Without framing, all paper objects would be considered equal, making cocktail napkins as valuable as the first transatlantic paper airplane. Valorize the valuable with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get $200 worth of framing, plus an additional $50 toward any framed artwork at Alexandria Framing. This Groupon is valid at three locations in Alexandria and Lake Ridge.
Alexandria Framing preserves artwork, heirlooms, and crafts in eye-catching frames, providing customers with more than 2,000 moldings from brands including Larson-Juhl and CMI. Alexandria’s framers can also print photos onto canvas, craft shadow boxes, and a less stinky display method than smoking mementos like beef jerky.
Pricing varies based on the material being framed but frames range from $20–$220 per foot; stowing an 8”x10” photograph safely behind regular glass starts at $123 (mat not included). Alexandria Framing also maintains a cornucopian list of services including replacing broken glass, restoring oil paintings, and digitally editing photos to look like stick-figure drawings.
Alexandria Art and Framing
For more than two decades, Alexandria Art and Framing's knowledgeable staffers have meticulously enveloped and conserved images with expert framing services that transform personal memorabilia into elegant artwork. Elegant rectangles line store walls in an array of shapes, colors, and styles—including gold frames with antique appearances and stained wood etched with ornate motifs. Alexandria Art and Framing's artisan picture enhancers put their passion into practice to beautify each image with mat boards, mouldings (from such brands as Larson-Juhl and Roma Moulding), and box frames, a specialty of the frame shop. From valuable baseball cards to blue ribbons from hot-dog-eating contests to poster-size family portraits, any piece of artwork can be skillfully encased before proudly displayed.
