How to Stop Getting Ripped Off

Meet Mountary: Framing for way, way less

Framing stores in New York are rackets. Hell, framing stores everywhere are rackets.

Custom woods. Hand-cut mats. Huge markups on framing supplies. J’accuse!

Plus you’ve gotta schlep to the shop yourself.

There’s a better way: it’s called Mountary, just arrived in NYC and promising the “easiest way to get your shit on the wall.”

Mountary offers two options.

One: you tell them the size of your art/photo, they make a custom frame and ship it to you. You insert your work. You hang it. Done.

Two: you can opt for Mountary’s new “white glove” service, in which an exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable fellow comes to your home or office, consults on your framing needs and whisks your piece away.

Roughly ten days later, it shows up in all its englassed glory.

White glove pickup and delivery is currently gratis for InsideHook readers.

So, a great option for the busy guy who has a lot of inspirational posters lying around.

Because framing inspirational posters makes them more so.

Tell yourself that.
