MATTED PRESENTATIONS FOR
FINE ART ON PAPER AND PHOTOGRAPHS

Matted presentations are used when you want to cover the edges of the photograph or work on paper and the mat is deep enough to provide a separation from the glazing. This is often done when the artwork has large borders around the image or has edges that are frayed or damaged.

For additional information see mat presentations.

FLOAT PRESENTATIONS FOR FINE ART ON PAPER AND PHOTOGRAPHS

Float presentations are used when it is important to see the edges of the artwork. The art may have a deckled edge or may come completely to the edge. It is also used on artwork that is dimensional or doesn't lie flat.

When using a float presentation it is necessary to separate the artwork from the glazing material with a spacer. For additional information see float presentations.
