ARTprojectA’s 10+ TIPS ABOUT FRAMING: TIP#4

RICARDO MAZAL “Odenwald PIP-4,” 2009, Pigment ink print, 30″x24″ (image 17″x15″) – Ed. 40, $1,200

Because ARTprojectA wants to keep your ART costs down, most of the flat artwork we sell is unframed (unless otherwise indicated). This not only will reduce your packing and shipping costs, but will allow you to work creatively with your own framer to ensure that the frame is appropriate not just to the piece, but also to the setting in which you intend to display the artwork.  Our customers love this flexibility! To help answer their questions about framing, we recently turned to Barbi Reed,  ARTprojectA co-founder, owner of ANNE REED GALLERY and experienced ART collector for her advice and expertise.  Today is TIP #4 in our series about framing.

TIP #4 – “You’ll have a choice of mat thickness. We prefer 8 ply mat over 4 ply. Sometimes this can be less expensively achieved by “sandwiching” two 4 ply mats together.”

JULIE SOLA “Discovery,” 2010, Hand-carved, hand-pulled linoleum print with oil pastel, 8″x8″ – Ed. 50, $100
