It's Not a Gold Record, But I Wanna Treat It Like One

FramingFilter: How can I frame autographed CDs and liner notes without overpaying?

My own research has turned up a bunch of online vendors (like this one), but those options are too expensive. Do you know of a place I can get a frame and mat for less than $25 per unit? My neighborhood hobby shop sells frames for cheap, but I haven't seen that size in my most recent trip there a few months ago.

I live in the Philly 'burbs, for what it's worth, and I'm not sure I have the skills to go the DIY route.

Go to The Darkroom Studios in Merchantville, NJ. They have a decent framing shop there and should be able to whip up something there for cheap. I am a total klutz, and I framed 4 11x14 prints in 16x20 frames with archival backing board and matting for under $50. The owner there is awesome, and I'm sure he'd appreciate your business. They do good work, or they help you do it yourself. Make sure you call in advance so he can take care of you right when you get there.

I'd suggest the other framing places around Philly, but they're just overpriced for what you need.

In case I didn't make it clear, he can cut frames, glass, backing board, and matting to size there.
