Beautiful work! Personalized, timely service! I was rushing to get the house ready for family visitors, desperate to have a just-discovered treasured photo framed right away. Unearthed the photo one night; called these folks the next day. They not only waited for me to arrive right at their closing time, but turned the job around one day later! And agreed to accommodate my schedule and let me in early to pick it up. In a flash, just the right frame and a truly complementary mat I wouldn't have thought to pick myself. They showed respect for the beauty of this 80-year-old photo, and renewed it for the next generation, with courtesy, good humor, and a good, fair price.
Caroline is a master at framing. Her attention detail is excellent. There's been many times I've come in with a piece to frame with no idea or direction as to what I want the finished product to look like. Every time her guidance has provided a OUTSTANDING result. She's the best framer in the city and well worth the visit. The customer service is outstanding and she treats everyone like they are friends. Plus, the dogs are fun to play with too!
I went into the store knowing I wanted to get three diplomas framed for a special person. Caroline spent close to one hour showing me different frames and mats. She was very patient and helped me get through my frustration (I couldn't make up my mind!). Finally I picked out framing material and a mat but did not really knowing what the final look would be. Caroline assured me it would be beautiful and she was right. The framing was elegant and very professionally done.
I found Caroline to be very friendly while maintaining her professionalism. I also felt like I was in someones home instead of a place of business. Yes, Caroline has a dog (or two). She kept her pet in the back room until I asked if he could come out. I like dogs and hers were cute, fluffy, and friendly....made her place all that more comfortable.
I definitely got my money's worth and more.
Caroline and Wade were amazing to work with. I had a tight deadline for surprising my wife with a large custom frame. They were able to meet my timeline (even making a trip into work just to finish my picture on a day when most people were afraid to leave their driveway due to ice and snow on the road). From the moment I entered the store I felt comfortable and knew I was in knowledgeable and experienced hands. They were able to work with my budget and provide me with a gorgeous frame and museum glass to compliment a picture that my wife and I now have hanging in our dining room. They were extremely friendly, answered all my questions thoroughly, and had great ideas concerning matting, texture, and the style of the frame. I couldn't have been happier and will go back to them for future projects. I have already referred my father in law (which is really laying it out on the line) to them, and he has been very pleased. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a professionally framed picture with world class service to accompany it!
Ecstatic! Overjoyed! Thrilled! This is how I felt when I picked up my 3 custom framed portraits this past Friday, 10/22. I honestly couldn't have imagined them to turn out as well as they did. Simply perfection!
These three pieces were going to be the focal point in our living room so I was determined to find frames that would be equally spectacular. Unfortunately, I don't have a creative bone in my body or an artistic eye for that matter and knew I needed to find someone who'd be able to advise me and give me direction. Well, Carolyn and team did just that and more! She made a number of suggestions and was incredibly patient during what became an extremely slow decision making process on my part. Not once did she show any frustration. She just continued to work closely with me and come up with additional options. It was as if she was equally invested in finding the "perfect" frame for me as I was. Needless to say, I can't stop smiling every time I see them in our living room.
I've gone to several frame shops, but this one is the best. I needed a small piece of art framed on the cheap and they made it look fabulous. I then brought in a larger poster that was going to be a little pricier and they gave me the best deal ever. They said they would work within my budget and they DID!!
I used this frame shop for 17 years when they were in the University Village. They moved across the street and I love the new space. Lots of art to look at , beautiful framing, nice staff..and they have a parking garage right underneath. It's a great place to get your framing done...This shop seems to have a lot of fun frames to choose from...and they always work with my budget...which always helps. Try them out.
The people that work at this frame shop really care about their customers. They've been in business for 18 years....same owner..same thoughtful, caring staff. They are willing to work with any budget..from College students, to Doctors at the local hospital...Everyone can find something great here!!
THEY SAVED THE DAY!
I came in with eleven large prints that i needed framed elegantly and economically within days. Carolyn jumped right in and showed me how easily and beautifully it could be done. Her years of experience were apparent instantly and I felt immediately that I'd made the right choice.
Excellent, friendly personal service.
Great atmosphere, family owned local business... just great all around.
Michaels? Aaron Brothers? Forget it. Just Go Here.
I'll be bringing much more work to this shop.
I would highly recommend this frame shop to any one that has framing to be done. Medium price range, very helpful and the finished product was great.
I was in a panic...I had to get a couple pieces of art framed quickly and the owner of this frame shop really helped me out. The cost was low and the service was quick. The quality of the framing didn't suffer at all, either. If you need something framed, I'd highly recommend this place.
I recently got some sports memorabilia framed at this shop. I framed a jersey, some tickets , photo and some baseball cards all in the same frame. They look great in my husbands sports room. It was a present and had to be done in a short time. They got it done...It looked better than I could have imagined. While I was there, I bought a vintage pennant for my husband as well. We think this place ROCKS!!!!
I've been to several frame shops in the greater Seattle area, and this is by far the friendliest! If you want your art to look fabulous, go here for sure. It's about the same price as if you do it yourself, and they offer great looking frames that other frame shops just don't have. I find myself looking for art just to fit into one of my many favorite frames!!! It's fun and low pressure.
12/18/2008This place is wonderful!!! You'll be surprised when they start designing your framing. ...I had a sentimental piece framed here and they really went above and beyond what they needed to do. They gave me a dicount on a frame they had in stock, and didn't charge me full price for a mat they had....it was still pricey, but well worth it. I feel good about leaving my art in their shop. Very professional staff..they know what they are doing.
It's a beautiful shop with friendly, outgoing staff. I didn't know what I wanted when I went in, they helped me pick out mats and frames,,,,the end product came out beautiful! I have since had many things framed here and everything looks great and it's all done with attention to detail, and highest of quality. I like their unique style and eagerness to help. Have fun!!!
They do georgeous framing!!! They frame everything on site..and I like the fact that the people that work there know what they're doing. I had a couple items custom framed, and when I needed a premade frame, they were nice enough to guide me to a shop in the village that carried standard frames, then cut a mat for me later..no charge... Nice
I had several friends that have framed at this store and liked how their art was framed so I went in and found the staff to be very helpful and had great ideas. I had no idea how to pick out frames, but the young lady at the front counter had good ideas. I will go back for sure. They really take a personal interest in all the work that is done.
I did some framing at this shop and would recomend it to anyone. The staff had really unique ways of designing and had a lot of patience picking out frames and matting. Framing is expensive...but they worked with my budget and it all turned out better than I could have imagined.
