Name Your Own Price for Picture Framing

As anyone who’s visited a frame shop knows, picture framing can be expensive. Framing4Yourself gives you custom tools to modify the type and quantity of contents in your frame job, allowing you to name your own price for picture framing.

When you go to a traditional store front frame shop, you may be shocked at the price. Often that’s because the framer is upselling you to more expensive materials. Sometimes these costly materials are justified. But not always.

One of the benefits of framing for yourself is that you get to choose the materials that fit your budget. For example, Framing4Yourself offers three grades of acrylic, and two grades of foam board, and several grades of mat board. Choosing those that are right for you is a matter of familiarizing yourself with the differences. We can help with that…

By opting for lower cost materials, you can reduce the price of the frame job. And when you leave out one of the materials, like a window mat, your price can be lowered dramatically. That’s because adding a window mat not only adds the cost of the mat, it also makes the frame larger—and larger frames cost more.
