Yep . I have a bunch of posters bought for $10-$35 each . Poster shop wanted $80 or so apiece for framing in thin metal edge frames . Found a swap meet person selling framed posters and pictures for $30-$40 each . He sent my posters to his framer and he put them in nice , but simple , dark wood frames for $20-$25 each depending on size . I have them around the walls in my parts store .The sticker shock is having them framed.
I made the same mistake a few years ago with Michael's. Bought a nice print, cheap, maybe 19.99. After frame, matting and whatever magic they put on it, I cleared 120 bucks. I was expecting a simple 49 dollar gift.....from now on Ill just buy a poster at walmart and put it in a frame myself.I can't say where my next prints will be framed but I can say for certain it will not be Hobby Lobby, their prices are beyond expensive.
