Give a Present—not a Project

Give a Present, Not a Project with Simply Framed

Illustration by Hannah P. Mode

Art is a wonderful gift to give during the holidays, unless it’s unframed.

You’ve been there—a custom dog portrait, a special photograph, or a painting from your favorite local artist is presented to you in a tube with a big red bow. You get excited, give a hug, and then...the holidays are over. Time, energy, and money is sparse, and your much-loved art winds up spending months (sometimes years!) unprotected, gathering dust on a shelf.

This year, give your loved one a present—artwork that is framed and ready for hanging—not a project to add to their to-do list. Let us help. Our mail-in custom framing service takes the hassle out of framing—and the general pre-holiday hysteria—by allowing you to simply ship us the art you want framed. It works one of two ways:

1. Place your frame order and then ship us your art in either a mailer or a tube, both of which we mail to you (seriously, you never even have to leave your house). If you're art is large, we will email you a printable Fedex return label to place on the package.

2. If you're planning to order your gift online, have it shipped directly to us! Enter "Simply Framed Attn: Holiday 7425 NW 79th St. Medley, FL 33166" as the shipping address. Then place your order and in the comments list your order number and where you bought your art.

As always, once we have your art in hand, we'll notify you, frame it to your specifications, and then ship it back to you—or to the lucky person who will be opening your gift on Christmas morning—wrapped in good old-fashioned kraft paper and a personalized holiday tag.

Won’t it be expensive? No, actually, at least not compared with the custom frames you’ve purchased in the past. Our frame mouldings are some of the highest quality on the market, but our prices are 50% less than what you’ve been paying at your local frame shop. Each frame is custom built to fit the art that goes inside, and it’s made by hand right here in the USA.

If you’re interested in giving a beautifully framed work of art to someone this year, time is of the essence. In order to guarantee delivery to you or your loved ones before Christmas, we must receive your art by December 4th. That’s exactly one month from today. Plenty of time to build some beautiful frames. Go ahead and get started.

Happy (early) Holidays!
