Without proper preservation, paintings would tarnish from dust, oily fingerprints, and blobs of mustard chasing Washington across the Delaware. Keep pictures pristine with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $200 worth of framing at The Framing Studio. This Groupon is valid at the location in Washington, DC, and the Art Plus Frame store in Fairfax, Virginia.
The Framing Studio immortalizes original artwork, family photos, and odd-shaped items with custom framing and mounting services. Using acid-free mats and fabric, along with computerized mat-design systems, The Framing Studio's canvas curators can simultaneously preserve pictures while enhancing their outward appearance. Prices vary depending on the cost of all custom materials and labor, but frames cost $16–$200 per foot and can be outfitted with a variety of glass options. A 7"x5" double-mat clear-glass mounting can safely cradle priceless photos ($120), and an 8"x10" conservation-glass frame can protect diplomas from UV rays ($210). The Framing Studio strives to complete artistic ensconcements within two weeks of receiving a project and also provides clients with complimentary design and price quotes that reveal the ideal glass and mat options for displaying children's artwork or keeping Dorian Grays at bay.
Though The Framing Studio and Art Plus Frame sometimes feature a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
