What You'll Get
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 $35, you get $75 worth of framing services at Framed in Hamden.
Framed, which was named runner-up for Best Frame Shop in 2010 by readers of the New Haven Advocate, uses careful custom-framing techniques to produce well-balanced rectangles for all occasions. Overseen by 15-year framing veterans Liz Hellwig and Rocco Compitello, the staff at Framed meets with prospective project doers, ironing out the two-dimensional details for projects large and small. These canvas wranglers practice conservation framing, a technique that keeps pieces true to their original conditions through the use of specialized glass and acid-free mat boards. Likewise, to ensure quality and a pleasant lack of presidential apparitions, all custom projects are constructed on-site in the store's comprehensive workshop. Though framing rates vary from project to project, an average 18"x24" piece—including a black wood frame, standard glass, and dry mounting—starts at approximately $66.
