Custom Framing

I really believe that custom frames are the biggest rip off out there.

If you have ever paid to get something custom framed, you know the cost is ridiculous. Stores across the board charge hundreds of dollars for framing - and that is after the common "50% off discount".

Here are my custom framing tips-

1) Don't. Instead buy a pre-made frame and purchase a custom mat that will allow your painting, diploma, etc, to fit snuggly in the frame. If you go to a place like Michael's, remember to bring a 40%-off-any-product coupon from your Sunday paper.

2) If you don't want a mat and still want a custom frame, try buying it online and doing the assembly yourself. You can save big bucks.
