The staff gussies up posters with dry mounting and a metal frame ($60 for posters smaller than 24"x36"; $75 for posters smaller than 30"x40") and places diplomas behind sophisticated framed glass ($80+). Custom framing for images 8"x10" or smaller begins at $75.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
14th Street Framing Gallery
The staff at 14th Street Framing Gallery knows that you don't often choose what you cherish—it might be a photo, a sports jersey, or even a series of jewelry pendants. You can, however, choose how to present it. The shop has been matching coveted items to chic displays since 1978, drawing from a library of hundreds of matting and moulding styles. Staffers can preserve common two-dimensional keepsakes such as posters, prints, and paintings as well as specialty 3-D items and fabrics using shadow boxes.
In addition to their custom framing services, staffers repair frames brought from home or resize them to fit new pieces of art. Their attention to detail enables them to cut and rejoin even delicate antique frames that cracked after their portrait subjects outgrew them. For customers who want to arrange their own mementos or peruse home decor, the store supplies scrapbooking materials and prints.
