Preserve your art for future generations and houseguests with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of framing services at Mat About You in historic Ellicott City.
With more than 35 years of experience, the expert framers at Mat About You specialize in multilayered shadowboxes, conservation of sports memorabilia and historical documents, and displays of needlework, quilts, tapestries, and clothing. Tastefully safeguard gratifying diplomas or pizza half-eaten by baseball slugger Mark McGwire with one of the large variety of frame options ($100 on average for 16"x20" custom framing).
