Finding an 11x17 frame is REALLY HARD!

Michaels had one, without a mat, and it was a little beat up. I asked them about custom framing and it would have been $118 for a metal frame (more for wood), and wouldn't be done by Christmas.  The scary part is that $118 is the 50% off price!!!!!  Hobby Lobby had nothing 11 x 17, no discounts on frames, and couldn't get it done by Christmas either.  Aaron Brothers was awesome!!  They had a few different 11 x 17 frames which were all really nice.  I ended up getting one that was 18 x 24 I think, and they're going to custom cut a mat for it.  They said they couldn't get a full framing done by Christmas but will have the mat cut by Tuesday.  It's a nice black frame and I think it's going to look great!  Plus the frame was 40% off, and I thought it was reasonably priced even before the discount ($28).  Score!!  Hopefully my sister will like it.  We'll see.

Re: Finding an 11x17 frame is REALLY HARD!

  • I remember we had a tough time finding one when we needed that size too... we ended up ordering something online - I think from frames.com or some other name like that - and we were really pleased with the quality of it.
  • 11*17 isn't a common size.  For future reference, though, If you're having trouble finding the exact size then you could consider buying the next larger size you get. I was having trouble finding a 8X12 size so I went for mat picture frame idea. For that, you could buy a pretty large frame and add a colorful mat behind your photograph. I have seen matted photo frames that look great on walls.Just make sure that the mat looks clean and even.
    There a few online websites where you can buy customized and exact sized i.e. 11x17 picture frames at cheap prices. If you search smartly, you could get lucky!
