Why are Show Bags Not Available?

Our show bags are only available in the following sizes to ensure a snug, professional fit: 5"x7", 8"x10", 9"x12", 11"x14", 12"x12", 12"x16", 12"x18", 14"x18", 16"x20", 18"x24", 20"x24" & 20"x30".

Consider Keeping Plexiglass

You have selected a picture frame. We highly recommend keeping your Plexiglass selection when ordering a frame.

Consider Keeping Backing Board

You have selected a picture frame. We highly recommend keeping your backing board selection when ordering a frame.

Why are 1 1/8" Frames Not Available?

Our slimmer 1 1/8" frames are only available in sizes up to 30" x 30". Please choose our wider 2" frames instead.

Wider Frame Selection Required!

The 1 1/8" frame can bend or flex, or get damaged in shipping for sizes over 30" x 30". We have selected the equivalent 2" frame to ensure your frame arrives safely and is of excellent quality.

What Size Should I Enter?

If you are planning on framing this matte, your outer size should match the size of the inside of your picture frame, the same as the glass size. If this is not meant for a picture frame, you can enter any size that fits your specific needs.

Note: We do not carry over-size (over 32" x 40") picture matting at this time.

What Is An Offset?

The offset will shift your mat up vertically. There is no extra charge. Margins are measured from the outside to the opening, which means they include the bottom mat in a double mat.

Ensure your mat is in the correct orientation, (landscape/portrait) by using the rotate button on the preview.

Top Center is the most common off-set, it means the TOP and SIDE margins are equal.

What is a Reveal?

The term "Reveal" refers to how wide the bottom mat is. The standard size is typically 1/4" but you can choose to increase that to 3/8" or 1/2" if desired.

Opening Size Is Too Small!

Your opening size was too small for a double mat order because there isn't enough room to have a proper reveal. We have cleared your previously selected opening size so you can enter a new one.

Available Options

Add the following options to your custom matting order. All items will come in the same size as the outer size of the mat board.

Backing Board: Backing boards are used to protect the back of your image, they are separate uncut pieces. More detail.

Show Bags: Show bags are used to protect your art work. More detail.

Plexiglass: Plexiglass is a great replacement for glass. More detail.

Picture Frame: We recommend Foam Backing and Plexiglass with your frame to complete the set. Frames come with saw tooth hangers (assembly required). More detail.
