Saying "cheese" is one of the best ways to induce a smile, since the prospect of curdled dairy is one of nature's cruelest jokes. Capture the hilarity with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $125 worth of custom framing at photograph & frame in San Francisco or Palo Alto. Pre-cut and custom mats are also available.
Photograph & frame uses a modular system to bring customers stylish custom framing that's quick and convenient. Frames are pre-built in the Bay Area, come in a variety of sizes (8"x10", 11"x14", 14"x14", 16"x20", 20"x24", 24"x24", 24"x30", and 24"x36" are all available with this Groupon), and are eager to mate with a museum-quality mat. It takes about 14 days to create the perfect fit for odd-sized items, so you can display baseball pennants, panoramas, and larger-than-life silhouettes of the family chinchilla with pride. All work is guaranteed, and expert framers work closely with customers to ensure an ideal line-up the first time around.
White, cream, and black mats cover shamefully naked walls and attract wandering eyes to aesthetically pleasing manifestations of the memory. And since wood and paper rely upon arboreal uprooting, photograph & frame makes concerted efforts to recycle and donates miscut supplies to local schools.

Photograph & Frame
Effectively capturing significant moments on film is a specialized art form, which can go unrecognized if not displayed well. To help their clients showcase their treasured memories in sophisticated arrangements, Photograph & Frame’s staff developed a system they call “modular picture framing.” This system cuts on cost, using a premade selection of framing goods. Clients can mix and match standardized museum-quality mats and frames, which are all-wood and locally made, to create design-magazine-worthy photo wallscapes. The staff also preserves photos with custom-framing options, cutting mats and forming frames to fit especially large family photos and snapshots that spill into the fifth dimension.
They’ve also curated a selection of photographs from local artists and archives to help patrons decorate their homes in sweeping seascapes and bustling city streets. To ensure the photos’ quality and level of detail, most of the images are developed in a darkroom on Fuji Crystal Archive papers.
