It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, and through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Today's deal frames and supplies your art in fine form. For $39, you get a custom framing for any piece up to 24" x 36" at photograph & frame (a $150 value). This deal is redeemable at the locations in San Francisco and Palo Alto.
Bring in your favorite photo, poster, or artwork to be professionally framed in an all-wood, gallery-quality frame—like zebras, the frames come in black, white, and stainless steel. Each custom corner covering includes the frame, front glass, backing, and all necessary labor. Photograph & frame’s staff of image-sheathers has harnessed right angles and straight lines through a series of standardized mats and frames, with the mats and frames interchangeable based upon clients’ preferences. Most of these frames are pre-built, allowing for quick assembly, without the risk of pictures scampering off when a staff member’s back is turned.
Displaying an exquisite photograph or painting without a decent frame is like breakdancing without pants on—the art is lost to the awfulness of the display. Diego Velázquez's complex and enigmatic Las Meninas went unnoticed for centuries because its frame was tastelessly adorned with scimitars, semi-precious gems, and a chrome skull that fired lasers from its eyes at anyone who got too close.

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.
