    Thanks man!  I sure will!  As soon as Amazon delivers the mounting strips I'll be going to work.  :)

    Great work - the colors on the Worcester print are tough, but the mattes compliment it very well.

    D- I'm worried you may be talking about Cockage, not the print.

    Was talking about both! 


  • Just got the blue FTM back today.  From the 2017 show with Thunderpussy.

    I just need the 2011 FTM show poster to have them all... Then frame them.

    Finally got around to framing these two tonight. Used the American Frame recommendations and couldn’t be more satisfied. Easy process and great quality. Pricing is much better than Michael’s, who I’ve used in the past.

    Classy. Really nice job! I'd try that too if I ever frame another poster.

    Those look awesome, Biggs! Great choice on the frames & mats.  Glad the AF route worked out.  =)

    Did you order the frame,  glass and cut mats from them?  If so,  which glass did you get and are you satisfied with the quality?

    Thanks man. Really appreciate the tips. AF process is super easy and the mounting strips you suggested worked great. Only regret I have is not having done this in the past on all my others that went to Michael’s!

    I did order the frame, glass and cut mats from them.  I went with the non-glare acrylic since these will hang in the basement with very little light exposure. The non-glare is stated to filter 90% of UV light compared to 99% with the actual UV protective glass.  Saved a few bucks going this route.  For quality, I’d say I’m satisfied, but there’s a definite difference compared to my Michael’s frame jobs with actual glass vs. acrylic. For expensive or super rare prints I’d probably opt for actual glass.  Overall, no complaints though.

    ^ Thanks, guys! I’m happy with both overall. Couple of subtle color differences in the mats compared to how it looked online, but nothing that I’ll lose sleep over. Fun process.

    I made the mistake early on in not ordering the non-glare acrylic.  It's worth the upgrade in price and makes a huge difference in how the print looks on the wall.

    That's probably the biggest challenge of ordering the frame online - judging the colors.  I believe AF might allow you to order samples so you can see them in person, but I haven't looked into that recently.
