I had this framed, and hate it. Suggestions for getting it redone? The florescent pink and blue are incredibly hard to match up with a mat.

I would keep it simple and go black mat black frame for this one. There's a lot going on in the print so colored mats and a fancy frame could be over-the-top. Black will contrast nicely with the sharp colors and really make the poster pop.

Although if you have the funds, you can't go wrong by sending it to further frames. Everything that comes out of there is masterful.

Sorry for your loss.

I kid- with two or three mats I would maybe try to either match or reverse the colors of the "frame" edge around the figures in the print. Frame would match or compliment either the innermost of the two mats or center of three...or something. Looks like a fun job for Corey.
Similar colorway here:

For Desch. My set up eliminates all the reflection and doesn't do the purple foil any justice. I'll try and get a more natural pic when i have a moment.

I set up a frame shop in my garage and here's 2 I framed for myself.
The spoon handbill has a mahogany frame which looks great but the photo makes it look more black.
