How To Guide for Matting Prints

Our original video is no longer available, but we suggest this great tutorial from photographer Josh Cripps, to learn how to correctly mat your photographic prints in a safe, archival way.

Prepare a clean work surface and gather your supplies:

  • archival adhesive tape like Filmoplast or Lineco Linen Hinging Tape
  • a set of our DIY Photo Mats
  • a paperweight or bean bag to hold your print in place
  • an archival ink pen for signing your artwork (optional)

Happy matting!
