Great for odd or custom size prints

I recently wanted to print an extra large size print for my kitchen but framing for large prints is SO expensive - I'm talking in the $600+ range. I didn't want to spend that much, so I scoured the internet and found Frame It Easy.

What I loved about Frame It Easy, was that I was able to completely customize my frame from the size to color and they even offer non-glare acrylic, which I highly recommend getting. It wasn't too much more and it makes the print look high end.

You can also add a mat on smaller sizes at an additional cost.

I ordered the largest size before shipping jumped from $40 to $240. 

The cost with printing my own image in size 50x33, the frame, and shipping was only $254. If you just order the frame, it is cheaper.

Great for odd or custom size prints with tons of framing options

I've ordered from Framebridge several times and the quality is exceptional! I love how affordable the frames are and how many frame types and colors they have.

With Framebridge, you either mail them your print with a shipping label that is included in the frame price or you upload a digital image.

You can add a mat to the frame up to size 20x30. Larger frames cannot have a mat. Once the image is received by Framebridge, you'll receive your framed art within about 5-7 business days.

Non Glare Acrylic for Common Size Frames

Home Depot sells non glare acrylic in several common sizes to fit right into your frame at an affordable price. This is a great option when you find a low price frame at a local craft store but want your frame and art to look more high end without spending as much on custom framing. As I mentioned before, the non glare finish really makes the art pop and I swear by it!

Custom cut acrylic for non standard size frames

For the less common frame sizes, Frame Destination based out of Dallas, Texas, offers custom cut non glare acrylic. While the custom sizes are more expensive, it's still a very affordable non glare acrylic option. 

If you're local to Dallas, they offer free pickup.

I'm always on the lookout for beautiful frames at affordable prices so if you see something you think I'd like let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by and happy framing!
