  • Amazing veneer and inlay example by local artisan woodworker Roberto Gastelumendi. Matting shows off his inlays & frame.

    Fine artisanal woodwork by Roberto Gastelumendi

    Amazing veneer and inlay example by local artisan woodworker Roberto Gastelumendi. Matting shows off his inlays & frame. UltraClear glass on top will keep Roberto’s photographer happy ;-), and the museum quality mat will last as long as the frame. If you’re interested in a custom frame featuring Roberto’s inlay work, give us a shout!

    Letterpress print

    Framed this gift for in-house display — Love us some letterpress from the Dead Feminist series by Anagram Press! …This one is also officially the first one out of the Panorama Framing workshop – Cool!

  • Custom framed blacksmith wedge, shadowbox

    Shadowbox framing example, blacksmith wedge

    In October of 2012 we went to The Compound Gallery for their open-house and opening soiree — We got to keep a memento from the blacksmithing demo! Here it is all framed up and ready for display… Nice example of shadowbox framing for display, we think! The item has been mounted to glass, floating about […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Original painting by Carol Meyer

    Super-sleek acrylic framing, floating on the wall

    Customer wanted a very simple and contemporary acrylic “sandwich” to hold her original artwork… We cut two pieces of acrylic & sanded the edges to a nice sheen — both pieces were drilled to accommodate 4 stainless steel standoffs, which hold the frame together as well as to the wall. A very spare yet striking […]

  • Tourist map or sweet remembrance of an I Do moment?

    Italy tourism ephemera

    Tourist map of Rome, or a sweet remembrance of an “I Do!” moment? I bet I can guess This tattered and traveled piece of paper was top-mounted on a colored mat, with another mat cut around it — the white, ornamented frame is light and whimsical, while still speaking to the formal columns of Rome.


We love our clients!

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Local friends and art lovers, if you need framing/matting services, please stop by Panorama Framing, Inc. on Grand Ave. Patrick is a genius and as nice as can be! All Photo.GP and Scott Jones Photography images will be matted via his capable hands from now on. #MyHighestCompliment (Via Facebook: Photo.GP)

  • 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!

  • Wonderful frame shop with beautiful art for sale as well. Patrick is really friendly and kind and very supportive of the neighborhood. Love him and love Panorama. I will take all my framing needs here! Thanks for coming to Grand Lake.

    Molly G. Yelp review
  • Panorama framed a beautiful print that I purchased at a charity auction. I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of the matting and framing, as well as the color combination that Patrick suggested. Top notch!
