Custom Matting - A Stylish Addition to Any Frame

Enhance the elegance and beauty of your photos with custom matting from our crew of professionals. Matting is the flat piece of paper-like material that borders the inside of a frame. It can act as additional decoration and even help to separate the photo or piece of art from the glass frame for added protection. A simple, neutral color is the perfect way to provide a sleek, upscale border around your pictures while protecting them for years to come.

Displaying Your Photos with Custom Photo Matting

Before the digital era, photos on film were the established way to keep alive your memories of family, holidays and events. Those old photographs mean the world to you because they freeze moments in time for you to cherish forever. Our professionals are more than willing to help you do just that with photo restoration.

Custom photo matting should not only accentuate your images and artwork, but it should also be functional and protective. The placement of your photos and your mat frames can affect their longevity. While frames are commonly placed on shelves or the mantelpiece above the fireplace, those may not be the best spots for a long-lasting image.

The photo or artwork may be exposed to the heat, smoke, and soot that rises from the fireplace and damages your frame. When choosing where best to display your custom matting and frames, you should avoid places where damage can be caused by the following:

  • Fingerprints
  • Acid Damage
  • Light Damage
  • Mildew
  • Accidents Resulting in Breakage

From your favorite childhood memories to your awards for outstanding work, show off your photos and documents proudly with our premium picture mats. Our team of experienced mat framing professionals has the skill and knowledge needed to display your photos, certificates, or art pieces in an elegant and meaningful way. We pride ourselves on using archival-quality picture matting and framing that makes preserving and presenting your pieces stunning and elegant. 

Photo Mat Boarding to Match Any Need

The best choice for mat framing is to use 100 percent rag, acid-free photo mat boarding, such as museum board. Other options include vintage white core mat board as well as conservation mat board. Additionally, some types of mat boards have an archival quality shown on the side that touches the photo or artwork. For other styles, such as a fabric like watered silk, linen or another acid-free barrier should be placed between the fabric and your photo.
