Without framing, all paper objects would be considered equal, making cocktail napkins as valuable as the first transatlantic paper airplane. Enshrine important slices of tree with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of custom framing at Quality Frames & Art.
The experienced framing designers at Quality Frames & Art help artwork, photos, and memorabilia find sanctuary in custom-created frames. Metal poster frames ($49.95, up to 24”x36") protect favorite movie posters from ongoing criticisms and tomatoes launched by cheated Academy Award runners-up. Surround a family portrait or college diploma in a hand-carved, genuine 23-karat gold frame (most are $100+/foot), or keep handsome reflections locked in borders made to fit exact mirror measurements. Quality Frames & Art's framing-smiths also encase 3-D objects, so you can showcase guitars, air guitars, and medals won from air-guitar competitions without scratch- or scuff-induced anxiety. Pricing is based on the size and style of the frame; the average job is estimated at about $325.
Though Quality Frames & Art's website offers $40 off your next frame job, today's Groupon gets you $100 toward the next framing, making this the better deal.
Quality Frames & Art
At Quality Frames & Art, meticulous staff members gingerly unfurl customers' art before smoothing it into place inside a custom-made frame or eco-friendly molding from Larson-Juhl. Interior-design power teams of mats and frames transform posters into easy-to-hang art, and sleek modern or decadent baroque molding convinces mirrors to gleam brighter than a comet after a dental appointment. The team can preserve memories by encasing jewelry, instruments, and other collectibles in striking shadowboxes for vintage flair. In addition to matting and mounting photos, staff members can repair clients' damaged frames and cracked glass. For patrons robing their walls from scratch, the shop also stocks paintings by more than a dozen local artists, including landscapes, portraits, and still-life scenes.
