A few years ago, I wanted to have a print framed so I bought a Groupon for a local framing store. The deal was something like $150 of framing for only $50. I figured it couldn’t be that expensive. So I showed up at the store with my coupon and print. An employee helped me pick a matte and frame that worked well. Then we went to the cash register.
Even with my coupon, the price was more than $300. I was shocked. How can a frame and a piece of glass be so expensive? I ended up going without a matte and getting one of the cheapest frames.
