Nothing beats seeing your images in print but when it comes to presenting them to someone, to go the extra mile and put them into a mount really does make it extra special.
Of course it’s more of an investment to do this, but how much exactly?
Well as an example, the prints I present to the World War 2 Veterans for my 39-45 Portraits Project are printed at 11″ x 11″ and these are placed in a mount that is 16″ square and each of the mounts costs me around £3.
Now I get these from a friend who owns a picture framing shop and I generally give him a call and ask for 5 each time. If you don’t know a framer then it’s definitely worth popping in to see one and asking if this is something you could ask them to do.
Now in the video I show how I mount them but I’m not a Professional Framer right? I’m just showing how I was shown to do this so that the prints were able to be delivered looking something extra special but many, if not all, of the pictures I’ve delivered this way have gone on to be framed with the same mount and look great.
Hope this is useful,
