While prices vary depending on finishing quality, customers can display wild-captured moments for as little as $0.25 for a 4''x6'' print. Professionally processed photos and portraits come emblazoned on Kodak Endura Luster paper, starting at $0.45 cents per 4''x6'' print, and going up to $1.49 for each 5''x7'' image. Those seeking larger sized photos to liven up shamelessly bare mantles can enlarge a print to sizes such as 11''x14'' ($7.95) or 24''x30'' ($45), a size well-suited for hiding a hole caused by a rogue wrecking ball.
Frameworks brings custom aesthetic closure to unframed artwork and peddles already framed photography, lithographs, posters, and more. The prices of custom-framed pieces can fluctuate based on specific customer requests, but a 16”x20” framed double matt with glass or mounted poster or print generally costs around $45. The same treatment can be applied to 24”x36” prints ($59) and 32”x40” Ghostbusters II posters ($75). For former athletes looking to commemorate a career or owners of an untrammeled Michael Jordan jersey, Frameworks can lock a jersey away in a double-matted 32”x40” frame ($125; frames available in larger sizes). This Groupon is also good for pre-framed pieces on Frameworks’ website, so be sure to browse its collection before making any set-in-wood commitments.
Photographer Charlene Potts specializes in capturing some of life’s biggest milestones: new babies, engagements, weddings, high-school grads, and her specialty of pet portraits. Prior to each session, Charlene meets with subjects and furry family members in their homes to discuss personal style and various wall-art options in their space. Her portrait sessions generally last 90 minutes, with a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to review prints. Held 10 days after each session, the follow-up appointment includes a viewing of prints and selection of favorite images. She also provides an online gallery where family, friends, and online avatars who happen to be art critics can view the pictures. She shares her craft in other ways, too. She regularly leads photography classes in which she teaches students about composition, exposure, and camera operations.
People are so concerned with showing their love on Valentine's Day that they often forget to capture it instead. Photography is a proven method for freezing time and securing momentous memories on rectangular sheets of gloss. With a spacious, state-of-the-art photo studio built on two acres of photogenic land, Christopher Norris Photographers is home to four expert photographers with more than 30 years of picture-taking experience each. Commemorate the visible love you share with another, your family, and your infant cousin's newly sprouted third row of teeth, or record a new set of headshots to replace the ones you glued inside all the magazines in your local bookshop.
Family owned and operated for 30 years, Frame Center provides decorative and museum-quality framing services for original artwork, prints, and other memorabilia. With roughly 2,000 frames and hundreds of mats to choose from, mounted and framed pictures under glass start at $29.95 for an 11" x 14" frame, $45.95 for 16" x 20", $69.95 for 24" x 36", and $74.95 for 32" x 40".

Available mats range from paper and museum-grade conservation material to hand-wrapped fabrics. Frame Center's experienced staff also frames shadowboxed objects, photo portraits, and diplomas ($100+), as well as needlepoint or cross-stitch pieces ($70+). Although you can always nail art projects onto a refrigerator door, a wall display offers a longer-lasting opportunity to display your children's illustrations ($24.95+) of Hannah Montana clones playing poker.
