If it weren't for restrictive picture frames, the world would be overrun by 16th-century milk maidens, appetizing cornucopias, and hall-of-fame sports jerseys clearly past their prime. Take control of your artifacts with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of framing services at The Frame Factory, with locations on both Webster Avenue and Pulaski Road.
The border buffs at The Frame Factory showcase their mastery of symmetrical shapes by encasing art and memorabilia in artfully resplendent rims. With more than 1,000 wood and metal frames to choose from, creative customers can help design their own trimmings (prices vary based on size and selection), whereas time- or budget-crunched clients can pick from a vast selection of ready-made frames (starting at $85 for a 16"x20" piece of art). An archival package, designed to protect photos and collectible art from the smudgy fingerprints of father time, allows patrons to attractively preserve family portraits (starting at $66 for 8"x10"). Conversely, film buffs can commemorate a favorite fictional family with one of the shop's no-frills poster packages, which includes foam core mounting, a pane of glass, a metal frame, and a full fitting (starting at $60 for a 16"x20" piece of art).
Going beyond the second dimension, The Frame Factory tackles unconventional framing projects such as shadow and acrylic boxes for T-shirts, uniforms, and incarcerated silhouettes. For those looking to bedeck bare walls with prismatic works of creative genius, the Pulaski Road location hosts a framing space lined with ready-to-hang art and mirrors.
