Black Friday? Nope. Black November? Yep! This sale lasts all month.
Framed Art on SaleHere, at Flax Art & Frame, we believe that having to wait until Black Friday to buy a big screen TV is fine. Picture framing, on the other hand, takes time, consultation, creativity and a bit of forethought. We wanted to give you plenty of time, this November, to get your home in order for the holidays. So, rather than do what all other retailers do (forcing you to battle all the other shoppers on one day of the year), we decided to expand our time frame for doing this as well as give you a bunch more options this time around.

Here's the deals:
(1) Every framed item hanging on the walls of our frame shop is on sale for 20-40% off the sticker price. We have a lot of framed prints, posters and limited edition items that are framed to show off our superb design skills. Any one of them would look great on the walls of your home or office.

(2) All unframed posters and prints, in the racks by the front of the store, are on sale for 10 to 30% off. Each print holder will have a discount sticker on it to let you know how much you will save. We have tons of vintage Chicago maps, as well as art prints and vintage, 19th century original clippings from such publications as Harper's weekly, Leslie's and others.

(3) Save 20% on all ready-made frames from MCS, Framatic, Nielsen and Lawrence. If you are a crafts person or artist, here is your chance to save money while framing it yourself. (Note: "Orphan" frames are not part of this sale. They are already marked way, way down and are sold "as is").

(4) Bring in any framed item and ask us to switch out the glass for Museum Glass and all we will charge you for is the Museum Glass. All labor to do this is free! Museum glass filters out 99% of harmful u/v light to prevent fading AND is anti-reflective, so it is nearly invisible. It is the best glass you can get. This offer also applies to Optium Museum Acrylic, which is recommended on larger framed items (32 x 40 and up). It only weighs half as much as glass, is completely clear and nearly invisible, with no static charge like regular plexi, a scuff resistant coating and is shatter resistant.

(5) BIG SAVINGS ON ANY NEW CUSTOM FRAMING PROJECT:
--SAVE 10% ONE CUSTOM FRAMED ITEM.
--SAVE 15% ON TWO CUSTOM FRAMED ITEMS.
--SAVE 20% ON 3 OR MORE CUSTOM FRAMED ITEMS.
The Fine Print:  Custom framing means we build a new frame, no ready-mades. No other promotion can be combined with this offer.


AND FOR ALL THE ABOVE OFFERS:  SAVE 3% OFF THE TOTAL IF YOU PAY IN CASH.
It costs us 3% to take a credit card and, frankly, we would rather give you the 3% than the credit card processor.

PLEASE BE PREPARED TO LEAVE A 50% DEPOSIT WITH YOUR ORDER. IF YOU PLAN TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANY OF THE OFFERS, INCLUDING THIS ONE, BE PREPARED TO MAKE YOUR DEPOSIT IN CASH TOO.

Stop in Monday-Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM, Saturdays 10-5 (closed Sundays) at 220 S. Wabash Avenue in Chicago. We are located one block from The Art Institute of Chicago, between Adams and Jackson on Wabash, middle of the block. Ask for a parking discount coupon if you wish to park in the 12 story lot on the southwest corner of Ada
