Re: Preparing Art Shows (was Re: Matting Art Work)


Date: Mon Mar 04 2002 - 18:03:22 PST

I use a combination of those cheap 60 pack - different colored mats inside
each other ones, some cheap white 9x12 and 12x18 ones, and the rest I cut
from colored construction paper. I think it looks better to have the work in
a"mat". I papaer clip 5 sheets together at a time, and use a template to mark
my corners only- them use my heavy ruler and an exacto knife to cut them 5 at
a time. This is VERY fast- on Friday i cut out 4 or 5 batches of them in
under an hour. I use Clarisworks and have a label database I have at home
that I update each year- so the labels are those Avery adhesive ones.
Hope this helps
