Using a Custom Cut Mat to Frame an Odd Size Print/Artwork
Many of us have purchased or aquired a print or artwork we would love to hang, but it does not fit in a standard pre-cut mat or frame. You look into custom matting and framing and it may end up being out of your budget. So how can you get that artwork you love up on your wall for less? Use a custom cut mat and standard pre-made frame. Get a custom cut mat made to fit your artwork and have the outside cut to a size that fits in a standard, off-the-shelf frame. Then you do the assembly. The example shown below came to a total of $61.85. This is about half the cost of custom framing in some cases. You can even save more by looking for Sales on pre-made frames.
