Materials all from Frame Destination except for the Museum glass which is from Hobby Lobby.


Nice, how much did the Museum glass cost you? Looks great btw

Crazy how the print jumps out with this glass, just wish it wasn't so dam expensive

Have a mirror'd frame which makes it difficult to photograph without a crappy glare, but looks great with the foil. I know it's not as nice as many of the others here, but I really like it.

I wish I had more cash to frame more print with Museum glass, it really makes a print look great

I upload most of my prints to a facebook album, then just grab the image link from there.

Aside from, sometimes ill use 'imageshack'. No sign up needed etc.

attackonthebass, that Emek looks stunning!

Don't worry about the glass, you can swap it out later. What matters is it's on the wall :clap:

Cheers man, it took me about two hours all together, I'm really pleased with it. The frame is English Oak, I was originally going to paint it black, but when I was putting it all together the bare wood looked great, so decided to just darken it slightly with a stain

I think that the glass was about 100 bucks after the 40% coupon. It's a big upfront investment but totally worth it. Since I rotate out prints every 8-9 months I figured it was the way to go as long as I don't break it. :)

I remember telling myself in March that I'd frame it as soon as possible, but then I decided that I didn't want to rush anything. I wanted to give what's probably my favorite Mondo print the frame it deserves.

I think the wait was worth it.
