    I float mount my prints so I sign on the board that the print is mounted to, not on the window mat. I also apply an archival sticker to the back of the mat with the edition information regarding the print and I sign that as well. I dislike my signature but most collectors and galleries want the work signed on the front so I use a very hard pencil and sign my name quite small.

    I sign the border, since the lower right corner of my prints have a strange tendency to be solid black...

    I label my prints on the back with name, date and signature (and sometimes name of the photo club and my member # when entering competitions and shows).

    Initially I did not sign prints because of horrible handwriting but then people interested in my work convinced me that I should. As an artist I believe that the print should be signed. Most of my work is dry mounted so I sign the matte. If it is not dry mounted I sign the print. I also attach a label to the back with image information and contact information. If they like the work they will know how to contact me.
