Glenn Young studied art at Santa Clara University before serving as a photographer in the Peace Corps in The Gambia. Upon his return, he founded Artscapes, where he funnels his 20 years of professional photography and framing experience into art preservation. His clientele includes private collectors as well as museums such as the DeSaisset Museum and the San Jose Museum of Art. And to stay at the forefront of art preservation, he learns best practices and advanced techniques from the Western Regional Paper Conservation Laboratory, where paper cloning was invented.

Glenn pours all this experience and training into leading his team of trained visual artists and craftsmen. The skilled staff takes an individualized approach to framing that relies on museum-quality materials such as hand-wrapped fabric liners, French matting, and UV-filtering plexiglass for long-lasting results. In addition to housing works of art from paintings to photographs in a selection of 2,000 frames, they keep their gallery stocked with antique posters, movie posters, and paintings for elegant home decor.

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.

To the art designers at S.F. Framing, picture frames should do more than simply encase art, photos, and posters. They believe they should complement decor as well. At S.F. Framing, more than 1,200 mouldings suit all sorts of aesthetic styles, from sleek, metal frames for posters to wood frames embossed with intricate gold leafing for traditional art prints and ancestor's mug shots. They also believe that frames should offer protection and draw from more than 40 years of shared experience as they armor precious objects in museum-quality frames. This archival process uses premium materials, including acid-free paper, UV-blocking glass, and framing-grade acrylic, maintaining items in mint condition for years of display. As a bonus, some of the brands on hand have earned the approval of the Forest Stewardship Council, and some actively support reforestation programs or use reclaimed wood.

The proficient framers at Art Frame Studio employ high-quality framing materials and seldom-used techniques to efficiently preserve photographs and documents. Using rice paper and wet-paste mounting techniques, they evenly mount scrolls and other delicate objects. In addition to prints and photos, they encapsulate puzzles, needlepoint work, and keepsakes within sleek shadowbox frames. Employing museum-approved materials and conservation framing techniques, they mount historically significant documents on archival-quality matting to ensure a stable framing job, minimal exposure of the work to adhesives, and protection from studious insects.
