Framing service in Dublin?.

Has anyone ever used one?.

Basically I've a 'thank you' card I want to have framed. Nothing overly fancy, but the card mean's alot.

Has anyone ever used a framing service, and are they expensive?.

Your probably better off getting a frame yourself. They have them in Dunnes and Woodies, really reasonable. Habitat have a classier more expensive collection. I know there is a little picture framer in Raheny, beside the driver test centre.

Thanks, but I tried that and made a balls of it.

I don't mind paying as this card mean's alot to me.

Just the background so you can appricate how valuable it is. In May I gave a chap CPR (he's a heart attack on Leeson St. Bridge). I thought he'd died. But he survived. His family got my details (address etc) from the Dept.of Defence and he sent me a 'thank you' card.

So really, its very special to me.

wow.. good for you. Are you in the Army?

Realistically, that stuff should be taught in school. The framers in Raheny might suit your needs then.

There's a framing shop, it might be called We Frame It, I'm not sure... but in any case it's on Dawson Street, near the Murder Ink bookshop.

Great stuff, and yes I'm in the army.

I'm living very close to Raheny, but I've no idea where the test centre is. However I'll drop into Raheny tomorrow. Much appricated.

It's off the Howth road. If you take a left turn off the Howth road opposit the petrol station near Sybil hill you are on "All Saints Road" keep going passed the park, passed the tennis courts and you will see the set of shops on your left.

I though you guys killed folk, not save them! (kidding of course)

If you seen the size of me giving someone CPR you'd think I was killing him too!.

And tell ya what, if my ugly mutt gave you the 'kiss of life' I bet you'd wanna die, maybe I didn't do him any favours at all, lol.
