Hi all: I used an aluminum frame supplier in Philadelphia, PA named "Framefit". I knew the founder, and when he passed away, his son took over the business. I used them for probably 25 years. Because they were a Phila company, and we are on the NJ coast, I got next day UPS ground delivery. I got very personal service: I would phone in an order Monday morning, and Tuesday afternoon, the frames were on my doorstep. I was very spoiled. The owner recently retired, and the business no longer exists. Not only did I get great service, their prices were very competitive, and with an order over $100 I got free shipping. The prices they offered were (approximately): 20"x24" "Crestline" profile=$15, 24"x30 "Dome" profile = $22, and 30"x36" "Dome" profile = $26, including corner hardware, springs, and hangers. I am looking for a reliable, reasonable frame supplier, preferably on the northeast or near Midwest within one to two days UPS Ground delivery. Can you folks recommend someone you have been happy with? I need an opening to accommodate 3/16" fome core backing, mat board overlay, and glass or plexiglass.
Thanks in advance

Framingsupplies.com has a page with dimensioned profile drawings.  A lot of manufacturers use the same Nielsen profile identification numbers.  There are too many suppliers to name, including Hobby Lobby for kinda wimpy versions where they saved a lot on the total aluminum used.

For best quality, service, and selection, the choice for me was Designer Moulding up to the point when I stopped buying sectional several years ago.  Can't remember ever getting bad or incorrect cuts from them, or even bad packaging.

Also, check out DonMar. They have a division in Moorestown, NJ.

You can get all of your framing supplies there and they do deliver but I don't know what their schedule is down there.

Call them.. good people. I've been with them for over 20 years.

This is not in your area but Dentons in Oklahoma City have always been a good supplier with very good prices. They might be worth checking out. Here's their web address: http://www.dentonsframe.com/

Do you have any names of similar companies that will sell the pre-cut frame lenghts in the Los Angeles area?
