Quick Tutorial: Mat your Prints or Photographs

You can create professional mat frames for your prints or photographs. They make great gifts!

What you need:
Mat borders cut to size (any picture framer can cut these for you)
Backing Foam Board cut to size
Double sided tape

Backing Foam Board and Mat Frames to fit 10" x 13" Prints

Place your backing foam board on a flat table surface. Stick your print with double sided tape evenly in the centre of the foam board. To help make sure it is placed straight, you can pencil an outline around the print before sticking down.

Place double sided tape on the outside edges of the back of your mat board frame. Stick down firmly over your print so the mat border creates a nice frame around your print.
