Picture Framing

I have a print that I need to get framed. Anyone have a place they feel comfortable recommending in the Artic Burbs?

Could be one of those do it yourself places too. I'd like to try that, maybe this is the time to give it a whirl

Hobby Lobby has 50% off frame sales every few weeks. I just had my racing portrait done....very nice job.

Check their website.

my brother works at a framer but they are downtown. b ut he just framed a bunch of stuff for us for xmas and its gorgeous.

IMO I think hobby lobby doesn't do as good a job as a dedicated frame shop. hobby lobby is ok, but not if you want the best job.
