Matting Prints

Photographer Joshua Cripps, based in the former Gold Rush town of Jamestown, CA, has a very helpful 10-minute tutorial on YouTube on how to mat photographs entitled 'How to Mat a Print in an Archival, Conservation-safe Manner'
For the monthly competitions, one doesn’t need to use glue demonstrated by Joshua—especially if one will reuse the mat for future competitions.  Instead use a doubled over low tack blue 3M tape available at your local hardware store at the inside the bottom of the mat.  Securing the mat and supporting base will prevent the piece from opening and potentially damaging the print.
Below is a list of a few websites with matting supplies suggested by experienced printers in the SCC:
- Golden State Art
- Clear Bags and Pre-Cut Mats
- Redimat
