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.
