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 assembly charge.

How to Use

The intent is that you pick one frame, one glass, one (or more) mat optional, and appropriate assembly charge. Add them up for the estimate. Size is based on largest length or width which cannot exceed specified dimensions, for example if you are framing a piece which is 10” x 33”, that would be a Large.

  • 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
