Well I figured out I would start out Framed Stuff Part 3 there are links to the original thread and Framed Stuff Part 2 below. Here are a few that I framed up for cheap about 115 dollars for all three. I know they are not near as fancy as most on here but they work for me:

20 dollar frame from hobby lobby 15 dollars for mats and backing board from a framer that I have become friends with he hooks me up and cuts my mats for basically nothing he said he thinks all of the silkscreens are interesting. He is about 65 years old and one of the coolest dudes I have met. He gives me free sleeves and stuff all the time.

Nice job. I need to find some deals on frames like that. It would be nice to get some more up on walls and out of flat files.

My first framed posters. The blue Eddie Vedder has still dust on it - I just got it and did not have time to put in on the wall yet. It had some minor ceases(that must have been done during shipping) which, are now basically invisible behind the glass so that even I barely see them.

I actually did not pay much for these two but I simply love them. I wanted to give them a simple frame. When it comes to Endless Summer poster - the yellow passpartue corresponds with the sun color nicely and speaking of the blue one - I love how silverish frame added life to it. Paid about $90 for both.

Sure but you would have to go to Indiana to meet him. I hung out with him for awhile the other day and actually framed up a print from scratch. He has an awesome mat cutter you just put the mat board in the device hit a pneumatic clamp to hold down the mat board, then type the numbers in the computer for the outside and inside dimensions and it is done in about thirty seconds. The guy has been in the business for about 30 years and has a ton of knowledge sadly enough he is retiring and selling his business his nephew at the end of the year. I have a feeling that his nephew will not be as generous as he is. I am going to get all of the prints that are 20x26 done before the end of the year. I will be taking him the White Stripes Providence 03 and Racs Atlantic City next week.

Sheez... at those prices, can the rest of us order up frames and basic mattes from you too? I know I'd not mind getting a few "standard size" Jones prints out of the files as well and those layouts look just fine to me ;)
