It only makes sense that you'd want to display your engagement photos in the most beautiful and flattering ways. That goal can be easily accomplished by presenting them in matte board frames. But what is matte board, and what makes it ideal for showing off engagement pictures? Below are answers to these questions and more with an introduction to matte board.
Matte Board: What It Is
Matte board is a type of picture framing that sits within the larger, more traditional frame. It is a heavy piece of paper stock that rests immediately below the glazing, but above the photo or artwork being presented. Visually, matte board frames the image, adding further dimension and borders that provide more depth and focus to the displayed material. You can choose from a variety of colors when selecting matte board to complement your images, though in most situations people often choose white, off-white, or cream-colored mattes.
The benefits of matte board aren't limited to the aesthetic. They protect the image as well. By creating a barrier between the displayed material and the glazing, the image is safeguarded from potentially corrosive elements that could slowly damage the image.
Why It's Ideal for an Engagement Party
A couple who has recently gotten engaged wants to celebrate their love and their future together. Engagement photos commemorate this momentous occasion in the lives of each partner, and matte board effectively displays and protects those photographs. When presenting the pictures at an engagement party, guests' attention will be drawn to the striking quality of the photos that are accentuated by matte board framing. It is another method of making meaningful images even more memorable and attractive. You can be confident that these photos will last for the long haul secure in their matte board frames.
