Lots of gems in this thread but somehow the fact that he specified picture frames brought me the most joy.

To the OP, there is a link to 32"x40" sheets of ragmat mat board for less than $20 each. Mat board (even the museum cottom rag) is not that expensive. Double mats for < $40.

I blame bots. Bought all the quality frames for cheap, now flipping them to #trufanz. I was right there when they were released, too! Spent all day waiting. Then, bam, sold out in 2 seconds. Just look at those eBay prices. I think Mondo's in on it, personally.

When are they going to address this??? I went to the site RIGHT AFTER THE TWEET and they were sold out of frames!!! Like, that's not humanly possible!! I know I'm not that slow. These frame drops get me so triggered, now I have to pay 4X the price to a frame flipper.

My 6 yr old son is in the emergency room with appendicitis and all he wanted to feel better was a frame. Scored on the print but all the frames sold out to effing flippers in like 5 seconds.
