Both a framed work of art and a finicky antique cannon add a lot of personality to a living room at the simple expense of a few holes in the wall. Maximize aesthetics while minimizing structural damage with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get $110 worth of frames and custom framing at PDR Picture Frames & Gallery.
PDR's expert framers artfully accent and preserve pieces with a wide variety of first-class framing materials acquired from across the globe. Patrons can peruse walls stacked with colourful samples and consult the helpful staff to find the right frame to complement their piece. Those in need of a quality frame without any bells, whistles, or dancing kick lines can choose a poster package and frame anything up to 22"x28" with a charcoal, walnut, honey, or mahogany wood frame enhanced with glass and acid-free foam-core backing ($99). The experienced team can also help sports fans doll up their old college baseball shirt or signed hockey jersey with a jersey cabinet ($295+), and customers looking to exhibit an 8"x10" family portrait can customize a proper scaffolding ($80+; includes 2" matte with glass). Graduates with a degree in dentistry can also preserve their diplomas or charcoal denture rubbings with a document package such as The Doctorate, which includes two classic frame choices, two mattes, glass, and acid-free backing ($129).
