Matted Prints for Photographers: Matting Layouts with Various Sizes and Configurations are Available!

Matted Prints for photographers from Zno, also known as Passe-Partout, are fully assembled with thick archival museum-grade mats. Previously, we introduced the Unlimited RGB Colors Mat option for our Matted Prints, offering unparalleled customization. Now, we’re excited to unveil yet another update to our Matted Prints lineup: a diverse selection of matting layouts with various sizes and configurations.

What is a Matting Layout?

A matting layout defines how a photograph is bordered and surrounded by mats, enhancing its presentation without using a frame.

Zno’s Upgraded Matted Prints for Photographers

Zno now offers an enhanced selection of matted prints, allowing photographers with even more customization options for photo layout print. Here, we’re excited to announce that our matted prints now support 22 different layout designs, catering to a wider range of preferences and needs.





Why it Matters?

Matting layouts play a crucial role in enhancing the presentation of photographs, offering photographers a way to customize the look and feel of their prints. Here’s why matting layouts matter:

Enhanced Presentation

Matting layouts create a border around the photograph, drawing attention to the image and framing it within a visually pleasing context. This enhances the overall presentation of the photograph, making it more visually appealing to viewers.

Versatility & Customization

Different matting layouts allow photographers to personalize their prints according to their preferences and artistic vision. Whether it’s a single mat for a minimalist look or multiple mats for added depth and dimension, photographers can choose the layout that best complements their style. With a diverse selection of matting layouts available, photographers have the flexibility to experiment with different sizes, configurations, and designs. This versatility allows for creative expression and enables photographers to tailor photo layout for printing to specific themes or contexts.


Mats serve a protective function by creating a barrier between the photograph and the external environment. They help prevent damage from handling, moisture, and other environmental factors, ensuring the longevity of the print.

How to Choose the Right Sizes and Configurations?

Consider Standard Sizing

Many photographers add around 1/2″ to 2″ of matting around their photos. This standard sizing is popular because it effectively enhances the presentation of the artwork without overwhelming it or distracting the viewer. It allows the artwork to remain the centerpiece while providing a subtle framing element that adds color and space.

Evaluate Proportion

When choosing the size of the matting, consider the proportion between the mat and the artwork. A mat that is too narrow may not provide enough visual separation between the artwork and the frame, while a mat that is too wide may overpower the artwork. Aim for a balance that complements the size and style of the photograph.

Consider Oversized Mats for Impact

If you want to make a bold statement with a smaller piece of art, consider using an oversized mat. Bigger mat borders have a gallery-like appearance and can draw attention to your artwork, especially when displayed on larger walls.

Explore Weighted Bottoms

Opt for a weighted bottom design where the bottom margin of the mat is taller than the top and sides. This style adds elegance and sophistication to your matted artwork, elevating its overall presentation.
