But… to anyone thinking of doing a signature mat… PLEASE… leave the frame around it. Just take out the glass and put the framing package together.
I work in custom framing and I frame many of these and someone is ALWAYS signing the edges of the mat. The frame lip (rabbet) will cover about 1/4″ all the way around the mat, so any signatures next to the edges will be covered by the frame. By leaving the frame on it, then no one will be tempted to sign near the edges..
very good point! My frame broke at the last minute! =(
