It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, and it's through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Today's Groupon frames and supplies your art in fine form: for $40, you get $100 worth of custom framing, installations, canvas stretching, and more at The Frame House in Arcadia.
At The Frame House, design professionals tailor custom frames and shadowboxes to suit the tastes and surroundings of discriminating decorators. Painting possessors and particularly judgmental walls will enjoy the efforts of the store's skilled team of frame facilitators, who listen closely to customer requests before launching each project, such as fitting 10"x12" custom blackwood frames, mat, and glass ($77) around oils on canvas or chalk scrawls excavated from the sidewalk.
The store will outfit shivering paintings with similar 8"x10" ($60) or 12"x17" ($98.60) wood shawls or house vintage photos in a 16"x21" frame with an acid-free mat, UV-filtering conservation glass, and a 1"x3" placard ($178). Little leaguers can shelter their glory-soaked jerseys from the ravages of sardonic Springsteen songs in a 22"x24" box, which holds a child's jersey and photo and is hewn from blackwood, conservation glass, and an acid-free mat ($150). The Frame House stretches canvases at prices ranging from $25 for 24"x24" jobs to $144 for 96"x96" fame-ups, and it also specializes in the restoration of oil and acrylic artwork (starting at $75).
For a glimpse into the store's framing finesse, prospective patrons can scrutinize a store showcase of finely-wrought past projects. Installation costs start at $75, but the service is free if you purchase more than $200 worth of services ($100 in addition to your Groupon's value).
This Groupon can't be used to buy ready-made frames, even if their plaintive songs compel you to.
