    Hi...need a bit of help/advice here, been looking to frame a few of my pics recently but a bit put off at the price of some of the frames i have been looking at, was looking at a flat black 10inch by 10inch frame, 30ish seems to be the going rate...does anyone know any cheaper websites/shops !
    thanks
    Brian.

    Have you tried Wilkinsons, The Range and Ikea. A square 10x10 frame - if they do them- would fall into the 5-7 bracket.

    Wilkinsons you can tell they're not fantastic quality when you handle them but they look great on the wall

    Edit - Pipped at the post

    I've just framed a load of paintings for the current Mrs Lobster and we used frames from The Range. They seemed good quality and looked great, better than Ikea as the glass wasn't as thin. For mailorder - you can try these people.

    I use the same as Paul above. They do some very nice wooden frames at a very good price and my customers love 'em. Smile

    i prefer to pay decent money for frames.... whats the point in taking an excellent photo with 1000's of of gear, and putting it behind 3 of glass.... you might as well take it with a mobile phone!! I use non reflective glass too, as even though it can be another 20 for a large frame, i think it is worth it.

    The 'Ready Made Picture Frame Company' have a nice range and their prices anit too shabby either.

    If you are after something a little bit special take a look at 'Ultimat'.

    Depends on what your customers are prepared to pay and what the competition's doing.

    4x90 seem quite good for 'off the shelf' frames. Of course there are other options, I've just put an exhibition up using frames from charity shops anywhere from 1 and up Smile.
