Two years ago, I scheduled a couple of presentations on how to put together your prints for the Salon. I have had requests to do them again. This year I will be taking a different approach. 

We will start with an early Saturday morning presentation about prints and some of the issues to consider when printing your prints.  This information will be useful for the salon or printing for other purposes.  Print material, calibration, sending prints out or DIY will be covered.

There are various ways to mat your prints. You will be a way to view and select possible mats for the Salon and other occasions.  To complete your matting process, we will cover some of the options that you may consider for the Salon. 

I will show you how to save some money for the Salon by using an ordinary trash bag. 

This will be a classroom style presentation where you will be provided with lots of information that you will be able to use for prints you enter in the Salon or decide to frame yourself. 

You do not need to bring any prints or mats with you.  Just bring something for good notes.  Some of the information will be presented on the screen.  You will have time to ask questions so that you will be prepared to select your prints for the Salon and how you want to mat them.

If you are curious about printing but have hesitated on taking that step, this is your chance to learn more. I may not have all the answers to your questions, but I may be able to point you in the right direction.

I will be able to show you how to hang a print in a mat that can be framed, and your print will hang forever without wrinkling.   I will not be covering all the aspects of framing, but you can find that information online.    

By the end of presentation, you should know how to get your images ready for print and matting with enough time to prepare for Salon entries later this year.  You may be able to use some of the information to frame your prints for yourself, family, and friends.
