The interior of your home is one of the most rewarding aspects of your Santa Barbara lifestyle. Artwork is a basic necessity of a beautiful environment, and how it is framed will have a major impact on both the appearance of the art and the ambience and feeling of your home.
At Santa Barbara Art & Frame Company our mission is to bring this element of style and beauty into your life in the form of beautiful custom framing. As importantly, we want you to be comfortable in being a contributor and collaborator in the design process. We will educate you and hold your hand through the whole enjoyable journey. We feel our job is not complete until you say “I love it”.
We offer true custom framing for every pocketbook, but we never sacrifice quality. Quality framing adds value to both your artwork and to your living environment, so it becomes an investment that provides returns of personal enjoyment for years to come.
Fine art creation, from initial consultation to final framed art, has been our passion since we began.
We have built a solid reputation on the very simple principles of integrity and determination. Our name is the visible assurance of the quality, reliability, and performance our clients receive every day.
From the darkroom to the current digital lightroom revolution we have been intensely involved in every aspect of the fine arts process in order to give you, the photographer, collector, archivist, gallery owner, or museum collector a strategic partner in developing photographic artwork that not only captivates but lasts for generations.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
We will consult the design process, your preferences, measures, and what frames are best suited for you.
If desired, matting can be applied to the art you want to frame. We provide simple, cloth, or metallic mats.
The process of conservation framing includes hinging, mounting and inserting your art.
