Measure the area of your artwork to be matted and framed. There will usually be a border
around the picture. If you do not want the border to show, measure the picture area only. Indent about an 1/8" around
the entire picture. You will now have a length and a width. Multiply these two dimensions and you will get the square inch
of the art that needs framing. Example: your picture is 12" x 16". If you multiply 12 x 16, the square inch total
$68.00.....200 square inches
$88.00.....between 200 to 350 square inches
and 600 square inches
$168.00....over 600 square inches

Most pictures, cards, diplomas, portraits, oils,
watercolors, prints etc. can be custom matted and framed for $68.00. The "Bird Dogs" print is 11"
x 18", but the area that is matted is only 5-3/4" x 14-1/4". The square inch to be matted and framed is approximately
82 square inches, falling into the $68.00 pricing range.
prices include one or two mats, custom picture frame, glass, dust cover on the back of the artwork and the hardware by
which to hang the picture. Most shadowboxing will fit into these price catagories.
Preservation matting and framing could run a little more. Preservation matting is mainly used when framing
limited editions, or other pricey art. UV resistant glass is more costly than regular glass and will help preserve your artwork
from the suns rays. Again, this is mainly used for limited editions and originals. Certain mouldings can be more costly.
