Finally, at long last, I am starting to print some photos. It has taken me a while to work through color calibration, soft proofing with color profiles, cropping images to match print sizes, etc, etc. It feels good to be completing the loop and getting pictures for display but now I am finding the whole framing issue just as befuddling. I can find nice frames with white mats for smaller picture sizes (8x8 and 11x14inch) but nothing for larger prints (so far looking for 12x12 and 16x20 but with aspirations to go larger still). I’d love to hear how you approach this. Some of my ideas so far have been to seek out a source for precut mats with a stiff stock backer and just put those up (without a frame). Does anyone use those poster frames with an acrylic cover (seems like you need matting to keep the picture off the glass). Is custom framing the only other option? I could see this for special cases and even selecting special colored matting to complement the image but, frankly, that’s more than I could handle for now (because of limited artistic skills and financial means). I just printed and framed a high key image of a white iris against a black shadow that looks outstanding in a black frame and a double white mat (a cheap $20 combo for an 11x14 portrait). I can see where this combo (black frame and white mat) might not always work but for this picture its outstanding. Any advice on where to find something reasonable for a 16x20 of a similar print?
