Without framing, all paper objects would be considered equal, making cocktail napkins as valuable as the first transatlantic paper airplane. Protect the value of your valuables with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $55 worth of frames, mirrors, and art at Frame Central, with locations in Wallingford and Capitol Hill.
Frame Central's staff encases cherished photos, artwork, and three-dimensional objects in a variety of frames with precut mats. Pictures can nestle under precut mats ($7+) for a more striking display, and ready-made frames ($10+) clasp snapshots in a wood-and-glass embrace, protecting them from wrinkles, stains, and the scratchy nuzzles of sentimental lumberjacks. Lackluster walls can find colorful companionship in preframed artwork and a vehicle for deep self-reflection in mirrors ($50+). Customers can ensconce valuables in custom framing packages ($59.99+), which can accommodate sports memorabilia or preserve fine art with archival mats and backing boards, ready in one day for pickup and backed by a satisfaction guarantee.
