Wherein Paul walks us through how to prepare your prints for inclusion in the Print Shop
For many of you that have submitted art to a Print Shop before, you can probably skip this tutorial. But if this is your first time to participate in a Print Shop, you may want to read ahead for a few pointers on how to prepare your prints.
All artwork that is submitted to the Art Show's Print Shop must be bagged and boarded or “bagged and backed,” as it is often called by art shows. This helps protect your artwork as people handle it. While all prints must be bagged and backed to be accepted into our Print Shop, you are free to decide if you would like to mat them as well, or not. That part is up to you.
