I have a lot of images that I would like to matte and frame. I had been taking them to a local frame shop who would do the matte cutting, foam board cutting, glass cutting and custom cut a simple black metal frame (nielsen frame). It seems that everytime I go there I get a different price, sometimes good, sometimes bad, so I decided to do as much of it as I could myself. I went to a hobby shop and got 32x40" matte board for $5 as well as foamboard same size and price and 16x20" glass for $5. I borrow my father-in-laws matte cutter and I do stain glass as well, so I cut my own glass. Doing it myself, for less than $5 I can matte, foam board, and cut the glass for an 8x10 image. My only dependency on the frame shop now is the Neilsen frame, and they just charged me $130 for 3 frames (just the frame and hardware to join it together - 18x9, 16x14 and 11x8). Does anyone here know where I can order Neilsen frame molding in bulk so that I can say goodbye to the frame shop? I have found it pre-cut at places like dickblick.com but I want like 10 ft pieces so that it's cheaper. Thanks for looking and reading.
