Happy Fall everyone! Just a little update on the happenings at here at your favorite frame shop. The next few months are going to be very exciting for us at Pacific Frame! Levi, our amazing employee, is getting married at the beginning of November and at the same time Noel and I are headed on our first vacation as a couple in just over 20 years. We tell you this to help you plan ahead for your framing needs for this holiday season. Our shop will be closed from November 3rd through November 13th. This means our turnaround time for projects will be moving to 2-3 weeks before and after this closure. Bringing your projects in early will allow you to beat the holiday rush and have peace of mind that your projects will be completed on time! Thank you so much for keeping us busy and allowing us to frame your keepsakes and memories! We hope to see you soon! Love, Leigh [...]

We have been known to frame some pretty unusual things over the past 20 years! If you haven’t thought about it, framing isn’t just for pictures. You can bring in all kinds of treasures and we will transform them into one-of-a-kind works of art for your walls. Just consider the items you may already have that could easily be turned into art – grandma’s favorite mittens, dad’s fishing items, that sand dollar you picked up at the beach or your first report card from school. It is fun to have those special keepsakes on display where you can see and enjoy them. See below for some framing ideas!
Sporting memorabilia is fun to have on display. Whether your favorite sports star is a professional or in little league, framing a jersey is a great way to remember a winning season or special game. There are various ways we can frame these types of items. Showing the entire jersey looks great, but if you don’t have the space for it, we can also fold it to show a smaller portion. Either way, it will look dynamic and add excitement to a space!
What can we frame? How about coffee bags with some snazzy artwork on them? These two coffee bags were framed in an 11″x14″ readymade frame. They were float mounted on a suede mat (in stock 11×14 mat) and the top mat was raised about a half an inch to raise the glass away from the coffee bags. Note the walls under the top mat, gorgeous! How much did this beautiful piece cost? Less than $75! The top mat was raised up about 1/2″ to keep the glass off the artwork and create a shadowbox effect. Note the suede bottom mat is duplicated under the top mat for the “walls”
Framing special albums are a great way to display them and be able to show them off. We had fun framing this album using the Komodo Red 1.5″ frame from Larson Juhl. It’s highly polished lacquer with subtle textures and rubbed edges worked perfectly for this design. Working from the bottom up, the album is floated on a red suede mat and complemented then with a black linen mat. We added a Larson Juhl Goya black beaded fillet then a golden top mat.
