    Looking for some info on framing companies, i.e. reasonibly priced good quality etc.

    I have purchased my own portable studio and have some clients lined up and want to offer my prints framed as a service.

    Any guidance would be appreciated!

    Cheers

    Shaz

    Shaz, If I were you, my first port of call would be my local framers, as they can be as competitive, reliable and handy for collection. If you use them often enough, you will build up a rapport anf may get discounts etc.

    An asian photographer who sells his work on the sidewalks in lower Manhatten uses frames from this site www.jn-arts.com. They are nice black plastic photo frames (very thin frame border, unobtrusive) with molded in hangers (ready to hang). I've gone to the site but it is in chinese - I didn't install the language pack, so I've never navigated the site (don't know if it is wholesale or retail, or whereabouts on the site you may find the particular frame I described). It might be worth taking a look, however.

    I agree with Martin. I did a lot of research on web based framers, but ended up with my local framer who was equally well priced (even more with the volume discounts I now get).

    It's nice to have the personal touch, and they're always willing to accommodate my vagueries, and even rush orders and home deliver if needs be. (And I don't think any web based companies would buy me a couple of bottles of wine at Christmas!)

    As everyone has said look out for local framers, I tried doing it myself by buying frames from the net, but it was more hassle than it was worth.

    I get all my printing and framing done at the same place by the same person, after bringing in regular work I now get quite a good discount, because its the same person printing and framing my stuff the results are also consistent and I can often call up at short notice to get an image printed and framed that day.

    I use Ready Made Picture Frame Co. Their prices are excellent, the quality spot on and they make bespoke sizes in any quantity, plus their customer service is always fantastic. I've ordered hundreds of frames from them and they've always sorted out any problems - breakages, defects, etc. immediately.

    They have a huge range and also retail outlets if you want to have a look at the real thing before ordering at trade price.

    The only downside is the minimum order, but if you go for them it's worth ordering the extra few to get free delivery.
