It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Today’s deal frames and supplies your art in fine form. Choose from the following options:

  • For $45, you get $100 worth of custom framing services from Foursided.
  • For $10, you get $20 worth of eccentric cards and gifts from Foursided’s sister store, Twosided.

Foursided specializes in framing paintings, posters, and pictures, while Twosided dazzles the imagination with a plethora of quirky, inimitable merchandise. Keep paint from escaping a canvas’s edges with an 11”x14” wooden frame (starting at $75, not including stretching), memorialize a memorable movie’s promo poster in a 24”x30” metal frame (starting at $95), or add an attractive distraction to a family portrait with an 8”x10” wooden frame with a 1.5-inch mat (starting at $90) (due to the custom nature of Foursided’s framing, pricing varies depending on your selections). Twosided’s aisles are lined with anomalous crafts and knickknacks ranging from antique flash cards to one-of-a-kind anagram game pieces. Distinctive greeting cards, many of which are handmade, are perfect preludes to offbeat gifts or idiosyncratic proclamations of special occasions.

Foursided

The creative team of framers and decorators at Foursided stocks stacks of creative greeting cards and paraphernalia. The self-described "frame nerds" do more than cultivate a collection of stationery by planting paper seeds in nearby printing presses; they also place prints and objects into frames and furnish homes with original pieces by a handful of favored artists. Staffers also buy and sell vintage flash cards, puzzle pieces, and letter tiles harvested from a variety of objects.

Owner Todd Mack has worked in framing for 20 years, and he draws on his vast experience when custom mounting a broad spectrum of pieces. Vintage and recycled frames, archival framing, and shadow boxes are a few of the options available. Mack's interest in shadow boxes makes perfect sense to visitors who take a look at his own art, which assembles found photos and objects in forms that aren't always 2-D.

On HGTV's Urban Oasis, interior designer Vern Yip ornamented a luxury apartment with prints gathered from Foursided's expansive collection. In that collection, colorful shelves of letter blocks, maps, corks, baby-doll heads, and harmonicas turn personal, nostalgic objects into stylish new decorations. Candles, jewelry, and books round out the gift selections.
