging hardware and we offer delivery and installation services. Email for a quote.

Acrylic Boxes

Acrylic boxes are made to hold two and three-dimensional pieces such as textiles and objects. They are designed to either hang on a wall or sit on a table top.

Boxes that hang on walls are five-sided. The back of the box is a wood frame covered in fabric, museum board or other material and then the artwork is placed on that and the box is attached to the frame with screws.

This design is often used for tapestries, masks, and other three dimensional pieces.

Acrylic boxes can be made with clear, uv filtering or optium museum acrylic. For a quote on a custom acrylic box send us an email.
