Matshop -- Picture Mats & Frames

We offer wholesale frame and mat supplies and services to fit the needs of artists, photographers, crafters, businesses, and members of the public. Matshop also offers complete printing, matting, and framing packages. Online ordering available.

Matting Artwork Tip
Using art mats: Try putting your artwork behind several different mats. It becomes readily apparent that the perception of the work changes radically with different combinations of colors. In most cases double mats will work best, but images without bright colors will often work best with a single mat.

Knitting Tip
When knitting, don't buy soft yarn; it is much harder to knit with. A tougher one will make a nice product and can be easier to use.

Craft Room Tip
I've organized my sewing/quilting area in such a way that it makes doing crafts very enjoyable. The tip is to have your sewing machine, cutting table/work surface, and serger layout in a u-shape. Then, have a large chair mat in the center of it all so that you can roll your chair from sewing machine to work surface to serger without have to even get out of your chair. It's really made crafting a lot more convenient, accessible, and fun for me.

Crochet Toy Making Tip
If there are holes in between the stitches in your crocheted toy, try going down a hook size. This will keep the fabric tight so the stuffing will stay in.

Craft Room Organization Tip
I have found that the key to any craft or art project is to be well organized and have a plan in place. This includes having your materials and tools in an organized easily accessible place so that you don't stifle or frustrate the creative process. I have converted Lazy Susan's into a turn-style with metal bins attached to the base. This allows the crafter to be able to share and gain access to the mediums.
