Both a framed work of art and a finicky antique cannon add a lot of personality to a living room at the simple expense of a few holes in the wall. Maximize aesthetics while minimizing structural damage with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get $80 worth of custom-framing supplies and services at The Framing Establishment, with locations in Salt Lake City and South Jordan.
The Framing Establishment's seasoned staff fashions custom-made frames while aiding patrons with an extensive selection of ready-made picture-holders. Hundreds of photo frames and shadow boxes can display invaluable items, including treasured macaroni art, little-league trading cards, or an entire life's savings. More than 200,000 works of pre-framed art ($49–$100 for an 11”x14”)—searchable online or in-store—give walls a purpose besides just holding down the floors. Custom framing presents a choice of matting, glass, mirror, and mounting options ($47+ for a 1" black frame with glass and labor). The Framing Establishment supports its products and services with a product-and-service guarantee rather than the typical pinkie swear.
The Framing Establishment
Entering one of The Framing Establishment's locations is like walking into an art gallery. Large traditional landscapes and contemporary abstracts hang on the walls, and shadow boxes housing portraits and collectibles line the shelves. Amid this modern decor, professional framers scuttle about, sizing objects and answering customers' questions. They help their patrons pick out ready-made frames and art or consult with them to determine flattering custom mouldings and mats for their photos or most impressive parking tickets. They also help customers transform their TVs into works of art by providing frames and fabrics that complement home furnishings.
