Just bought a bunch of frames for my RTTY, Phone, 15, and 20M DXCC certificates (six so far for 2012, got CW and mixed this past Spring)

Michaels is not only has 50% off their nice house brand frame, but has a 25% off coupon that applies to sale items in today's paper.

Zach, thanks for the info!

Can you post up the part numbers of the frames? They always have a huge supply of frames and knowing the number world help. I need to get off my rear and put up the 5 certificates I have still in their mailing tubes!

A new Michaels just opened up near me in the last few months.

For DXCC you are looking for standard 11x14 inch frames--they have a wide variety of styles to suit your taste.

You also have awards that need 8.5 x 11 inch frames--this is somewhat of an oddball size in which your selection is rather limited--though you could add a mat to a standard 11x14 inch frame.

OK, thanks! That will narrow down what I need. DXCC awards are the only certificates I have now needing frames.

I'll go up there tomorrow!

Roger.... Just a hint for you.  If you plan on getting more certs later (we all can wish and hope I guess..hi), its a good idea to buy a couple/few extra.  When your new certificates come in, you wont have to look all over to match the frames you have. I know, I went through that once.  I now have a few extras here even with all the paper on the wall.  73, Gene AF3Y

Good idea!

I like going to Michaels. It's like going to Fry's/Lowes/Home Depot. I usually come out with more than what I went in for!

Mine are still in mailing tubes too.  I've never been to Michaels but we must have one nearby.

Thanks for the tip.
