Framing / mat cutting for a print with dirty border
Prints made with filed out carrier....
How are these prints usually framed? The only way I've seen so far is with no matting and glass directly touching the print. I really don't want to do it that way. I could use spacers but then if the print or print on mount board buckles even a little, it would touch the glass.
My usual method is float mounting with about 3/4" all the way around or mat cut so that it cleanly shows the image only. I don't think the former method would look good with dirty borders and the latter defeats the purpose of using filed carrier entirely.
