View Full Version : Custom mats - online source
Ok, I have my prints but I chose to have them printed full frame which presents the problem of not being able to use off the rack mats.
Can anyone point me to their favorite online supplier of custom mats?
I don't quite follow. The prints have borders on only two sides. Would that look right? Do you have any examples?
This the place I order from http://www.framedestination.com/Mat_Board/cat/mt/
Well if you are printing so large on the paper you are right, you will have to find a mat. I print in the middle of the paper, allowing the print to be self-matting.
It is an old habit from wet-printing, so there is a protective border around the print.
Next time I'll specify a true border.

Pricing, product line and service are good. Minimum order of $100 for mats or $50 for supplies such as double-sided tape and poly bags, etc. They offer pre-cut mats with backing board for digital and film formats and do custom matting as well. I've placed several orders with them and never had any problems. They also have some "how-to" articles on their web site.
Good luck, good light and happy shooting.
