I need a source for 80 2x3 narrow black wood frames w/easelbacks and 'plastic' glazing (what is that material in 'cheap' frames?).

Thanks much!!
Have you tried China?

As I suspected, there are many classes of frames but this one may not be in grumblers' views, thank to All Framers Gods and Goddesses! But then I might be wrong. ;)
That material is Styrene - the butter of plastic glazing options.

Honestly, Sherry, I have found that my wholesale cost on such items is typically higher than the retail price at Wal-Mart - unless you're prepared to buy several thousand.
GWI in Cerritos 1-800-622-6209

2 x 3 wood frames with splined corners, wood easel backs, glass (not styrene or acrylic, you may have to swap it out but why?) tissue wrapped in a cardboard box for less than $4.00 each. Black, Rosewood, Blue, Natural

Please tell them that Gallery Services in San Diego referred you.
I hear what you say Whynot and Ron!...loud and clear!

Rob - thank you for that contact! I will touch base with GWI and see what type of budget my customer is working with!! And I WILL tell them who referred me!

Thanks, all of you!
