Development of Matting and Framing
Framed Art Print – Composite Twilight
It took me a long time to develop the way I wanted to frame the 13×19″ prints. When they are formatted to have an image approximately 12×16″, I felt they should fit inside a 16×20″ frame.
As you will notice above, this does not leave a huge border. In addition, you might notice that the print has a small paper edge around it. I wanted the print nature to be clear.
I also wanted it to be simple enough to fit in with any decor, but allow me the use of some color to bring out the image more. The sliver of color – dusk grey above – is all it takes to accent the art print.
There is also enough room so the print itself can be signed on the paper border – rather than the matt board to possibly be lost years later.

Found this and thought it worth sharing – how opposite printing is from web images – hmm
