Ok I know it's probably in the wrong section , but I deal with most of you here and always welcome your comments and thoughts. I sent some prints to someone I know that asked for a few and wanted them signed. I got an acrhival pen and signed the print itself. He told me next time to sign the bottom or the print or the matt in pencil. Well they weren't matted but I also think of signing the mat anyone can take the mat off a print than what, your signature is not present.

Just curious to your thoughts on this should you sign the print directly or leave it be? Sign it just enough so if someone does put a mat around it , it doesnt cover your signature?

Its your art. Its your decision. Personally, I think it depends on the work of art. If the signature distracts the viewer than its in the wrong location. Most of the time, I think it adds to the work and it is incomplete without it.

Thats what I would think on the print down in the corner wouldnt take away from it. You see people who paint and draw sign their stuff right on the print or painting but I am getting different feedback from all this.

i always sign the mat.* if someone requests or purchases a photo from me, i give it to them matted and signed. if it's used for publication then i submit a photo unmatted, unsigned and request a photo credit. i don't know if there are right or wrongs here but that's the way i do it .
