Took a chance and ordered online, no adjustments to my images, no idea what to expect… What a surprise and absolute pleasure to receive my small, well packaged order, so promptly.

DIY Matt boards

Our Slide-in Matts are top quality, 100% pulp matts that are acid free and alkaline buffered to combat the natural ageing of the paper, protect your print, and ensure longevity. All openings are bevel-cut, and each top matt is affixed to a back mount board. These matts are open at the top to allow prints to slide-in easily. Slide-in matts are available in your choice of white or black.

Production time : 5-7 working days

We manufacture a range of DIY matt boards. *We have many requests from photographers looking for 7×10 inch slide-in mounts, or Matt boards. Sue Bryce has become a big brand in promoting photography.

Her drive to share the advantages of In-Person Sales (IPS) has made her a celebrity in the photography industry. Shunning the “shoot and burn” trend Sue recommends offering matted prints and selling on her well known “reveal wall”.

PLEASE NOTE: The window, or opening, is cut slightly smaller to allow it to overlap the print. We work on a global standard for photographic sizes (with the exception of the 7×10″) . The overlap is approx. 3mm on all sides (this will then be smaller than the image size).

Fine Art Printing: As there are various print options, these are not included, please visit our printing pages for options from Fine Art to Photo Prints.

** In-Store Mounting involves a different process whereby the prints are vacuum pressed onto the backing board and the matt board is place securely over the print and glued into place. The end product is no longer a ‘slide-in’ mount and remains permanent.
