Choosing the Correct Mat Orientation for Your Photo
When ordering Professional Engraving for your Engravable Signature Mat, you will need to decide what orientation your picture will be. This will dictate where the engraved text will be placed. Typically, a vertically oriented picture is best for photos of two persons.
If you do not have the picture yet, be sure to tell your photographer the orientation you have chosen for your mat.
Select Horizontal if the picture you plan to frame is wide.
