We have some used mats (and matching matboard backing) that are not standard size but are within Photo Challenge limits if anybody is interested. They are free.
It is customary for the mat to overlap the photo by ¼" on each edge, so that for the first mat below, for example, your image would need to be at least 10¾"x16". I haven't had any problem with a 1/8" overlap, however, especially if our photo is not borderless.

A couple of years ago, I bought a box of 100 large 9-mil Nitrile Powder-free Exam Gloves (from Amazon for $15.27) to replace the white cotton gloves I had been using while printing and matting. (Nitrile is supposed to be more effective at protecting your work from whatever you were wearing the cotton gloves for. So far I have no reason to doubt it.) According to their size chart (shown below), I needed a medium, but I bought a large anyway because that's what usually works for me. They were too tight. Because of my "frugality", it took me two years to order the correct size (XL). I still have almost half of the original box left (24 pairs).
Although I'm not selling my new XL gloves, if you want to see how they fit for future reference, you can have a pair of those (again, only one pair per customer). Just let me know.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
I just published another blog article (What's Wrong With This Picture (Version 2)?) soliciting comments on this picture. If you comment below and don't say otherwise, I may copy your remarks onto our blog. You've got at least a couple weeks before I give away the answer.
