Michigan Science Art offers the option of having your purchase professionally matted and/or framed. Once you choose which animal(s) you want to purchase, your shopping cart will ask you if you’d like this option.

If you order artwork matted but not framed, it will be matted to fit either an 8 x 10 in. frame, an 11 x 14 in. frame, or a 14 x 18 in. frame (whichever fits the image size best).

If you order artwork matted and framed, the mat and frame size will be whatever looks best with the image – not necessarily a standard size. All framed pieces are shipped with plexiglass for safety.

Matting:
The purpose of matboard is threefold:
1) To protect your purchase from fingerprints
2) To prevent your puchase from touching the glass in a frame. If condensation ever forms inside your frame, the moisture on the glass will ruin your artwork if it there is not a mat there to prevent contact.
3) To provide an area of neutral space between the image and the frame.

We use conservation-quality matboard and an archival backing.
All artwork is matted with a neutral color mat that will look best with the artwork. In most cases, it will match the color of the paper. Artwork that has a colored background will come with a mat color most suited to that piece, but not necessarily matching the background. Most prints have a white background and so will come with a matching white mat (Crescent 1613). If you have a particular request for a matboard color, please let us know when you place your order and we will do our best to accommodate.
