Why we are unique

Our approach to framing focuses on sustainabilty featuring our diverse inventory with over 500 different in-stock mouldings,

Eric Linville, a Bay Area native, began his love of framing in 2003 working initially as a designer and then developing other framing skills. He commenced his career with Eco Framing in 2011 where he cultivated all aspects of framing. His favorite object to frame is the one that you might think is impossible to do, as well as items like guitars, lacrosse sticks, and baseball memorabilia. He enjoys creating cool designs through completion, and how clients are wowed by what we create. He also enjoys the challenge of complex client art installations and seeing his hard work installed on our clients walls.

In his spare time, he plays Discgolf and is involved in the community
