Framing Tips




Finding frames with pre-cut mats can sometimes be a challenge, and it is a help question I often get asked. So I have complied a list of frames with mat openings that best fit my print sizes.

Remember that you can always get a custom mat made for whatever frame you have. Visit Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or Arron Brothers, tell them the size of your frame and the size of the opening. You can also get them done online at Matboard and More, a good option if you're getting a few at the same time.
