This is a hand-carved shell from Tahiti. It is being gifted to the Asian Pacific Cultural Center during its weekend festival in Tacoma. Tahiti is the pacific island being featured during the event.
My mother actually came in to place this rush order. The designers made such a beautiful presentation, she wanted to keep the shell for herself. Amazing team made this happen in 5 days!
This piece is special because it was painted by an acquaintance then given to me by a best friend. I love geometric art. My designer at the Queen Anne Museum Quality Framing was helpful, pleasant, and personable.
This is such a stunning shot of our boat and knowing the artist who took the picture makes it all the more special. Having seen the welded industrial blue steel frame, I knew it was the perfect frame. But Kansas, our designer at the Magnolia Museum Quality Framing, thought to add the second frame around it, giving the photo much more depth. AWESOME! I’m so happy with this frame!
This piece is special because our granddaughter, age 8 made these to replicate us, her grandparents. Our designer was fun and professional. We wouldn’t go anywhere else.
My fiancé’s niece created the piece as a memorial to our cat who passed away. Rem Rem Adopted us when we moved into our new house. Turns out he was the neighbor’s cat and he just liked our house better!
There is only one thing that I want to say about the framing process at the Musem Quality Framing in South Lake Union. Emma = fantastic!
This item is special to me because of the relationship that exactly parallels the first and second movies, seeing them together, a decade apart from each other.
My designers at the Queen Ann Museum Quality Framing took a vision, enhanced it and then, in process, brought brilliant symmetry capturing the full spirit of the gift.
This piece represents the memory of a wonderful trip to Austria. Emma and Garrett, my designers, spent a lot of time helping me think through all the possibilities for this frame. They let me think big, then helped me scale back to something that was beautiful.
These are luggage tags from my Great Grandmother, who was quite the traveler. We framed these for her Great, Great Grandson’s nursery, which has a travel/ adventure theme.
"There is nothing that could better represent our once-in-a-lifetime experience at the Bolshoi ballet in Moscow. Autumn, our designer at the Laurelhurst Museum Quality Framing, captured the elegance and the peace of the newly-restored theatre with a subtle and distinctive style that will bring comment after comment and forever remind us of that grand and magical evening."
This item is special to me because it’s a collection of my Grandfather’s original World’s Fair memorabilia.
My designer at Wallingford Museum Quality Framing provided excellent service and advice.
These are two pieces from a book project we helped fund on Kickstarter that was a vampire themed art compilation. The art is interesting and unusual and we are really excited to have them!
The enthusiasm and knowledge that Kansas, our designer at the Magnolia Museum Quality Framing, had when he helped us, made us even more excited about the pieces themselves. Seeing them finished really shows how much more enhanced they’ve become.
These framed collages capture some of the moments and mementos from our pilgrimage across Spain.
We had no idea how to properly display these items and liked that we were given lots of options within our budget. Everyone was friendly and patient while we picked what we wanted.
This piece is special to me because I grew up with the collection. After some lapse re-establishing and bringing it all up to date is exciting.
Emma, my designer at the Downtown Museum Quality Framing, was quick to grasp the concept and patient as I acquired the few missing items to complete the set to date.
This piece is special to me because it’s the original painting we used to make posters for a play I wrote and directed. It makes the whole endeavor seem more real. The art and frame are both precious to me.
The barbed wire design was something that caught my eye on a previous visit. I love the care and attention you guys offer. So many options means something that doesn’t go with one piece is remembered for another. Thanks for everything.
This piece is special to me because I am a diehard modern roller derby fan. Especially Rat City Rollers. This is actually a gift for another fan and good friend.
I had made a fantastic trip to China and wanted to bring something original, yet unusual, to commemorate my time there. And so I found these meticulously hand painted leaves and knew they were perfect! These were particularly difficult to design with the colors and layout to highlight their delicacy but not to overwhelm them.
Luckily, Julia, my designer at the Magnolia Museum Quality Framing, was able to help me find the perfect match of components to do justice!
This is an original oil painting by Edward Kinsella, made for the May 17, 2010 issue of the New Yorker. The painting depicts me working with Stepanor dance notation in anticipation of a presentation at the Guggenheim Museum.
I’m always very happy with each item I have framed at MQF. Emma has had the perfect ideas for each unique piece I’ve brought in. Thank you!
This is important to me because it finalizes my status as an American citizen, it’s been an 18 year journey. Nothing says USA better than an American Flag. It’s extra meaningful because it was flown over the Capitol Building in DC.
The final product is fantastic, I came in not knowing how I wanted this framed, but the designer walked me through her ideas.
My mom LOVED collecting recipes, cooking and baking...this series of the "picnic" type recipes represents our family times of going out the forests in the fall to gather firewood in preparation of cold Wyoming winters. My mom passed away 12 years ago of cancer. I wanted something in my kitchen to bring back special memories.
Jessica – Thank you! I appreciate your patience and expertise. The frame we went with is a bit rustic and matches the ink on the recipes. Perfect!
This piece is special to me because it captures my 5 marathons and gives me a proud reflection of how far I’ve come.
I thought [Emma] did a great job taking in my opinion and what I wanted, but still added a great professional and classy flare. It was quite stunning to see finished.
My friend and I attended this show together and, as a birthday present to him (and me!), I got these framed. Emma, my designer, rocks!
Designer’s note: These 2 designs really showed the character of the individuals who framed them. One focused on the details and the other on the bold color. This is a reminder that there are so many possibilities and so many options to let personalities show through.×CLOSE
This piece was purchased in a special place & represents some core philosophies. Jessica, our designer, was awesome! She immediately came up with some great options and together we ended up with some truly unique pieces.

This picture is of my first teddy bear, which also happened to belong to my mother. I never passed the bear onto my daughter - so eventually she’ll have a memento - she also loves the bear (but I couldn’t part with it!)
The designers at the South Lake Union MQF worked with me to make pop art from my beloved bear photo. The experience was special, we had fun. Their ideas helped a lot. The process was an adventure. The result was great!
This item is special to me because it was a custom printed limited edition gift. I’m always satisfied with my experience at the Issaquah Museum Quality Framing and recommend their designers.
This is a really cool, limited edition woodcut by Lawrimore Project artist Cris Bruch, a re-imagining of WWII era “ration stamps.”
Emma figured out a way to really call out and feature, not just the work, but how it had been made. The framing lifts the piece by mounting it on plexiglass, letting the “perforations” in the work stand out.
This is the outfit my son wore home from the hospital after he was born. It was not weather appropriate for the season, so he never wore it again. We now have yet another great reminder of that special day.
I’ve had multiple projects framed at Museum Quality Framing and always receive great customer service. We had problems finding a mat, so Robert Glenn recommended using fabric. The polka dots look great, and are so appropriate for the baby outfit.
We pulled in the Ganges marina and there was a gallery near by. The artist just returned from India and was so excited. She was very impressed. I love the color. It gives the piece such life, culture, and femininity of the woman’s role.
Our Design Consultant, Autumn was wonderful. She was passionate and pulled the favorites right away... A true artist.
This piece uses elements from the only Sci Fi show I have ever liked and signed by my favorite cast. It includes the only actual used script autographed by Lou Diamond Phillips. With regards to my in-store experience, all I can say is Emma is AMAZING!
It was always our dream to go to a World Cup. 2010 saw the first World Cup being hosted on the African continent, and with the strongest U.S. team ever fielded, we figured it was time to make it happen. It was a dream come true to go to the World Cup and now we get to relive it every time we look at this amazing work.
We felt very well taken care of. The time spent helping us along with the suggestions were invaluable. This piece would not have turned out nearly as well if we went anywhere else. Thank you so much!
This was a gift from my wife. I thought she was a little crazy for buying such a nice item. I knew the frame would have to match the quality of the guitar to be displayed on my wall.
Stacia was extremely helpful and had an endless stream of ideas. I could not have asked for better service. I loved how it turned out.
