Since its inception in the early 1980s, Underglass Framing has crafted custom frames that have housed pictures, paintings, and even flags. Made up of artists and experienced framers alike, Underglass's staff uses their expert judgment to accent any artwork with custom woodwork, conservation acrylics, or museum-quality frames. Underglass makes decisions easy with mat-board samples and a wide selection of framed examples, and they strive to integrate the work of art into each client's home design, whether it's art deco or an art-deco-giraffe-print fusion.
Paul Mahder Gallery showcases contemporary works of art and every two months, presents new exhibits created by painters, sculptors, and photographers from around the globe. Opened in conjunction with the gallery in 2007, Paul Mahder Framing extends the shop's services into the realm of preservation, helping customers artfully safeguard keepsakes without having to freeze them in a mixture of finger-paint and carbonite. Head designer Richard Plagmann and expert framer Jonathan W. Wind join forces to encase a wide range of items, from 3-D objects and family portraits to oversized mementos. They also offer complementary onsite consultations, and every project is completed in house.
Over the past 25 years, Cheap Pete’s framers have honed their technique to a science, creating high-quality framing for any type of artwork, document, or object. Four Bay Area locations stock a huge selection of ready-made frames, including environmentally friendly options crafted from sustainably harvested pine or bamboo. Collage frames display a multitude of photos, showcasing favorite family memories or charting the development of a tiny infant into an adult-size infant. Customers can also create DIY frames with a large selection of framing tools and supplies.
Cheap Pete’s custom-framing services give customers the choice of more than 300 styles of mouldings, five types of glass, and a rainbow of mat colors. Shadowboxes display three-dimensional objects such as sports jerseys, matchbox cars, or exhibitionistic human beings. The shop also stretches canvases onto canvas bars, readying them to be hung at home or on the walls of a gallery.
Backed by more than seven decades of dedicated services, FLAX supports the local art community. The store boasts a massive, expansive interior stocked with a pupil-widening 40,000+ items—including paints, brushes, canvasses, calendars, blank bound books, age-appropriate art kits, and practically anything related to stroking, sketching, molding, framing, journaling, revolutionizing, and mind-caressing. Students and pros alike can open up the art box and toss in a few glossy Montana paint tubes ($6.75 each), industry-standard Copic Sketch Markers ($5.89 each), and oil-based DecoColor Paint Markers ($2.79–$2.99), while fashionista artisans remix essentials with inspired Cavallini 2011 planners ($13.95) and cute, inedible yet enviable KOKO 2010 lunch bags ($24–$29.50).
Cruise around the city while brushing up on basic camera skills and honing an eye for composition during a two-hour photography workshop led by professional photon-wrangler John Ater, who has shot for the likes of Modern Luxury magazine and Dillard's. The workshop requires snap-happy shutterbugs to bring their own personal cameras, which may include traditional point-and-shooters, digital SLRs, or parlor-sized camerae obscurae. During the course of the photo trek, students are guided through the Mission, the Castro, the Embarcadero, or Chinatown, so comfortable clothes, shoes, and tracking devices are highly suggested. Check out the FAQs and view the current schedule and sign up for the workshop online.
Mission: Comics & Art is dedicated to aligning the world of illustration's myriad factions, situating graphic novels beside art books, comic books, T-shirts, and original artwork for sale on the walls. Customers can tread among the store's colorful aisles, leafing through finds such as The Walking Dead TPB Vol. 1 ($9.99) or learning about the neighborhood’s history through its murals and graphic mythology in the Comic Book Guide to the Mission ($15). Other comic collectibles include Nonplayer #1 ($2.99) and The Ultimates: Ultimate Collection, Vol. 1 ($34.99). As they peruse, customers are encouraged to converse and ask questions such as, "Is this Wonder Woman outfit appropriate for my errands?"
Behind a scarlet door buzzes Dickerman Prints' cadre of technicians, busily cropping, printing, and touching up memories frozen in glossy photographic amber. A Polielettronica LaserLab printer embosses Fujicolor crystal archive paper with chromogenic prints of images fed from the lab's Mac workstations or FTP upload site. A selection of archival papers hums happily through the shop's Epson inkjet printer, yielding images that are up to 64 inches wide and capable of withstanding the passage of time and the grubby hands of time travelers. Existing photos and negatives become indelible when scanned and digitized, and the lab's crew also retouches and mounts photos. The techs process film in a darkroom to keep jealous computers from editing themselves into family photos.
Isla Studio's professional photographers expresses the world and its people through richly colored fine-art images. Whether dealing with landscapes, buildings, portraits, or UFOs, the team waits for a moment to reveal itself, combining the timing of photojournalism with a carefully considered emotional resonance.

Root Division is an organization of Bay Area artists working for a livable existence in an arts and arts education community.
Root Division's mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation.
I'm a people photographer and my goal is to capture who you are, not just what you look like.
I have the knack of getting the most camera-phobic people to relax and be themselves. It's like getting candid photos by hiding in plain sight.
Although I'm based in SF, I travel far and wide.

For 15 years, the friendly and knowledgeable staff at locally-owned-and-operated Framed and Cornered have been helping people preserve precious memories and fine art. Patrons browse thousands of framing samples and hundreds of mat colors while getting valuable input from art-degreed team members. The crew specializes in archival framing, using modern conservation techniques such as acid-free mats and UV-protective glass to guard keepsakes against damage.
The talented technicians also perform custom framing to preserve diplomas, sports jerseys, and other collectibles.
Like a portrait museum whose curator has gone a bit nutty, Back to the Picture on Valencia Street has but a few inches of blank wall space to spare. Along with its sister shop in SoMa, this artsy frame shop that doubles as a gallery has been gilding the lily that is San Francisco's art for almost 30 years. The process of selecting the best frame for a valuable canvas can be an expensive ordeal, but Back to the Picture's Randy Figueres substitutes anxiety for thoughtfulness, offering solid advice on the fine points of home decorating, plus expert knowledge on how best to mount that fragile antique photograph.
Doré Studio is the oldest photography studio in San Francisco.
Founded in 1951 by the mother of the current proprietor, the studio specializes in capturing life’s most important moments through modern digital imaging technology and a sense of old-school glamor. A vein of 1930s Hollywood runs through the in-house productions here, where divas lay on the divans as makeup artists prep them as if for a would be screen test. The studio also provides tuxes and formal wear for guys. Be it senior portraits, quinceañeras or nostalgic re-enactments of grainy, sepia-toned photos, Doré shows its clients in the best possible light.
