Digital technology has allowed for the introduction of many new art forms, just as Leonardo da Vinci once predicted on his blog. Upload a masterpiece with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an 11"x14" digital print in a 16"x20" frame at Art Materials.
The expert framers at Art Materials transform pixels into keepsakes by printing digital photos and fitting them in sleek, archival frames. Clients begin the process by ensuring their image's dimensions and file format match those in the online directions. Afterward, clients submit the file by email or digital carrier pigeon. Upon receiving the pic, a craftsperson at Art Materials feeds premium luster photographic paper into a printer’s ink-spitting innards to create a vibrant 11"x14" reproduction. Fresh prints pop against an ArtCare double-thick mat board, whose patented archival technology prevents fading and discoloration. Framers gather up the mounted photo and secure it to a matte black 16"x20" frame, fitted with Conservation Clear glass and a tiny silk parasol to protect the portrait's thin skin from UV damage. Finally, patrons pick up the finished photo for free from Art Material's shop. Orders placed before Saturday, December 10 are guaranteed for in-store pickup before Christmas.
