Apollo 11 Memorabilia - double-sided frame

This gentleman brought us a number of original documents from the Apollo 11 mission, for us to custom frame using museum-quality materials. He asked for a double-sided look, because of the number of documents, some show on one side and the rest via the back of the frame. We used two pieces of glass and two mat designs. He loved how it came out.

Marathon Medals Custom Framed

We worked closely with this amazing athlete to make sure we did justice to all of his achievements as a marathon runner.

Custom Framing 3 Duy Huynh Limited Edition prints

This gentleman and his family are big Duy Huynh fans and had us custom frame these 3 limited prints. These frames are going above the fireplace as a frame gallery. Our goal was to create cohesiveness between all of them while making each one unique. We used the same gold frame, same top 6-ply white mat and different bottom mat for each piece. To protect them for a long time to come, we went with museum glass. Customer loved how they turned out.

Military Memorabilia

We are honored to do so much work for our military. Here's a special project we did for this gentleman. He wanted us to create a shadow box to preserve his Granpa's memorabilia, including a U.S. flag. We built a triangular frame for the flag, which we then attached to the final rectangular frame. We are proud of how it came out, and he loved it!

Family Photo in the woods

Hand-made Needlework Art with Custom Matting Design

A lady brought in these two amazing cross-stitch works of art for us to custom frame. She spent countless hours working on the angel and was extremely proud of it. She wanted the very best framing combination for it and left the matting design up to us. We went with a double fabric mat design and added stars on the top mat to continue her cross-stitch design. She absolutely loved it!

Log Photo on watercolor paper

A black frame doesn't always work, but when it does, it is amazing what it does for the Art, as in the case of this military photo. This lady brought in this incredible black and white photo for us to custom frame and ship to Boston. One of our favorites. She loved it!

Autographed Jerseys Custom Framed

This gentleman is updating his son's room and wanted to surprise him with these two autographed jerseys, so he had us do the custom framing.

Limited Edition Fine Art

These ladies waited for this piece to go on sale for a long while. Naturally they wanted to frame it using the very best materials. We used  two mats, including a black acid-free mat underneath to make the art pop, a thin silver / white frame with plenty of height and of course museum glass for clarity and preservation. Customers loved it.

Peyton Manning Sports Memorabilia Jersey Details

Check out this Peyton Manning jersey, Custom Framed! Took us weeks between other projects to get it done. Stitching of the ball and sleeves were the toughest, but worth it. The blue background is suede and the bottom portion is a special Football matboard. The double mats with two openings for two images are the official NFL Indianapolis colors. There's glass but is almost invisible, it's called Museum glass. We ended up using two frames stacked together, the blue one inside is wrapped in fabric and the one outside is a deep walnut color. Hope you like it! Learn More about our Sports Memorabilia Custom Framing Services.

Hand-made Art from the Del Mar fair

This lady and her mom brought us 4 of these hand-made art pieces from the local Del Mar fair here in San Diego, CA. We used a beautiful walnut moulding, finished with natural bees wax and museum glass for clarity and conservation.

This lady absolutely loved how her painting turned out. We started with a rolled up painting, stretched it and custom framed it using a hand-wrapped fabric liner on the inside and a silver frame on the outside.

Indian Art Paintings Stretched & Framed

Biggest compliment a shop can get is when the customer says she drove a long way to your store, even though there are at least 10 Framing shops much closer. That's what this lovely lady said about our work and we are humbled! Beautiful Indian Art stretched and framed. She loved them!

What Customers Say about Jacquez Art

Awesome is an understatement in describing this business and the experience that i had here.

I came into Jacquez Art & Custom Framing looking to have an over sized panoramic print of Mission Beach framed for my Dad.  Rj was extremely courteous and helpful in discussing a range of options for framing and mounting my print, very knowledgeable.  We quickly agreed on what we thought would look best, in and out in less than 15min, with the understanding that it would be ready after the holidays.  Not only did the finished product look better than i could have imagined, but Rj and his wife went out of their way to have my project finished the very next day, which happened to be the morning of Christmas Eve!

It is readily apparent that these are people, who truly love and care about their work and are consummate professionals in every sense of the word.  Any future framing needs that i have will be handled exclusively by Jacquez Art & Custom Framing.  Thanks again Rj! See finished project here.


From the moment that I stepped in to “interview” if this shop was going to be able to work with what I was asking for back in August they treated me like I was family. They showed all the different options on framing and mat colors, worked the best they can on a respectable pricing range, and most importantly they showed me how excited they were to get such a different project. R.J. and his wife bent over backwards and then some to make me the wonderfully made “Thor” shadow box.

They made me feel very comfortable with leaving all the keepsakes without any doubt. R.J. kept me up to date by emailing me on how the project was coming along and always made sure that I was happy with the progress.

When I received the shadow box I was ecstatic. It was way beyond my expectations and couldn’t have asked for anything better. I wasn’t sure if I would like the yellow since it’s not a color I favor but it was in the Charger color theme and I’m so happy that I was advised by R.J. and his wife on picking that color because it was perfect!

I can go on and on about how fantastic Jacquez Art & Custom Framing is. Just know that your prized possessions are their prized possessions once you walk in that door. They have gained me as their forever customer without one doubt! See the final project here.



I needed a travelers map framed ASAP for my girlfriend’s Christmas gift. I found Jacquez Art & Custom Framing on yelp. Well RJ and his lovely wife not only helped me, but made me feel like my important gift was theirs too. I explained to RJ what I wanted, his wife helped me pick a matching frame and had it ready for me before Christmas! It was beautiful and my girlfriend loves it. We already pinned all the places we have been together (RJ used a cork board backing so the pins stick perfectly!) and are planning our next trip. I can’t thank RJ and his wife enough. They treated me like family and were very communicative with me. I highly recommend them to everyone and I will definitely be back with more crazy framing ideas in mind! See the final project here.


Art that Just Came In

Kaaboo Concert Poster

Kaaboo Concert Poster float mounted

Check out this amazing concert poster from the Kaaboo festival in Del Mar. A couple brought in this colorful poster from a concert they went to. We love the colors in the art and the plan is to float mount it on a green-toned, textured mat and finish it with a 3" aged dark frame with a brown side profile.
Angel Needlework Art

Angel Needlework Art

A lady brought in two amazing needlepoint works of art for us to custom frame, this Angel is one of them. She spent countless hours working on the angel and was extremely proud of it. She wanted the very best for it and left the design up to us. The plan is to go with a double fabric mat design with stars cut on the top mat to continue her design.
Log photo printed on Watercolor paper

Log photo printed on watercolor

Check out this amazing 'log' photo printed on watercolor with extra white edges, that will take the place of a white mat. Because of the lack of a mat, we will use a spacer to make sure the glass doesn't touch the art. A black frame to fit this photography art perfectly.

Wedding Photo Print

A proud mom brought us this wedding photo of her daughter's wedding. The photo is already elegant and tells a great story, so we are going with a white mat and a black frame, plus anti-glare glass. Stay tuned for the final product.
