At this time Audubon Collector does not offer framing services. However, we are investigating this option. After we have found options that offer excellent quality at great value to the customer we will be ecstatic to offer this option in the future...Hopefully, soon!
Audubon Collector is working to add new items to its selection all the time. Because many of the items are rare and can only be acquired through secondary markets, particular items sometimes can be scarce and hard to find. If there is an item that you are searching for, send us a message through the contact page and we will alert you when we have located the item. If we acquire the item, we give you the first opportunity to purchase it through Audubon Collector and will discuss pricing options at that time. You will be under no obligation to purchase the item.
