>> Ann,
>> where is the best place to get the archival tape for a good price?
>> Also, what would be a reasonable number of pieces to expect to take to
>> something like this? It's the University of Toledo's Art on the Mall,
>> an annual event hosted by the alumni association (if that helps at all
>> to envision the type of event!). How much should I expect to spend in
>> "up front" costs such as packaging etc.?
>> Thanks!!

>>> Hi Lydia,
>>> If your pastel drawings are on beautiful paper like Arches, Rives,
>>> Pescia, etc., which have watermarks and a deckle edge, consider
>>> cutting the matt window so that it is 1/4" larger (each side) than the
>>> size of the paper, to show off these qualities of the paper. Use an
>>> archival board for the window and the backing. There is a self-
>>> adhesive linen tape that can be used to adhere the art work to the
>>> backing board. Let me know if you need further instructions.
