Until their proper display in museums, the paintings of most Renaissance masters languished for centuries on the magnet-flecked fridges of their proud mothers. Preserve your art for future generations and houseguests with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of custom framing and more at Mission Trace Framing & Gallery, in Lakewood.
Mission Trace preserves beloved artwork and memorabilia in custom frames and specialty handmade shadowboxes. Patrons can select from dozens of frames and mats to design attractive borders for photos, paintings, or posters of any size (an average order costs between $120 and $130, and varies depending on size and materials). Those in search of more multidimensional décor can employ the shop's skilled designers to construct a mini trove of photos, heirloom trinkets, prehistoric pog collections, or prized pencil erasers in a shadowbox. Meanwhile, Mission Trace's gallery showcases and sells the works of many local artists. Founders Sharon Saville and Karen Irving guarantee that every job meets the highest quality standard, unlike fly-by-night framers that use only shatter-prone popsicle sticks and macaroni to fence in masterpieces.
