Using the same moulding (below):

eFrame:
910x610mm frame, with Acrylic glass delivered: £60.84 including VAT

Brampton Picture Framing:
910x610mm frame, with Acrylic glass delivered: £54.98 including VAT

Our site is still work in progress as you cannot buy custom windowmounts online, but just send us an email and we'll sort it. Also, if you wanted specalist glazing like UV acrylic, etc, again, just send us an email or give us a call.
is that including delivery?
hopefully gettin a job sorted in the next few weeks, so i'll be looking some stuff framed, just wondering can i post a screen print down to you for framing? (and if so is it insured while it is with you and when being returned framed in the post?)

yes you can post the print down for framing, and yes it will be insured whist here and when sent back.
Try Brampton Picture Framing, these guys know what they are doing. :D

Got any recommendations on a place for cheap frames with mount for a 24"x36" print ?

I was looking at these maybe ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230595635877? ... 1436.l2649

Pretty ghetto but cheap
They will do the job, but if you are framing a decent print, you should really consider acid-free mount and backing board and UV plexiglass or similar. Then it starts getting expensive, but unless you do it properly you will in time de-value your prints.

Do you know who in the UK will do it with plexiglass and acid frees for 36x24 in UK, can't find anyone without it costing a bomb around my neck of the woods. How much on average would one expect to spend doing this with a decent framer?

pretty sure the company who makes all those is http://framepakltd.co.uk/ and they have eBay frames listed in stock on their website. Prob could just email em to change the backing n glass as they have those in seperately.

His frame up’s are really superb, as is his pricing and shipping! Super friendly emails to boot! My prints no longer go to anyone else when it’s time for them to get framed. :D
