I was trying to find a good place from some other posts on this site for printing and framing some of my pics. It's weird how common those terms are and I can't find any good, recent posts that have companies listed.

I will be printing/framing about 5 larger prints and about 10 smaller prints. Some are going in to a local art show, some others will be hung at my place, and some others will be gifts to some friends.

I was planning on getting them all done at Adoramapix, since I have heard so many good things about them. But I sent them an email with a couple of questions right after they returned from Passover and still haven't received a reply. So, I'd rather spend my $1500 somewhere else now.

Can anyone recommend a good place that has a good selection of frames, mats, and size options that can print something for what I am looking for? Thanks. (I'll check the mini search options below too, if it comes up with what I am looking for.)

PS - This section needs a new subforum for gallery presentations. This one seems to have a lot more questions on web based stuff. :)

Both have a vast product list including custom frames, might be what your looking for,

I needed 16 mounted 16x24 prints for a gallery show so I simply bought them through my own website which has Mpix as the print provider.

All of them turned out basically perfect along with an unmounted 24x36 that I had framed at Aaron Brothers.

Big +1 for Mpix.
