I am jealous of those who can do it and do such a fabulous job at it too.

Hey Mike -

I know you don't have a ton of money. so here's what I did.....head to Target, or wherever, buy some cheap framed 8 x 10" "art", remove the "art" and use the frame, mat and glass for YOUR 8 x 10"

Or SAA with whatever size works.

Thanks Mike and Mike.

I have aso done what Rob suggests. It is a easy way to do it for sure.

The way I did it is also pretty easy if you just take your time to plan it out before you cut anything. I will measure and draw it out on scrap paper before cutting and the draw the cut lines on the mat board fully before cutting out any holes. It's a little time consuming, but I found it relaxing. Most of my frames were purchased at Ollie's bargain outlet and Kmart. All the ones like the Johnson are 14x18 and were purchased at Kmart at $17 per.

I posted this in the pickup section, but juat did a quick frame job on it. Went with an old looking frame and a simple single mat. I am considering changing to a red/blue double mat at some point, but do like this so far.

Looks great Mark, good job!
The Rangers were referred to as "The Blueshirts" after all, so your choice of just solid blue works perfectly. If you did want to add red, maybe just some thin piping around the image or frame?
Great piece!
