Why Should You Frame Your Artwork?

framing suppliesWhen you frame artwork, you can display it beautifully while also protecting the piece from wear and tear. A distinguished frame with a custom mat board can also increase the aesthetic and financial value of a piece of art. Artists who are trying to sell their work can use picture matting to create a polished and professional presentation.

Matting and Frame Items to Consider

When choosing a frame and matting for your art, there are a few details you need to consider. First of all, choose a matting board that provides enough of a border around for your artwork to maximize the visual appeal of the work. Some mat boards do well with a large border of 3 or more inches, while others subtly highlight a piece of work with a narrow border.

Secondly, keep in mind that a poorly framed piece of art can detract from the quality and technique of the artist. An untrained eye can still notice the nuances in size of matting and frames. Instead of observing that the matting and framing is either too narrow or wide, someone might just write off the piece itself as inconsequential and cheap.
