Thank you for visiting FrugalNavigator.com! Most of our customers buy charts for sailing, fishing and navigating the oceans. We recognize, though, that nautical charts are beautiful and, with the proper frame, make stunning art pieces for the nautically inclined.
The average NOAA chart is around 3' x 4' . A custom frame package for a chart this size would average $350 without glass (chart & shipping included). We use, very heavy, high quality paper and UV/Water resistant inks. We typically frame without glass since weight can be prohibitive. (We are happy to quote lighter acrylic material if you desire.)
One advantage in using FrugalNavigator.com for your custom chart framing needs is our ability to resize. We can crop, enlarge, reduce and even join charts to meet your needs. Often, a smaller version of a standard NOAA chart will better suit your space or budget. (We do not charge for simple changes in chart size.)
We typically ship within one week. Ground shipping time will depend on your distance from our shop here in Spokane, Washington.
The possibilities and varieties are limitless so we ask that you choose your chart from one of our catalogs, and email us the chart number and preferences. We'll get back to you with some frame options/dimensions along with a quote.
