You need something framed but when you Google online framing options there are just too many companies to choose one. I know you want to pick the right one, but who has the time to look through them all? NO WORRIES. I looked for you.

2. Framebridge

Free prepaid mailer to send your piece

Custom printing- they print your digital upload

Offer free services like design help and photo editing

Gallery wall consultation ($99)

Lots of cool frames

BEST website

Cons:

I assume they aren’t super cheap because they are soo custom. But you’d have to put in your order to see. Sorry, I’ve never used them. I think they are competitively priced for custom framing.

In conclusion

For my time and money my first choice would be Framebridge. I think they offer the most options, the highest quality and the best service. I like that they assemble my piece for me but I keep putting off sending my stuff in to them.

My second choice would probably be Picture Frames because they are the cheapest option and they have a great selection of products and services. They don't assemble the piece for you (unless you upload an image) but I might actually get my framing done because it's easy to buy something affordable and deal with it when it shows up.


Choose what's best for you! Hope this helps.
