Its pretty simple

Just roam the Micheal frames on the shelf, find one thats like 5 inches or more wider/longer then the print, bring the frame to the back where they custom frames.

tell them you want a mat cut for this frame to fit the size of your print, they will custom cut a mat for a decent price.

Then you just bring the cheap frame and cut mat home and dry mount the print in it.

Recently i did this for a print of 11x17. Frame was like $25 and the mat that was in the frame was to small so i asked them to cut it to fit the print and it was like a 15 charge.

also, depending on the size of your print, Michaels does have nice frames with mats in them. For instance, I have a print that is 13 x 19. I got a frame that was 16 by 24 with pre cut mat in it that was 13 x 19. The frame is a simple black frame with a white mat. They do have other colored frames with pre cut mats in them as well.

Another place to also check is Blick. They also have a wide variety of frames also.

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.
