Without framing, all paper objects would be considered equal, making cocktail napkins as valuable as the first transatlantic paper airplane. Elevate the worth of two-dimensional items with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $125 worth of custom framing at Koyman Galleries.
Framing for more than 45 years, Koyman's skilled custom framing team wraps flat valuables such as limited edition prints, photos, diplomas, and memorabilia in high-quality frames. Photo protectors can outfit 8'x10' ($60+), 11"x14" ($95+), and 16"x20" ($110+) family portraits in a basic frame, or guard cherished grass clippings behind an upgraded frame with nonglare glass ($77+). For premium frames ($119+), carefully constructed matting weaves around awards and watercolour paintings as it inflates the outer edge to dimensions up to 22"x26". Expert art consultants stand by at the ready to make suggestions on the best ways to reframe existing artwork damaged from continued use as a frisbee.
After framing their cherished memories, patrons can peruse Koyman's two levels of art-gallery space inside the 30,000-square-foot facility. Gallery visitors meander along walls lined with more than 5,000 original paintings, photographs, and works on paper that come to life and whisper the favourite colours of more than 150 Canadian artists.
