Picture Framers

I have a picture/painting on wood. The piece of wood is 8′ hi & 4′ wide. What should it cost to have the piece mounted on a plywood frame? The plywood frame will be custom built. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. Your best bet – of this picture is important to you and you plan to preserve it properly – is to take it to a professional framer and have it mounted in a museum quality way that is none permanent and will protect it for generations to come. It can and will cost anywhere between 40 to 120 depending on your choices and if you can catch a sale. The best way to keep the cost down would be to pick a metal frame, regular glass ( though non-glare glass would be better and museum quality glass would be best), a piece of foam core on the back and wire for it to hang. Good luck.
