"Cheap" and "good" are terms that rarely, if EVER, go together. Anything sold by Michaels or AC Moore is not going to have any quality associated with it. If the OP is that worried about cost Saran Wrap will do the same thing, look as "good" and be cheaper still.xdodgex said:Cheapest way would be to get one at a Michaels or AC Moore crafts store. They carry these in different sizes by the picture frames. They have different sizes available. Sunday paper usually has flyer with a 40% off coupon, or go to their website to get coupon.
To each his own I guess. The taxidermist that mounted the bird in the first place would be the best source for a display case. My point in making the "Saran Wrap" comment was not to offend you but to make a point about getting what you pay for.xdodgex said:Everyone loves a smart <censored> Paul. 9 times outta 10, when someone uses the phrase "without breaking the bank"....they are looking for a cheaper way out. And while the memorabilia cases sold at michaels and ac Moore aren't the quality of a custom case, they certainly can serve the purpose to protect a duck in acrylic if someone wanted to stay in the $40 range.
And I don't know how concerned the OP was about price...but I'll assume if cost wasn't an issue, he would just take the duck back to the taxidermist to have it done.
Either way the Saran wrap comment wasn't really necessary. It's comments like that and ones from a few others on this site that make some of us not frequent here or comment when a fellow HPAer has a simple question.
That is pretty much a standard cost Mack. Seamless/edgeless plexiglass cases are expensive to make and even more expensive to ship.MackLegacy said:Answered my own question at van *****.....$175-200 before shipping...ouch
