My software is a complex beast, I haven't got the time to break down each material and labour cost....

I have not quoted for acrylic glazing for a very long time, so I am not very up to date with current prices, but Justin's price does not seem expensive to me at all. I would not be surprised if many other frames would be asking more that this.

At a cost of only £141 the unframe and give it back option looks very appealing!

Seriously, that's NOT very expensive framing, I would have been almost double your price.
Here for the love of picture framing - happy to share any knowledge I have
