    Re: Matting & Framing for Display

    I have my own crating equipment, Bob. And I don't use generic frame sizing. I have my own special sizes, my own self-contained frame shop. No big deal for just some samples. Big color prints are a totally different subject. I'm trying to finish off some 20x24 color printing before heading to the mountains for awhile, at least enough of it to use up any chemistry that might not still be good when I get back, or any aging paper.

    everyone has their own reasoning for how far and where they went.

    BUT 49 Geary has been home to some of the key photographers, as well as a destination to collectors (defined as over $100K in collection value). Might even run into other photographers

    I frame my black and white prints with white boards and black (or subtly brown toned, but mostly black) wooden frames. Currently using Artique Conservation boards from Larson-Juhl. Frames and glazing also from Larson-Juhl. 4 ply for everything unless it's a large print, where I like the look of 8.
    notch codes ? I only use one film...

    On matting. Might check out this older article by Photographer Michael A. Smith.

    Bainbridge Artcare mat board is a good choice for conservation framing.

    Any type of wood will need the rabbet sealed with aluminized mylar tape for protection of the artwork. A good reason to use metal frames of good quality. Some really cheap metal frames are painted with material that can outgas and may be harmful to the print. Finishing with the dust cover on the back of the frame can help a lot with protection down the road.

    Visit a few high end custom frame shops even if you are not going to have them do the work. Look at the quality and what they produce. Might help in the future in making decisions on how you want images displayed.

    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Willie - you and I might have eaten cottontail rabbits, but the typical American spelling is "rabbet". The British spelling is "rebate", like buying a "rebate plane" for a wood rebate, then expecting a refund-style rebate which never arrives! Dang Brits and their incorrect English! But for awhile I sold sets of tiny specially shaped rabbet planes, custom-ordered, which the maker cutely labeled as "bunny planes" because they were so small.
