For a Quick Start:
Buy 2-3 of our new thinner, standard size mats from the Club. EFT $5 per mat to the club account (see membership page) with reference=" mat purchase". Email firstname.lastname@example.org once you have paid and we will get the mats to you.
Download the Printing to fit the new Club thinner mats guide to get you printing ASAP.
IMPORTANT: make sure your image is the correct size for the opening of the mat board. Your photo should have at least 1cm overlap over the cutout in your mat. Use acid-free/removable tape to attach your image to the mat board. Make sure you use tape on all four sides of your print. Back the mat board. This will prevent the image from falling off or out of the mat board. It can be taped or hinged. Hinged backboards can be made from a heavy card of foam core (please note the Sale Show does NOT accept foam core). Use a bookbinding tape or heavy-duty tape for the hinge. If it is not obvious which way the print goes, indicate it on the back (TOP). Don't use velcro on your mat boards!
