“I want to express my gratitude for the excellent framing job (by Tina) of my two pastel paintings.  I thought you’d like to know that one of them, Now and Again Leaves Whisper, won an award at that particular art show.  It means so much to me to be able to trust a framer with my work as well as your willingness to help me stay within my budget…”

“I recently visited several framing establishments in the Reno area seeking ideas ​for my poorly displayed treasure.  When I got to the frame shop I was very pleased with the innovative ideas and the very reasonable prices.  As I am moving from Reno in short order, I was also impressed that the owner volunteered to expedite my work to meet my short time schedule.  I picked up my beautifully framed masterpiece today as promised! It is everything I had hoped for and then some.  Thank you very much!”


“Just wanted to let you know I got the pictures home safely and they look even more beautiful here at home in my setting.  I’m very pleased with them.  Thanks again for your efforts.”

We appreciate your trust and confidence in choosing The Frame Shop at Lakeside as your custom framer.  Our goal is to always provide outstanding customer service, impeccable craftsmanship and captivating designs that keep you coming back for more.  While much of our business is word-of-mouth and repeat customers, new faces are always welcome in our shop.

Here is what some of our customers are saying about our work:

“The overall experience was fantastic…I appreciate your professionalism
thru out the whole experience and love what you did with my pictures.
At Tailhook, I was overwhelmed with all the positive comments I received
 on my work, which opened many contacts, commissions and sales.
I already have my booth booked for next year and will be asking you
to do all the framing again. Thanks again for everything and please tell
​ Tina and your other employee's what a wonderful job they did.”

David T., Tailhook Convention (artist vendor) 9/21/2016

They’ve been in business a number of years and they’re not a chain, so supporting local goes a long way.  I’ve needed a few wires done for pictures and a wood buffalo caricature and they did such an awesome job…If you haven’t tried The Frame Shop, give them a shot. You’ll be super pleased!  Thanks, Liz & Co.!”

Jim M. on Yelp

"A few months ago I had four frames installed. I liked the idea of keeping my purchases local. The owner (Liz) was so helpful in guiding me through all my options to frame 4 unique pieces. She paid great attention to detail. When I picked up my treasured artwork I walked out of the store totally equipped to hang them all. I used to build all of my frames and built art installations at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for 16 years. I know what quality framing looks like. Workmanship at The Frame Shop is second to none. In fact, it was flawless. I would recommend The Frame Shop to anyone's framing needs."


​“Thanks for doing such an awesome job with this!”

“Just wanted to say a big Thank You for your wonderful help and expertise framing our picture.  It looks fantastic and fits right in with our bedroom décor.  Will be back to use your services in the future.”

“The Frame Shop at Lakeside provides great, friendly customer service, not to mention beautifully, and expertly executed, frame work! It's a great place to go if you're not exactly sure what you want; they can give creative and professional suggestions.”

“Great service and frame design.  They have a huge selection and the work they do is clean and fast.”

​“… Although I’m all about creating a grand/flamboyant presentation of my photographs, I decided to keep the focus on the art this time and allow the frames to be very simple.  White matting as well as basic white frames blended into the walls so that nothing ​would distract from the art.  Two were framed in a heavier gessoed, gold ornate style, but these photos could really handle it, and allowed me a little bit of drama with the framing.  Liz and Laurie, two wonderful gals, framed all my work.  Their store is called The Frame Shop and they are located on Lakeside.  I highly recommend them!”


“Your shop has done some very nice work for me in the past but you have truly outdone yourself in this effort.  I brought in a bag of Reno memorabilia and did not feel anything worthwhile could be done with it.  No one, especially me, would expect much from some casino tokens, ashtrays and matchbooks, but boy was I surprised.  Lori, who is in a class of her own, did an amazing job and turned a bag full of junk into a work of art.  This was slated to hang in a back room but after your work it is now front and center in the main living area of our house.  Everyone who has seen it is amazed and I have already had several offers to purchase this piece. Not for sale.  If you have anything to frame have the Frame Shop at Lakeside do it, you will not be disappointed, I can guarantee it.  They will turn something ​that is pedestrian into something that you will not only appreciate but will fall in love with.  Should I ever be lucky enough to obtain a very expensive work of art I would allow no other shop anywhere to touch it. Thanks Again.”

“Just moved from SF to Reno. While hanging pictures, I dropped a stretched oil painting in an antique frame, the painting came out of the frame. Took it to The Frame Shop. Lori knew exactly what to do, and did it... at no charge.  Besides that, this looks like a fantastic, serious frame shop, and I will be back.”

Marcus R. on Yelp

“I have a Kozyndan print from the art gallery here.  It caught my eye right away, and when I looked for it online, I couldn’t find it anywhere else!  It’s so unique and interesting.”

“I had a very last minute Christmas gift I wanted to give - a stitching piece I had just finished for my niece.  On Dec. 23rd I went to another Reno shop that I have gone to many times but they said they couldn't do it by the 24th. I walked into the Frame Shop and Tina helped me. When I showed her what I needed she was very receptive and said she could do it. I knew I needed to pick matting and frames that were in stock, but their selection was big enough that I found the perfect frame. 

Tina was amazing! I could tell she was excited to work with my stitching, and she and I worked together to choose the perfect colors and cuttingfor the mat. I was so surprised to get a call only a few hours later that my piece was done and I could pick it up that same day! How wonderful to not have to worry about an errand on Christmas Eve! The workmanship is outstanding; the piece is stunning, and my sister and brother love it! It was by far the most talked about gift that evening.

I will be choosing The Frame Shop for all my future framing needs. It was a pleasure to work with Tina and I look forward to going back!”

​“Here is what the wall looks like.  I am very happy with the way it looks.”

“I recently had two prints framed here. I found a nice selection of framing and matting options and very helpful and knowledgeable staff who spent a lot of time with me helping me to choose the best option for my print. They were both done in a timely manner and when they said they would be. The really good service started after I got my prints home and noticed one of ​​them had a speck of floating something that was distracting to look at towards the bottom of the matting. When I called them back and told them about it, they were very gracious and told me to bring it back in and they would fix it at no extra charge. I did and when I got the print back, it was perfect. I would definitely go here again, but only with a piece that was worthy of the price. Their options are lovely, but before beginning the choosing process, it would have been helpful if the staff had asked my price range.”


“Professional and talented work. We had Lakeside make a shadowbox for us under strict timelines and ​they excelled with flying colors. They provide quality products and Liz is a pleasure to speak to. I highly recommend Lakeside!”

Stephen M. on Yelp (flag shadowbox pictured right)

​“I have had several very good experiences with The Frame Shop.  Very fine craftsmanship and genial expert service.  I will be going back to them with more projects.”


“Awesome crew, they did a picture years ago and changed owners.  Had to get redone and they did it all for free.  Did an amazing job and very nice.”

David S. on Yelp

“I brought a couple of prints in to the ladies at The Frame Shop at Lakeside, and I have to say that it was a great experience.  My pictures were matted and framed in what I thought was a minimal amount of time, and for less money than I expected.  Both ladies I dealt with were very friendly and knowledgeable about framing and art in general.  Speaking of art, they also have a great selection of artwork by local and regional artists, great stuff in my humble opinion.”

avbeast on Citysearch

“I have just recently brought in another piece for framing.  I have confidence in this local business and have used them a number of times in the past.  They are not the cheapest, but that isn’t why you would go to The Frame Show now is it.  They have many years in this service and their experience shows.  Friendly, helpful and competent!”

Shawna G. on Yelp

“Everything went very nicely yesterday!! The whole office is WOW! with the artwork.

Don was excellent to work with – did the job with minimal disruption to the office and the staff. Really after the initial organization, we barely knew they were in the office, except for a couple of questions that came up in
usual course. The whole thing came off without a hitch!”
