Simple, but I think they came out pretty good. Sorry for any blurry pics

Jay you deserve better than this but for a grand total of about 48 dollars it is all I can afford to get it up on the wall right now.

Looks good to me, kevron. Even better because it was done for under $50.

What's your secret on getting the materials so inexpensively?

Premade frames from Hobby Lobby 22x28 (about 20 dollars) I buy that size for a 20x26 print. A local framer cuts me acid free mats for ten dollars a piece and acid free foam board for about 5 dollars. I only frame prints that are 20x26 or 18x24 myself, the other sizes just do not work as well with premade frames, at least not for me.

That's awesome. I picked up a couple of the premade frames from Michaels on sale for $20 a piece (22 x 28 ) and after I put a print in the frame I realized how absolutely butt-ugly the frames were and how poorly they were made.

Your frame looks pretty solid and well painted. Detroit needs a Hobby Lobby. Closest one is is about 90 minutes away.

I would not call the frames at Hobby Lobby well made by any means but it serves the purpose of getting a print up on the wall for cheap, which means I can buy more posters.

I think that looks great - esp for less than 50 bones.
