March Newsletter: We have mats! …and they’re on sale too

During our bags and boxes sale, we often get those that say, “Bags and boxes are great, but what I really need are mats and backing!” We hear you. Photographers rejoice because this month we are putting all our pre-cut mats, backing, Moab inkjet paper, canvas gallery wraps, and mounting accessories on sale. Take 10% off any of these items for the entire month of March (see details below).

Here’s a tip

When it comes to packaging it’s better to measure your product twice and order once rather than having to send back the wrong size of bags or boxes. We have thousands of stock sizes and styles of packaging, with some only fractions of an inch different than others.

When looking for the right size of flat bag, the general rule of thumb is to add the depth and width of your product together and make that the width of your bag (e.g., If you have a product that is 5” wide and 1” deep, find a bag at least 6” wide). When ordering a bag with a gusset, or when ordering a box, we provide the depth measurement for you (e.g., W x D x L). You can match that up directly with the depth of your product(s).

Once you have your measurements and think you know what you might need, take advantage of our free sampling program. You can order up to three items at no expense to you (we will even cover the shipping cost). We will send out those samples right away so you can try your product in the bag and make whatever small adjustments you might need.

So, remember, “measure twice, order once.” Taking time to carefully measure will pay off in the end.
