    Default Looking for Cardboard frames.

    Just purchased a good photo printer to print some of the thousands of photos I have. I am starting with 8x10's and may go larger eventually. Hopefully to be able to sell some prints. For now I am looking for plain cardboard frames (White or Black) to hold my prints for showing. The kind we used to get our school pics in. However, I do not want the Folder frames. When searching on-line the only places I found that have these are offshore and I've had to many problems when ordering from outside Canada. (Plus I want to support Canadian Businesses). So, any recommendations for Canadian sources for these frames?

    By the way, I'm a new member and this is my first post. Looking for to sharing information and photos with you all. Cheers.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Cardboard frames - so retro!
    I might try a craft place like Michaels.

    Thanks for responding. Michaels is way to expensive. I want to buy in bulk. Hoping to sell prints at Craft shows fairs etc. Would display many in real frames but need to protect unframed prints for people to sort through. Any suggestions other than paper frames?

    Welcome to the forum. I've dealt with https://matshop.ca/index.php with very good results. They only sell in bulk (i.e. 5 or more frames or mats) and have a wide selection at various prices. Based in Victoria but they do offer much better value than Michael's for sure. Their shipping is very solid as they package all items very well and use a reliable carrier. Hope this helps.
