I have a new Goonies print coming in (24x36) and was looking to buy from Frame Destination. Was just looking for a standard frame with backing/uv glass. Does anyone have any experience ordering from them/quality of frames?

Awesome thank you!

Do you recommend ordering spacers with the frames too? Also do you need to order anything for the frames to attach the print to the backing?

and I would say yes on spacers if you're not ordering a matte; definitely yes on photo-corners or some sort of fastener.

If you're not using a mat, I don't use anything to attach to backing. For mounting to a mat, I like the strips: https://www.framedestination.com/framin ... trips.html

Everyone's all about spacers, but I don't worry about them for cheaper stuff. When you're buying the frame, it'll ask about "fit contents ordered" for the points (the little bendable metal tabs on the back that hold everything in the frame), and just leave a note somewhere that you want to fit the spacers in, too. Or you can do the math yourself.

Also, I don't think they sell glass that large. I use UV acrylic on all my stuff from them, large or small. It's thick and high quality, but very light and you don't have to worry about breakage. Get a special cleaner, though.

Awesome thank you! I called them and they were incredibly nice and helpful. Just placed my order!
