I have used Rita Wong's expert picture framing intermittently over the past 10 years. I was initially attracted to her shop by her reasonable prices, but have come to admire and appreciate her style of service the most. I wish I had the wherewithal to do the framing by myself. Short of this ideal, I like to have some input on the design of the framing. Rita is ultra patient, allowing me to use my own limited, artistic talents to create something I like. Then, and only then, she will critique what I have come up with based on her 24+ years of experience in her current location. Usually it's more of an enhancement than an overhaul, so I get a framing piece that is primarily my design! What a great feeling to have an art work you cherish expertly framed with your own design! A couple of months ago, Rita worked up a bid on a framing piece for my employer. Unfortunately, I had my budget reduced, so I asked her to do the best she could within a very modest budget. She couldn't have been more gracious or understanding. We wound up with a unique piece beautifully but plainly framed that would never have been completed if it weren't for Rita's flexibility and commitment to excellent customer service. Rita is a jewel of a resource for picture framing in San Jose!

We've used Andy at Gallery Framing on several projects for our home. His work and creative ideas have made all our framing and photo projects into art. Andy is passionate and genuinely cares about his work and craft. Recently I had my SF Giants jersey (covered with parade confetti) along with several photos from the World Series celebration mounted and framed. Andy spent a lot of time with me to understand the feeling I wanted to portray with the project. The end result is truly wonderful and a work of art! My mounted and framed jersey is something I will cherish for the rest of my life. You will also love meeting his friendly dogs Milo and Eddy! I would highly recommend Andy / Gallery Framing for any framing projects!
I went in to have a photo framed as a gift for my mom. I had not done this before, so I needed advice. I was helped by Rita. She is so patient, professional and pleasant! The work done was so excellent and my mom was super happy at the present I gave her...thanks to Nice 'n Right. Well, being that I was inside the store, I noticed something that I just "had to have". An absoluely beautiful little painting in a stunningly gorgeous frame. A little out of my range with my modest budget (I can't spend so much, these days), but Rita worked out a way for me to afford the purchase. I like the store and the customer service very much and the first-class treatment I got made me feel they really valued my business!
There used to be a man with extremely long hair behind the counter, as well as a tatooed fellow and a very tall blond man. This was the golden age of this frame shop, you really got a sense of family from the motley crew. Nowadays, they provide every bit the excellent framing service but far less male eye candy.
I had a bunch of family photos I wanted to get put into something special. I found Gallery Framing online and I was really impressed with the work they did. I will tell all my friends and return with something for a friend next time. Good work guys.
What a wonderful shop! He came up with a very handsome design that showed the art off to its best advantage. When I picked up the frame, it looked even better than I thought it would, and since it's been hanging on my wall, I like it even more."
Andy is such a hoot to work with. He really knows his stuff. I have been going there for years. Oh, and check out his new Facebook page under Gallery Framing.
