It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, and it's through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Frame your art in fine form with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of custom framing at Art and Frame World in Maple Grove.
The official framer of the Minnesota Vikings, this family-owned business has played the frame game for more than 10 years, helping keepsakes and sports memorabilia put their best faces forward without the need for a sea-salt exfoliation. To ensure harmony between the frame, artwork, and surrounding environment, the custom process begins with a consultation. Before making a recommendation, frame fiends carefully consider every display factor, from lighting and wall size to color and poltergeist saturation of the room. Clients are encouraged to bring in photos of the area where the frame will hang. Once the customer selects the perfect 16"x20" off-white frame ($49.99) or 8"x10" black frame ($19.99) for the photo of their fishing trip with Stephen Hawking, border buffs mount the picture to protect against wrinkling and expertly cut an acid-free mat to add interest and focus attention.
Art and Frame World
For Andy and Rachel Lee of Art and Frame World, their framing projects don't end at two-dimensional objects. Photos surround a folded American flag to depict a beloved family member in his military years. A commemorative Minnesota Twins jersey hangs with sleeves folded to show off its decorative patches. A Stratocaster guitar, signed by Jon Bon Jovi and his band, floats on mounts next to a gold record and a ruby-encrusted 8-track tape. This attention to detail is also apparent in the business's traditional frame jobs, which ensconce photographs in intricate patterns. Conservation items such as acid-free matting and UV-protective glass ensure that prized artwork is kept safe from the elements.
