Picture Frame Factory: what do users think?


Lesley Anne Warner: Terrible service. Person working there was impatient and acted like the pieces I was trying to frame were cheap and that he didn’t need my money. I went to ArtFolio and spent my $3500 framing my work instead and they did an amazing job. Don’t waste your time with this place.

Farha Tahir: I've gotten two large pieces framed at Picture Frame Factory and each was meticulously, carefully, and beautifully done. The pricing was comparable to others I spoke with, and the Picture Frame Factory team was flexible with pickup. I'll definitely be going back.
Response: Thank you so much Farha for your excellent review! As a small business at this time, your kindness and loyalty mean so much! We greatly appreciate the time you took to support us!

Emily Benson: Picture Frame Factory is great! They are always on time, if not early, with framing projects, and they offer reliable, excellent work. We've had several odd requests (having graffiti canvasses framed, oddly sized custom prints, etc.), and Picture Frame Factory always does a wonderful job. For the latest piece, he even added a custom (and very large!) mat for our piece at no additional charge. He also helped me get it into the Uber XL I had to order to get it home. This is a really fantastic shop, and they've helped our house become a home. We're running out of wall space, but we'll be back when we up-size!

Robert Grimm: True artistic craftsmanship at this shop and wonderful people to work with. They have done several pictures for me now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for framing.
Response: It was a pleasure meeting you! Thank you so much for your excellent review It really means a great deal to us for you to take the time to support our small business. Thanks again! Kamran

Alissa Swango: I'm very happy with the selection and quality of my framing job. The owners were adamant about getting the job right, and I appreciate the faster-than-expected turn around times. The backing + hanger is super secure and nicer than other places I've used.

Jillian MacMaster: Picture Frame Factory did such an amazing job at mounting an original piece of art to foam board. I will definitely return in the future. They are so kind and accommodating. I had a great experience!
Response: Thank you so much Jillian!! Best of luck to you on your exhibition tonight.

Rahi Patel: The Picture Frame factory did an incredible job making a custom frame for a beautiful print I purchased. They walked me through all the different options and gave me their expert opinion on what would look best. They finished the custom frame early and it came out stunning! Impeccable quality and fantastic service.
Response: Thank you so much Rahi for your fabulous review! We truly appreciate your business and support. It has been a pleasure working with you on your framing needs! Kamran

Elaine Heinzman: I’ve been a Picture Frame Factory customer for almost 15 years. Kamran has a great eye for the frames and matting that will not just complement, but really showcase, the art or object you’re having framed. He’s collaborative, thoughtful, and detail-oriented about what you might be looking for. The work they’ve done on dozens of pieces I’ve brought in is incredible.
Response: Thank you Elaine for this incredible review! It means so much during this challenging time for small businesses. It truly has been a pleasure working together to achieve the perfect look for your beautiful artwork throughout the years. Kamran

Inna Rubin: They do such beautiful work! I’ve had six pieces framed here and each one turned out wonderfully. The owners are also genuinely kind. They even helped me carry my newly framed pieces out to my Uber.
Response: Inna, it is always a pleasure working with you on your awesome pieces. Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review!

Lindsey W.: Picture Frame Factory is one of the rare places these days that provides truly exceptional customer service. The owner and staff are not just helpful and kind, but deeply knowledgeable about frames, mats and how to best display your artwork. I had a particularly treasured photo of my son that I was having trouble finding a frame for in all the box stores, so I decided to get a bit more serious about my search and ended up here. Kamran walked me through the myriad of available options and helped me find the perfect frame. The experience was topped off by a quick turnaround and reasonable price. I'll be back!

Framebridge Union Market: what do users think?


Tim Macchi: Great staff. Always super helpful. Some days they are definitely understaffed and you might have to wait. Prices are very reasonable and I’m happy with how my stuff has turned out
Response: Thank you for the kind words for our staff. We are delighted to hear that the frames turned out so well! We hope to see you again soon!

Khadija Jahfiya: Disappointed in my first experience at Framebridge. I scheduled an appointment a few days in advance. When I got there, there was one person working in the store and they were finishing up with a customer. They finished about ten minutes after my appointment was scheduled to start. They then proceeded to let me know that they would be helping the next customer then would get to me in about half an hour or so. I understand the circumstances and constraints that we are all living under due to COVID but I would have appreciated prior communication if there was no intention of honoring the appointment time. I would have planned my time differently. Perhaps Framebridge can consider not taking appointments on days when they will be short staffed or on days when there is less certainty on timing.
Response: Hi Khadija, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We want to ensure we provide all of our customers with a wonderful and easy experience and we are so sorry we have fallen short of that goal. I am so sorry to hear about your experience and lengthy wait. We absolutely had every intention of honoring your appointment and we were looking forward to helping you frame your art. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were not staffed as much as normal, and we had fallen behind in assisting the customers that had previous appointments. We should have absolutely informed you of this situation, and I apologize that we were unable to call you ahead of time to let you know of our delay. We truly appreciate your feedback on this experience and we have discussed this with all of our store teams to ensure a situation like this is avoided in the future. We strive to provide our customers with an experience that is seamless and reliable, and we hope you will give us another opportunity to provide you with a more standard Framebridge experience. Kind regards,

Carley Lester: This was my first time having something framed. Vanessa and Karen were patient and knowledgeable about the process and were so relatable. I ended up having 3 pictures framed for a great price and just in time for Father's Day. Highly recommend 👌🏾and will be back soon!

Cory Miller: What a gem of a store! I’ve loved going to the 14th st location and the Union Market store does not disappoint. Thanks to Matt for helping me frame some new artwork!

Manfred Phemister: Lovely store!

Angie Coates: Never been there
Response: Hi Angie! We hope that you will be able to drop in sometime soon!

Framebridge 14th Street DC: what do users think?


Jessica Buckley: Framebridge lost two out of three original artworks I sent. I had to inquire after 8 weeks of not receiving my order and they finally admitted they lost the art in the warehouse. They offered me about 300 insurance to cover the cost of the work. What a joke. I never should have sent the work in, however my local frame shop closed down due to covid. The one artwork they did frame fell off the mount a month after I got it. Do not send anything you care for or that cannot be replaced.
Response: The care of our customers’ art is always our number one priority and we are very sorry that we have let you down. While it’s always hard to hear such distressing news, we thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We take matters like this very seriously. Please reach out to us at support@framebridge.com us at your earliest convenience to discuss any unresolved issues. We are here to help in any way that we can.

Britney Lewis: I’ve used Framebridge numerous times and the results are always great. I visited the store recently to frame two paintings. I wanted them to match a painting I framed in 2018 and the store associates were extremely helpful in pulling up my old order and ensure everything matched.
Response: Thank you for continuing to frame with us. We love seeing frame collections grow as people find more art and moments to display on their walls!

Keri Stoever: I went in with some license plates to frame and the staff was very helpful and super friendly. I had my dog with me and they were even so sweet as to greet him and offer him a treat. I got the same stellar service when I returned to pick up my piece. A few weeks after picking up my order, I realized I had lost the hardware needed to hang the frame and when I went back to the store, they remembered me (and my dog!) and were able to give me the nails and brackets I needed. Highly recommend and will definitely be back for all my framing needs.
Response: Hi Keri! We are so glad you liked your framed license plates. We can't wait to have you and Noah back in the store soon :)

Jmorsedc: Framebridge is the most inept framing shop I’ve ever tried. I had two pieces framed there (at the same time), and both came back looking like a do-it-yourself project from a craft store. The larger piece I had framed had to be returned three times and still isn’t correct - the individual items in the frame are crooked and unevenly spaced. It looks like the person doing the project was drunk or high. Do not use them under any circumstances.
Response: We are very sorry to hear that your frames arrived with the art not straight and evenly spaced. We do have a 100% Happiness Guarantee and would appreciate the opportunity to make sure that both of your frames are perfect. Please reach out to us with your order number. You can reach us either at support@framebridge.com or through your local retail store so that we may assist in making this happen.

Julia Miller: The worst experience ever. It took two months to get two works framed. One of them was done badly so it had to be redone. My sister has had to have hers redone twice. The management at the 14th Street store also gave me attitude. This was my first experience with Framebridge and it will definitely be my last.
Response: Julia, we strive to make custom framing fun, easy, and stress-free. We are so disappointed to hear that we have fallen far short of that goal for you and your sister. Please reach out to us at support@framebridge.com so that we can discuss how to best

Sara (Bun): I've had four pieces framed at this shop -- three textiles and a print. The service is quick, helpful, and pleasant. The ambiance is friendly and since I know their stock pretty well, I can get in and out pretty quickly. Always an easy, pleasant experience. Big fan.
Response: Hi Sara, thanks for your review! We're so happy to hear that you've had a great experience in the store and hope we can help you with more projects in the future. See you soon!

Diana Shin: Horrible experience. Horrid communication and follow-through. Do not use Framebridge to frame artwork that has any sentimental or material value. I dropped off an unstretched oil on canvas painting 5 weeks ago. When I still had not received my art back after 4 weeks, I followed up with customer service. Apparently, the frame that I had ordered was out of stock, but no one on their team had bothered to inform me!! This was ironic, because several weeks earlier, one of their customer support specialists had reached out to me to suggest that I go with a different frame and also use a mat and put it behind acrylic glass, which they themselves do not advise for oil paintings. I declined. It makes me wonder if they had known earlier that the frame I ordered was out of stock, and then just literally dropped the ball until I followed up. To their credit, when I said that I did not want any of the alternative frames they suggested, they did give back a refund. However, the anxiety and time lost that I have incurred due to their carelessness has not been worth it, and I greatly regret choosing Framebridge. As of today, even after several inquiries, I still have not received confirmation that my artwork is being stored properly. Nor do I have a tracking number for the return of my artwork. Framebridge's website only shows you 5 star ratings unless you filter for the bad reviews, and it seems that there have been numerous cases where people have had their artwork damaged or lost. Now I am even more worried that after all this time and back and forth, whether I am even going to be able to receive my artwork in an undamaged condition, even if unframed.
Response: Diana, thank you for taking the time to write this review of your experience. We strive to make the process of framing fast and easy and have regrettably not lived up to that promise. We are truly sorry for the delay in communicating with you. Please know that the safety and security of art is our top priority and we apologize if our delay caused you any undue anxiety. Your art is in the condition that it was received and on it's way back to you. Our team has emailed you with a photo of your art and tracking information. If there is anything else we can do for you, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Griffin Duy: Very pleased with my Framebridge experience. Karen was great working with me to patiently find which frame I needed for my Suzanne Vega vintage article. Pleasant time and would recommend! :)
Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your visit, we loved having you!

Beth Mccollum: I love this store! Charming and friendly, I came in with a framing request for a memorial for a pet that had passed away. The staff was both incredibly helpful with suggestions on what to do (ideas on how to best frame an inked paw print) but also really kind. When my framed print arrived to my house, I was very pleased with the quality and immediately proud to hang it in memory of my furry friend. I will definitely be using Framebridge for all my framing needs!
Response: Thank you so much for leaving your review, Beth! We're so glad we could help you frame a memory of your special furry friend. We look forward to seeing you in the store again soon!

Patrick Carter: I went to Framebridge to have a family heirloom re-framed with a more modern frame. What a colossal waste of time and effort this has turned out to be... First the salesman we worked with was not at all helpful and seemed very rushed; acting like we were taking up his precious time even-though he rushed us out the door in less than 5 minutes. I specifically asked and he also assured us that the painting would be insured even when I told him the value. He did not explain that the limit on insurance was $5000 when my piece is worth several times more: He also did not explain that the art would be shipped out of the store. He asked which frame we wanted without offering suggestions. I stated I liked Beverly from what I had seen on-line. He said "Ok" and tapped away at the iPad. I asked if I could see a sample and he begrudgingly took one out of the lower drawer and placed it on the corner of the canvas only to immediately take it and place it back in the drawer; again, very rushed. The fact that he did not offer to see the frame in person was quite odd and rude. He obviously gave NO indication that the frame selected was not possible. How could he? He barely left the frame on the piece for 10 seconds... All around a horrible experience. I highly recommend that there is better training of the sales staff so this doesn't happen to other customers and trades people. They also deleted this review off their official Framebridge website.
Response: Patrick, We’re very sorry to hear of your experience at our 14th Street store. Making our customers happy is our priority and your experience certainly fell short. I understand a member of our team followed up with you today. We are appreciative for the opportunity to learn from our shortcomings and hope you will give us the opportunity to make this up to you in the future. If you have any further questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out to support@framebridge.com.

Frame of Mine: what do users think?


Karen cohen: Best frame shop around town. Staff very helpful and prices are affordable. Great selection of frames, mat boards and even a small art gallery to buy fun art by local artists.

Marie-B CDA: A wonderful frame shop and a very pleasant gallery. Staff is very qualified and friendly. I highly recommend Frame of Mine for your framing needs and to purchase art. There is lot to choose from.

Becca Gentile: The folks at Frame of Mine have always been incredibly helpful! I've gone there multiple times to get things framed. Twice, it was for weddings and they did a rush job for me so I could have it in time - one time they even did it the same day! Their work is always beautifully done and when you go into the shop they are very helpful about picking out mats and frames based on what you're looking for.

Mary Randolph Gannon: We had a wonderful experience at Frame of Mine and are truly satisfied with their work. We had both large expensive pieces and our small child's work framed and both turned out exactly as we'd planned. Would certainly use them again and recommend them to friends!

Chris Nevitt: We have used the services of Frame of Mine for years, when we lived on Capital Hill and even since we have moved to another part of Washington with framing shops much nearer by. A lot we have done were oddities we picked up on foreign trips. During all that time, we have enjoyed the feeling that when we walk in their door, we are the only customers that matter. We always get undivided, creative and professional attention. The results hang on our walls, still handsome and fresh after all those years. It is nice to have good friends who are also expert framers!

Emmalee Gruesen: I've had several projects completed by Frame of Mine, and I couldn't recommend them more! My first visit they put me on the listserv and told me to come back in a few weeks, when they were having a sale; ever since I've made a point to go when they have sales, as custom framing is a luxury for me. My first experience with Frame of Mine they completed a set of three prints I'd bought online. At the recommendation of Cissy, I went with a bold orange frame and beige mat, which folks always complement. Of course, I have to share the print source, but I credit Frame of Mine for being the centerpiece they are, as they really make the room. The most recent project they completed for me was to restore an etching that was my grandfather's. Years of acidic paper and mold had done a number on the piece, so I thought for sure much of the piece would need to be cut down. Thankfully, Frame of Mine contracted with a National Gallery of Art conservator who did a remarkable job for a reasonable sum. They were very communicative with their timelines, and even though I told them I didn't need it before Christmas, it was ready and made for a very welcome addition to my home just in time for the holiday. Several employees helped me pick the frame and mat, as what I'd decided on initially didn't quite work once the piece had been cleaned. Of course, it looks great in the space, and I was glad I trusted their instincts. Again, I can't recommend Frame of Mine highly enough. My continued patronage and referrals to friends and neighbors are my [selfish?] way of ensuring a great Capitol Hill business will be around for many more years to come!

Karen: A very nice frame shop. They do good work. During the pandemic they exhibited local art in one window section to support local artists.

Molly Barackman: I have been going to Frame of Mine for years. The staff members are patient and friendly, always willing to talk through your ideas about framing your artwork if you are not sure what you want to do with it. I started visiting them in 2010 when I lived in Eastern Market, and still make the drive to them now that I'm in a new neighborhood - it's always worth it!

Brian Williams: Good craftsmanship and customer service, but not cheap! As with many things, quality has a cost. Have had at least 6 -10 pieces framed over several years through various moves.
Response: Thank you Brian!

Colleen Theresa Rutledge Brown: Wonderful neighborhood store. Great people. Beautiful work. I have had them mat and frame two historic maps we got from our travels. They took great care in selecting a frame and mat to complement the maps and play up the feel of the location. It was a pleasure working with them.

18th Street Framing: what do users think?


Ben Dussault: They fixed a completely broken frame and mirror (which fell off the wall due to poor previous installation) to look like new and helped hang it perfectly. I ended up choosing them because they were one of the few shops in the area that seemed to do both mirror replacement and frame repair themselves. Their pricing was very fair as well. I was very happy with the work and will go back!
Response: We appreciate your Support!!!

Judah: Phenomenal job every time. Attention to detail. Clean finishes. You get what you pay for. Cant recommend them enough.
Response: We appreciate your business!!!

Jonas Heering: I got two prints framed here and was extremely happy with the experience and the outcome. They finished my order very quickly, more than a week ahead of the date they told me when I placed the order. The framing is done very well and very high quality and the prices are very reasonable compared to some other custom framing stores.

Bob McDonald: Good shop, I have been pleased with everything I get framed here. They’re not pushy at all.
Response: Dear Mr. McDonald Thank you for your honest review. We always appreciate your business!!!

Alissa Williams: 18th street framing has a really welcoming team and they were more than helpful in helping me frame some art of time with the best matting and frame for my artwork! I loved it there and there is the cutest dog in the store! Definitely has a mom and pop feel to the store and everyone was super professional! They got me my framed work back in no time and for a really good price. Thanks AK! I love it and will definitely be returning the next time I need something framed.
Response: Alissa, we appreciate your comment, and we hope to see you again soon. AK

T Harris: Awesome team of people working here! as an artist I struggle to find framers who are knowledgeable about handling artwork and after working with AK i will never use another frame shop. The staff here is patient, knowledgeable & attentive and my paintings were framed beautifully!

Nickolas Beck: AK - the owner is awesome! He takes the time to explain how the matting and framing will look with what you're having framed. The variety that he has is just simply amazing! His conservation glass works great as I've had some vintage posters and lithographs framed and I can tell that they're not deteriorating like they were in their previous frames.

Nathaniel Myers: Great place - the work is fantastic, the prices fair, and the experience enjoyable and low pressure. AK and his son are super helpful, have great aesthetic judgement, and are straightforward about pricing, without any upselling. Will definitely go back.
Response: We appreciate your business!!!

Mike Lavoie: I've had two items of great personal significance framed here, and they did a fantastic job. The owner has a Master's Degree in preservation studies, and does his job with obvious joy and the utmost professionalism. The prices are comparable to other places in NW, although the attention to detail is head-and-shoulders above the rest. 18th Street Framing has my highest recommendation for framing needs.

Julia Truelove: I brought in a poster to be framed, and picked it up about two weeks later. The owner chose a great looking mat and frame, and I'm very satisfied with the work. I paid with a Groupon. Will definitely be back.

Allen Custom Frame - Appointments strongly recommended: what do users think?


mark joseph: ALLEN CUSTOM FRAME IS THE BEST IN FRAMER IN MD/DC/VA. I have had Allen Custom Frame do 12-15 high end paintings, vintage photographs, and antique woodblocks for me. They are by far the best framer in the area. Harry Biscarr, the owner is excellent and provides great service and value. I give them my highest recommendation !
Response: Mark, we want folks to get the best service while receiving quality work as well. We know how important it is to preserve and display beautiful artwork, so you can count on us to get the job done right. Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you. -Allen Custom Frame Team

Raphael Tisch: I have been coming to Alan Custom Frame since 2010, have had 9/10 pieces framed, and have never been disappointed. They have some of the best customer service and really work with you to make your piece shine. They guarantee their work, so if something doesn't look right, they'll make it right. I've never had to take them up on this perk, but I'm glad I have it. Having been to a number of different framing shops in the area, with groupons or living social deals, I have never found a better shop. If you value your art, this is the place to come to make your art, art.
Response: Raphael, thanks so much for the supportive feedback! We're thrilled to hear that you trust us with all of your framing jobs. And you have given us the best compliment by bringing your friends in. We are honored to be given that kind of trust. We look forward to gaining the respect of those you recommend. -Allen Custom Frame Team

Anirban Ghosh: Upon the recommendation of a friend, I checked out Allen Custom Frame for a very important piece - a wedding gift for my bride! From the start, I could tell that I was in good hands. The gift had to be made in a week and we definitely had some work to do to make the piece pop - including a carve out of two pieces from their original frames and dropping them into a new gorgeous frame that brought it all together. Their work enhanced the originals I provided handily and, more importantly to both me and my wife, helped tell a story that mattered to both of us. Thank you and looking forward to getting our best piece framed with the team!
Response: Anirban, thank you for the kind words. I must admit it was easy to feel inspired by your artwork. The sentiment was brilliant and beautiful. Can't wait to see what you think up next! :-)

Matthew Pfaff: Five stars on Yelp. Five more stars on Google. This isn’t an accident. If you have a piece or art or a cherished possession, you would be hard pressed to find anyone better equipped to treat the item with care than Harry and his team. For me, it was a 60-inch lithograph. I turned it over to Harry and watched him pull frames from a dizzying number of options. A couple weeks later, he delivered and hung the result in my home. There are any number of superlatives that I could use to describe his skill, but the reaction of a friend perhaps says it best: “the framing is more beautiful than the art.”
Response: That is such a nice review. Thank you so much Matthew. Hope to see you again.

Liz Richardson: I'm just wild about Harry...the owner, and the rest if the crew at Allen Custom Frame. The work they do is impeccable and they could not be nicer! Please go visit and give them my best!Liz Richardson
Response: Liz, thanks for the shoutout! We'll make sure to pass it along to Harry. Let us know next time you need anything! -Allen Custom Frame Team

Virginia Bramante: Very professional with a modern eye for the perfect frame.
Response: Virginia, than you for your kind words. As always it's a pleasure working with you. Looking forward to completing your print and poster of the print!

Emily Grossi: This place is such a DC treasure. Great frame selection, excellent quality, reasonable prices, terrific staff. I'm a regular!

Mohini Malhotra: Knowledgeable, friendly staff, and fairly priced
Response: Thanks so much for all the support, Mohini! Hope we'll see you around. -Allen Custom Frame Team

Marcelo Von Glehn: Quality work!
Response: We're glad you stopped in, Marcelo! We'd love to see you back soon. -Allen Custom Frame Team

A&A Art & Frame: what do users think?


Travis Painter: I was absolutely blown away by their work. I was referred here by a friend and now, I don’t think I could ever go anywhere else. I went in a bit lost and unsure of what I wanted, but Ari went above and beyond…was patient with me, and explained every option offering his expertise. Thank you so much, and I will be seeing you soon!

Vanessa J Panaligan: Top notch quality and service! Have been going here for years to get my paintings framed. Superb customer service—friendly, efficient, and very knowledgeable of the craft. Pretty good selection of frames at reasonable prices with quite a fast turnaround.

Stacy Leopold: I highly recommend A and A. I brought in a special print to custom frame for my daughter and they did a fantastic job for a fantastic price. The owner was so helpful and nice. He did such a great job that I asked about another piece I had and he quickly came up with a great readymade frame and a custom mat, also for a great price. He knew I was leaving town the next day and he offered to try to get the framing done the same day. 2 hours later he called me and both frames were complete and both looked great. He even gave me some hooks to hang up the artwork. I felt very lucky to have found this place. Could not have been a better experience!

Margot Igland Skarpeteig: Great selection of frames and pieces of art, decent prices and fantastic and professional service! Thank you for beautiful work.

Mark Ranslem: A&A Art Framing is the best single place I've ever been for custom framing. They've done about 40 jobs for me in two years. The work is consistently high quality and reasonably priced. Plus, they offer expert creative design services. Their turn-around time is always reliable as well. I refer all my friends to them. Parking can be tough in DC, but I can usually find a spot on M St between 18th and 19th quite a bit of the time. I highly recommend them.

Mark Pietrzykoski: 1145 19th st nw.Very established fixture of the retail shops downtown DC.

Derek Summerville: Very convenient, friendly, and always high quality. Framing can be expensive so nice when it comes out exactly as you hoped.

Kevin Li: Very nice people, but my custom mat there and then

Joseph Tordella: Excellent customer service and quick work. Dropped off a custom size picture to mat and frame, and he had it done later that afternoon as perfect as I had envisioned. They do their work in house, which gives them this flexibility.

Robin Duddy-Tenbrunsel: A & A did an excellent job cutting a new mat for and re-framing a large pastel that I bought. They completed the job extremely quickly and at a much lower price than I was anticipating. I definitely recommend them!

Art and Framing Pro: what do users think?


Royston Gilgeous: I had a retirement shadow box (Police badges) done. When I met John, he took time to review my request and explained what he can and couldn’t do. He reached out to a company he knows for some detailed engraving. He stayed in touch with me during the entire process. The finished product was spectacular. I highly recommend this business. Custom framing, detailed work, and great customer service. Thanks John for a job well done.

Edward Grandi: The owners took time with us to explore frame and mat options. The finished product was beautiful and I am pleased display it.

Jeremy Albrecht: Wow. What an experience. I expected more but all the reviews were years old. I got a Groupon for this establishment, and was supposed to get a 150$ credit towards framing. The piece was small, only 11” x 24”, and the most basic black metal frame cost 150$. And if I wanted it matted? Another 150! Just to cut a mat! I left a negative review on Groupon based on the pricing, and the proprietor called back multiple times to tell us that he would not frame our work, and to come pick it up. My girlfriend was apprehensive to go, so I went in her place to pick up the artwork. He refunded our money and then proceeded to tell me that leaving a negative review is illegal. He said that we live in a “white supremacist country and you [I] am only able to leave a bad review because you [I] am white and rich.” Then he went on to say that I only gave a bad review because he was not white. I had never seen or talked to him before this point. While I attempted to explain the review was based on predatory pricing to get around the Groupon deal. There were several extravagantly framed pieces of art I. The store much larger than mine for less than the total of just our framing job. I complained about a 150$ mat!!!! I do not know where the racial topic came up from.

Angel Cortez: I can’t believe this place! I DO NOT RECOMMEND! I took a small piece of artwork there that somebody gave me along with the Groupon for the place to get it framed. I wanted the absolute most basic frame which was way more expensive than I thought it should’ve been. I told them I wanted to stay under the $150 amount and it seemed to irritate the guy. He wouldn’t give me any suggestions and only check prices. It’s like he didn’t even try to help me. After some price checks I settled on an ugly basic frame and cheap glass, totaling about $160. I wanted a matt, but that woulda put my total to about $360. So no go on that. I just wanted my picture protected better than it was which was a piece of plastic wrapped around and taped to it self. Picture size: 24 x 10 The coupon buyer left a review about the price and the next day this place calls and leaves a 2:24 second voice mail saying they’re not gonna work on my art and to come pick it up, along with many other unnecessary comments and opinions . Couple days later they left another extra long voicemail. When I send someone to go pick it up. They return it without a protective cover for some reason. If they weren’t gonna work on it. They could’ve at least put my piece back together before giving it back. Now it’s even less protected than it was before. If any water droplets would’ve gotten on and it would’ve been ruined. The guy was very rude. Wouldn’t just understand that I wanted something small and basic and was covered by the Groupon. Not to mention the person I sent to pick it up got Told off by the same guy.

Anne Knapke: I rarely want to spend the money to get things professionally framed, but sometimes the piece just calls for it. John's store is located near my office, so I went in to check it out one day and I'm so happy I did. Exceptional service, very high quality work and competitive pricing. He is also just a pleasure to work with. I was so pleased and so happy I could support a local small business. I would encourage anyone to do the same.

Matthew Radomski: Fantastic Service. Great Price. Done within hours. I had a tough request - I needed a frame and mat done for an All Star Game Ticket and 8x10 photo, and I needed it done in 24 hours. I went to 3 or 4 stores around Dupont/Downtown and only one other place said they could help me, it would be 20 hours minimum, and it would be $280. Art and Framing Pro did the frame and mat in 2 hours for $70. I rarely write reviews, or Yelp a place, but I needed to for this type of service and quality.

Jen Dickman: John at Art and Framing Pro did a great job on my framing order. He took the time to go through a lot of different options and turned around the order very quickly, while still maintaining the quality of the finished product. He had it done a full day before I needed it ready. It looks great. I will definitely return for any future framing needs!

Victor Brown: John has famed several pieces for me over the last two years; great job every time, competitive pricing, and excellent service. Thank you John. I'll be coming in this week with a new piece for you to frame.

Tony: Really great service, the owner is very friendly and accommodating.

Leah Shea: Highly recommend this place. Excellent quality work for competitive prices. He will walk you through the options and make sure you get exactly what you want. Will definitely be coming back!

The Frame Shop: what do users think?


Armen Can: Im from Florida and I visited my aunt in DC and we discovered the The Frame Shop what a great discovery. My aunt is a local artist in DC and she always needs custom framing. Great service /Great quality. They are very professional and experienced they helped us choose the perfect matting and framing for her watercolor paintings. Joe also recommended museum glass WOW what a difference the glass made it’s incredible. I highly recommend this place.

Fred Hakim: I’m an artist and I’m always looking for a good frame shop. Found this one by chance walking by. What a great find! The owner is very knowledgeable and helped me pick matting and a great frame. Made my art pop. Great frame shop. Very reasonable prices and quick turn around. I found my frame shop. Highly recommend this frame shop!

Abdullah Yassawy: I'm so happy to finally have a frame shop around the corner from my work. I met with Joe today and he really helped me out to design a layout for a going away signing for my boss. It was a great experience I had with The Frame shop and glad they opened close by! I've used another shop in the past but they closed down. So i am happy to have found another place I felt comfortable with and great quality of work! Can't wait to go back and pick up the art!

Qais Sattar: Stopped in here yesterday since the other framing store near me was closed for memorial weekend. I was helped by a gentlemen named Joe; real upbeat guy. I came in to get an estimate on framing our wedding photo and invitation as sort of a collage. I tried Michael’s before coming here and it was nearly impossible to find someone in their framing department who could help. Anyhow, Joe shared some ideas while ensuring they aligned with my desired outcome. We picked the perfect matte/frame and it was all priced pretty well. I wasn’t expecting Michael’s pricing when I walked in, since this was a professional shop and they had some beautiful pieces on display. Giving a 5 star rating based on my experience and hope the final product is equally as good!

Elena Dieci: I could not recommend The Frame Shop highly enough! I was helped by a nice man named Kal who was incredibly patient in allowing me to look over all possible mattes and frames and who outlined various options at all price-points. He encouraged collaboration and routinely checked in to make sure I felt satisfied. I could tell that the customer was his priority. I went in intending to frame only two or three pieces, but ended up framing FOUR. I was in the shop for an hour and never felt rushed -- the process was incredibly thorough. I had previously framed another piece with them and the work is BEAUTIFUL. I felt obligated to write a review this time around! Photo attached is the previous framing job. They floated a scarf beautifully, and tastefully helped me to select the blue and gold surrounding it. THANK YOU, The Frame Shop!

Marisa Kronenberg: The personal service you can only get from a small local business with reasonable pricing and most importantly, very high quality framing. They were very accommodating and went above and beyond for my Father's Day gift. This is an awesome local business you can feel good about supporting!

Emily LeBlanc: First time customer, great experience. Calvin recommended a great frame for a painting that I brought in. Thanks!

Georgetown Frame Shoppe: what do users think?


Sean Ringeling: I would definitely recommend Georgetown Frame Shoppe! In my search for a particular print I got in contact with Peter from the gallery. He was friendly and really helpful. Peter and his team found the print I was looking for and framed it for me. They took good care of my art piece and responded very quickly whenever I had any questions.

William Chang: I have purchased multiple prints from the georgetown frame shoppe. Peter, Jon, Kristina, Andrew, and the rest of the crew are stellar at what they do.

Tom Reynolds: I’ve had several interactions with Peter and his team over the years – both buying and selling/consigning. They are always extremely responsive, professional, and fair. They take exceptional care in packaging and shipping the artwork. What more could you ask for? Their collection of animation art is impressive and continues to grow. I would highly recommend them and hope to someday visit the gallery.

Charlie chancey: Andrew of the frame shop cant even make a decision on how to take care of a simple shipping problem i would not trust this shop

Daniel Vander Ley: Fast FedEx delivery. Pristine lithographs, framing and smudge free glass. They clearly treat their work with care and detail. Thank you Jon and GFS team!

warhol200: I have dealt with Peter at Georgetown frame for years. He is honest and knowledgeable. He is always considerate and will advise you correctly. Great place to pick up quality investment art, especially Andy Warhol screenprints. His prices are very fair.

Alec Sprouffske: Art installer failed to follow directions from designer/ elevations given. Some of the art was installed in the wrong location and the only way I was told Georgetown would fix it was to charge another install fee. I tried working out a deal through email and the fellow I was emailing with stopped responding all together. The other pieces that were part of this job were installed in the proper location per the elevation given. Thank you.
Response: Just seeing this review now. I read through the string of emails and discussed with the installer who is still working here. Tahmina showed Andrew where everything was to be installed and signed off on it. Unfortunately it was a 2 hour drive back to Manassas, VA and we could not agree to the extra charge to return to the site. If we make a mistake we own up to . We will always return at no extra charge. That is why we have been in business since 1989.

Dan Trachtman: I needed some magazine covers framed. They were easy to work with, fair in pricing, and good at keeping in touch to let me know when things would be ready. Very smooth process, very professional operation.

Nolan Orgel: I used to take prints, lithos and other framable artwork here on a regular basis back in the 80s and 90s. Always returned home with great new piece for the wall.

David Green: Great art and print gallery. Great framing.

Washington Framers' Workroom: what do users think?


Jenise Hight: I have had several artifacts from various destinations framed at Framer's Workroom. They have a great selection of frames, mats and fabrics and provide great customer support with design suggestions to create the best presentation. I have been very please, will continue to do business with them, and recommend to others.
Response: Thank you very much for your kind words as well as the photographs of your framed pieces that you published on Google. It is very gratifying to help bring about a successful combination of artwork and frame. Thank you again. Gana Browning, Owner

Toni Codinas: I had a great experience with Framer's Workroom. They were very responsive over email recommending frames for my stretched canvasses and providing quotes. They then gave me an appointment to drop my pieces to adhere with social distancing recommendations and explained me in detail how they would frame the artwork. After 10 days my pieces were ready to pick-up. The workmanship is of good quality and the frames they recommended really enhance the art work. I look forward to bringing more pieces to this store and maybe next time trying to assemble the frames myself!
Response: Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with you.

Larry Goldman: Are used to be a huge fan of this place and literally have spent many thousands of dollars using their services. I’ve always been happy with the customer service and the quality of the work. Put in my last two encounters, I have found them to be less than customer oriented, almost expecting me to be appreciative that they are taking the time to work with me. Something has changed. I don’t know if it’s a management shift or what, but there are just too many other framing establishments in the area to have to put up with their attitude. I’m disappointed, but I’m hoping that they again will value loyal customers like me.
Response: Dear Mr. Goldman: I am so sorry that you were disappointed with us in your last interaction. You have been a good customer for more than 10 years, and we do value your business and your loyalty. We are doing our best to maintain our high level of customer service in a time made difficult by the Covid-19 virus. Under Phase 2 in DC, we are allowed to have only two customers in the store at the same time, as well as a limited number of staff members. We just can't operate in the same way we always have. I can assure you that Framers' Workroom is and has been under the same management since 1981. We are dealing with a whole new set of unprecedented obstacles and trying to overcome them as best we can. I sincerely hope that you will give us another chance. Gana Browning, Owner

Matthew DePauw: I brought artwork there hoping to DIY the framing. Unfortunately, they are not doing DIY due to covid-19, instead, I was helped by delightful, knowledgeable, and patient Caroline. She was absolutely incredible putting together the perfect combinations of frames and matting to accent my art pieces. She was a joy to work with on this job and I hope to use her expertise on future projects.

Cynthia C Houseknecht: So glad I found this framing store! They have good frame molding choices in stock and are happy to special order what they don't have. I literally walked in with my art and walked out with a beautiful completed piece in under two hours. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way!

Steve: I stopped by with two small projects because I at the pool at Wilson. I would normally go to frame-of-mine on capital hill. The woman running the place was hostile and I think she screwed up the project she agreed to do. She refused one framing project. Another framer agreed to to di. She rushed through a second project. She used card board with my etching which, according to another framer, would damage my art because it was not acid-free. The board also did not fit into the frame, but she forced it. I had to have it redone with the correct material (acid free board) and a board that fit into the frame. The price was reasonable, $5, but it was a waste of money and the time required to redo.

Liz Wagstrom: This is one of my favorite places! Great employees that will provide expert advice on frames, mats, glass and mounting artwork. Then you have the fun of finishing the project, with them helping, and it all costs WAY LESS than other framers. Would highly recommend!

Gordon Dean: I've framed several pictures there myself over the last 15 years. I've always had a good experience with friendly knowledgable help and a well outfitted workroom. One caveat is that I did work in a frame shop about 20 years ago so I have some experience framing. From the conversations I overheard between staff and inexperienced DIY customers it seems the staff were as friendly and helpful to them as they were with me.

Adam Shamieh: The concept is great! If you want to make a one of a kind frame done right, then this is the place to go to. You pick your frame, matting, type of backing (acid free or note), glass or plastic (the good kind of plexi), and they'll put all of the dimensions in the computer for the perfect cut. The frame material starts at $4.50/ft. I ended up framing my diploma with a standard size frame for $75. I had a large piece of art (aprx 18x23) custom framed without matting for just over $100. I brought two cheapo 20x20 frames in and kept everything, but I needed matting bringing those to maybe $20ish each. Really great when the standard size frames don't work or you want a custom job. Definitely go for the DIY option - it's cheaper and much more satisfying! They get your measurements, how you want your matting to fit, and walk you though the process. You'll get everything you need to preserve your piece and hang it on the wall. One gripe I have is that the employee that assisted me accidentally stained my large print and my diploma (gasp). When this happened, she washed her hands and did the best she could to get the stains out. We matted over one on my diploma and she was very helpful in amending the situation. The manager even took $30 off each damaged piece and upgraded my backing material. I recommend this place, but be very clean and careful during the process!

Marie Duellman: I can't say enough about this place. Everyone who works there are super professional and so helpful and patient. They take time to work you through your decisions and if you choose to frame it yourself (I highly recommend this!), they walk you through it and are there to assist through the whole process. What a gem this is in our neighborhood. No more big box framing for me.......

Ian Realo: I brought in an old family portrait for Stuart to frame and he really did it justice! I'm so happy with how well he treated the piece and how nicely it was all put together. I highly recommend this shop for any framing you have. Andy is great too, he always helps me get things from my car when they're too big. Ian
Response: Ian, it was an honor to help you get that old family portrait framed up nicely! Glad to hear you're pleased with our work. Thank you very much for all your kind words. We'll be here for any future framing needs you have. -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Central Photo Company: Capitol Hill Frame & Photo is a trusted partner for our company and we know that all orders are received and turned around with care and efficiency. From framing historic documents and photographs to large print orders, Stuart and is staff have always given us candid and fair pricing and advice with a knowledge base and expertise to back it up. We have worked with Stuart and his staff for over 20 years and it is my pleasure to give 5 stars to his business which I know counts for something in this review based economy. It is a testament to Stuart's customer service that he has been on the Hill for 20 plus years and in a small community his reputation has ensured his success.
Response: Central Photo Company, it is truly our pleasure to provide our supportive community with our framing and printing services. We're so glad to have assisted your company many times over the past 20 years. Thanks so much for the support -- we'll be here for whatever else you need! -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Maggie Boys: Capitol Hill Frame and Photo did an excellent job for me. I needed 20" x 30" signs printed and mounted on foam core and I had a very tight turn around time. They worked really well with my designer and everything turned out perfectly for my event.
Response: Maggie, thank you for trusting our dedicated team to get the job completed in time for your event. We're happy to hear that everything turned out perfectly. Hoping to lend a hand in the future. -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Alex Johnson: Unfortunately, I had a encounter where I was deeply disrespected by one of the gentlemen working here. I stopped in to pick up a custom framed gift and was treated as if I didn’t exist. I immediately approached the register to pick up the item and waited for the employees to return to the register. After returning to the register, the employee called for a customer from another area of the store who was behind me to process his transaction first and asked me to step out of the way. I don’t know if it was the fact that I was dressed casually in a raincoat and sweatpants for the bad weather or if it was a matter of his perception of my racial identity, either way, someone waiting at the register should have been helped before someone approaching the line from behind me. I give the other employee from the back of the store credit for recognizing my dismay at the treatment and asking if I was okay. This was, however, not enough to allay the micro-aggression I had experienced. I highly discourage friends and colleagues in Congress and beyond from using the services of this store. If you believe in justice, equity, and fairness, I implore you to find an alternative.
Response: Alex, thank you for taking a moment to provide us this feedback of your recent experience. I have been in business on the Hill for over twenty years and we take pride in serving all of our customers fairly. I apologize for this misunderstanding that occurred and do not want to discredit your feelings by any means. Our goal is to be welcoming to all of our customers and I can assure you this was simply a matter of miscommunication. I am sincerely sorry that you had a negative experience with us, and hope to gain the opportunity to provide our custom framing services for you in the future. Sincerely, Stuart Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Garrett Arwa: Came here to get a backlog of items framed. There was no wait time, and a few of the items I brought fit into ready-made frames which the they assembled for me on site. This option is recommended as it’s about half as cheap to do a pre-made frame as it is to do a custom with the cheapest frame/glass. But the ready-made frames come with a solid gram and glass, not cheap plastic. The custom jobs are not cheap, but probably about the same price as using Framebridge. Also used the wait time to get a passport photo.
Response: Garrett, finding the right framing options for your items is what we love to do! You're absolutely right that our ready-made frames are a cheaper option, so we're glad we could help you find the right ones to display your pieces. Thanks so much for the kind words about your visit here. If you need help with anything else, just let us know! -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Sam Rosenbaum: Such a great experience getting an original art piece framed here. I reached out to ~15 local vendors for pricing and got the best deal here for a very large piece. Stuart was super friendly and helpful, and the turnaround time was much quicker than I expected. So pleased with the end result!
Response: A beautiful piece of art needs a great frame to match it, Sam! We're excited we had just what you were looking for. It was a pleasure working with you. Anytime you need us, don't hesitate to get in touch. -Stuart

Ber.adette Pilliod: these guys are amazing. there is nothing they cannot do!!! the card selection is fantastic, always thoughtful or funny from sympathy to birthday. but the framing and photos have no peer. excellent suggestions on displaying favorite photos. also, many of my relatives are seniors to whom i send hard copy photos, this shop is very accommodating to everyone's needs. they helped me assemble a high school graduation collage also. i value their input, enjoy their rapport, and they will always be my first resource, hooray to them.
Response: Like we said on Yelp, Bonnie, no matter the project, you can count on our team to deliver exactly what you need! We're glad to know our photo printing services especially have been helpful when you need to send some pictures to your loved ones. Thanks so much for the support -- we'll be here for whatever else you need! -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Wendy W: This is by far and excellent place to get high quality photo prints. There’s also a large selection of reasonably priced cards and printing supplies.
Response: Wendy, thanks for your wonderful review! We're delighted to hear you're happy with your prints. If there's ever anything else we can do for you in the future, we'll be here for you. -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

bryan coxwell: I took a 50 year old newspaper here to get the front page framed. The paper was brittle and looked like it could have fallen apart under the slightest provocation, but they did an excellent job preserving it and the finished product looks great. Will definitely be going back next time I need something framed.
Response: Bryan, happy we could preserve and frame a snapshot from the past! We're so thrilled you're pleased with the outcome. Looking forward to helping you again in the future. -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Holly Robertson: Waited 8 years to get my graduate school diploma framed. Worth the wait!!
Response: The years of hard work you put in deserve the recognition, Holly! Glad we could help you select the perfect frame for your diploma. Don't hesitate to reach out if we can do anything else for you. -Capitol Hill Frame and Photo

Artful Framing & Gallery: what do users think?


Robert Miller: Art Framing is the absolute best! So professional and friendly! Gorgeous frames of all types. You want a real artist to help you choose the perfect frame, right? That's who you get at Art Framing! A real artist who will make your precious pictures that much more beautiful with a wonderful, tasteful frame!

Isaiah Waters: Amazing experience! My wife and I both have pictures that have been in the family for a very long time. Dilip took great care of them and made them beautiful again. We're very happy and highly recommend this establishment.

Andrew Baker: This is a wonderful business and my go-to for all framing. Staff are incredibly knowledgeable, products invariably high quality, lots of options for all kind of frames, matting and glass. They're particularly amazing at gently reframing, rematting and protecting older works that may still have acidic matting. I couldn't recommend this place more!

Lucas K: I'm so happy with my experience at Artful Framing & Gallery and would like to share it. I had never gotten anything framed before and wanted to get some vintage uncut sheets of cards framed. They are quite fragile and I didn't want anything to happen to them. I went to two frame shops before Artful Framing. The first seemed ok but didn't blow me away and the second I would never entrust something important with. I was really hoping that Artful Framing would work out. I was immediately impressed when I went in. The owner is an artist, very professional, and friendly. He had several framed pieces waiting to go out and they looked incredibly sharp. I explained that I hadn't gotten anything framed before and he walked me through the options. There was no pressure at all and the price he quoted was outstanding. I upgraded the glass pane for my favorite one of the three to museum glass-- and I love the way it turned out. It is the middle one in the picture with three sheets, and is also featured with its own close-up picture. It's truly like the glass isn't there at all. Incredible framing job and price for large, over-sized, old and fragile items. I am glad I will not have to think about where to go next time I need something framed. I'll just head here. Thank you for the great experience!

aj campbell: Make sure you call ahead for an appointment. The framing on my serigraph was top notch. This is top quality work by someone who really cares about the end product.

kimberlee keller: I love Artful Framing! Have beem going there for framing for years. Always do a great job. And the art at the store is wonderful to see.

Melanie Roberts: I experienced exceptional professionalism; I have an amazing piece reframed with impeccable quality.

Josarie Molina: I would definetly recommend Artful Framing. Dilip is professional, timely, and gives great recomendations to make artwork look its best.

Badiya Sudah: I've used the Artful Framing over the last 12 years. I've been very satisfied with the work. The prices are fair. The staff is courteous and helpful. I would like to see the owner in the store more often and I would like to see specials, a discount program or savings certificates to use for the future services. A social event of satisfied customers will make us a family.

David Saulter: The owner took time explaining the options and alternatives, differences between types of glass, cost etc. He never tried to up sell us and actually steered us towards a more economical approach a couple of times. The work was skillfully done and would go back again should we need additional services. P.S. - the owner is an artist in his own right. His own works are displayed through the space and is alone, reason enough for a visit to his store.

Art & Framing LLC: what do users think?


Greg Schneider: Great experience and advice with rebuilding frame and stretchers and remounting canvas for large, 95”x75”, painting. From beginning to hanging, superb craftsmanship and work!

Eddies: He does good work. I brought in a special letter for custom framing. He showed me some options and quoted me a price. I admit I initially felt the price was steep given the size of the very small letter (less than letter size), but I went with it. He did an excellent job, and he brushed out some small ink smudges that appeared on the letter. Probably could have done slightly better on price at a place like Michael's but would not have received the same quality and level of service. You get what you pay for.

Donya Mann: I love this shop. I’ve been using Mo for a few years now for some original works and some prints. After so many conversations he knew my love for classic American pin up girl art. When he stumbled across some original Vargas Girl prints, he called me to let me know. I was so impressed by the thoughtfulness to ask me if I was interested. I was! And I asked him to frame them as well. He gave me a great deal and I am so thrilled with the result.

David M: Mr. Mo is a true artist and designer. If you leave him a project he is able to make the best out of it. He is an honest man with dignity and professionalism. His core values are amazing, a good man with good work ethics. Great designer with amazing ideas. I highly recommend Art and Framing Pro and Mr. Mo as an excellent place with amazing outstanding customer service and hospitality.

Sebastian Orillac: Expedient and kind to a first time artwork owner. Helped me choose a frame and explained his steps in the process. Very helpful

Elizabeth Antiskay: I recently bought a large 36' x 72' painting from Italy that needed to be stretched and framed. After calling around the local Dupont/Admo area, I found that this store not only did the work in 1 week- versus 2 or 3, they were HALF the quoted price of others, and they were always polite and courteous from the initial phone call to the final pick-up. The owner Mo is a very nice neighbor to have in Dupont and I will certainly be bringing my other two paintings to him.

Phillip T.: Frank owner that can sometimes be a bit rough around the edges, but is comical and means well. In any case, he *perfectly*—not an exaggeration— framed two large posters/art pieces I had. Will definitely come back for custom framing.

Filip Vojvodic Medic: The owner is pretentious and dismissive. He treats customers like they do not know anything about aesthetics nor framing. He seemingly gets upset if you decline his first solution and then creates a tense atmosphere in which it is very difficult to explore alternatives. He might be praying on people's insecurities - his choices are decent, but not amazing - and he is definitely someone you do not want to end up giving your money to. I am shocked that this guy was ever recommended to me as someone I must see. If you are a masochist or would like to see what kind of customer service you could have run into before the advent of social media, then the experience is worth it and you should definitely engage.

Ida Yousofi: Great quality for a great price! The owner Mo has a huge selection and gets the frames ready very quickly! I definintly recommend, especially for nicer photos, such as graduations, weddings, and/or family portraits.

Olivia Boyce: Mo is great at what he does. He has an eye for helping you to select the perfect frame and matte and completes his work with care and speed. He's also a kind and friendly neighbor to those in Dupont!

Framesmith DC: what do users think?


Paul Wierenga: Best framing experience we've had in DC. Paula was super friendly, did an excellent job, and has a wide selection of frame and matting options. Couldn't be happier.
Response: Thank you!

Katie Burk: Paula is the absolute best. I've been going to her for years now. She has a wonderful eye, and works with you to find the best frame and matte combo for your art. I highly recommend going to Framesmith!

Walter Tersch - PCAE: Highest recommendation for this longtime, local DC business. Great quality workmanship, and great service. Our painting was perfectly stretched and framed. When I, through no fault of Paula's, damaged the frame shortly after picking it up (freak accident), she graciously repaired the frame good as new, for free. A+

Joan Kloepfer: Paula is so very talented! I love working with her!

Erica W: Paula rocks. She has excellent taste and gives great guidance. High quality framing services.

Graeme King: Paula is terrific. A real pro and a great person.

David Greene: Great small neighborhood frame shop. Funky selection and wonderful staff.

john giblin: Always use Framesmith- great

Nevin Forbes: High quality work

Kelly Hlubek: Michele is outstanding! Very helpful and very patient. She wants you to be 100% satisfied with her work and will take the necessary steps to ensure that you love your frames. She framed 4 pieces of art work for me and repaired another piece as well. Highly recommend.

Jenna Behringer: I have had dozens of pieces framed here over the years. I've also found some really beautiful pieces in the gallery that I know have in my home. The owner is knowledgeable, experienced, and willing to sit down with you and really take the time to make sure you're finding the best frame in your price range. I wouldn't go anywhere else in DC for framing!

DDS Powers: Owner is extremely friendly, and knows her craft.

Preservation and Framing Services: what do users think?


Molly Mastrangelo: I have been using this framing service for several years, and have always been satisfied with the results. Matin is so good at choosing just the right frame and mat for each picture, and the work is always finished expertly and promptly. Framing is expensive, but I think Preservation gives good value for the cost.

graciebuster: Recently I had some treasured photographs and paintings framed at this amazing place. The work is superb . Matin, the owner, helped me choose the perfect matting colors and the frames are so unique . I am thrilled by the results and felt I should let everyone know that this business is superb. I would never trust anyone else.

Thérèse-Marie Harkey: My husband and I previously took a large art work to Preservation and Framing Services for repair Based on the attention and expert care that our art work received, we vowed we'd never go anywhere else for our framing or preservation needs. Later, I had an abstract painting that needed "something special". Luckily I knew my idea to float the painting on plexiglass could become a reality because I had THE BEST experts at Preservation and Framing to execute my idea. Just picked it up today and my husband and I are over the moon happy with how perfect and beautiful it turned out - exactly what was in my mind when I left it in their competent hands. Matin is super awesome - fair, honest, kind and talented. There simply can't be a better place to take your valuable art work, photographs, prints etc. Thank you Preservation and Restoration for making my dream a reality!
Response: Therese, Thank you so much for your review! It was so much fun working on your project together. Thank you for sharing the amazing photos you took after they were up in your home. See you soon! Matin

Terry Phillips: I have been a customer of Preservation and Framing Services for many years and my house if full of their excellent work. I travel quite a bit and love to bring home all sorts of artwork and ornaments. Preservation and Framing services is always to place my wife and I turn to for preserving and displaying our treasures. The staff is extremely helpful and always ready to help with framing and display suggestions. Over the years, we must have had 30 pieces framed and correctly displayed by The DC location. I always recommend their excellent and creative services to all my friends and colleagues.
Response: Thank you so much, Terry! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review!

Melissa Barron: Highly recommend Preservation and Framing Services to anyone in need of custom framing or art restoration. The service is phenomenal, they even offer in home art consultations and delivery!
Response: Thank you Melissa for your review! Its always great seeing you!

Joe Ruth: We have had our framing done here for almost twenty years. Matin has an astonishing eye for color and texture. We have found that nine times in ten we agree with her first or second suggestion even if we initially insisted on trying some of our own ideas. Matin is a joy to work with. She is the best framer we have ever worked with, and we are in our 70s. Abbas is a superb restorer. Earlier this year we took him a more than century old oil painting which was finished years ago with a varnish that turned white paint into brownish yellow. The painting has great sentimental value, so we really wanted it done right. Abbas was able to remove the varnish and perform some delicate touch up painting. It now looks terrific. Thank you! We have always found their prices to be reasonable for the work they do. This is not your average framer/restorer. You are getting top quality attention and work.
Response: Hi Joe, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! It is always a pleasure working with you. Hope to see you soon! Matin

Scott Spencer: Everyone at Preservation Framing has been amazing, full of good suggestions for my customers art framing, and incredibly helpful with the restoration of an expensive family piece. I couldn’t recommend them any higher!! Their work is impeccable.
Response: Hi Scott, Thank you so much for your review! Its always a pleasure working with you.

Robin Weaver: Preservation and Framing is the only place to go if you want beautiful work of high quality done with your art, photos or heirlooms. Over many years, this is the only place I have used for preserving and framing important art and documents. The work is always completed in a timely fashion with skill and caring. If it is framing that I needed - then the choices were plentiful. I have had art work done in box frames and family photos framed in wood. If you have important information about the piece that you need to keep (dates of purchase, artist names, personal letters, etc) then sleeves are put on the back to protect and maintain the documents. You can count on the excellent workmanship, fair pricing and problem solving that you find at Preservation and Framing.
Response: Thank you for your business in the past. Matin

Rosemary Pye: Matin is absolutely fabulous! We had many family pictures and she framed 50 pictures for us for a picture wall. We have also had many other pictures framed by her as we redecorated our house. I highly recommend her. Her prices are very reasonable and her work is of the highest quality.
Response: Thank you for your business, it was my pleasurer working with you. Matin

Elizabeth DeOreo: I have been a client of Preservation and Framing for about 8 years. Matin does beautiful work. She has a fabulous eye and always suggests something creative. People routinely compliment the unique matting and framing in my home. I have given her work as gifts and my friends and family have been thrilled with the meticulous and creative work Matin does. Her shop is convenient to DC and Bethesda and I appreciate how easy it is to park/load/unload. I enthusiastically recommend Matin and Preservation and Framing Services.
Response: Hello Elizabeth! Thank you so much for your review! Its always a pleasure working with you! See you soon. Matin

International Art Gallery and Custom Framing: what do users think?


Dave: Truly exceptiponal work with better prices than the other framers in the area. Habib, the owner was extremely friendly, accomidating, and helpful. Loved working with him! He did a masterful job of guiding through the process. Could not have been better to work with. This is the framer you want to work with!
Response: Dave, thank you for the wonderful review.. It was a pleasure working with you. I wish you a Happy Holidays and the Best for the New Year

Austin F.: Best framing work in the DMV area. Habib went above and beyond to help me design custom framing. He was patient, provided numerous options and ideas, offered competitive pricing, and completed the items promptly. Exceptional service and the highest quality of craftsmanship. Thank you Habib and team!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Austin. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We truly appreciate your business. Looking forward serving again in the future.

Etu Dieng: I am an interior designer and decorator and I have been using Habib's services since 2007. Very neat gallery, great art selection, very kind employees with professional attitude, unique original art collection all in the hand of an expert with a great eye and unbeatable price range. I highly recommend this place
Response: Etu, thank you for the kind words. It's always a pleasure doing business with you. Be safe

Mir Niy: What an exceptional place to frame your artwork! I needed calligraphy art framed within two hours. Despite short notice, Habib and Lauren took their time to advise me what color and type of mat/frame to use and the frame turned into a fine artwork. Many thanks for professionalism. Highly recommended!
Response: We were happy to help! So glad you were pleased with our work. Thank you for your review.

Jeremy Haile: This is the best place for framing in Washington, DC. They provide all kinds of services for hanging art, photography, or other materials, and they have a great selection of works to choose from. Projects are completed promptly, and are consistently of the highest quality. And the price is always fair. Best of all, Habib and his staff are wonderful to work with. For art and custom framing, there's no better place in town.

Billy McMorris: Couldn't have been better. Quick, excellent service and amazing staff. I walked in with my own ideas of what my frame would look like; the staff had much better (and more tasteful) ideas. They obviously could have taken advantage of my ignorance and steered me to the most expensive frame in the store and instead did it at a lower cost than my initial budget.

Jason Wolf: I can't recommend these guys enough. Not only did they turn my frame around quickly, they were super reasonable in price. Feel free to price check them - they do awesome work. PS - They have some nice Chase paintings too.

shelley davis: This is my second visit to have Habib make my paintings more exquisite with an amazing framing job. His quality of craftsmanship, attention to detail & making sure your art work fits the frame is by far the best I have experienced. See you next week for pick up. Thx.
Response: Shelley, it has been pleasure working with you. We value your patronage and appreciate your confidence in us.

Michael Werner: Habib did a fantastic job helping me design and frame a set of pictures from our vacation. It looks beautiful in our home. He really provides personalized and top-notch service
Response: Hello Michael, thank you for the kind words. We are glad that you are happy with our services.

Dan B: Had a canvas stretched and it turned out fantastic. By far the best prices in DC and Habib did great work. I will definitely be back and cannot recommend this shop enough.

Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing: what do users think?


cq ny: With Plaza Artist Materials I found a strong competitor to Blick. A great selection of notebooks for sketching, drawing and watercolor that I used to only find on Amazon but now I can buy here in person. Stop by this store for sketching, drawing and painting supplies. They also have canvases and supplies for oil and acrylic art, knitting, and other art mediums that look interesting. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Prices seem reasonable.

david hawksford: These are the worst people to deal with. Very unfriendly It's like being in a mortuary having a deal with these people. At least they have some supplies.

Will Edwards: Has frames and some basic art supplies. Nothing super special

Jon Fisher: Fantastic store with a great selection of products and very helpful and friendly staff who helped us find everything and give us advice on which materials to purchase for an art class.

Shadawn Duncan: Since starting my venture into being an artist, I spend so much the in there they know my name. I can always ask questions and get guidance and tips because all of the staff have an artist's background. Makes it easy to shop.

Georgia Hronek: I don't know a lot about art but the staff helped me out in finding my supplies. It seems like they had an okay selection except the store overall was small. I think if you're looking for something specific you might want to check their website first to see if they have it. By the way the DC angel wings mural is on the side of their building just as an FYI. I was happy with my overall experience so I'll go back to get more art supplies for my drawing class from the store. I'm not an artist though so I can't speak to how good their prices are.

Laura P: The store was bright and clean, with helpful but not intrusive or hovering staff and a very good selection of watercolor paints, paper and brushes, and many more things that I did not peruse as carefully. I had a groupon, which was awesome, since I could easily have spent much more than I did. Definitely worth checking out!

Waldo Strange: Helpful staff, good assortment of products, clean and well organized. They have a loyalty program that is free to sign up for. Dinged a star, though, because their prices are a bit high in my opinion. Would like to see better deals at least on store brand things.

Poro Mitoto: I love this location. I first started going because of the Groupon coupons that I kept seeing pop up in my recommendations. The staff is super friendly and the guy who was working the cash register the past two times that I've been went out of his way both times for me. He even helped me sign up for their savings and gave me coupons. I wish I remembered his name.

Katie E: Fantastic selection at this art store and a wonderful staff eager to help you find what you need. Their ranges of materials and the brands they carry are extensive. This place became my new go-to after Pearl closed down. I've gone in for everything from fabric dye to pens/markers, pencil sets, pads, clay-work items, etc and not once have I walked out without exactly what I was looking for. If you're looking to cut down on costs, they also have an email list that's chock full of coupons.
