Pictures transfer us to another place and time without the painstaking process of learning quantum physics or the bother and expense of hailing a lightning bolt. Commemorate precious moments from the past with today's Groupon: for $44, you get $95 worth of professionally enlarged and framed personal photos from art.com. Customers can also use the value of this Groupon toward the purchase of any other art.com goods or services.
The estimable craftsmen at art.com help fashionably preserve memorable moments by enlarging selected customer photos and placing them in customizable, high-quality frames. Using art.com's photos-to-art online studio, patrons can upload a favorite family photo or a cherished dental x-ray they wish to convert into a focal festoon in a wide range of dimensions, from 8"x10" ($29.99+) to 36"x54" ($179.99+). Using the online interface, amateur decorators then search through art.com's selection of more than two dozen frame styles to find an appropriate pictorial sheath. Frames can be forged in a variety of custom hues, and the online interface allows users to upload pictures of their rooms to show how a particular frame may accent the colorful trim on nearby furniture or the marker-stained faces of passing children. Each expertly refined picture is wedged between a high-quality mat board and a frame handcrafted from top-notch wood and metal before all components are thoroughly inspected for smudges, scratches, and cracks. Caring curators then swaddle frames in protective wrapping and ship them to customers, who can expect to receive them in three to six days.
With more than 850,000 images, Art.com boasts an immense variety of ready-to-hang wall pieces and decorative artwork along with professional custom framing and mounting services. Choose pieces from a massive selection of media and styles, including photographs, vintage art prints, and abstract pieces, or search by subject matter for items such as iconic album covers and movie prints. An artist search can help perusing patrons snag fine-art prints from Matisse and Munch or one of the pulp pieces by Andy Warhol, best known for his daring depiction of infamous midcentury gunslingers the Elvis triplets.
The site's Photos to Art feature lets shutterbugs upload digital snapshots to the site and select a custom frame using a quick interface that offers more than 25 custom frames, a range of sizes, and more than 80 museum-quality mats. In addition to framing uploaded photos, Art.com can also print them on a canvas stretched across wooden support bars and protected with a gallery-grade UV finish. Patrons can view mockups of their custom portraits to ensure they'll match the walls on which they'll hang. Art aficionados can also choose prints from a moody lot of black-and-white beauties before encasing them in a variety of smart frames. Purchases are protected by Art.com's return policy, which guarantees 100% satisfaction.
