I'm in the process of building a jigsaw puzzle that is 20" by 27" and plan to frame it after completion.
So I am looking ahead of completion to have it ready for framing asap but I am having trouble finding a local retail store in Toronto that have such frames. I've been suggested by Japan Camera, and Sears that it is an uncommon size and should get a custom frame. They quoted the custom frame to be atleast a $100cdn.
Well, my friend suggested Curry or other art stores, but I haven't had the chance to look yet...
I searched on google and found this site: Home of Jigsaw Puzzle Genie which is a company based in Florida, USA. Has anyone dealed with them before?
I found what I was looking for on the site for a 20" x 27" jigsaw puzzle frame kit and sold seperately a faceplate (plastic cover?), the total comes up to be ~$45USD pre-tax, pre-custom and pre-shipping charges? This order will come upto be ~$100CDN, so I'm wondering should I get this kit or should I get a regular picture frame custom made? and from where?
Any opinion or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Jigsaw puzzle frame
I would suggest either Costco who can laminate and mount it **on a backboard** for ~25 bucks, or go to Michaels with a 50% off framing coupon. Michaels includes the glare free glass and you can mount it on pressure tack board or use the puzzel fixer (glue)

the art store was on Queen and Gladstone.. Parkdale area..
or.. you know what you could do.. buy puzzle glue at walmart for $4.. and glue it both side.. and slap a piece of paper at the back (a page of calendar or something) and use poster hanger at walmart or zeller for $5.. and u have a nice home made poster for about $10..
