I had a shadow box made for my son a little while ago. The box was a birthday present which held VIP tickets, a signed picture ,a poster and back stage placards of a Papa Roach concert my son and i attended a few years ago. Kathy and I designed the box and she designed the arrangement of the contents and floated the placards perfectly. I was very happy with the outcome. I happen to be somewhat of a perfectionist. Job well done. I will be back for more artwork to be framed in the near future. Thanks again.

Richard went out of his way to do a custom matter order for me. He turned it around quickly and at the best price I'd received after calling a number of different framing stores. He even had some great suggestions for alternative ways to matte the images. Everyone in the shop was great!

Kathy was as helpful as can be with a project I was working on, custom cutting mats for me and helping me to get my presentation pieces ready for a gallery show. Highly recommend!

Great service and quality framing.



Kathy and her son are very nice and I've been having them frame up my posters for the past year. Definitely recommend, and the prices are fair.

I had an original oil painting and brought it, and the artist, into The Great Frame Up. We were delighted with the extent of sample frames and Kathy has even more on her computer. She was able to photograph the artwork advise us on different frame structures and to then render a photo that showed what the chosen frame would look like on the actual painting. She was knowledgeable and patient as we took almost an hour with her and made our decision. The price was fair. This is certainly my "forever" choice in frame shops.



Fantastic place. I've gotten my college and law school diplomas framed here, along with the front page of the LA Times from when the Dodgers won the world series. I love the attitude from the people here, super friendly and welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable on design. If you are still figuring out how you want something framed they helped me decide some colors and textures (including telling me they had a blue felt that matched Dodger Blue!).

I will forever be coming here as long as I need *good* frames and as long as they are here. And the prices are fair for what you get. A good frame isn't cheap, but the quality of work from them is very much worth the price.
