Preparing prints for exhibition

Post by Laurie White, Print Secretary

how-to-frame-pictures-like-pro-7I would like to help and encourage new members to enter our Print of the Month, this is a good way to start showing your work in a more relaxed and less formal way than the Exhibition’s. You can receive some positive feedback as well as comparing your photography against other club members.

Producing a print is relatively easy as there are a number of businesses in Dunedin which will print an acceptable photo. The following are all being used by club members: Mint Gallery (Moray Place) good for doing Archival prints, Pro Lab (Moray Place), Harvey Norman, Warehouse Stationary, Photo Warehouse.

In Dunedin the following will cut your mat and backing foam board to suit The Framing Studio (South Dunedin), Art Zone (Hanover Street), The Framers Room (Dowling Street), Neville Studios (Crawford Street), although best prices are probably found by buying online at: Framing Online or Factory Frames.

If you would like to make your own mats, buy mat board and foam backing from Southern Paper Products (Main Road Fairfield) and Logan mat cutters from Gordon Harris.

To get you started I can supply your first mat, hinged with foam backing for a special price of $7.00. You can talk to me at most club nights re further info.
