In the business of garbing walls and eternalizing memories since 1988, Frame 2000 and Frames Galore boast a wide range of services and walls coated in creative frames, mattes, glass, and more. Whether they're shadowboxing a banana, needle-working a design of a banana, or adding an Andy Warhol effect to a photo of someone holding a banana, the resident framing enthusiasts operate in a timely and surgically precise fashion. Framing rates vary greatly depending on materials and sizing; however, framed paintings, drawings, certificates, and diplomas with black wood frames, matting, and glass cost about $100. A 24"x36" limited-edition print, poster, or photograph cost about $79, and for about $89, customers can get a 27"x40" movie-size poster with metal frame, drymount, and glass ready to hang. Patrons can also wrap museum-quality artwork in black wood 2-inch frames, an acid-free matting and border, and UV-protective plexiglass that costs about $300.
Today’s deal also gets snapshooters large format prints of art and photographs, providing parents with 100-year fade-proof proof of vacations, newborns, graduations, and clouds shaped like Abe Lincoln. Preserve a 16"x20" artist canvas, stretched on a 3/4"x3/4" bar ($100), or adorn walls with 20"x30" matte prints in a basic frame ($100). Scanning is also available, at an extra cost. Beyond custom services, both framing locations host many locally inspired art pieces. Generated by visionary Venice Beach artists and photographers, the collection manages to capture the coast without trapping any whale sharks in the net of imaginative realism. With imagery ranging from landscapes to lifestyle portraits, the pieces are available as giclée prints, starting as low as $45 each.
Though Frame 2000 and Frames Galore sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
