I had several done at the Hobby Lobby in Lake Jackson across from the Mall. Good job and very reasonable.

I have some friends who own Davis Hardware. They do all my framing and do a very good job. They also do most of the framing for the Houston Livestock and Rodeo. They are located in the Heights and their # is 713-864-4574.

Thanks for the help everyone!

I took it all to Hobby Lobby. I have used them before, and they have the best prices with the 50% off on framing.

About how much does Hobby Lobby charge for say an 18" x 22" print? I have never priced them. Garden Ridge had a 50% off sign and still wanted twice what Regina's charged me...Drew

American Frame

For those of you that prefer e-commerce, www.americanframe.com is a great, inexpensive source for frames. They beat your Hobby Lobbies by 75% or more, depending on what you want. I use them for all my framing needs. You have to do some of the labor yourself, but it's very easy.

The frames that I needed are very large 5'to7' long x 3'to4' tall.

Michaels could not handle anything that large. Garden ridge wanted 450 just for the frame at 50% off.

Hobby Lobby price for frame and plexiglass with acid proof paper was 183. Plus they were 150 cheaper than Michaels on the shadow boxes.
