Custom Framing Price List (Work in Progress)

This is a draft of my price list for custom framing. It is a work in progress and feedback welcome.

An example pricing for a small piece, using recovered wood frame and glass (no resizing), single one opening mat would be $18, medium $34, and large $53. Costing is composed of a frame, glass, mat board and finishing.

  • Currently not doing clothing like jerseys
  • Many options have upgrades available for additional charge, new frames can be significantly more based on selection
  • Mat board, backing and all mounting corners / adhesive that come in contact with artwork are archival / acid-free / buffered unless stated otherwise
  • I do have some new sheets of acrylic / plexiglass in various sizes and thicknesses. Not my preference as they scratch easily, but available at a very low cost
  • Some costs may be reduced or free if sourced at a lower cost and savings passed on
  • Largest matted frame size supported at present is 32” x 40”
  • Prices are for estimating, final cost provided prior to work commit but should be close
  • Just need glass cut? $5 and will include the glass (recovered) if needed up to 30” X 40”, but you come to me…cut while you wait. For that matter, I’ll cut your mat also if needed
