Q: What can I expect to pay for picture framing?
A: The price for framing varies, depending on, size, and type of materials used. Almost all of the materials used in picture framing vary in price. Here’s a reference: Prices are for do-it-yourself:
If your art measures 16″ by 20″, the starting price for a metal frame, clear glass, and backing, will be $49.95 + tax
The starting price for the same size in a wood picture frame will be $79.95 + tax.
If your art measures 24″ by 36″, the starting price for a metal frame, clear glass,and backing will be $99.95 + tax
The starting price for the same size in a wood picture frame, will be $149.00 + tax.
The type of glass, matting, mounting, and picture framing material used, will all be determining factors in the final price.

Q: Is it worth framing?
A: We find that when most people ask this question, they have something that they want to frame but aren’t sure because it’s not something that has a lot of monetary value, or it’s something that they’ve had a long time and it’s gotten a little beat up. Art is something that you enjoy. If it’s something that you’d like to look at, then we will help you find a great way to display it.
