Due to cost and the size of this thing I just went with simple black frame, spacers, uv/ag acryllic. Ordered from Fram Destination and was about $220 I think. Looks nice and clean though.

Thanks for sharing this...looks great and I think I'll do pretty much the same. Japanese hinge?

What's your opinion of the anti-glare acrylic for a piece that size? From the pic it looks pretty good and not as hazy as I have seen in the past.

I love it. The room it is hanging in is pretty small and there is a ceiling fan that is pretty bright that puts a glare on every piece I have in there (As you can see in the top right corner of the acrylic). This was my first time using anti-galre and I love it. Can easily see the print in the room now. It may subdue the colors a tiny bit compared to regular acrylic, but the fact that is takes the glare away I think trumps the tiny clarity loss.

All in all I think it came out great and the thing is a show stopper when you enter the room.

Hey any "blur" effect with the AG acrylic. My framer here in Canada says that using it will distort the image terribly, hence why you have to go museum plexi :evil: :hanging:
