Much like a butterfly collection or a loose transdimensional tesseract, a family portrait is best kept secured behind a protective pane of glass. Entrap a memory with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $200 worth of framing services at The Art Gallery at the Washington Design Center.
The Art Gallery at the Washington Design Center hosts a staff of framers with a minimum of 20 years of experience crafting professional, museum-quality frames. Entrap fidgety photos beneath transparent glass (8"x10" starting at $9), choosing from a spectrum of mat boards ($15+) and sculpted molding ($21+/foot). Handcrafted frames, mirrors, and glass add character to the perimeters of family photos and child-drawn pet portraits, and eco-friendly frames and mats take the art of hanging art beyond such jejune measures as tacky industrial-strength sticky tack, staple-tape taple staping, and hiring long-armed men to hold your art against the wall.
The Art Gallery's coterie of framing mavens also encases sports jerseys in permanence and austerity, and mounts three-dimensional pieces within shadow boxes. And archival-quality framing for precious documents preserves everything from diplomas to parking tickets to provide decades of nostalgia. The Art Gallery at the Washington Design Center backs each of its framing jobs with a lifetime guarantee and proffers pick-up and delivery services upon request.
