So our wonderful Photog is gifting us with 4 large prints. My problem is I’m having trouble finding reasonably priced frames & not sure exactly what size to get.
The pictures will be 8×12 and I of course want to matte them.
Anyone know of a good place that I could find some dark brown frames that will work?

Try Michael’s, IKEA, Hobby Lobby (dont have them around me but heard great things about them), Target and Craigslist

8×12 is not a common frame size. Photographers love that size b/c it shows the full frame of what they shot (esp if they didn’t leave room for cropping). I don’t think Michael’s, Target etc carry that size — they carry the more popular 8×10. Try specialty photo shops, or look online. Or — wait for Michael’s to have their framing coupon. An 8×12 should be matted in a 12×16 matte/frame at least.
OR — simply get a common frame for an 8×10 matted print and crop the image 🙂
