What You'll Get
|_Jump to: Details||Reviews_|
Here at Groupon we’re ecstatic about today’s deal because so much of the world is currently unframed. And if you’re like us, you don’t know where to start. That’s why we’ve brainstormed this list of things you could potentially get framed with today’s great deal:
- Wedding Photos
- Family Vacations
- Party Pics
- Your Favorite Celebrity
- Smaller frames that you’ve been holding onto but haven’t yet put to use
If you’ve ever had to get stuff framed, you know it’s expensive; sometimes it costs more than what you’re framing. Well now you can finally find a home for that silkscreened Andrew Bird poster that’s been rolled up in your closet. With today’s deal, $40 gets you a $100 Groupon to Artists Frame Service, good at either location: 1867 N. Clybourn Ave. or 225 Skokie Valley Rd. in Highland Park (both have ample parking). You can use your Groupon on anything in the entire store, including custom framing, ready-made frames, vintage Chicago posters, original art (Chicago silkscreen artist Jay Ryan’s collectible concert poster prints are currently showing at the Chicago location), restroom fees, etc.
Artist Frame Service opened in 1978, the same year Kiss drummer Peter Criss released his terrible solo album. And look who’s on top now. AFS has built a reputation for providing outstanding, professional framing. The staff has an average of nine years experience in the business and come from art backgrounds. They will work with you to find the best way to showcase your prints, photographs, or posters using one of more than 600 in-stock frames or an exclusive imported moulding.
AFS is Chicagoland’s largest frame store and has a one-week turnaround for custom framing. With a quality-control inspector who previously worked for Boeing, your artwork will be in good hands every step of the way.
- “If you want the best. If you want it fast. If you want it right. If you want to be THRILLED…then have your precious photos and your original art framed here. Heck, in my experience even posters come out of this place looking like they belong in a museum. No, they are not the cheapest….but with 5 points of personal inspection (at least), and one week turnaround, and the LARGEST SELECTION OF FRAMES IN CHICAGOLAND, this is the place to go.” – Dan K., Yelp
- “When you go to Artists’ Frame Service you would never know they are the largest in Chicago. They make you feel like family. Their space is roomy and professional, larger than other frame stores I’ve been to. More importantly, their very experienced staff know what they’re doing. The process of picking out frames for some original canvases I bought on vacation was actually fun!” – Contributor, Citysearch
- “Although the name implies that it is strictly a framing shop, this place is also full of great vintage posters (think Chicago advertising posters and such) & original art, all available for purchase. I went in to get something framed and spent a great deal of time browsing their very nice selections as well.” – Jenny z., Yelp
