Much like a butterfly collection or a loose transdimensional tesseract, a family portrait is best kept secured behind a protective pane of glass. Entrap a memory with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of custom framing services from Cannon Framing & Artworks in Metairie.
Cannon Framing & Artworks preserves memories and works of art with custom attractive borders. Crafting high-quality frames of all types, the friendly and knowledgeable staff adorns empty spaces with objects previously stored under beds, from diplomas to baby booties to artistic dust bunnies. The experienced framers can enshrine a 13-inch-by-18-inch family portrait, double matted with foam, conservation glass, and a gold frame ($85 on average) or design a shadow box big enough to boldly show off a cherished collection of baseball cards with pasted-on heads of past presidents.
Cannon Framing & Artworks
For more than two decades, the professional framers at Cannon Framing & Artworks have converted photographs and works of art into tasteful wall displays with matting, protective glass, and frames in classic or contemporary styles. The staff helps clients choose colors that complement a painting’s blues and greens, simple mouldings that draw the eye toward the photos inside, or thick baroque frames that distract police inspectors from noticing stolen Mona Lisa_s. While waiting for the framer to take measurements, peruse the store’s gallery of paintings, posters, and sports memorabilia, many of which reflect owners Kay and John’s enthusiasm for for collegiate sports and pro football.
