How much does it cost to frame my picture?

The price to frame your art will depend on a number of factors including; Size, Style of Moulding, and Additional Product or Services.

Size

Generally speaking, larger costs more. The size will be determined by the size of the frame, not the size of the art. So, adding mats will add more to the cost, not only because of additional materials, but also because the size of the frame has increased. Also, most frame shops will use a pre-determined point at which a piece is considered “oversized”. Usually this point is a frame size of 24”X36”. This is because frame moulding is bought at the wholesale level in 10’ length. Generally, a 24”X36” frame can be built from one 10’ length of moulding. Anything larger is considered oversized. Oversized will increase cost at the wholesale level and, as a result, will increase the cost of your frame job exponentially.

Style of Moulding

Style of moulding that you choose for the frame. Hang 1 carries moulding styles from all over the world. Prices vary widely, and change often. Sometimes, an expensive style can be swapped with a similar, less-costly alternative. At Hang 1, the customer will always be shown all style choices available, and whenever possible, shown less costly alternatives.

Additional Products/Services

Adding additional products and/or services like mounting, stretching, matting, additional mat openings, fabric wraps, fillets and high-end glass or plex will also increase the price of the framing project
