  1. I’ll endorse Framebridge. It’s a solid service. I recognize they can’t use glass because of shipping, but that’s the only part of the product that feels a little less than I’d get at a local shop. Great customer service, too. I’ve used them for several pieces, both ones where they handled printing, and where I sent in artwork.

  2. I have used Framebridge at least 5 different times and have been really happy with the results. I even sent them original art, which made me anxious because I was concerned it would be lost or damaged, and got them back beautifully framed. Once I sent them an oddly shaped embroidered textile thing, and they did a fantastic job with it. They keep in touch with you every step of the way. Anyway, use them! They’re great.

  3. thank you, tina!! and I really really like frame bridge. I’ve framed things through their website and also at their cobble hill store (the people who work there are super helpful/funny/smart).

  4. Thank you Joanna, Jen and Geoff for your thoughtful comments on Framebridge. I’ll try them!
