HOW MUCH DO CUSTOM FRAMES COST AND HOW SOON CAN I GET THEM?
Pricing custom frames is not an exact science, but here is some guidance that will be useful:
First, we do a lot of business with my wholesale framer and pass the bulk savings along to you.
Any custom frame 12" x 16" and under costs $66 (and $71 for the hammered gold profile).
There is a reason for this: the framer still must charge for the labor to assemble four corners no matter
how small or how large the frame is.
The cost of the moulding for frames 12" x 16" and under is not the determining cost factor.
The larger the custom frame, the closer the price gets to a standard-sized frame.
This means a 31" x 42" custom frame will cost maybe $20 more than a standard frame . . . under $200.
A 36" x 48" inch frame will be under $300. Really not bad!
You can always bring the piece in or call for an exact price.
Alpine Fine Art does not play the "wider frame, bigger price tag" game.
Three-inch and five-inch moulding is basically the same in price and labor, so we charge about the same,
maybe $10 more depending on which moulding.
WHEN CAN YOU GET YOUR FRAME BACK? Usually three or four days.
Our framer does not work on weekends, so if you place your order on a Friday afternoon, it will take more days.
If you have a special rush job, not that artists are known to procrastinate at all of course (!), we can
sometimes expedite the process to help you out in a pinch.
Remember, if you bring your work in with you, the work will be mounted in the frame AT NO EXTRA COST and the
framed piece will come back to you mounted and with hanging hardware and wire already installed.
This is a wonderful time saver, and we always encourage you to BRING YOUR PAINTING in with you anyway
so that you may select the best custom frame for the specific piece.
