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 houseguests with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of custom framing at The Frame & Art Shop.
For 28 years, The Frame & Art Shop has showcased memories in more than 2,000 elegant frames and preserved them with acid-free matting. Skilled framers can encapsulate complementary works in two 8"x10" frames, pressed behind glass and garnished with intricate scrollwork or a hardwood finish ($100). The Frame & Art Shop's computerized mat cutter accurately snips any desired shape, and the store's conservation glass can preserve 16"x20" pictures, paintings, or smaller picture frames ($100). Posters need not endure thumbtacks and torn corners, thanks to custom 24"x30" frames, expertly dry mounted beneath protective glass ($138).
Frame & Art Shop
"You name it, we frame it," Frame & Art Shop's website states. Whether visitors are seeking a simple black metal frame or a lavish gold museum frame, the store has more than 2,000 picture-frame mouldings in stock. Its inventory also includes hundreds of mats, and the store offers six types of glazing. Cindy Jones Stasiewicz opened the shop in 1983, but moved it to its current location in 1997. This location features a large custom framing room next to the gallery, which allows Frame & Art Shop's staff to do all of its work onsite, ensuring each piece remains protected.
