Have a poster that I would like to frame (simply, nothing ornate, would even be happy with cardboard backing and thin plastic sheet stretched over). It is 20 x 35"

Used is fine.

Any recommendations?

Thanks.

I'm replying to this old post by Suzy Bean (hallooo Suzy!!) to try again for any poster or print framing recommendations in Missoula.

Of course Google brings up:
--Michael's (okay Google review)
--LA Design Custom Framing (okay Google review)
--Frame of Mind (good Google reviews)
--Montana Art & Framing and Gallery 709 (good Google reviews)
--Art Attic Framing and Design (no Google reviews)

Some times you get what you pay for, so while of course affordable would be lovely, I'm also willing to pay for what we want.

Anyone have some tips or experiences to share?

I have loads of things to frame and want to start getting one done with each trip or two to town.

This isn't in missoula but... I have recently bought 3 of these custom made frames thru ebay ( Custom Framing Factory) (350313821195)  Many choices of wood and style , mats available, depending on size they are shipped with glass or plexi.  Superb packing shipped fedex and they  guarantee it arrives unbroken. I'm planning on buying at least 3 more !

I do appreciate the online / ebay recommendation, too!

I tried some frames through Amazon where the reviews were good - especially that the glass arrived intact. The boxes I ordered had that tinkling sound of broken glass before they were even opened. Sigh.
