Client's are saying:
Matthew did a great job taking three oil paintings that I bought while I lived abroad, and mounting them on a frame. As a new arrival to the city, I shopped around to several different frame shops in San Francisco, and after meeting Matthew and Andrea, I felt that they both had a high level of skill/craftsmanship AND value/price (I was not disappointed). Matthew even offered to deliver my paintings, and when I was running late, he stayed past closing time. Great service and product - I'll be back when I pickup new pictures in the future!
Matt and Andrea did an AMAZING job on two pieces, both shadow boxes 1) a magazine and print 2) my wedding dress. They are incredible at what they do -- I could not be happier with both frames. I gave minimal instructions and they exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend working with Matt and Andrea!!
My bf and I had a blanket knitted by his great-great-grandmother that had unfortunately been ruined by a dog. I took it around to several knitting specialists and they said there was nothing they could do. There's no way we could toss such a great piece of history so we brought it to Aspect to see if they could frame it. Not only did they work with my budget, they hand sewed the blanket on to a silk back in order to not damage the blanket any further, and they hand delivered it to my apartment as a surprise anniversary gift for my bf.
Lovely people all around, and they have a great dog to keep you company if you have to wait at all in their studio.
"These guys deserve their 5 star rating! We have had them frame a half dozen items that we display at our restaurant. From prints to some cloth sacks, they did professional, consistent work. You won't be disappointed if you trust them with one of your pieces."

I loved how my two vintage (1950s United Airlines travel images) posters turned out. Matthew and Drea gave me great advice and did the installation/hanging as well. This is a great, great shop and I can't say enough good things from start to finish. Trust these guys.
Highly recommend the folks at Aspect Framing. I had 2 antique family pictures that I wanted to reframe. At first, I didn't know whether I wanted to keep and revise the existing framing or reframe them from scratch. Just talking over those options at Aspect, it became clear to me that I did want a full reframing job. I really appreciated the patience and careful attention they provided that allowed me to talk through all the details of what I wanted. The end result is exacting what I had in mind! Very pleased!
