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.
The Framer's Workshop is a family-owned business that has been servicing the San Francisco Bay area for more than 30 years. Their wide variety of framing services include archival methods to ensure your pictures pass the multiple-choice test of time, green techniques, which use sustainable and eco-friendly materials, and wizard computerized mat cutting to form your photos into any unusual or snazzy shape you fancy.
The dedicated framers at Artistic Expert Picture Framing protect artwork, personal photographs, and mementos with a vast array of shapes and moldings that prepare them for display. The framers walk customers through the creative, and often confusing, process, consulting with clients before custom-sizing the frame or shadow box to fit paintings or war medals of any size. Conservation grade materials, such as acid-free archival paper and UV-protecting glass, ensure timeless treasures keep guarded against fading and bleeding.
Few things can derail a family photo like a crying child. However, though the tear-soaked cheeks and scowling faces may seem disastrous, they allow the photographers at Dekker Photography to capture what they're after: personality. They've been snapping fun, personal photos at weddings and family photo shoots for the past decade. Though they happily welcome subjects into their studio, they also haul their gear to local spots, such as Baker Beach, Crissy Field, Lyon Street Steps, and the place where the Golden Gate Bridge intersects with a pot of gold. As an example of the dedication to making subjects feel comfortable in front of the camera, each boudoir photo shoot is directed by a female photographer, includes ample wardrobe changes, and offers the option for a hairstylist and makeup artist to glam up subjects before the shoot.
