Art collectors protect their pictures the same way that crime bosses discipline their children—by having them framed. Guard your pictures before they take a fall with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a museum-quality frame, up to 16"x20" after finished matting, at Museum Framing in Alexandria (up to a $250 value).
Museum Framing’s owner Rick Badwey uses his 30 plus years of expertise to protect and preserve artwork, and counts framing the 13th Amendment signed by Abraham Lincoln amongst his accomplishments. Museum-quality framing treats all border-worthy items with the utmost care, sandwiching diplomas or baby’s first nail clippings between three bottom layers—100% true archival final backing topped with four-ply museum-grade cotton-rag backing and museum-grade cotton-rag matting—and a top layer of 98% UV-filtering glass. Prints and documents are enclosed within your choice of one of 50 solid-wood frames, including gold, silver, walnut, and mahogany, that foster an eye-pleasing aesthetic and ensures copies of Whistler's Mother won't leave the room unexcused.
