  • Framed linocut by artist Caitlin Rueter

    Framing for a life-sized linocut!

    This was a big recent custom picture framing project – really! The finished piece clocks in at about 6′ tall by 3.5′ wide, and is framed in a nice furniture-quality square-edged frame. I used a clear acrylic for the covering, and kept the print clear of the acrylic with spacers. The 4-color print is one […]

  • Shadow box framing for rock & roll memorabilia

    Shadow box framing for rock & roll memorabilia!

    Here’s a fun custom framing project!: not one, but two sets of signed drumsticks, an all-access pass, ¬†and a great silk screened show poster… What’s that add up to? A customer’s dream vacation to Jamaica. ūüôā …Thanks for bringing it in for me to preserve & showcase in a shadow box! We went with slightly […]

  • Sketch of Monet by Mark Tobey

    Custom archival framing for turn-of-the-century sketch

    This is a sketch-from-life of Monet by American artist Mark Tobey, archivally framed and presented in mid-century lines (love these hardwood walnut profiles!). The reverse bevel on the bottom mat, and the recessing between the two mats lend some nice depth to the piece. The paper for the sketch is super sheer, and the drawing […]

    Indonesian Ram Skull

    Indonesian Carved Ram Skull framed with a custom metal mount by local artisan Daryl Rush. The mount holds the ram skull in place, but also allows for the skull to be removed if necessary. We used a linen wrap to contrast the piece and finished it off with a hardwood frame with a steel veneer. […]

  • This shop is excellent. Great people & great selection of frames & mats. They know their stuff too.

  • As a novice to custom framing, I was very pleased with the professionalism of Patrick. He helped me explore different framing options and was patient and understanding of my situation. In the end, he helped me to stretch and frame a custom commissioned painting that meant a great deal to me. I couldn’t be more […]

  • Patrick was kind enough to donate a gift certificate to my child’s school auction, which I purchased. He framed two art posters in a very quick turnaround as I wanted them to give as a gift. He spent lots of time helping me choose the right frames and when one that needed to be ordered […]

  • Amazing shop near Lake Merritt! We dropped off a painting from Italy and felt very comfortable with Patrick’s guidance. They have some unique pieces and an amazing selection of framing and matting choices! I can’t wait to see how our painting turns out and check out the next gallery opening!

    J. S. Yelp review
  • I called Panorama Framing upon a recommendation of another photographer friend. I called later in the evening and got their voicemail. I thought perhaps they had closed a little early and didn’t leave a message because in my experience, I usually have to end up calling back anyway. Imagine my surprise when about ten minutes […]

    Iliana M. Yelp Review
  • New to the area, I had already stopped at two stores to get a photograph I purchased in Stockholm framed and was wondering if I would ever find the right framer when I stumbled upon Panorama Framing. ¬†Patrick was the consummate professional, patiently offering suggestions and genuinely taking an interest in making my piece the […]
