framed and printed. Flickr's partnered up with
and they seem to offer pretty good deals...
...as framing seems to be universally ridiculous.
Here's the pricing breakdown for the options I selected:
Finished size: 33.3" x 25.3"
Print on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308: 24.0" x 16.0" $31.99
Frame: Gallery Black, 1.63" width, ID: 601 $42.85
Top Mat: Matte White, ID: 1058, Width: 2.5", conservation $17.08
Middle Mat: Jet Black, ID: 1001, conservation $17.08
Bottom Mat: Matte White, ID: 1058, conservation $17.08
Glazing: Non-glare Acrylic, ID: 5 $44.80
Fitting and assembly $21.08
My Total: $191.96
So I'm looking at about $205 out the door, once it's shipped.
The other places I've looked at briefly don't have as nice of tools and seem to charge even more... I'm not really looking to roll my own, so is this about as good as I'll find?
Also, is there anything else I should consider with this? I'm alternating Matte White, Jet Black, Matte White for a three-matte option, because I think they're neutral and draw the eye to the piece, but criticism is welcome.
Also, I touched this up from this original
... I really liked the potential the photo had, but thought it needed to pop a bit more. Thoughts?
