Michaels has specials on framing fairly frequently - just keep your eyes open for them. I've had all my windowcards done at Michaels and will continue to bring them business in the future.
I just had this done at Michael's. I got double matting and the anti-glare glass so even with the coupon it was pricey (over $200), but I am happy with how it turned out. I don't have a big collection otherwise I wouldn't get a lot done this way. I really like the way the ticket was put in the frame on the pic above, and might consider that if I were to get another framed in the future.
I frame mine all the same - in an off-the-shelf 18x24 flat black frame with a custom mat from Michael's. I couldn't find 16x24 frames when I started this project - would have preferred it to be even on all sides, but I'm 7 posters deep into it now so I'm not going to start over. lol On a couple of them, I used embellishments, but got too lazy to continue this. Eventually I'll get new mats for these two to do away with it altogether. And if I could figure out how to post more than one photo, I would do that. http://instagram.com/p/gysqw-v-D3/ http://instagram.com/p/fdPKt1P-Fa/
I recently framed my first window card for my first apartment. I went to Aaron Brothers which is notoriously expensive for framing, but also known for doing amazing work. I simply couldn't afford $200+ right now, so I saw a frame on their shelf I liked and framed it myself carefully. $28 and 15 minutes later, I was very happy with the result :))
