My family has had nothing but great experiences here. Most recently I went in at the end of the day on Friday with a very curled Albers print hoping to have it framed as a gift for my husband's birthday which was three days away. I knew the frame job wouldn't be completed in time but I did mention that it was for a gift. The lead time on the job was supposed to be two weeks. Not only did I receive excellent service but I was shocked and amazed when I got a call less than 24 hours later telling me the job was done! The crew at Framing Resource went above and beyond to work a miracle for me. In addition, I really feel like they "get" it in terms of knowing what will work aesthetically with whatever you are framing. They made great suggestions and together we picked out the perfect frame. I got amazingly quick service and an archival quality job...at a price that was reasonable. I couldn't be more pleased.

I had some art inherited from my family and they helped re-frame both pieces nicely. Steve has a natural eye for how to bring out the different aspects of a piece of art. They also take care of my art like it was their own piece. Also helped me clean up a piece that I wanted to sell and not put extra money into. I highly recommend them.

I have had 2 paintings framed by Framing Resource and have been very pleased both times. They are experienced, have a nice inventory and are easy to work with. They will even help hang the painting. Additionally, their pricing is very reasonable compared to other framers of their caliber. This company is great!

Pros: Used by several major art galleries in Portland

We have been collaborating with Framing Resource for quite a while. As a fellow professional we really appreciate their knowledgeable staff. Their quality standards are consistantly high. They are friendly and approachable. Their shop is always spotless which in turn makes us feel as though anything we leave with them will be well taken care of. We are happy to refer our clients to them.

Framing Resource is simply the best place to go in Portland when you need to frame any work of art! Choosing a frame that enhances a work of art without overwhelming it can be a challenge. Todd, Steve and Cindy are extremely helpful in assisting me to select the perfect frame and framing materials. Showcasing the work of art is always the priority, unlike some frame shops, which may promote expensive frames at the aesthetic expense of the art. I have used Framing Resource for many years and have never been disappointed. Recently, the framing on a very large picture I purchased from a private collection , required repair/replacement. Todd picked up of the picture, advised on archival issues to preserve and protect the art work and then delivered the piece to my home upon completion. This is simply one example of the superb level of service Framing Resource provides.

I don't remember when we started taking our business to Framing Resource. My wife and I have used them for decades. They have framed everything imaginable for us, from our children's grade school artwork to our grand-children's birth announcements, from inexpensive poster art and memorabilia to an incredible 18th century needlework sampler worth more than $10,000 (yes, we trust these guys!). They even supplied, framed, and helped to deliver and hang a 4' x 8' beveled mirror for our dining room. No job is too big (or too heavy) or too small for them. They are innovative and imaginative, jobs are completed on time and delivered as promised, their prices are more than fair, and, of great importance to us, they take pride in their workmanship, which is impeccable. When we need something framed, whatever it is, we know where to go. Once a person has worked with Framing Resource, why would they go anywhere else?!

Cons: On street parking

I inherited a family heirloom that needed to be framed to be preserved. I consulted with several frame shops in the PDX area but none seemed confidant or qualified to take on this project. It is very large and delicate and needed a complex shadowbox frame. My neighbor, who is an artist and shows at the Laura Russo Gallery, recommended I try Framing Resource. She has used them for over a decade and was sure they could help. Not only were they not intimidated by the project, they had some ingeniously creative ideas that far surpassed my expectations. For as large as this piece is I thought the price was a very good value and the quality of their work was perfect. The whole project took less than three weeks from design to completion. These guys and gals rock! This is my frame shop from here on out.

Pros: Huge selection, very helpful design staff and a bowl of chocolate on the counter.

My wife and I have had a number of items (from inexpensive computer-generated photos to valuable works of art) matted and/or framed by Framing Resource over the past two years. We've worked almost exclusively with Steve. He's tremendously helpful in choosing appropriate frames from FR's extensive selection. He also makes sure we don't overdo it. Prices are fair; estimates are always accurate. Work is done in a timely fashion. The overall customer experience simply couldn't be any better.

This store carries an incredible collection of framing material and has a wonderful staff that works to best display your artwork. They have frames in a wide price-range and their work quality is always excellent.

Depending on the artwork, I have purchased beautiful read-made frames displayed in their store windows or collaborated with them to create beautiful custom-framed projects.

I trust them completely, having worked with them for many years. I have been known to drop off a piece of art and ask them to best display the art. I have never left disappointed.

After driving by this shop in our neighborhood many times we recently took in a set of prints for custom mats and frames and what a find this place is! They did an excellent job of helping us choose a mat and frame combo that shows off the colors and beauty of our prints. We never would've been able to select this gorgeous combination of materials on our own and the workmanship is impeccable. Everyone we've dealt with there has been very friendly and helpful, and through their patience and the obvious interest they take in their work and their customers, they have taught us a lot about all the details that go into choosing well for each piece of art. We thought the price we paid was entirely reasonable for a very satisfactory outcome, and a high quality product. Our job was completed in a very timely manner, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were thrilled with the results. We've gone back again with a less complex job and were shown the same interest and care that we were for the first job. We'll be going back! We have found our framing "home" and have no reason to look at other shops or wonder where to go for future framing needs, with our treasured items as well as with more casual ones. And since they are just moments from our house we feel very lucky! We only wish we had gotten started with them sooner.

If you have artwork you want to have framed right, take it to these guys. They have framed many pieces for me over the last few years and I have been pleased with everything they have done. I like their design sensibility that favors the art over the frame. The quality of their work has been excellent. I enjoy the atmosphere of the shop and I am always treated like a friend not just a customer. A true gem. Highly recommend.

Overpriced to start. Paid $94 and they ended up cropping my picture and this was using the "discount" framing line. Went to Aaron Brothers got a larger poster custom framed for same price. Would have been better off buying a pre-sized frame at Fred Meyers and cropping it myself for $15. These guys may be decent for expensive pictures but don't go there for poster framing.

Also don't know what was up with 2 week wait for 10 minute job. Suppose they think the customer thinks its a betetr deal when they make you wait a week or two.
