Bundle and save! This bundle includes everything in our Float Matting Mockup Kit (deckle edge and straight edge print styles) and Matting Expansion Pack.  Float framing is one of our favorite ways to display our own artwork, and we especially love a deckle edge (torn paper edge!) Expand the picture frame matting style possibilities by combining the files in this kit with one of our own frame template kits (sold separately), or with frames templates you already own. The included user guide shows you how to do both.

PRODUCT FAQ

No. Our Nikati and Company Frame & Matting Mockup Kits are sold separately on our website. The stock artwork was created by other artists and is used with permission for demonstration purposes only. We source our stock artwork from pexels.com and unsplash.com, and we have noted the artists’ names if you are interested in using a particular piece of artwork in your own projects. However, please be sure to carefully read and abide by each stock artist’s and/or stock website’s own license terms as they may differ from ours.

Our mockup kits are designed to be “to scale.” The matting in the Matting Expansion Pack includes wider matting options (up to 8″ wide.) This is something that isn’t easily accomplished with the 3″ matting already included in our frame mockup kits (you can go narrower but not wider.)

We originally created our Frame + Matting Mockup Kits so we could mockup our own images and show our custom framing/matting clients exactly what their framed artwork would look like before they purchased it. So if a client requested a 12″ x 18″ print with 3″-wide forest green matting and a 1-1/4″ silver metal frame, we could mock up their request exactly to their size and color specifications. We found that the most commonly requested artwork size was 12″ on the short size (12×12, 12×18, 12×15 [8×10]), the most common matting width was 3″ or narrower, and the most commonly requested frame width was 1-1/4″ and 3/4″. So that is the sizing we used for these templates.

You can use the Photoshop software measurement tools with these templates to mockup up larger or smaller artwork to scale too. You accomplish this by changing the matting widths and/or by masking out parts of the frames to create narrower frames as needed. We later created a Matting Expansion Pack so we could create mockups for customers that wanted wider matting – something that isn’t easily accomplished with the 3″ matting already included in this mockup kit (you can easily go narrower but not wider with the 3″ matting included in this mockup kit.)

Using the Photoshop software measurement tools and creating layer masks requires slightly more advanced skills. We hope to create an instructional video that shows how to accomplish this, but in the meantime, feel free to reach out to us if you need help.

There is no need for transparency with the files in this mockup kit. The matting elements in every file cover the entire canvas, so you can place your final mockups on any color page.

If you have a basic knowledge of the Photoshop software interface and using layers, you should have no trouble creating basic mockups with this mockup kit. If you want to move your matted artwork into a frame mockup file, doing so requires a more intermediate understanding of the Photoshop software, as does employing some of the more intricate mockup customization (matting size changes for example.) However, all of our Digital Creative Tools include a very detailed user guide (written by a professional technical writer), which we think doubles as a Photoshop software tutorial! We believe you will learn a lot about the Photoshop software and be able to create more advanced mockups simply by following the steps in the user guide. We are happy to answer basic questions via email, and we also provide 1:1 post-processing coaching if you would like to take your Photoshop software skills to the next level. Please visit our Coaching page for more information.

Yes, that is the beauty of templates that use Smart Objects to place artwork, which ours do! For instance, all of the artwork you see in our product slides was in the sRGB color space when we placed it in these templates. Even if you are a beginner, the detailed user guide (included) will walk you through the steps of properly placing your artwork in a template and exporting your finished work.
