$39 for $100 Worth of Custom Framing
Custom framing prices vary widely depending on the materials used and the scope of the project, but regular glass pairs with single matting in an 8”x10” frame for $25–$200 or in a 16”x20” frame for $50–$400, and framing usually costs $100–$150.
The Frame Shoppe
For more than 30 years, the staff at The Frame Shoppe has transformed photos, paintings, and jerseys into elegant keepsakes with complementary matting, nonglare or UV–protective glass, and frames. The professionals help clients to choose the perfect style of edging from dozens of options, pairing modern, sleek metals with diplomas and rustic barnwood molding with paintings by pet cows. After deciding between funky or elegant, sparse or baroque, clients browse matting selections that include suede and textured options. Although complete custom-framing projects generally have a 10-day turnaround, a computerized Wizard Mat Cutter enables the framers to cut edgings into shape while customers wait.
