While printing your photography is a great first step towards enjoying it, we absolutely recommend you take your photos to the next level with a frame. Not only is it an elegant finishing touch, but it helps protect your memories from UV damage, staining, ripping, and fading!

Matboard Options

While framed photography looks great with or without a matboard, if you’re interested in making an even bigger styling statement, you’ll definitely want to consider adding a matboard to your framed photography. The two main purposes of matboards are decoration and protection. They can serve as additional decoration to your photograph or artwork. When the right color is chosen, it can help draw your eye toward the framed piece. Matboards also protect the photograph or artwork by separating it from the glass (Lens Cover). This is important because condensation can build up inside the glass, which can result in water damage to the framed piece.

Confused about which color to select for your photos? There are a few strategies you can use to make choosing matting a bit easier: If you really can’t decide, you can’t go wrong with a white matboard. It’s a classic choice that designers and professionals use for their art or photos. For a more colorful option, try to pull a color out of your photograph and match it to a matboard color. If it’s not an exact match, that’s not a problem – using something in the same color family works too.

Display Options

Once you’ve found the ideal frame and matboard combo and placed your order, you’ll need to consider all the creative ways to display framed photography and how you want to showcase your own pieces! If you’re limited on wall space, you’ll want to check out our EaselMate™ accessory, which acts as an easel stand for any of our Wood or Metal frame styles up to 13″ x 19″.
