MAKE IT SPECIAL
Add A Creative Touch To Your Framing Project
What is a specialty mat cut? Most mat openings are cut in a typical rectangle shape. Specialty mat cuts are unusual shapes or designs cut into the mat instead of the usual right angles. A carefully chosen specialty mat cut can creatively enhance the art. There are so many shapes from which to choose, how do you know which one is the right one? As with most framing designs, there is no one right answer. We took the same art and added different mat cuts. Which one do you like best?
Persian It has a soft formal look.
Grecian Notch It has a geometric formal look.
Nouveau It has a bold, timeless look.
Octangle It has a feminine, vintage look.
Angle Array It mimics the frills in the dress.
Camelback Flair Its flowing lines match the dress.
There are no bad options!
It just depends on what you are trying to emphasize.
A SPECIALTY CUT CAN….
…hide unwanted items in the image. …add softness and warmth to an image.
… reflect a period of time. …mimic the feel of the image.

Yes! We can create Custom mat cuts for you based on your framing design needs.

This custom cut was designed to emphasize and flow with the flames on the jacket.
What kind of specialty cut would add a creative spark to your art? We can do it!
As you can see, a lot of specialty mat cuts require two mats, but you can play with the color for different effects. Use two layers of the same color for a subtle look. Or, make one layer much brighter than the other to highlight something in the art. There is no limit to how many mats can be used!
We know how hard it can be to make a decision from just a corner sample. We can do a design of the matting & show it to you before we cut it!
