Walls are notoriously sensitive about their inability to grow hair, which is why they tend to cover themselves with paper, tapestries, and baseball caps. Cover your wall’s bald spots with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of premade frames at Cheap Pete’s Frame Factory Outlet. Today’s deal is valid at Cheap Pete’s locations in San Francisco, San Mateo, San Rafael, and Walnut Creek.
Cheap Pete’s provides appropriately fitted frames for its customers’ wall-ready pictures, posters, prints, and 2-D artistry. Outfit both load-bearing and purely ornamental walls with ready-made frames, such as a Dennis Daniels wood black frame ($8.46 for 5”x7”) ideal for displaying images of your favorite cheese-sayers and cheese mongers. Museum-style frames add an Old World touch to any room, and collage-style frames allow for compound picture-holding. Imprison your favorite concert poster in a basic black wood Fillmore frame ($21.96 for 13”x19”), or protect a meaningful bordelaise recipe with the Ramin cap wood frame ($15.96 for 11”x14”).
Over the past 25 years, Cheap Pete’s framers have honed their technique to a science, creating high-quality framing for any type of artwork, document, or object. Four Bay Area locations stock a huge selection of ready-made frames, including environmentally friendly options crafted from sustainably harvested pine or bamboo. Collage frames display a multitude of photos, showcasing favorite family memories or charting the development of a tiny infant into an adult-size infant. Customers can also create DIY frames with a large selection of framing tools and supplies.
Cheap Pete’s custom-framing services give customers the choice of more than 300 styles of mouldings, five types of glass, and a rainbow of mat colors. Shadowboxes display three-dimensional objects such as sports jerseys, matchbox cars, or exhibitionistic human beings. The shop also stretches canvases onto canvas bars, readying them to be hung at home or on the walls of a gallery.
