Custom Picture Framing Liners and Mats

Custom picture framing liners and mats create a slight visual pause between the detail of the art and the intricacy of the frame carving. They provide a smooth transition between the frame and the artwork and contribute toward the polished overall impression of the framed artwork.

Liners and mats can be wrapped in any of five hundred and fifty choices of fabrics. In addition, we have many gold, natural wood, or 100% rag mat options.

French Matting

French matting is an ancient technique that uses watercolor wash panels and ink lines around the perimeter of a matted piece, combined with watercolor, ink, tempera, marbled papers, gesso and gold leaf. French matting offers endless customization possibilities. All materials used are archival, and all work is done by hand.
