Print is mounted w/ paper hinges and finished off w/ museum glass. took about 3 hours to finish but very happy with the way it turned out.

cro, did you frame this yourself ('took about three hours')?
i don't know if it is the indirect light hitting it but it looks extremely nice. you can see the depth, and the separation of the mats... really nice.

if you did it yourself, where did you buy supplies?

yes, I framed "Thunder" and all my other prints. Thanks, took a while to do the mat separations but in the end it was well worth the time.
I have a framing business here is Wisconsin, been open for 4 years. I get my supplies delivered form several different vendors, they all require a federal tax id # to purchase.

Looking forward to seeing some pics if you wouldn't mind posting.

I received my 'last kiss' print yesterday and it is a thing of beauty - the quality is fantastic. My first Keyes!

Hoping to leave it into the framers this weekend.
