Man....I keep telling people that Links framing and matting skills rival the art itself! The dude is amazing, and right around the same price as plain jane framing such as Aaron Bros or Michaels...Trust, he is the best in the business.

Hey Kev,

if you don't mind me asking, how much did frame fetish charge for a print that size.

Hey Fritz,

Yeah, no problem. When we took the print down to him, Link showed us several different options for frames and mattes, with other examples. The quotes for that print ranged from 200-something to 400-something, primarily differing with the level of detail in the matte work. We ended up going with the middle ground, with the corner matte work, for the low 300s.

I'll say this...though it *seemed* like a lot at first, the print is pretty big and it's the centerpiece of our living room. We really wanted something impressive to showcase it and with the amazing work Link does (and the numerous samples we saw), I've never thought twice about it. It was worth the 18 months we sat on the print to find a great frame.

Now, my decision to spend $130 to frame 3 postcards in faux bamboo with a palm-style matte does make me feel a bit more sheepish. But I've said too much...

My wife and I now have another Shag print, "The Drunken Cleric" (framed by Link at Frame Fetish). We purchased it this summer at the Shag store in Palm Springs. Here are a couple of photos. I'm realizing now that I need to take a picture of the print with the 2 mugs it came with since they all tie together.

What's the name of the first print? The Hula Girl "dancing" with the Tiki? Love it.

This print was signed by Don Ho, as well as Shag, while Don and his daughter Hoku were appearing in the Key Club on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip as part of Barracuda Magazine’s 5th anniversary party titled “Night of the Tiki” on August 9, 2003. We acquired it from the Copro/Nason Gallery as #46 of 149 signed prints. When I spoke to Shag at Hukilau 2010, he stated that Don Ho was quite fun to be around during this event and really enjoyed his wine…

We saw Don perform in an intimate dinner club setting at the Waikiki Beachcomber in 1998. He was a consummate performer and treated his audience like royalty, spending some time individually with each couple or individual who attended. I’ll never forget his haunting rendition of Kui Lee’s “I’ll Remember You.”
