It's a little pricey, even for the frame business. I am writing this review before seeing my finished framed artwork because I am having it framed and tried to arrange it to be mailed. I am working out of the country. First of all, I bought an $800 painting that was 3 x 3 feet from an artist friend for $400 since he moved back out of the U.S. When I shopped for a frame, the modern wooden frame was to cost me $450 plus $35 labor. When I asked about mailing he said it would be mailed by a nearby UPS mailer and could cost up to $220. He said he would have to have a custom crate made to mail it. When I called to make arrangement and before I sent the mailing address, he came up with a price of $180 for the wooden crate. Now, I don't know about other places, but I'm guessing he hires some cheap latin laborer in the area for that crate. That was the last straw, but it was too late to cancel the frame, which he said was coming from New York, so I relented and had him frame it, despite the fact I should have just mailed it unframed to my final destination of New Mexico and had it framed there. You tell me: is it worth over 2 times the price of the artwork to have it framed and mailed? Buyers beware.unless you have an expensive enough piece to frame, the high prices they are asking are difficult to justify, regardless of how good a frame job they do.

I have used Frame of Mind for all of my framing for over 15 years and I think that Javier and his staff are great! Not only do they do a good job but they are creative and intuitive in their suggestions and advice.

I went into Frame of Mind about a week ago to get this really awesome Led Zepplin poster framed, my friend had recommended the place. He said the owner can be rude but the quality is pretty good. So I went, and this young girl stated helping me, and she didnt have any idea what she was doing. I said I wante top match the colors in the pic and she was like no do a white mat. so i asked if there was anyone else who could help me. She went and grabbed the owner, Javier. Right away he had an attitude because the girl couldn't help me. I explained I wanted simple but colorful. He told me I should only do a white mat with a black frame. WhenI tried to show him what I like he told me he wont do it, and said I probably cant afford what I picked. He insisted that his way was right and minewas wrong. Im the one that has to live with my piece not him, so I took my art and left. I found a really good framer, with better prices and attitudes one block north, in between 16th and 17th on alton rd. They were grea!!!! NOT FRAME OF MIND!!!!

I have had several pieces of art framed there and I have found the staff helpful, courteous, and very knowledgeable.The work was well crafted and everyone has complimented me on the frames.I have recommended family and friends to bring all of their framing to this establishment.

I went into this shop, and identified myself as a designer with a client in Bolivia. I explained that what I wished to purchase was lengths of moulding which the client would ship to her home. I worked for several days with a female member of the staff. At first she completely screwed up the order and misquoted the price. I went back to the shop, said that anyone could make a mistake, and worked with her to get the order right. I told her that I had already quoted the client, but that I thought that everything would turn out OK. When she finally called with the revised quote she told me that the owner had decided to change the discount that had been previously offered. He took no responsibility for the original error of his staff, nor did he offer any explanation for his reneging on his original discount rate. He is an untrustworthy, and unfriendly business owner. I will never go to his shop again, and I would caution anyone else from doing so.

I had a valuable painting Framed at this location.
There was an incredible amount of quality frames to choose from.
The craftsmanship and care taken was exceptional.
I would recommend Frame of Mind to all who care about how their art work is treated.

On a recent trip to Haiti, I bought a really nice painting and needed it framed. I went to Frame of Mind on alton road and was worried that they would not have a frame big enough for the picture. I was really impressed with the selection they had. Frames of every size and shape. The prices were affordable as well.

PROS: Very affordable...stop here first!
CONS:
