Window Shape Mat Templates

On this page you will find several examples of shaped mats along with a library of Wizard shaped mat templates from which to choose. We don't include a shopping cart for our mats because each mat is a unique creation. Instead, we invite you to send us an e-mail or give us a call in Berkeley, California at (510) 849-4444. We'll find out exactly what you have in mind, and we will design and cut your mat to order. We can usually ship within 2-3 working days.Original designs may take a bit longer. We like hearing from you personally and we will give you great service in return. If you see a mat that you would like to duplicate from another page on our site, we can cut that as well. We can help you combine templates, cut art, and V-Grooves for a unique, customized mat. You can also send us a photo of your art for personal design advice. Finally, we invite you to send us your art for matting and framing. We take great care with packaging, and your framed piece will be delivered to you safely. Make sure to view each of the specailty mat pages linked from this page for more examples, ideas, and sample prices. Prices listed may vary with the complexity of each mat.

When you call or e-mail, please have the following information ready:

  • What is the image size of your art or photo?
  • Do you want to show any of the paper around your art
    or photo (called a "reveal") and if so how much?
  • What size will the window of your mat be?
  • What will the overall or outside size of your mat be?
  • Will your mat need to fit in a ready-made frame?
  • What Template would you like?
  • What mat colors would you like?

    Remember, we are here to help you with all your design choices!
