Before frames, art was held to walls by industrial-strength sticky tack, liberal applications of pomade, and the deployment of very long-armed men. Suspend artwork in style with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $70 toward custom framing at Nielsen Framing Studio and Gallery in Linden Hills. This Groupon is only valid toward the custom framing of one picture.
Nielsen's first-rate framing wizards ensconce fine art, photos, mirrors, and memorable keepsakes in a flurry of fashionable custom casings. Prices vary according to materials and size, but customers can opt for offerings such as an 8”x10” plain black frame with regular glass and 2” matting ($147) or an 11”x14” olive-veneer black frame with regular glass and 2” matting ($327). Nielsen's practiced frameworkers enclose mementos with the care and precision of a silk-gloved surgeon, effortlessly easing pieces into an eye-fetching selection of sleek, stylish quadrangles devoid of garish scimitars, semi-precious gems, or distracting chrome skulls.
