Looking for cheapest place to buy metal frames parts for 22 x 34 poster
March 30, 2013 8:32 PM   Subscribe

I plan to go to Lowes or Home Depot and get the backing and plexi but want sturdy metal parts to make a very basic black 22 x 34 frame. The stores have the dimensions but the quality is so utterly crappy I want to get something sturdy. Many of my posters have the 22 x 34 dimensions but am going for cheapest online site that is dependable and then will build from the parts myself. I had found a site years ago but no longer can find it anymore. (Tried IKEA as they at least look a bit nicer but no luck on that dimension.)

You can order metal frame sections from Dick Blick, that go together easily and look quite nice.

I use Metropolitan Frames.

Michael’s has some decent frames for cheap. They also have crap, you have to look at them.

Response by poster: Was @ Michael's...the 22 x 34 was crap and frame kits non-existent for the dimensions sadly. Other nice frames though :)

Try American Frame - you can get Nielsen section frames from them at a reasonable price.

Any of the big chain art supply stores will have framing supplies.
