Custom matting means so much more than choosing a color from a stack of mat samples at Colbert Custom Framing & Art Printing. With its custom art printing services, the 33-year-old Naperville company can create custom colors, custom imagery/text, and custom patterns that bring true uniqueness to matted artwork.
Stephanie Colbert Randall, third-generation owner, and her staff love to get creative with client’s projects by printing custom art that becomes custom matting. “Individuals and businesses get a kick out of how custom their framing project can be with our custom matting capabilities,” said Colbert Randall.
Custom colors – Colbert’s can create that just-right mat color if it doesn’t already exist in the matboard sample set. The color is printed as an art print, fused to a matboard, then used as a mat for the framing project. Have fun with color!
Custom text and imagery – Want to incorporate a logo, text, or special imagery in the matting? When permission can be obtained for a licensed logo/image or when public domain imagery is used, the possibilities for design are endless!
Custom patterns – Matting can resemble parchment paper, tin foil, dirt, or any other patterns that would be a fun design choice for any project. Distinct personality is possible with Colbert’s ability to print custom patterns as matting to give a special style to any framing project.
Colbert Custom Framing & Art Printing is open by appointment and ready to act on your special projects. All work is done in-house from start to finish. “We take care of everything from beginning to end to make the process creative, smooth, and enjoyable,” said Colbert Randall.
