To Matte or Not to Matte

In a few hours, I'm headed to the local teacher store to laminate some posters that I had made. I found them on a free print-a-poster website and enlarged them to 11x17 and had them printed for 98 cents at Office Depot.

Now I have to decide if I want to matte them with construction paper to "frame" them. That's where you come in :) Help me decide...

To Matte:


Or Not to Matte:


Is the question - leave your answer in the comments!! :) Thanks!

What about a black matte? I personally prefer black paper to make the poster pop. www.debrennersmith.com

Deb - I also like black, but I didn't want to go buy several packages of construction paper. I printed 37 posters yesterday so I have a lot to matte if I decide to do that....

I vote for matte. Our local teacher supply store (Education Station) has rolls of bulletin board paper that aren't too expensive - $3.99. You might get your black paper that way. But the colored paper looks good too.

I know it's too late to vote matte or not, I just wanted to say hi. I am visiting from teachers.net.

I just started my own blog and like to check out other teacher blogs.
