All prints must be matted for their protection using matt board available from most art suppliers and have a thin card backing.  This can be something as simple as a cornflakes box.


The total thickness of a matted print should be no more than 5mm. This includes the backing and mount board. The use of 5mm foam core is not permitted.

Do not use masking tape - this may damage other prints.  Use only the correct matting tape - Kraft Tape. Both are available from Cavalier Art Supplies.

Prints may also be mounted directly on to adhesive backing board but the maximum size of 16 x 20 inches (40 x 50cm) still applies.

If you are not sure how to proceed with presenting your prints just ask one of our club members who will happily help you out.
