Customer Testimonials

I have used the same framer for years, and if you’re in the San Francisco area (or are wiling to travel, you should too), they are simply the best: Richard Sumner Gallery in Palo Alto, CA.
Silber, Marc. Advancing Your Photography. Mango Publishing Group
Simply the best! Mahmut is a wonderfully creative craftsman.
Ron S. Atherton, CA
This is a long overdue note of thanks for impeccable framing of some of our favorite pieces!
Framing is an art form in itself and Mahmut and his staff have it mastered!
Laura H. Menlo Park, CA
After some adequate framing done elsewhere on the peninsula I found Richard Sumner's and have come back again and again. In fact, I never consider going anywhere else despite coupons and groupons offered regularly. Why? Because Mahmut and his staff do top-notch work and I'm always thrilled with the results. I receive one-on-one consultation, a written cost breakdown and the piece is ready when stated. Even the artist of one piece commented that the framing was the best he'd seen.
