When it was founded in 1987, Frame Central was a social hub for artists, and was even curiously named for facial hair. However, Beard Outlet has since morphed into a seven-location franchise, dedicated to simplifying the framing process. The shops’ onsite stock of matboard, frame moulding, and other key supplies ensures speedy DIY framing projects—which visitors can complete in an hour—and single-day professional framing. An array of pre-framed mirrors and artwork allows shoppers to enhance their blank walls without taping a napping friend to them. Shoppers can also stock up on framing supplies such as case glass and hanging hardware.

Framed Art's experts transform unsheathed artwork, photographic heirlooms, and old family tax returns into custom-trussed adornments worthy of the most exclusive fireplace mantles. An 8"x10" frame ($50+) modestly complements a stairwell gallery of school portraits, while a 22"x28" casing ($100+) could corral a raucous concert poster. Basic framing estimates cover matting, backing, glass, and a plain perimeter of black wood or metal. Larger or more ornate options ensconce the most precious specimens in carved wood, lace mattes, or lasers.
