Good Questions: Affordable Framing?

Good Questions: Affordable Framing?

Oct 17, 2007


I bought some nice oil paintings while on an overseas trip at a very good price. Now back in San Francisco, I'm trying to find an affordable way of framing or stretching the paintings onto a board. I went to Aaron Brothers and found out that it would be about $70 just to stretch the paintings out on a piece of wood.

Are there more affordable options out there? Surely I'm not the only one who has brought paintings back only to keep them rolled up because framing is so expensive.




You are definitely not the only one.

Anyone have tips for Cameron?
