Bleed Print framing Q

I just completed a new drypoint which is a bleed print (printed right to the edge of the paper) The print is very dark so I wont be signing on the front of the print but the back. I am planning to frame the print floating on a mat (no window cut) with the glass spaced so it wont touch the print. I have some rice paste for sticking it down using acid free paper hinges. Would this be the best way to do it or do you have other suggestions. No signature or title or date or edition no. will be visible, should I put this on the dust cover at the back of the frame too?
Thanks Annamie

Re: Bleed Print framing Q

I think your idea an excellent one. I've done that, with two small hinges. It makes for a stunning presentation, especially if the paper edges are deckled or rough.

You might want to put the print info on the mat board, in the usual place just below the print. But putting the info on the back is certainly acceptable. I always include a certificate of authenticity with my framed prints, tucked into a small cello bag and taped to the back.

I agree with Diane. Your mat will work well. This is how photographers sign their work.
