At NEOMODERN we have a signature station with a number of writing instruments. Signing your work is actually important. It's part of the personalization of your project. Most photographers sign their work on the paper below the image. Artists are divided, however, on whether to display that signature or not—there are ample examples of each. And we offer both options in the matting: space for a visible signature, or none.
It's certainly more modest to hide your signature under the mat.
An invisible note is intriguing
You can hide many things under the mat: A little message of love from parents to their newborn child. Written and sealed into the frame, perhaps not to be discovered for years... decades... it could be like a buried treasure, to be revealed at some long distant time. A time capsule found by your descendants. Or maybe it's much closer. Perhaps it becomes an object of family lore: your newborn knows to open the frame on her 21st birthday. Or 50th. You can put a secret here. A poem. We give you space and materials to do this before we frame. It creates an object like no other.
