Until their proper display in museums, the paintings of most Renaissance masters languished for centuries on the magnet-flecked fridges of their proud mothers. Preserve your art for future generations and house guests with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of custom framing services at Framagraphic Picture Framing & Gallery on West Broadway.
Framagraphic outlines family relics and cherished artwork in various frames and mounts to transform barren walls into in-home museum spaces. The shop's graceful gallery showcases original artworks and inspires eyes with display ideas and beauty-judging magic mirrors. The astute, experienced framers remove the guesswork from fancifully outlining delicate paintings or heirloom photographs and can determine if a specimen is better adorned by ornate gold leaf or clean metal. Prices are as diverse as each custom piece and vary by frame type, mount, and size (starting at $69), but can include a basic metal border, regular glass, and dry mount ($89–$99). Embellish an ancestor's military decorations or ensconce a master’s degree or pearl diver’s certificate in a two-inch double mat, basic black frame with regular glass ($127). All framing is conducted in-shop rather than in the more common, less material realm of hammerspace.

The staff members at Framagraphic approach every project with the same level of care and attention to detail, whether it's an expensive piece from an esteemed gallery or a treasured crayon doodle from a child. It's been that way since the mid-1970s, when the business custom-sculpted its first frame. Ever since, Framagraphic has continually added on to its list of services, which today includes work with shadow boxes, canvases, and even mirrors. At the shop, galleries of prints and original paintings from local artists immerse visitors in color, and an on-site workshop ensures projects will never have to be outsourced to Santa's elves.
