Custom Picture Framing

Custom framing protects your artwork and showcases your style. FrameWorks has hundreds of frame colors, styles and profiles to choose from. Whether your style is classic, contemporary or somewhere in between, we’ve got you covered. We use only archival materials to ensure that your art will last a lifetime. We are educated in the techniques and procedures involved to make sure your artwork is properly protected and will stay that way.


Expert Design Advice

You might expect to be overwhelmed by so many choices. Relax! Our experienced framers can quickly hand-pick the options that best complement your artwork and suit your taste and budget. We can usually tell what mats and frames will look best around your art in a few minutes. Sometimes it takes longer and that’s o.k. too, we will pull every sample off the wall if we have to. It is very important to us that you get a product that you are happy with.

We are also excellent at providing solutions for framing the not so frameable art or objects. Our creative and innovative team always comes up with a plan.


Shadow Boxes and 3D Displays

Sometimes your best memories just won’t lie flat. Bring us your baby clothes, your baseballs, your buffalo skulls—we love a challenge. If you can carry it through the font door, we can find a way to hang it on the wall.


Canvas Stretching

Do you have a painting or print on unstretched canvas? We stretch canvas on stretcher bars with the utmost precision and care.


Custom Mirrors

Mirrors are a decorator’s secret weapon! If there’s a wall in your home that just needs . . . something, that something is probably a mirror. A mirror instantly transforms a dreary space with new light and depth, while the frame can complement your existing décor or create dramatic contrast. When you buy a custom mirror from FrameWorks, you have complete control over the design process and the assurance that we bring the same exacting attention to quality to creating mirrors as we do to framing art. We make custom mirrors in any size and shape you can imagine.


Ready Made Frames

FrameWorks carries a selection of quality ready-made frames for when you just have to have that special frame today! Whether you’re after wood or metal, simple or ornate, large or small – we have them all!


Commercial Installations

Bare walls don’t look any better in your business than they do in your home. Posters, diplomas, even safety reminders make statements about your business. With custom framing you can be sure that statement is professional and up to date. Our business clients include St. Joseph’s Hospital, Western Washington University, The City of Bellingham, The Whatcom Museum, Trillium Corporate Headquarters, The Unity Group and Mt. Baker Ski Area, just to name a few.

When you bring your project to us you can be assured of consistent quality and workmanship – whether you need a few or a few hundred. Of course all of our work is backed by our lifetime workmanship guarantee. And we’re easy to work with – we meet your deadline – every time.

We offer discounts for projects of 10 pieces or more and we understand that our continuing success is made possible by repeat business. And of course, repeat business is made possible by exceeding expectations, something that is simply second nature to us.

So if you need help with a project – large or small – give us a call at (360) 650-1001 and discover why Bellingham Frameworks is #1 in northwest Washington.

Lincoln Center x 100

When New York’s City legendary Lincoln Center wanted to offer gifts of appreciation to their staff, a photograph of the famed landmark by Bellingham-based graphic designer/photographer John Meloy was selected as a lasting memento and 100 12×20”prints were printed by Brett Baunton, owner of ArtScan. Familiar with both the world-class quality of workmanship as well as a well-deserved reputation for meeting deadlines, Baunton recommended Bellingham Frameworks for the epic project. Four weeks and 100 17×25” custom framed prints later, the job was shipped to New York right on schedule and the elegant commemorative framed art was handed out to appreciative staff (including, incidentally, Alan Alda and Alec Baldwin!).
