Lives often resemble art, especially the lives of still-sitting fruits, Victorian-era wardrobes, and blue guitar players. Preserve personal masterpieces with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $100 towards framing services at Artistic Picture Framing in Berkeley. For orders over $500, this Groupon also affords an extra 10% off.
Artistic Picture Framing’s craftsmiths add finishing touches to pictures with a combination of polychromatic mats, coordinating frames, and honed technique. The shop’s staff can consult fledgling framers on the best wall-ready home for prized photos, sports jerseys, or Thomas Jefferson doodles of Thomas Jefferson―bolstering each with a complementary color and design scheme. Depending on the size and quality of the frame, mat, and glass, most hangable pieces price starting around $185 (16”x20"). Meanwhile, smaller 8”x10” plain black or wooden casings encapsulate stills atop 2-inch matting ($99+) to outline art crisply without the aroma of a border fashioned from fried bacon. Feel free to opt for a handful of on-tap extras, such as UV-blocking glass and acid-free archival paper, to further preserve memories.
Thought Artistic Picture Framing sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
