How to make gallery submissiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Printing & Finishing : One Thread
I'm sending work to a gallery, and am matting the prints. Once they are matted, is it normal to just put them in poly bags, or should a 1 ply archival sheet be put over the image inside the bag, or put the 1 ply between poply bags.
Is there a good book on presentation procedures?

I have to ask...Why are you sending original work to a gallery? I make copies of my matted work on to slides, then send the slides to the gallery (usually 20 slides) with a SASE. I only use original work when I have an appointment - face to face - with the gallery owner and can take my work with me when I leave.
If you must send original work, make your presentation as professional as possible. Look on the Light Impressions web page: www.lightimpressionsdirect.com. for portfolio material and books on submitting work.
