What You'll Get
A picture is worth a thousand words, unless it's unframed, in which case it is worthless to everyone, especially cuddly babies. Save fragile youths from the hazardous corners of unframed photographs with today's deal: for $40, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Ki Gifts and Custom Framing on 14th Street downtown.
Walls garnished with thought-provoking masterpieces make living rooms into museums with couches where friends and family love to lounge. Ki Gifts and Custom Framing has acted as a secondary curator to museums with couches all over the city by offering always-friendly and knowledgeable art advice. The charming shop's custom-framing services take the guesswork out of border binding your beautiful prints, paintings, and more. Digitally overlay frames and mats onto your masterpiece through Wizard's Integrated Framer software, which allows you to see the final product before its analog conception. Although pricing varies based on quality of frame, mat, and glass, complete pieces start at around $60 for 11"x14" and $160 for 24"x36".
Since opening his store in 2006, resident framing expert and owner Keith Hummel has masterfully framed photos, paintings, jerseys, and the occasional narwhal tusk for aesthetically pleased customers. Armed with a background in Aikido, Keith emanates his ki—or "life energy"—throughout his calming store, leaving frameless foragers peaceful throughout their pursuit of beauteous bordering.
