I have two original oil paintings (around 55 inch x 45 inch each). It is currently rolled up and needs to be framed. I went to Micheal's to find out how much it would cost. They quoted me close to $1000 for both of them. I am trying to find out if anyone knows a place which can do it for cheap?

That sounds about right. I had several antique calendars framed and the cost for a good ~16 x 20" frame was > $300 for each. That was 8 years ago at a local art/framing store.

Not sure if it's a lot cheaper but you could check out Jerry's Artarama over on Wake Forest Rd (by Trader Joe's). Apparently this is where a lot of local artists go for supplies and framing.

I take all my stuff to Creative Crafts & Framing in Roxboro. In the past they have been cheaper than Michael's for me but I haven't gotten anything done that big.

I recently had a large original oil framed at A.C. Moore's at Beaver Creek Commons in Apex.....about 36". They had a 50% off coupon online and it cost me about $250. They run these specials fairly often. The painting looks beautiful and they did a really nice job. .

Default Thank you

Thank you all for the replies. Since I live pretty close to Beaver creek commons, I will first find out in the AC Moore there and see how much they quote.

Yes, definitely use the coupons AC Moore and Michaels provide. I had mine done at Michaels when they ran the 60% coupon and they did a great job.

There is also a vendor at the fairgrounds that's reasonable...forget the name and I've not been in so long, not even sure of their location.

I'd check them out too. They've been there for probably 20 years and do excellent work. Kidd's Frames - They're in one of the buildings near the grandstand.
