What You'll Get
It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Today's deal frames and supplies your art in fine form: for $45, you get $100 worth of custom framing from 45 Degree Custom Picture Framing on Colorado Avenue.
Select from 45 Degree's vast assortment of frames and mouldings to satisfy your personal décor preferences. More than 75 eco-friendly options—carefully cut from wood that is sustainable, recycled, or harvested from reforestation projects—are available, almost half of which feature organic, water-based stains. Prices vary depending on the item; diplomas and wedding invitations usually cost $100, and framed posters run between $100 and $150, while sports jerseys typically smash through $300–$350 worth of piggy-bank change. Anything flat can be framed, although pre-framing steamroller charges may apply for playing-card towers and ancient sarcophagi.
Owner Reed Fair, who has a BFA in fine art and more than 10 years of framing experience, frames each individual piece with the care and precision of a helicopter pilot landing on a ping-pong table. Dust off your prized decoupage of fruit stickers, cereal-box tattoos, and gas-station cigar labels and create a beautifully framed memory that your wall will appreciate forever, or at least until the bulldozers show up. Forty-Five Degree offers free delivery.
Forty-Five Degree is open Tuesday through Saturday.
