Until their proper display in museums, the paintings of most Renaissance masters languished for centuries on the magnet-flecked fridges of their proud mothers. Preserve your art for future generations and house guests with today's Groupon: for $44, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Art & Frame Studio in Vista.
With superlative skill, Art & Frame Studio encases prized possessions in immortalizing frames, handling everything that's fit to frame. Skilled staff members, led by Gina Osborne—former president of the San Diego chapter of the Professional Picture Framers Association—use preservation materials such as acid-free mats and UV-blocking glass to block out dust and damaging sunbeams. Use today's deal to secure sturdy enclosures for display-worthy pieces, including posters, photographs, sports memorabilia, and corn flakes that resemble the Queen Mum. Though the prices for custom frames vary, a standard 8"x10" photograph with one mat and conservation glass costs about $100.
