Framing a portrait creates an elegant presentation, protects it from the elements, and causes just enough glare to prevent Aunt Esther's knowing gaze from being a constant source of anxiety. Pamper portraits and more with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of custom framing and services at Art of Framing, which will donate $1 for every Groupon bought to the "Transform a Life" Animal Safehouse Program.
Art of Framing specializes in creating frames for almost anything, including posters, fine art, certificates, collectables, jerseys, medals, and exceptionally delicious ham sandwiches. Call and challenge the staff to frame unique, difficult, or misshapen objects; they will be happy to work out logistics and pricing for even the most eccentric requests. Choose from thousands of frames in a range of prices, and match them with hundreds of mat and specialty glass options. Pricing for items 16''x20'' or smaller generally falls right around $100 and most orders can be framed and ready for pickup in two weeks.
For each Groupon purchased, Art of Framing donates $1 to the "Transform a Life" Animal Safehouse Program, which takes care of the pets of domestic-violence victims when domestic-violence shelters can't accept them.
The Art of Framing
The Art of Framing's skilled craftspeople protect and prolong the life of treasured paintings, photographs, and three-dimensional artifacts by encasing them behind thousands of frame designs. Outside of their standard framing services, technicians also stretch mats and fabrics; heat-mount delicate documents; and mend scratched, chipped, and shrink-rayed framework. More than merely preserving personal collections of photos and posters, The Art of Framing promotes the area's thriving art community, hosting a show once a year as well as selling local artists' work in the gift shop.
