See How Your Chosen Image Looks Matted and Framed
You may mat and frame any of my images right online, adjust the mat size and color, choose from tons of frame styles, and, if you wish, purchase the actual components as a framing kit. All this may be done at pictureframes.com. I have absolutely no affiliation with this site, but it does allow you to see (for free) what your image will look like framed, and if you wish to buy the framing components from them, their prices are reasonable.

4. Press the "Checkout Now" button (the system will not ask for any personal information) and download the image to your computer.
