    HMMMMM, interesting question? What color will accentuate a print of a polar bear, in a white out blizzard, at night, in New Jersey? How much border should I use as well?

    Any suggestions?

    Depends of the tone of the print... A colour photo, mostly lbue, I would put in a warm-white mat. If the bear is "unwasked" and offwhite, a very "pure white" would do nicely.

    For B&W, the same applies - although I'd lean more towards white or black depending on the overall tone.

    I'd just avoid wandering around polar bear country during a white out and forget the mat.
    Those Jersey Polar Bears are particularly ornery, I hear.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I'm in a similar situation having just bought a mattcutter, and was about to ask this exact same question!

    Many thanks for beating me to it and even more thanks for all the great replies!
