The picture-framing mat is most commonly known by some for its use as additional decoration to enhance the look of a framed piece, sometimes in conjunction with a fillet or more rarely, liners made of wooden moulding with a cloth surface. Although matting usually contains only one opening per layer, it may contain none if a picture is “float-mounted” or “top-mounted” (placed on top of the mat) and mats with two or more exist, more commonly with photography of the family or pictures of individual family members type than other types of artwork. Typically the mat or mats, if matched carefully and properly proportioned, serve to help draw the eye in towards the framed piece, or towards a particular key element of the piece. However, while the mat is usually regarded as something to complement or set off the artwork to best effect, or not to interfere or compete with it (neutral-colored mats are often preferred by high-end art galleries), there are some examples of the mat being regarded by the artist as a part of the artwork.
There are many types of mat to suit different jobs and different tastes. We have production mat for larger volume mats and backing boards. We also have the following acid free, archival quality etc. Mats come in many different finishes from paper to fabric. Consult with Lorraine or Bob to find that mat that best suits your piece and price range.
Mats can be further enhanced by the use of a ‘V’ Groove or debossing (known outside the framing industry as traditionally embossing) or even some delicate pen work. Also if you have a particular graphic in mind the mat can be cut using two or more layers to create a piece of art in it’s own right.
