How to Frame and Matte Pictures : How to Put the Matte, Print, & Frame Together: Picture Framing

August 26, 2019


Okay now that we’ve cleaned the glass we’re
ready to drop it into the picture frame. Okay now you get your matted picture and drop that
in there. And this is extremely tight which is good sometimes. It Awon?t move around because
once you get your picture into the frame if it’s not cut tight then it tends to move around
and it’s harder to get it centered right where you want it to be. Then you take your backing
board, your foam board, drop that in. And your next step would be to take your staple
gun and staple that in place. Let me get this down all the way. There we go. Now it should be ready. Let’s see what it
looks like. There’s your finished piece. Now you’re ready for the eyelets and the wire.

  1. Yes… if your package is fit too tight, things could warp!! leave some room!! Industry standards…. 1/8 inch allowance…. and we are not using eyelets… they pull out too easily!

  2. also…it's better to put the glass directly on the matted piece and hold it together while placing the frame on it… keeps out dust

  3. Omg this is the best video ever! My friend and I were walking up her stairs, and we knocked over a picture on the wall. It fell down the stairs, and broke into 2 parts. We hot glued the frame back together, and then we couldn't figure out how to get the glass and the picture into the frame. Thank you soooo much for this video, it saved me and my friend from being murdered!
