If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a frame is the leather-bound book preventing those words from causing a ruckus in the library. Ensure that your most precious memories aren't shushed away by authorities with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Frame Nation in the River District.

With the help of Frame Nation's matting and mounting experts, customers can give museum-style treatment to nearly any object they desire. The shop is led by Master Certified picture framer Mary Fender, who invites framing challenges with the bravery of a cheetah staring down a flock of marshmallow Peeps. Bring in your encasement-craving collectables to consult with a team member about color and style options. The store is chockfull of contemporary and classic framing materials to accommodate projects of every size and variety, whether you seek to display something two-dimensional such as a painting, diploma, newspaper article, or autographed picture, or a three-dimensional object such as a jersey, vintage iPod, or petrified slug. EcoCare molding, which is made from wood harvested from responsibly managed forests, offers clients an opportunity to establish a nice rapport with Mother Nature, preventing awkward small talk during family picnics. Prices vary depending on the project, but on average, custom framing costs around $175.

Good for custom framing only.

Reviews

Frame Nation's founder, Mary Fender, has been featured on the covers of Decor magazine and For Members Only. Richmond.com also featured the fast-rising frame store, and more than 325 Facebookers are fans:

  • Despite the challenging economic climate across the nation, Frame Nation is holding its own – Gabriel Kiley, Decor
  • Though the art in a frame is normally supposed to be the main focus and purpose of a frame, Fender's renewed style tends to blend that focus. – Kent Jennings Brockwell, Richmond.com

Frame Nation

A Guild Commended Framer, Frame Nation employs certified framers who match existing frames and create special projects from scratch. Behind the shop's brick storefront, staffers help customers to make selections from more than 2,000 frame samples, including acrylic, steel-welded, and wood options. Combined with glass, museum-quality practices, and a tiny flux capacitor, these protective casings preserve everything from diplomas to wedding photos.

To find inspiration for their own creations, visitors need only view the artwork lining the walls. Frame Nation regularly displays the handiwork of local artists; one ever-present exhibit includes a collection of frames and three-dimensional collages crafted from recycled materials.
