Signature Mat Kit Information

 

All signature mats include the mat, pen/pencil, wood frame, hanger, practice signing sheet and **plexiglass/acrylic to protect the mat after signing. You will received the framed mat ready to be signed, all you need to do is install your photo.

       Black signature mats comes with a white pencil, or you can use silver or gold pens.

         White signature mats come with black acid free pen, or  you can use silver or gold pens or pencil.

         Silver and gold mats come with black sharpie, or you can use ball point pen for an embossed look.

         Test first on the included 8x10 practice signing mat before using on the actual signature mat.

 


*All mats are custom cut, we can make the photo opening any size you need, also the title opening can be made any size or removed. Actual mat opening size is 7.5x9.5

**We always ship with the signature mat in front of the plexiglass/acrylic so it's ready to sign upon arrival. The plexiglass/acrylic is behind the mat and foam core behind the acrylic, click here for details.

The acrylic comes with protective film usually white film or blue film this will need to be removed.

Videos on how to install your artwork in a frame

To hold everything in the frame we install flexible points on the back (see below). To install your photo simply bend up the points remove the backing, remove the acrylic, remove the signed matting, remove the protective film from both sides of the acrylic, place the acrylic in the frame place the mat in the frame tape in your photo into the mat opening place in the foam core backing and bend the flexible tabs back down.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Quantity of signatures per mat
20x24 - 8x10 photo ~220 and 5x7 photo ~250
16x20 - 5x7 photo ~160 or 8x10 photo ~125
11x14 - 5x7 photo ~60
 The number of signatures per mat really depends on the photo size and the guests signing it. I have some customers that could get twice that many signatures on a mat and then other customers would get half that many or less. If your guests add more than just their signature like "Good wishes for both and much love, Have a great honeymoon. Can't wait until you start having babies,  Regan and family 2021, Ronald, Emily, Jason, John, Mary, Elizabeth and Michael"  of course you would get much less signatures per mat.

To protect the photo at the event while people are signing the mat:



You could make a copy of the photo you want, use the copy at the event

while people are signing the mat and just replace it with the original photo afterwards.


Or you could remove the foamcore and acrylic and remove the protective film from both sides of the acrylic then tape the picture to the back of the acrylic so that it lines up with the opening of the mat. the mat will go in the frame first then the acrylic with your picture taped to the back then the foamcore, this will protect your photo while people sign the mat.
