WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE SAMPLE PACK
1 x Ultimate Locking Mat in White
1 x Fine Art Mat in Black
1 x Standard Mat in Ivory
1 x Lustre print for testing the Ultimate Mat
Ultimate Locking Mat:
This mat is designed for lustre, glossy and metallic prints or any type of prints that are prone to slipping. Simply slide your print in from the short side of the mat and the unique locking mechanism inside will lock your print into place and ensure it doesn't slip. No glue or tape is required so it's a massive time-saver. You can also unlock the print and slide it out if you want to re-use the mat.
The Ultimate Locking Mat is available in Black, Ivory and White but the mat contained in the sample pack will be WHITE. A lustre print will also be included so you can test out the locking feature.
Fine Art Mat:
The Fine Art Mat is designed for fine art prints that tend to be thicker than regular prints and also have a naturally grippy texture. These characteristics can make it difficult to use a slip-in style mat such as our Ultimate Locking Mat and our Standard Mats. The open ended design makes it super-easy to position your fine art print and then seal the mat closed with the finger-lift tape. This mat is not designed to be re-usable.
The Fine Art Mat is available in Black, Ivory and White but the mat contained in the sample pack will be BLACK.
The Standard Mat can be used for most print types although if using a very thick fine art paper, we would recommend the Fine Art Mat instead. The Standard Mat allows the print to be slipped in from the long side of the mat. It has a different board on the back of the mat and if using with lustre, glossy or metallic prints, you may need to use something like Herma tabs to secure the print and prevent it from slipping.
The Standard Mat is available in Black, Ivory and White but the mat contained in the sample pack will be IVORY.
You can add it to your cart and simply pay the shipping.
All Done! See you at the show!

SEND YOUR BRAND SOCIAL
When you've finished your sales process, surprise your client with their very own online gallery. They'll love you for it! It allows them to share their photos quickly and easily on social media and because your details are always included, every share opens you up to potential new business.
Your client will also love the fact that they can save it as an app icon to their phone for easy access. It's a win win for everyone.
We believe that in-person print viewings are the best way to maximise your sales. We are NOT recommending that you ONLY sell products via an online gallery. Quite the opposite in fact. However, an online gallery can give you
the opportunity to extend your sales reach beyond your direct client. This can be particularly effective with newborn and family portraits where other members of the family may wish to purchase a print. Since the gallery is hooked up to a lab, you can rest assured that your prints will always be professionally produced.
Selling from the gallery is completely optional. It's super simple to turn it on or off. When a sale takes place, your portion of the sale goes straight to your Stripe account and the balance goes to us so we can pay the lab on your behalf. No waiting around for your money and no commission to pay.
