Owner Sue Duffy has been in the framing business for more than 25 years. Believe it or not, it all started with her family’s stitchery hobby. As they finished cross-stitching projects, they started framing them for their own display. Their interest in creative framing grew as well as their experience and eventually they opened their own framing shop in the Inland Empire.

Sue is a professional picture frSue Duffyamer and designer. In 2000, she moved to the desert and began working at Express Frame. Soon Alex Garcia started as well, becoming an expert framer and installer. Sue took over ownership in 2010 and together she and Alex have worked hard to build the business. They have an impressive amount of experience and passion for their craftsmanship. Framing is so much more than just putting artwork in a wooden rectangle. They love the creativity of framing pictures and collectibles. However, the best part of the business is getting to know the customers and the stories behind their treasures.
