    Ok, so here's the question...when mounting prints on Matte board, I had someone tell me that I should just use all white (I'm doing several prints), because no other color would look right. Do you guys agree? I was gonna do em all in black. I've never mounted any prints on matte board, so any tips and such would be helpful as well. (btw, I'm asking this for the start of my TPF print collection! I've got a nice big wall in my living room that needs filled up!)

    I have heard before about white, black and gray being good neutral colors for mattes; I personally not like plain bright white mattes, but eggshell or cream is OK IMO
