Trust For Public land

When members of the Trust had a dedication deadline after the purchase of The Sperling Preserve in Santa Barbara County, they called The Framer’s Workshop to produce 40 framed photographs of the land, along with individual title window thanking the various donors. Each frame was individually wrapped with the donor’s name on the outside for easy presentation. The project was finished on time and within budget.

University of California

We maintain an ongoing relationship with UC Berkeley and frame for dozens of academic and athletic departments. In order to keep up with the requirements of certain athletic and ceremonial offices, we are often required to produce overnight work. We keep a supply of materials on hand for the University and are ready to put in overtime work to get the jobs finished and delivered`` on time. For more photos, we keep a UC portfolio at our shop, which includes many photos of our work for this distinguished institution.

McKesson Corporation

When the McKesson needed an end of year corporate gift with a California theme, we helped them choose a small high quality Ansel Adams poster as a token of their appreciation. We paired these with title windows which individually thanked each contributor. The posters were then framed in simple grey metal frames with ultraviolet protecting Plexiglas™ for worry-free air transport.


When 3D/I needed a corporate gift produced and framed quickly for an upcoming meeting, they called on us to help them. After a brief visit to their San Francisco corporate office, we had the project photo printed by a professional photographic company using Fuji Crystal Archive Paper. The result was a set of professional 20” x 30” photos framed and ready in time for their meeting.

The National Center for Youth Law

The National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) uses the law to improve the lives of poor children. NCYL works to ensure that low-income children have the resources, support, and opportunities they need for a healthy and productive future. When the Oakland office needs a beautifully framed recognition photo and title framed, they come to The Framer’s Workshop. We use a simple, but elegant Michael Faye frame, along with a two-window mat and ultraviolet protecting glass. For this, and many organizations, we keep matting templates and orders on file for all future work. This enables us to facilitate quick turnaround of framed photos and certificates/. We are honored to frame for an organization that does such important work.

Appian Capital

Photographer Stephen Lefkovits asked us to visit Appian Capital to help them choose photographs from his collection for their office walls. We met with executives there and after talking a careful look at their offices, suggested several of Steve’s beautiful nature photos in sizes that would perfectly fit their walls. We also helped design wall décor for an executive’s office, integrating a personal collection with photographic art on three walls. Colors and placement were carefully planned to maintain a professional, yet personal style throughout the office.

Navigator’s Insurance Pro Cycling Team

The Navigators Professional Cycling Team is one of America's premier professional road-cycling teams and a community minded sports organization. Navigators Insurance Company has been, and continues as the title sponsor of the team for the entire 10 year professional term of the organization. We have worked with Navigator’s Insurance to frame a number of large bicycling jerseys for their offices. We frame these jerseys in a simple black box frame style shadow box, and sew the jerseys on to white rag board with additional windows for memorabilia associated with each event.

LORE/California Health Leadership College

When Lore International, a world leader in executive education, needed a framer to handle a rush job for their leadership development class for the California Health Leadership College, they chose The Framer’s Workshop because we had the experience and facilities to handle the job. Our challenge was to help them design a set of 25 frames which could easily be opened by class participants. Each frame had mat windows for a photo and certificate The workshop participants were to be presented with completion certificates and a last minute class photo, which they would pass around and sign, and then put together in the prepared frames at the class site. We made this easy for them by designing a double opening mat, hinged to a double thick foamcore backing. We installed turn buttons on each Micahel Faye frame so that they could easily be taken apart and put back together in the class. We delivered the individually wrapped frames to The Claremont Hotel on the last morning of the class so that the leaders did not have to worry about storing them beforehand.
