Hummingbird Studios prints are uniquely displayed in 8x10 and 11x14 double mats, utilizing a spacing technique which creates a pleasing, modified three dimensional "shadow box" effect. (In our web site illustrations, this effect is more noticeable in our ivory matted prints than those matted in black.)
The concept for our shadow box mats arose from a desire to provide attractively matted prints, available "ready-to-frame and ready-to-go," for home décor, office accents, and all occasion gifts.
In doing so, we wanted to offer photo art displayed in a manner which was tasteful, unique, and superior to the uninspiring "flat" mats which characterize most photographs on the market.
Additionally, we wanted to showcase our prints in a double-mat which would produce a clean and simple shadow box effect.
Finally, we wanted to offer our customers a product that was easy to frame at a reasonable cost. The idea for a modified three dimensional shadow box mat ensued.
Because we wanted frame selection to remain an uncomplicated and budget friendly process, we needed a mat with modified spacing between upper and lower sections. We decided to offer mat sizes in two standard dimensions, and with two basic colors that would harmonize with general decorating schemes
