I’ll show you mine if you show me yours….🤭

I’d want to avoid using 3mm if poss and consider acrylic. Also not sure your logistics work with contents in that rebate but a similar workable scenario here I think i’d want in the region of £700-£800 and not be too disappointed if I didn’t get it! Where you at?

I'd be just over £500 on that, but I would prefer to use A45 in that size.

Thanks all, oops forgot to add what I got...
I'm on £690 with 3mm float.
@fruitini yes I started with acrylic but the cost was way higher and was putting them off. Damn yes A266 is too tight isn't it. "...and not be too dissapointed if I didn't get it"... yeah that's where I'm at, it's not ridiculously big but the logistics have to be spot on in my workspace to get this done without holding up all of the other work in progress.
@gesso@bolle thanks, yes I think A42 might be a better fit for the work and their preferences.
@theframer thanks for that.

The reason I asked, the work was bought from a gallery five or so years ago which then offered it framed for £250 more but the customer declined. Surprised at my £690 they went back to the gallery framer and were quoted £420 for the same spec as mine... Interestingly £420 is what my software is giving me as my pre-markup total for the job! The only thing stopping them deciding atm is that the piece would have to be delivered and collected from the other framer which is "miles away" and it won't fit in their car even before it's framed! :lol:
This oversized piece of paper art has been here since xmas, to be framed in January, I should have charged storage...
