The Best Custom and Picture Framing Stores in Toronto

Posted by Natalia Manzocco / January 28, 2014

Framing TorontoThe best custom, art and picture framing stores in Toronto will help you perfectly preserve and display that favourite painting, photo or print. They're also the people to call if you want a custom shadow box for that jersey or childhood toy, a little help wall-mounting a large item, restoration services for damaged artwork, or even new prints and original works (if you don't already have something worthy of a custom frame job). Ready to graduate from IKEA frames? Get ready to see that concert poster that's followed you through five apartments in a whole new light.

Here are the best custom, art and picture framing stores in Toronto.

Akau

Akau

Akau has been serving artists and art enthusiasts alike on West Queen West for more than 20 years. For the past decade, it's occupied a tucked-away back-room space near Queen and Gladstone. (For five years, owner Fernanda Faria devoted part of the space for gallery exhibitions before it was taken back over for store operations.) No job's too big or small. They handle everything from large custom jobs down to mats for ready-made frames. More »

The Gilder

The Gilder

Emerging artists, take note. This Morrow Avenue shop specializes in working with creators to figure out what frames suit their work best. All the store's frames, ranging from simple stains to gesso applications to 23-karat gold leaf, are designed and made in-house. Their frames are found in collections all over the world including the AGO's Thomson collection, where their work surrounds pieces by Peter Paul Rubens, Emily Carr and the Group of Seven. More »

Telegramme Prints

Telegramme Prints

In addition to a wide selection of affordable prints, Telegramme has everything needed to spruce them up for your walls (though they have a west-end and east-end location, the framing is done at their Dundas and Ossington shop). Prices are affordable, including a $99 custom frame special for 18 by 24 inch prints -- that's a whole lot of frame for not much cash. More »

Soho Art & Custom Framing

Soho Art & Custom Framing

This Roncesvalles shop pledges to handle everything from posters to priceless art. Soho offers only UV-protective glass and archival-quality matting, which stems from their belief that if it's worth framing, you've got to do it right. For the bargain-hunters, irregular-sized frames are marked way, way down each week, so keep checking back. More »

Picture It Framed

Picture It Framed

This Junction shop, operated by Pat Schnurr, takes an old-school, detail-oriented approach. Schnurr's certification from the Professional Picture Framers Association sets the shop apart, as does her three decades of expertise. (That's evident in the site's comprehensive blog, which is packed with framing ideas and photography tips.) More »

Victor Gallery

Victor Gallery

Art lovers on a budget, take note. None of the shelves and shelves of pre-made frames at this family-owned Queen and Niagara shop run over $120. Lest you be limited by the prefab sizes, though, custom work is also available. The wide selection of ready-mades includes a ton of shadow boxes, as well as frames made from reclaimed Ontario barn wood. More »

The Framing Depot

The Framing Depot

The Framing Depot's vast, bright retail space is a side benefit of its uptown location (on Lawrence Ave., east of the DVP). They've earned raves for their lightning-fast custom framing services, and offer a number of extra services, including pickup, delivery, hanging and in-house consultations. More »

Elgin Picture and Frame

Elgin Picture and Frame

This Dupont and Christie shop vows to frame pretty much anything. A recent addition to their lineup of services is resin coating. They'll mount your image on a box and coat it in epoxy for a glossy finish. They also do pretty much everything else, including art restoration, cleaning, packing and shipping. More »

Milk Glass Co.

Milk Glass Co.

Milk Glass does it all. The custom framing shop doubles as a gallery, and the space frequently plays host to pop-up shops for clothing and other handmade items. On the framing side, the Dundas and Ossington shop will field framing requests for all kinds of art and memorabilia. More »

Akasha Art Projects

Akasha Art Projects

The folks behind Akasha are artists and photographers themselves, with over 25 years experience in the art world, lending them a careful eye for accenting art through framing. If one of their 400 framing samples is the right fit, they also offer custom creations. The Church and Wellesley space also hosts a photography-focused gallery space, as well as a catalog of photography prints available for purchase. More »

Dimensions

Dimensions

This Queen East gallery hosts plenty of original pieces by local emerging and established artists. But if you already know what you're hoping to frame, never fear. Their framing expert, Wendy Palmer, has 20 years of experience in the business. Their services run the gamut from mat cutting and shadowboxes to plaquing and custom mirrors. More »

Another excellent framing shop is Latitude 44, on Dundas Street West, just west of Keele, in the Junction. Two very creative sisters, both of whom have excellent taste, own and operate it. I highly recommend this place.

Superframe should 100% be on that list. The guys at 100 Geary create immaculate frames. I'm a gallerist, and they are the only framer that is consistently perfect.

For those in the Danforth area, there's a great family-run framing shop on the east side of Pape just south of the Danforth (right by the library). I had a bunch of stuff mounted and/or framed there last year, and they did an excellent job. Very friendly and helpful as well.

Totally agree about Eclectic Gallery, a hidden gem in this city. Very detailed work at a reasonable price. Can't believe it didn't make your list, definitely worth checking out!

If you will accept frames that are not too fancy in order to keep your costs low, then DeSerres does the trick nicely. I usually use the one at Spadina and Richmond. They can custom-cut glass for any frame. I got two 18 in x 24 in plain wooden frames with custom-cut glass in each for a total of just over $100. They did it all in 5 minutes at their framing counter.

Are you guys for real???haha. Ive literally been to almost half of these "frame shops" shops and this is all utter nonsense. There a place called KENS framing I think....these guys literally blow all of these so called "fine frame shops" away...go and see for yourself... best prices and honest superior quality....theyve been in business since 1970s I believe... theyve never needed to advertise I noticed...always very busy...

The writer editor clearly has no good knowledge or experience about framing stores in the city. They have completely missed some of the very original and highly respected and reputable framing shops in GTA. My parents used to go to G&K back in the 60' 70's who set the benchmark and one of the pioneers in the custom framing business in Toronto back in the day. They are still in business formerly town n country now known as The Galleria...Ive been going there forv while now ..ai ccan't imagine at all any of these other framing stores matching up to theire quality or service and premium quality framing....not to mention prices so reasonable that my friends and business associates constantly visit to frame anything and always more than happy with everything. Try them out youll be amazed!! I was there last 2yrs ago..I think its no called centrepoint .

I so apologize... I mixed things up.. the store is called The Galleria which is located inside the Centerpoint mall. Ive been all over the city for many years now and tried and heard a bunch about framing shops...The Galleria centerpoint mall seems to he offering not only excellent prices on framing but quality that surprises people!!

This list is irrelevant because Off The Wall on Queen at Augusta isn't mentioned. They do great work, and it's a family run business that's been on Queen for somewhere in the region of 30 years.

Elgin Picture and Frame has been our go to framer for years. They have been around for 40 years and have always been professional and great to work with...I love their new resin coating service. The staff is knowledgeable and they have awesome Art and Rock memorabilia to look at if you have to wait.

The Framing Depot is a dingy, dusty, messy with no price advantage. Sales staff was not helpful in picking out frames to complement the artwork I brought. Their quote was not competitive and I didn't even feel comfortable leaving my artwork there.

On the other hand, Telegramme has always done an amazing job with what I've brought them and have a good turn around time. Their sales staff have always been willing to help pick out frames and matting, offering good suggestions and steering me towards an end product I've always been more than happy with.

Honestly this article and the so called "top 10 framers" is all a crock of Sh*t. The editor writer clearly has no clue. Ive tried 6 of the 10 framers listed over the years and I wasnt very happy to say the least and in fact 2 of them are on the verge of closing down and I wont mention any names. I discovered a gem of a frame shop and they are located in the TARGET community mall a while back at yonge steeles. Also there is another frame shop down the street from them as well which is pretty good called Perfect picture or something? But than again I still prefer my first choice. This framer called Galleria Framing I believe offers surprisingly very reasonable prices and their quality of work blew me and my wife away AND customer service was impeccable. This is now my go to place and I have recommeded it to 3 of my close friends and colleagues and they were also incredible happy with the quality of work and services.

Try Adina Photo and Framing downtown on Grosvenor street. You'll never look back, and your art will look better than ever. They use only archival materials to preserve your art, they are creative and their prices are more than fair - some people call it "the little shop that could" - but don't be fooled by its size: they will frame any object for you and will make it look fantastic. They also have a second location called Galleria 814 on St. Clair west. They have a computerized matte cutter on both locations - you can have your matte cut in seconds.

Yeah, this list is seriously lacking. I've been going to Adina photo since the mid-90's and wouldn't even think about going elsewhere. All archival materials and the staff is ACTUALLY interested in framing my art in a fun and creative way. They even have a basement full of pre-made stock frames that they will resize, I have had this done before and it is always flawless.

I went to 2 frame shops on Doncaster in Thornhill and I walked right out..Horrible service! And very expensive. They didnt even really know what they were talking about. Ive heard alot of good things about some shop at Centerpoint Mall which I plan on checking out tomorrow. I will still shop around and check out some place called Frames depot and Thanks to Sarah and Casandra I will also pay Seven Art Gallery a visit or a call as you mention and than see where I like the best. I used some place called Frames and Pictures couple of yrs ago and was not very happy at all. The results of these top 10 however I must say is very biased. Half of the places mentioned my collegue and 2 family friends have used and they had the worst experience to be honest and there pricing was ludicrous. And what you do..DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING TO MICHAELS!! Unless your money grows on trees and you dont mind getting robbed. lol

Hi Jeremy, I live in North York area and looking for a local place. I agree about those stores on Doncaster. Did you check out the other places by any chance? Are you speaking of that gallery in the mall by canadian tire? Perhaps you can save me some time and let me know what you thought about there service and prices. Someone at my work was telling me that they have good prices and a good selection. I would never go to Michaels! Insane prices. Frames and pictures Ive never heard of. Sevan Gallery I think Ive driven by them along yonge DT? Thanks!

Gallery Hi Art is an established private commercial gallery that has been open for over 14 years, located in the heart of Toronto near Yonge and College. The Gallery has recently opened a new location in Toronto's Fashion District. It's a cosy little space filled with exceptional quality paintings. The gallery showcases the work of some very prestigious Chinese artists, including Qunce Zeng ( http://quncezeng.com/) and Jianping Meng. The prices are the most reasonable I've seen in the city!
Additionally, the gallery offers custom framing and stretching at extremely affordable prices.
Highly recommend visiting this new gem!

I'll keep it short. In all honesty The Galleria Yonge & Steeles is hands down my favourite picture framer in the Toronto & the GTA so far that is. Just call or contact them first and get more info and you'll see what I mean. They even give quotes over the phone! I believe the # is 416 223 4349.

My family, friends,co-workers all use Incurable Collector Gallery in the Beaches. They are Toronto's best custom framing shop being in business now for over 30 years. They offer the largest selections of frames available and if you don't see it they will find it for you or have it in the back. Prices are more than reasonable. Everyone I know would agree that Jose the owner can frame or fix any type of picture frame. He is a true framer and carpenter with over 40 years experience. He can fix anything and frame anything. Cannot say enough about www.incurablecollectorgallery.ca

If anyone is looking for a fantastic framer and art gallery in the GTA (Thornhill, Richmond Hill, Vaughn) go to Marquis Galleries at 1102 Centre Street, close to Promenade mall. Very knowledgeable and can make anything look absolutely beautiful. I have been going here for 15 years now and never have had a bad experience and I know they have been in business for longer. Lots of experience and always a pleasure. Prices are great and will always find something just right to fit budgeting needs.

This is a great blog! I usually only use 4 framing shops in TO depending on what I need done and convenience rush factor. Its Kens Frames in Downsview & Maple, MAGNI(Promenade) But I believe they are closed now!? The Framing Guys out east, and THE GALLERIA in North York inside Centerpoint mall. I have found that they are very honest and personable, very patient, and offer excellent quality custom framing at real discount prices I've never seen before. I will check out Marquis sometime..Thanks Kristina. Its always good to compare.. They all seem to have their specialties and nack at framing things..sometimes one place does something much better over the other and it all comes down to a few very experienced reputable framers in TO which is very hard to find in Ontario these days.. You cant go wrong with any of these above names I've mentioned..

Hi! I'm looking for a very reputable custom framer who offers wholesale pricing on custom framing, as we have about 1200 prints posters that we need beautifully professionally reasonably framed, to be distributed to various sites throughout Canada. Any recommendations? We can afford to use just any framing company and looking for someone we can trust who has the experience and to deliver on time. While we are underway shopping around, we would appreciate feedback and recommendations we may have missed. We need this job complete by the end of January.

Hi David, I used to go to my usual place uptown TO for odd n and ends and small jobs but I no longer do because when I had a large volume project they were not able handle and execute well to our standard so I started using the guys up at yonge steeles in the former town and country Mall..the name slipped my mind now..right at the corner of yonge steeles in that shopping centre. They're a small storefront but very high capacity operation backed by a large factory warehouse location and been in the business for years n years, & they were able to handle the 350 pcs I needed framed steadfast and most importantly excellent quality control and consistency. They're very helpful and very veryy fair prices especislly on quantity orders. I go their for my large projects and as of lately even for all my personal stuff. They can get any job done and I mean ANY! They also have excellent google reviews..look them up! Hope this helps! -Nerisa

Has anyone checked out any KENS GALLERIa locations lately? I imagine they are still just as good as before? I used to go to there R Hill locations many many years back and was always very happy. I recently found out that they moved to Maple and there main head office factory location is still on Finch in North York if Im not mistaken. They were always my go to picture framers... always worked miracles and fair prices!

Another decent frame shop was Frame Express in concord... but I dont think they are still there.. or are they?

Last but not least Oh My Jesus people don't even think about trying going Michaels... Highway Robery prices I kid you not! I walked in few months ago and I ran out 15 min later. I wanted to see if people were real or exaggeratingg about how crazy insane ludicrous Michaels price points were.. Low and behold they were right!!

Hi guys, I DO NOT recommend THE FRAMING DEPOT at all. I was THere last month and they damaged my piece and did not want to take responsibility nor offered any solution. The frame corner were not well aligned and there excuse was that thats the way the moulding comes.. Also I later realized that there prices were much much higher than some frame shops I later discovered in North York & Maple. I wouldnt go back to Framing depot every again. Buyer beware. Very strange framing depot made it onto this list. Even the store is very oddly strange when you enter and I had too wait over 8 min before I was even acknowledged...

I have 2 more places to check out in North York.. as everyone seems to be raving about The Galleria in the mall there yonge street.. and also some places on Doncaster down the street. Hopefully I dont need to shop around any more once I visit these last 2 shops..

BLOG TO might as well put Michaels on this list! I checked out a few of the aformentioned "list" of the so called best framing shops in Toronto and I was very very dissappointed. This list is the furthest thing from the truth. Than I decided to check out Michaels just to confirm whether their prices are as ludicrous and absurred as some people have been telling me and low and behold I ran out! The sales people have no idea what they are talking about and there "sales" are all nonsense. What good is sale when your regular prices are inflated by 500%+ more than whatever everyone else charges!? DUH!! Next stop Im going to check out the couple of framing dealers listed above on this forum.. Thanks for saving me the hassle of shopping around..

Im looking to custom frame some beautiful persian carpets I brought back with me. Im looking for someone who does a great job with fair prices. I checked out Michaels and some other framers and they didnt seem to know what they are talking about and prices were very high.. I live in Thornhill area. Appreciate any suggestion. I am willing to drive anywhere in the city.. tanks

Hi Mostafa, I used Rays in R hill couple times when I lived in the area but now im yonge sheppars area so recently Im shopping around and one store in yonge steeles mall did even better jobs. Very good quality and price! They framed so much things for me from my persian rugs, wedding portraits and canvas oils paintings I brought back for europes. Excellent service too! Thanks - Seda K.

Don't even dare using Michaels people I was there today & service was sooo bad and i couldnt beleive the prices oh my god! how are they in business beats me!? Rip off!! I also checked out telegramme prints yesterday and I was not sold as they didnt appear to know what theyre talking about and the prices were not much less than Michaels either! It seems im going to have to trek North of Toronto to frame my art works.. It better be worth the drive. THE GALLERIA, Picture Perfect, and LEONS House of 10000 frames here I come.. 3 places left to do my final shopping around.. Yes Im crazy I have too much time on my hands.. Has anyone tried any of the above listed? The Galleria seems to be mentioned alot on here.

Is the Framing guys in Oshawa still in business? I cant find them online nor does there business line connect. I used to use picture it framed and framing depot few years back I found that they increased theire prices significantly and the quality of framing is not the same anymore. And who goes to Michaels these days?

Oleg its funny u ask I used to use framing guys in Oshawa couple yrs ago I was recntly driving by back from business meeting and I can confirm theyve closed operations. I use Kens now on Finch especially after moving to Vaughan. Very good service excellent quality framing and surprisingly reasonable prices too. They do have couple of locations apparently. Few people mention Galleria n Leons framing on here but never tried them yet. i dont think you can go wrong with any of these and whats great is u can call them for quote!! Michaels? yuck.

Im from Concord and used to use Magni in the promenade and hillcrest mall until they went out of business few years back. Luckily I discovred Marcuis Gallery very near by and also The Galleria which is at centrepoints mall. Theyre both very very good, very fair prices, good knoweledgable service, excellent quality workmanship and open Sunday! I noticed both these stores mentioned above especially the one at centerpoint which tells you something. Id say call both and shop around and just pick the one that sold u most.
