Framing can be very expensive, so what does one do if they want to display many photographs at the home or office without breaking the bank?
When I was working for a small yellow box company in western New York*, my boss pointed me to :
1600 Ridge Road West
Rochester, NY 14615
The manager is John 585 865 4120
I ship off a box of photographs to him and he sends it to Plak-it [www.plak-it.com]. Plak-it mounts the photograph on wood and covers it with a filter. Then they cut slots for hanging and send it back to Frameworks. Frameworks then calls me and tells me the cost with shipping and I give them the credit card number.
Why when I live in Los Angeles would I send the photos to someone in Rochester New York rather than have it done locally? you ask. If I have it done in Los Angeles the frame stores charge $55 to $65 for a 12"x18" photograph plus tax. If I send it to Frameworks it costs $15 to 20 per photograph plus shipping and no tax. So I do it partly to save money and partly for loyality for the good service and help that they gave me.
