While most of Nick’s art needs to be custom framed, some art can be more economically framed. Recently Nick created a series of prints that are designed to fit in a standard size matting and standard size framing. Therefore they do not need to be custom framed. How to economically mat and frame these prints: These prints fit in a mat with an 11″ x 14″ opening and a 16″ x 20″ outside dimension (both vertical and horizontal print). These mats and frames can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of custom framing.
Prints easily fit into the window of the mat with a small paper (intended) border around the print. When the top and sides are equally spaced, the bottom will be larger, allowing room for the print title and artist’s signature.
It is important to buy an acid free mat. Mats that are not acid free tend to yellow the print over time. We have created a slide show below on how to frame these prints economically.
What is needed:
- 1 (or more) standard sized “Santoleri” print – denoted by ♦Standard Sized Framing
- A mat with an 11″ x 14″ opening and a 16″ x 20″ outside dimension (standard size).
- A 16″ x 20″ frame (standard size).
- Hang it on your wall 🙂 or give it as a gift.
