Frame it Today

Frame it Today was created in 1983 in Spokane, WA, as a custom department of River Ridge Hardware. River Ridge owner Joe Stout had learned the craft of custom framing from famed 80s framer Paul Fredericks in San Francisco. Since then, Frame it Today has become a renowned custom framing shop for everything from sports memorabilia to local art and family heirlooms, as well as business framing needs for customers from Spokane and beyond.

Years of experience allow us to come up with solutions for framing and mounting various objects and art, presentational ideas, and difficult picture hanging situations. Our experts can complete anything from a simple frame job to a complex shadowbox, we’re glad to help you from design to completion. One of our designers, Paula, has worked in the shop since 1983 and possesses an understated sense of design. With over 25 years of experience at the shop, she’s is exceptional at shadowbox and needleart, as well as original art.

We have a great selection of custom frame options, with over 1,000 wood and metal frame choices and hundreds of different types of mat boards in various colors, textures, and fabrics. With high-end, top of the line mouldings to budget-friendly frames, no project is too unique or too simple for Frame it Today.

You will love our prices if you have shopped around at other custom framing shops, and our product quality is second to none. All matting is performed on a state of the art computerized mat cutter which ensures a precision mat every time. We also offer a selection of readymade frames and mats at 50% off every day. Our frames are assembled right here in our store - not in China.
