Both a framed work of art and a finicky antique cannon add a lot of personality to a living room at the simple expense of a few holes in the wall. Maximize aesthetics while minimizing structural damage with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Frame Factory, valid at two Chicago locations.
For almost 40 years, Frame Factory's knowledgeable craftsmen have helped enshroud art and memories in customized archival, specialty, and basic frames. A gallery showcases myriad custom-frame options, such as an archival-framing package, which includes an 8"x10" black frame, white mat, foam-core backing, and a full fitting that helps to preserve its contents. An 8"x10" mirror-frame package with a full fitting and frame reflects visages more accurately than a puddle of melted mercury. Custom framing services start at less than $100, but may cost more depending on the job.
