As good as your weakest point

Your artwork, just like almost anything in life, is as good as its weakest point.  You must be careful to make an even investment and avoid skimping on a valuable category, in order to maximize return on investment.  Good frame, good matting, good glazing (glass), good craftsmanship, and good care-taking = good appraisal valuation and good return on investment.  Slight any one of these categories and it could spell doom for your investmentPay for it once, do it right, and take it to real professionals.

Discussion

Mat burn creates a darkening edging around where the window of the mat was, but can also darken any area in contact with an acidic mat. Poor quality mats are created from paper with heavy wood pulp content, which is chemically unstable and acidic. As the mat ages, the wood pulp decomposes, releasing acid which migrates to absorbent paper below. Displaying and storing works in archival quality mats containing no wood pulp can mitigate this kind of damage.
