The Nainsook Difference

At Nainsook we pride ourselves with delivering the best customer service to each and every client. Our goal is to give you the individual attention that you need, taking any amount of time to help you choose the special mats and frames that will enhance and protect your art for a lifetime! We’re a local family owned business and have over 30 years combined experience in the framing industry.

Do you want your art to really stand out? We can help you choose just the right mats or mouldings that will show off your piece. In addition, if you are concerned about longevity of the art, we offer museum grade preservation so that artificial or natural light won’t fade your watercolor or discolor the material in your shadow box.

Roz & Dan

Roz and Dan opened Nainsook on November 1, 2016. It was Roz’s framer, Carolyn who planted the seed that maybe Roz and Dan would like to take over her framing business because she was moving out of California. They both felt that it was the perfect time in the Village of La Mesa to take the leap and open a custom framing store and art gallery.

Roz and Dan both come from artistic backgrounds. Dan was a commercial printer for 15 years and Roz is an artist, doing award winning paintings in several mediums. Dan’s strong point is creating designs which will really enhance your art and building the frames to completion in the back room. Framing came as second nature to Dan and he really enjoys the attention to detail and watching as the product is created.

Roz loves to help with design when she is at the business. It takes experience with color and design to be able to choose framing materials that will set the art apart and make it shine without overshadowing it. She also oversees the marketing and accounting for the business.

Together, along with their staff they want to offer you the best experience you will ever have in custom framing. Their great customer service and attention to detail are sure to make you the next happy customer!

Our Happy Customers

I’ve been here for some fun classes however I didn’t think about framing some family pictures until a friend told me that she loved the work that Nainsook did on her projects. The customer service has been great. I really appreciate the time that Dan, one of the owners, has taken to give me some framing options.

Support your local businesses! Especially this one! Dan and Judy are masters at their craft. Great eye, great teamwork, fantastic duo. I had a boat load of family pictures I wanted framed and Dan was sooooooooo sooooo patient with me. Nainsook has an eclectic selection of frames to choose from, accompanied by a ka-jillion types of mattes. I HIGHLY recommend coming in to get your precious memories framed by them. Or, paint and wine at their evening events. Come on in and give ‘em a try! You won’t regret it.
