The alphabet was originally invented so that babies wouldn't realize they'd been tricked into thinking a few crummy wooden blocks were toys. However, it can also be used to string letters into words, as today's Groupon from Frame The Alphabet proves. Choose between the following options:

  • For $65, you get a standard alphabet frame (a $134.99 value).
  • For $75, you get a deluxe alphabet frame (a $154.99 value).

Today's Groupon can be used toward any products, including signature boards and gallery blocks. Additionally, with each shipped order Frame The Alphabet will include a $75 gift certificate for a future purchase.

Guided by the creative vision of a passionate professional who trained at the New York Institute of Photography, Frame The Alphabet mixes and matches black-and-white images of pseudo-letters shot in their natural surroundings, be it a D doubling as a floating lime wedge, an M disguised as a bike rack, or an O cavorting as the back of Aunt Eloise's head. Customers can spell out their own meaningful word or name with the collection of photos showcased on the site's interactive letter bank. Adventurous word puzzlers may wish to work in visual thematics, crafting names entirely out of sports images for the family athlete or create an ironic counterpoint to words such as nature with images of city signs, industrial faucets, and spinning cogs. Once you've spelled out a beloved word, abstract concept, or mnemonic device for remembering a spouse's name, the whole thing will be encased in a 39.5"x15.5" standard or deluxe frame in handsome black or brown and shipped directly to your deserving giftee.

Frame the Alphabet

When photographed just right, the bend of a wrought-iron beam or the curve of a stalk of wheat can look just like a letter of the alphabet. This creative observation captured the attention of photographer Crystal Copeland—a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography—who became inspired to seek out more outdoor features that could double as letters. With the help of her business-savvy husband, Lee, Copeland strung these letters into words and began selling them at an online store—Frame the Alphabet.

The site's interactive letter bank houses a vast collection of Crystal's photos, which can be used to spell out names and words. You may wish to work in visual thematics, crafting names entirely out of sports images for the family athlete or creating an ironic counterpoint to words such as nature with images of city signs, industrial faucets, and spinning cogs. The selected word is then encased within a brown or black 39.5"x15.5" frame made from real pinewood or printed onto a single, wooden gallery block, which comes ready to hang. The signature-board option further customizes the piece with a blank matte board and an 8"x10" space where you can insert a personal picture.
