Pictures propped against walls, crammed in closets, or carried away by picture-thieving magpies can't be beheld. Today’s Groupon increases art visibility: for $40, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Framecraft in downtown Warrenton, Virginia.
Framecraft swaddles art objects in conservation-grade frames inside a homey downtown shop decorated with limited-edition prints and works by featured artists. Frame prices vary depending on the materials chosen, and museum- or archival-quality framing can add $25 or more to any framing project. Proud parents can display diplomas and clown-school-completion certificates with a mat, nonconservation glass, and a basic black frame ($120), and movie-size posters can be enclosed in a basic frame and nonconservation glass ($175). Art lovers can also unite custom moulding ($5–$200/ft.) with a sparkling sheet of glass and an acid-free mat to craft a dapper display for a Quaker Oats label or breakfast-food finger-painting.
