Since the demise of habitat I can't find large frames with mounts for big pictures (A3-ish) any suggestions? I don't want to buy online.

Hobby craft. But I use an online company e-frames and they are superb

What sort of frame are you looking for? Metal? Wood? Ikea tend to do some nice ones for a 3 prints

Black wood for large black and white photos.

I just looked at e-frame...£42 for a wide black wood frame and mount, thanks Dave.

They have done frames for some of my photos up to A1 size and they have been quick and good quality. The only time I had a problem they sent a replacement on 24 courier

I was worried about glass but it looks like they use acrylic?

They do acrylic as standard. Some of my A2 photos have non reflective glass

Oh, I use a bespoke framers in Rye. Very cheap, excellent frames. Maybe not quite so good if you don't live nearby eh?

Well I won't be nipping down in my dinner hour Mouse.
I think there's one local framer left here, and I know of one in Warrington that used to do work for the camera club, but it's just easier to do it yourself.

Snappy Snaps - a nationwide chain. I bought a 90cmx60cm frame in their Kilburn High Road shop (NW6) for an olympic poster.
