Hand-Made Paper Invitation (left)

This lovely wedding invitation is made of hand-made paper with an actual blue died leaf embedded in the fibers and caligraphy with blue ink. We've floated it on a blue silk backing without a mat but with spacers to support the glass away from the delicate paper.

Wedding Invitation with White Ribbon

The ribbon on this invitation made it quite three dimensional. We used a triple layer mat: The top layer mat is a hand-wrapped white silk, elevated to allow room for the depth of the bow. Below that is a reddish brown silk mat and beneath that is a bright white acid free mat. The frame is by Larson Juhl in European Silver.

Engaged couple make promises for their future. Framed with a silk fabric mat cut with stars, scraps of notebook paper floated on metallic matting, a Bella silver shimmery frame, Optium Museum Acrylic for clearest view and protection.

Celtic Wedding Invitation

This wedding invitation was decorated with a Celtic Knot motif so we chose a silver leafed frame with a linking pattern and repeated the reddish-brown undertone of the frame in the hand-wrapped silk mat, along with a golden silk undermat.

Wedding Invitation
With Hand Designed Mat Cut Outs
Underpainting & Glitter Frame

This unusual wedding invitation was designed by the bride and groom to blend the flags and national colors from their two native countries, Brazil and the United States. They wanted something unconventional, eye catching and decorative to frame their innovative design.

A metallic silver top mat was selected with a dark blue under mat for the two rectangular openings. A heart shape was cut into the mat to outline the design of the invitation. On each side of the mat is a scroll work cut out with a hand painted water color wash beneath, showing a gradient blend of the national colors. The frame itself is a glittering midnight blue.

Wedding Invitation With Three Opening Mat

The bride chose a casual wedding party photograph for this framed wedding momento using a sepia toned snap shot of the wedding party. We chose a brown matting to complement the phogograph and ink color, along with a gerometic Italian import Roma Moulding Baso series silver leaf frame with a burnished brown base. The top circular opening holds the solar wedding emblem from the envelope, which is seen again with its lunar counterpart in the invitation itself.


Wedding Photo

Wedding photos can be made into family treasures with the right framing. The above is only one example of the many types of Specialty Mats that we can cut for photographs. Photographs can also be printed on canvas and stretched for that "hand painted portrait" look.
