Without framing, all paper objects would be considered equal, making cocktail napkins as valuable as the first transatlantic paper airplane. Frame your valuable flatnesses with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of framing at Gallery of Frames.
Gallery of Frames owner Michael Kicz mounts and frames cherished pictures and prized objects with a careful eye for detail. Custom framing prices vary based on size and materials used, but Gallery of Frames can frame nearly anything to suit your needs. The process often begins with a dry mount to adhere a picture to a foam core matting board ($16 for 22"x28"), or shrink wrapping, which laminates the print into a glossy eye-pleaser ($4.50 for 24"x 30"; $6.50 with foam board). The work may then be encased in glass and nestled into a stylish frame to be hung on one's living room wall and admired by houseguests and reformed art thieves ($20 for 16"x20").
An array of frame corners bedecks the gallery in kaleidoscopic colors, textures, and patterns. The diverse peaks show off a decorative bevy of beveled edges in metal and wood, pastels, and bright hues eager to hug customers' prized pictures, mirrors, and first sandwich earned as a starving artist.
Gallery of Frames
When it relocated in 2011 to Grand Rapids from Grand Haven, its home of more than 25 years, Gallery of Frames brought with it a huge selection of conservation materials. Its team of framers encloses artworks and heirlooms with custom-cut combinations of moulding, mat, and glass. Examples of these skillfully designed frames can be found surrounding pictures of athletes at local Brann's locations, or actual athletes if they’ll just sit still for a minute.
