how can i cover my custom sized photogrpahic prints sustainably ? Answered

I am interested in selling photo prints in galleries as well as online. I would like to present these prints as tidily as possible and so need some kind of display cover as well as cardboard backing. Can anyone tell me how I could create or order these covers from eco friendly materials (like biodegradable) and also if there are uk sources for strong cardboard. Thanks for your help.

If the prints aren't too large, you might be able to cut a mat from recycled mat board and use a sheet of corn plastic cut from a large clamshell food container to cover the opening. You should be able to find the mat board at any art supplier, and the clamshell boxes are popular with vegan/vegetarian shops and organic grocers, at least here in the US. I assume that the same would be true for the UK.
