Reaction: “I was so impressed! My sister and I took this picture in the spur of the moment, so I was concerned the print quality would be lacking. But Simply Framed somehow nailed it. The matting proportions fit the print well, and the frame is very sleek. I was a bit surprised by the sawtooth hanger (as opposed to wire), but the frame is light enough that it shouldn’t pose any issues. Overall, I’m excited to give CoCo the shrine she deserves.” —Victoria Vouloumanos
Overall: We’re willing to overlook the shipping snafu (these things happen), and the customer service was great at expediting the order. As much as we’d like to put that shatterproof glass to the test, the CoCo’s portrait does look great. However, once again, that price tag is really close to three-figure territory. And to take a cue from our canine companions, that’s a bitter pill that needs cheese or some other treat wrapped around it for us to swallow.
