Stampede

Sowers

Lifted 1

Just make the one simple decision - drop all three prints off at the framers in one go because they all deserve to be framed and displayed. :D Definitely use mats.

Matted and acrylic.

But what about those pretty deckled edges?

Matted and Acrylic is the way to go IMO for those big guys. I had some damage on my Sowers so the Matte helped hide the issue; which was the reason I did not go with the decked edge show look but now that I look at it everyday, I really like the matte... it kinda builds a pedestal for the white space.

When I had Sowers floated you could see waves in the print because it's so long. It bugged the fudge of me.

Oh. Good call. So ill mat then for sure. Now, aside from the heaviness and expense, any reason to not do high quality glass?

This is also compelling. I'm settled on a mat then.

But what color? White?

I live in earthquake country so I usually frame everything that large with uv plexi. Wait until the Framing Devil finished my Stampede of you need color suggestions.

Good call on earth quakes. I actually live in a high earthquake zone too. Didn't even think about that until you mentioned it. Ok. Acrylic it is, with a mat.

Mmmmm. Those are sexy and add great texture. Never gone with linen or anything really textured before. Might look into it.
