The archival specialists at Willow Glen Art & Frame have occupied the same Lincoln Avenue storefront for more than 35 years, and their dedication to the craft remains evident in the way they eschew standard gallery framing techniques in favor of fully customized picture frames. Knowing that each unhung canvas that enters their store is someone’s precious heirloom or priceless work of art, the framers take care to consult with customers before suggesting wood, metal, or acrylic styles to best complement the object. Every one-of-a-kind frame comes into being with the assistance of computer-guided mat-cutting technology and glass that protects against harsh UV waves, ensuring that still-life paintings of grapes do not dry into raisins over the years.

The expert staff at Fine Arts Giclee & Frame employs more than 20 years of in-house custom-framing experience and visualization software to fit prized works and items within keenly matched borders. An array of more than 1,000 mouldings runs the gamut from simple wood or lacquer to elaborately etched metal, and archival mats guard picture edges with sheets free of acid. Customers can shield a cherished album cover behind UV glass with a 2-inch mat and black hardwood moulding ($88) or ornament the wall with a diploma ($136.40) to recall enlightening bouts of lunchroom gossip. A 16"x20" photo or print, cushioned by a gallery back, nestles safely behind premium clear glass ($232.04). Patrons with pieces in tow can seek counsel from on-site employees and the visualization software, which depicts how artwork would look in specific frames or with all of its human subjects replaced by poker-playing dogs. The staff can complete most framing services within 10 business days.
