Most Micheal’s craft stores has a frame shop in the back.

Same with Aaron Brothers.

You probably already know this, but be prepared for sticker shock, the frame for a picture can easily be twice the cost of the picture itself, or more.

Oh I know, I have photo of my Grandfather in his Company of 101st Airborne Division that I had framed many years ago and it cost me almost 300$ but it has a great deal of value to me personally.

Try Michaels, Joanns, or Hobby Lobby. They supposedly will accept competitors coupons.

Quote:
JoAnn's will take coupons from Michaels, Hancock Fabrics, and Hobby Lobby. They also let you use more than coupon per purchase. So if you have a 40% off any one regular-priced item coupon from Michaels, Hancock, and Hobby Lobby, you can use all three if you are buying at least three items. The one major exclusion is that JoAnn will not accept a competitor's coupon good for an item they don't carry. For example, you can't use a Michaels coupon when buying fabric at JoAnn's since Michaels doesn't sell fabric.

Michaels will happily accept competitor coupons from the following retailers: AC Moore, JoAnn Fabric and Crafts, Ben Franklin, and Hobby Lobby. The cool thing about Michaels is they'll let you use more than one coupon per transaction. So for example, if you have a Joann coupon good for 40% off any one item, you can use it with a Michaels printable coupon good for 25% off your entire purchase. Keep in mind that the item you got for 40% off will be not be eligible for the 25% discount as well.


I’ve used Artist’s Edge in Silverdale for custom work, it was ~$400 for three oversized prints. Probably isn’t worth the drive for you, but they do quality work.

You could also take some measurements of the photos/prints, and order frames and matting from an online shop, and then assemble at home. It can be a hassle depending on the quality of materials used (archival vs non-, glass, wood, matting, backing, etc).

My other recommendation would be to look for off-the-shelf frames from a box store, and cut matting yourself or order online. The store may be able to help you, too.

If you’re framing something you really care about, make sure they mount it in the frame correctly. I’ve used Japanese paper hinges to float the artwork to avoid damage, in case I decide to sell it later.

Michaels is expensive but they do a great job. Check for coupons online first.

Not being funny...but consider doing it yourself...

The mattng is the challenging part...multi-layer, etc., ...

But an exacto knife, some blades, matts, & a frame, and you're rockin'....some online tutorials....

Just a thought :thumbsup2:
