Without framing, all paper objects would be considered equal, making cocktail napkins as valuable as the first transatlantic paper airplane. Protect your precious paper with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 toward custom framing at ArtSource Fine Art.
At ArtSource Fine Art, experts set paintings and photos atop a menagerie of matting options before ensconcing them in one of more than 3,000 frames in an on-site framing shop. One of the available collections is created one square at a time by framing guru Ed Wright, who hand carves, hand gilds, and hand high-fives each piece. Prices depend on a variety of factors, including project size, frame style, and the materials used. Mount an 8"x10" painting or pita on a single mat and surround it in a simple black moulding ($85), or upgrade to acid-free materials (an additional $25 for most 8"x10" items) to thwart sun damage. Customers in need of framing fodder can also check out works by the gallery's affiliated artists.
