Found frame and then cut your own mattes? Does look nice...
I should be doing my own frames shortly, but will still be relying on outside help for the mattes in the foreseeable future.
Looks nice there gonzo!

For your first time, it come out really good! Was it hard/can anyone do it? I am assuming it is time consuming, and can be a nightmare if you screw it up. This would save me a ton of money on my stuff. Already for 2 prints I've spent about 400 bucks. It's very pricey. How much would you say the whole thing cost you? (Sorry for all the drymounting questions!) :o

Looks great! I decided this christmas, I would invest in a mat cutter and I've done about 5 frame jobs so far. 3 more to go. It's not been easy (a few mistakes here and there) but I'm pretty happy with how they've all turned out.) I'll try and post some pics tomorrow. Saved hundreds of dollars easily.
