Important Do’s and Don’ts
Do use 1/8 inch as the smallest measuring unit. Plan your sizes accordingly. Avoid measuring in 1/16 inch units or smaller.
Don’t use the picture border as the image size and expect the mat to fit precisely to the border — it won’t. You must plan to overlap or leave white space around the image.
The diagram shows a double mat with the parts identified. The light blue is the top mat, the dark blue is the bottom mat. The S, T, and B or the Side, Top, and Bottom widths of the bottom mat.
Double mat price is 2X the single mat price, triple mat price is 3X single mat price. 32″X40″ is the largest mat we can ship. Rag mats are 2X the regular mat price. For mat sizes over 20″X30″ there will be an additional charge added to the order.
Please use decimals for all measurements. Use the chart to the right for reference.
