…I am in the middle of framing up my matted 16×20 inch photos for the upcoming exhibit. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am using Format frames for the job because they look good and were the least costly framing alternative, other than using framing clips. While I do like the look of the frames they are devilish to work with. First the tend to break during shipping. I get mine now from Pioneer Photo Albums. They are very good about replacing frames broken in shipment. The best thing I found when ordering the 16×20 ones is to order them in multiples of six. They are packed that way by the manufacturer and when placed inside a cushioned box for shipping, usually do pretty well. These frames are not at all like Nielsen frames or the frames I like to get from American Frame. They are in one piece and one has to pop out the glass and place the mat or photo in the frame and then pop the glass back in. So there is absolutely no wiggle room as there is with Nielsen type frames. Using a metal straight edge and a razor knife I have been able to trim down my mats so far. Some have been ever so slightly too large. If they were to be too small that would be a problem. Once the glass is popped back in the picture is ready to hang!
