Welcome to Frames on 3rd.
We are a friendly, professional, owner-operated custom frame shop located in San Francisco's historic Dogpatch neighborhood. The owners, with over 50 years framing experience between them, will greet you and help you design your project. They will also build it, so your artwork is always in the hands of an expert. Why trust your precious art, or even your snapshot or poster, to an overpriced franchise when you can bring it to us and save?
We carry a HUGE selection of frames in all styles and price ranges. We will create a beautiful, unique frame for your artwork, whatever your budget.
We update our inventory constantly, so you're assured of access to the latest styles and the best classics. If we don't have what you want,we will get it or create it. Your options are almost endless.
Whether you're a professional designer or a first time framer, Frames on 3rd is ready and able to help. We are fully insured and skilled enough to handle the most precious works of art, and we treat everything given into our care as though it was just that.
We have tons of experience with unusual requests and specialty frames, but we are equally able to make your ordinary snapshots and newspaper clippings shine on your wall. None of our thousands of frame choices quite right for you? No problem. We can create custom finishes to compliment your art and decor at much lower prices than other high quality shops. We offer discounts on our already low prices to large volume projects, and to the repeat designer trade.
We have a great selection of framed original art and mirrors for sale in our gallery, at amazingly low prices. We frequently feature shows of local and international artists for sale at much lower prices than other San Francisco galleries. Click on our gallery page to view our latest offerings.
We create custom framed mirrors to exactly fit the space you are trying to fill, and have beautiful framed mirrors ready to hang in many sizes.
We offer repair, touch-up and restoration services for frames, and can repair or restore your artwork on paper or canvas. Some touch-ups and repairs are done in house, and we have excellent connections with the Bay Area's best art conservators for more involved work. We can make your battered treasures look great again.
