Photo Frames and Photo Mats

Photos are often considered as their owners' most valuable possessions. It's a shame to keep them stored in boxes and albums don't always do them justice. Select the most important ones and put them in a photo frame.

Photos generally require matting. This adds depth and interest, while protecting your valuable memories. Print emulsion touching the glass is not a good thing, as it will stick over time, and damage the photo. This is rarely reversible.

Be sure to use acid-free paper. Otherwise chemicals from non-archival paper will ultimately ruin your photo.

Fingerprints are bad. This should come as no surprise, but be very careful when handling photographs in transit to the frame shop, or when doing it yourself. Oily prints are even more evident when displayed behind glass. Pick up your photo from the back and its edges.
