Art collectors protect their pictures the same way that crime bosses discipline their children—by having them framed. Guard your pictures before they take a fall with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 toward custom framing at Framing & Art Centre.
Bolstered by thousands of frames and mat samples, the expert framers at Framing & Art Centre craft picture-holders and other picture paraphernalia to each customer's desires. Adept at building four-sided scaffolding for keepsakes such as personalized jerseys ($500+), diplomas and certificates ($100+), and Nobel Prize–winning grocery lists, the shop's staff is virtually unstumpable. Items such as movie posters can also be properly preserved (under $175 for most 24"x36" pieces), and the framespeople can handsomely house smaller items such as family photos and medals as well. The centre also specializes in framing 3-D objects such as model boats, bronzed baby shoes, or the entire Avatar universe. Before addressing their framing needs, patrons can peruse examples and the tips and trends section of the centre's website to get a hold on the ins and outs of frame picking, arranging, and hanging.
