It is through art and art only that we can realize our perfection, through frames and frames only that we can shield our art from the sordid perils of actual existence. Display art in fine form with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get $110 worth of custom framing at The Studio Shop in Burlingame or The Studio Shop Annex in San Mateo. This Groupon is valid only for custom-framing services.
Since 1915, The Studio Shop has preserved pictures, art, and objects inside fashionable frameworks. An extensive inventory of thousands of frames gives customers the choice of outlining their photos with welded steel, hand-tooled leather, or bamboo, as well as moulding styles from periods ranging from Louis XIII to art deco. Acid-free mats and backing boards and high-quality glazing materials (either glass or acrylic) keep artwork, photography, and heirlooms safe from UV rays, moisture, and unexpected Midas touches. Safely enclose a standard diploma indicating graduation from Harvard's School of Juggling (starting at $52), shelter a 24" x 36" movie poster (starting at $50), or beautifully immortalize an 8" x 10" photo of yourself discovering the secret of immortality (starting at $40). Appointments are recommended.
