The Frame Game

Does the name "Frugal Framing" make you think you'll save money at the cost of quality? Or just save money? I want something that indicates cost saving framing, but I want to avoid the words, bargain, dirt-cheap, thrifty, etc. Is there a nice way to say it, but still maintain good craftmanship?

I really think frugal framing sounds good.

Frugal is a good word, and "Frugal Framing" has a nice ring to it.

How about intelligent investment?

frugal framing... it does tickle the tongue...

WG, at this very moment, my tounge is quite tickled.

soory about that tounge (tongue) thing.

I don't really agree with the others; I think it sounds like the Framing is Frugal, not the price.

What about Frugal Framing: the Intelligent Choice? I like subtitles. But that might not look good on the business cards and stationery and invoices.

I'm sure that whatever you choose will go well. Be sure to have fun with it!

Reminds me of "The Frugal Gourmet"...that cooking show/book from a few years back. "The Frugal Framer" might be even more evocative of "The Frugal Gourmet," and has the added touch of pointing to a person -- the framer -- rather than an abstraction -- the framing.

I'm reading this with no context, this being my first time here. Are you working on naming a new business?

Yes, Valerie, I'm starting up a framing business from home. I like the "Frugal Framer". I'll add that to my list of maybes!
