I saw this art supplies and picture framing store when I had an appointment to see my dentist (Dr. Tietzer) who's next door. I wound up buying some supplies and I also had a family photo re-framed and now it really looks great because of the mat and the different frame. It looks like I'll be come back to have some other pictures framed so we can hang them on the wall alongside the stairs. I'm very happy with the conversation and suggestions so it's a five star Google review for Lake View Art Supply from me.

I decided to post Google reviews about some of the businesses and stores I frequent on a regular or semi-regular basis that stand out in terms of offering excellent customer service along with quality work and/or products. Lake View Art Supply on Foster certainly meets that criteria and I look forward to doing business with them for years to come since I still have quite a few posters and prints to be framed and no one does framing better!
