Default Not expensive

Interesting that you should think I'm expensive. I think I'm pretty cheap. A 10 x 8 inch watercolour or print framed with conservation-quality window mount and packing board and a stained wood frame (with a nice gold site edge) with standard glass would cost around £20–£25 (about US$50 or less).

That would include:

::the use of conservation quality materials throughout,

::an encapsulated package (see my website in a week or two to find out what that means)

::a moisture-proof backing board sealed with tape (which is the way we normally finish picture backs in the UK – unlike the US where they text to use paper to cover the back)

::hanging cord attached with D-rings to the frame.

Is that expensive?
That doesn't seem expensive to me, and it does seem like quality work, but then I haven't had anything framed in many years. Of course, a US$2.00 pound makes many UK prices seem high to Americans.
