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 $49, you get $200 worth of framing and restoration services at Art and Framing, valid at three locations in Alexandria and Lake Ridge.
Art and Framing's on-site teams preserve artwork, heirlooms, and crafts in eye-catching frames crafted to the customers' specifications using selections from more than 2,000 moldings. Like a celebrity's purse or orthodontic headgear, the frame supply room flaunts big brand names, including Larson-Juhl and CMI. Art and Framing’s framers can also print photos onto canvas and craft protective shadow boxes, which display important objects and separate viewers from the smells of keepsake beef jerky.
Pricing varies based on materials used, but frames range from $20 to $220 per foot and can stow an 8”x10” photograph safely behind regular glass for a starting price of $123 (mat not included). Art and Framing also maintains a cornucopian list of restorative services, including replacing broken glass, reviving 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.
