About Us

Our Portland manufacturing team.

The foundation for our Frameable website and app stems from the quality and craftmanship we have developed within the family of brick-and-mortar custom framing shops. Frameable allows you to print and frame from the comfort of your home. Under the umbrella of Northwest Framing, our family of frame shops have represented premier picture framing in the Pacific Northwest for over 40 years. We have 19 stores in Washington and Oregon under the brands Museum Quality Framing, Beard’s Framing and Frame Central.

The first "Beard Frame Shop," as it was known then, was founded by Terry Beard in 1974 in Portland, OR. We have Beard's Framing shops in Beaverton, Tualatin, Vancouver, and Lacey.

"Beard’s Framing Outlet" first opened in Portland in 1987. This popular destination for affordable picture frames became Frame Central, which now includes several stores in the greater Portland and Seattle areas.

Museum Quality Framing was founded by Adrian Hanauer in 1988. You can find Museum Quality Framing shops in Seattle, Bellevue and Tacoma.

In 1999, Museum Quality Framing purchased Beard’s Framing and Frame Central, making us the largest custom framing company in the Pacific Northwest. We have since added a full-service art printing business, an internet fulfillment business as well as a Contract Division serving Interior Designers, Architects, Contractors and businesses throughout the country and abroad.

In 2020, to provide more efficient service and additional products to our east coast customers, we acquired Kaleidoscope Design Factory in Tallahassee, Florida. Kaleidoscope Design Factory is an art consultant and manufacturer that combines original thought and technology to create inspiring work for the hospitality, healthcare, commercial, and government markets.

We are still locally-owned and operated and hand craft all our custom frames at our facilities in Portland.

Our goal is to bring your art to life, and your life to art.
