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. Frame your art in fine form with today's Groupon: for $49, you get $125 worth of frames and art at Thompson's Frame Factory. This Groupon is redeemable at the three Birmingham locations in Eastwood, Greystone, and Hoover.
For more than 20 years the framing gurus at Thompson's Frame Factory have offered intricately designed frames for bare-skinned photographs and flat-faced artwork. In addition to increasing the lifespan of poodle portraits with a selection of more than 1,000 ready-made frames ($9.99–$99.99), the store provides picture-less purchasers with a mammoth selection of original oil paintings ($10–$100), framed beveled mirrors ($24.99–$99.99), art prints ($5–$100), and more.
Thompson's Frame Factory
Dedicated to a next-day turnaround for many assignments, Thompson's encases everything from diplomas to completed jigsaw puzzles within the ornate borders of more than 2,000 customizable frames. Guests can also peruse a collection of 300 ready-made frames that will fit snugly around standard-size pictures, or commission custom tabletop frames to showcase unconventionally sized posters. More than 100 framed, beveled mirrors further populate the store, silently reflecting the reversed T-shirt graphics and snarky grins of each shopper's personal doppelgänger. Frames and mirrors are complemented by a collection of original oil paintings, which help homeowners adorn their walls with a colorful still life, a muted landscape, or an unflinchingly honest portrayal of the human condition.
