Entering one of The Framing Establishment's locations is like walking into an art gallery. Large traditional landscapes and contemporary abstracts hang on the walls, and shadow boxes housing portraits and collectibles line the shelves. Amid this modern decor, professional framers scuttle about, sizing objects and answering customers' questions. They help their patrons pick out ready-made frames and art or consult with them to determine flattering custom mouldings and mats for their photos or most impressive parking tickets. They also help customers transform their TVs into works of art by providing frames and fabrics that complement home furnishings.

Images by Jami frees photo sessions from the steel shackles of the studio by using on-location shoots throughout the Salt Lake City area. Jami Edman, of "Images by" fame, opts for fun in her photo sessions, where smiles arise spontaneously and not through dairy-related verbal commands. During your half-hour photo session, Jami will vanish into the background, only to photo-pounce on natural moments capturing the subjects' true personalities. She might snag a smile from a graduating high-school senior gleeful at the prospect of never having to deal with a chaperoned dance ever again, or forever capture the image of your three boys giggling at the many-worlds interpretation of the Schrödinger's cat paradox. After the session, Jami will provide you with two digital files of your choosing from the photo shoot, which you can store in your digital wallet and show to digital friends at the digital hair salon. These digital files are "print released," meaning that you can use them at your discretion for prints up to 11x14. This Groupon is also valid toward 10% off any prints ordered from the photo session.
