What People Have To Say!


One should not under estimate the importance of art in the finishing of a room. Whether it be a collection of smaller pieces or one substantial canvas, art serves as not only a back drop to a setting but very often as the focal point.

With the selection of proper art for a design also comes the task of marrying the appropriate framing which not only complements the art but also to harmonize with the room. This can be a daunting task and one which is full of potential options.

I have found in my years in design that aligning myself with professionals focused upon specific details makes the process of achieving an outstanding and quality product within budget that much simpler. PDR Picture Framing offers that commitment to quality and customer service which I strive for.

I have had a very successful relationship with PDR Picture Farming which has resulted in many varied framing projects, including simple reframing, custom mirrors to larger scale framing of original art with values in excess of $10K. The quality of finished work provided and with a large selection of frame samples to choose from I would highly recommend PDR Picture Framing to anyone. – David Boyes

“Simply put, if you are looking for quality art, a vast collection of styles, wide range of framing choices coupled with second-to-none customer service… this uptown shop is for you!” – Janet McGlynn













I was looking for a local business to frame a large photograph that I had taken when my husband and I were in Jasper on a vacation. I read about PDR and gave them a call. I spoke with Peter and he was great and very helpful. Also let me know that they were offering free pick up and delivery as they have the challenge of the LRT right in front of their business in Waterloo for the next several months.
We decided it would best to bring the picture up so we could check out various frames and mats etc. All was a great experience. PDR prices were very good and below other framers I have previously used.
The picture was framed beautifully and delivered to our home in Kitchener in a great time frame. I will definitely be a repeat customer! Thanks PDR!

It was a wonderful experience with PDR. We have wanted to get this piece framed for a while but it’s size of 4 ft x 6 ft wouldn’t fit in our car. PDR was able to come pick up the piece, suggest a moulding exactly like what we were looking for and deliver it quickly back to us. We will be going back to PDR for all our framing needs.

 We are really happy with our piece.  The price was right, the quality is great and you guys are within walking distance for us, which makes for easy browsing for future frame jobs, or just seeing what you have up on the walls.  You and your staff are friendly, kind and genuine.  I never feel pressured or leaned on in your shop, and that is important to me.

I really admired the existing artwork on the walls. There were so many different styles of framing shown on these pieces. There were also many frames available for sale that ranged from modern to traditional. We have used your company before and are always pleased with the work. Thank You.

The recent painting we had framed was the second piece that your company framed for us. In both instances, we appreciated the guidance provided by staff in selecting the type of frame. The work was done in a timely  and professional manner. While we live in uptown Waterloo and had passed PDR many times, it was the folks at Paula White Diamond Gallery who recommended your company to us.

For many years we had our custom framing done by Hart’s Art.  When Marcia retired and moved to Seaforth we were looking for somewhere else to go.  We wanted someone other than a big retail store.  We were looking for someone that had knowledge, experience, would take the time with customers and provide that personal touch.  We believe that we’ve found that place with PDR Picture Frames.  We’ve now had a few pieces done and are very happy with the results.  Your staff is friendly and meets all the criteria we were looking for.  Your selection of frames, mats etc. is extensive.  You were recommended by our friends Victoria and Bruce Swift several years ago and will continue to be our ‘go to’ place for framing in the future.

It is great you are in the Uptown Waterloo area and so easily accessible. I think you did a wonderful job with the prints I brought in, it was exactly what I wanted.

Appreciately yours Kenton Knutson
