non-photo

A very pale blue that is invisible to a camera or photo­copier. A non-photo pen or pencil may be used to make notes on an original: paper may be printed with a non-photo blue grid to allow for easy line-up. In either case, as copiers become more sensitive, you should advise your customer to test these products first.

Latest Product Reviews
I love this tool! I've been painting pastel pet portraits for over 30 years, and this works great to secure the artwork in the frame with non-glare glass. It works quickly and can be removed easily if you want to change a frame.

Miater Art has good quality items with prompt delivery service. However, when inventory is low or sold out, products should be re-stocked quickly so they are available for customers to order immediately. The wait can be excessive for out of stock and back ordered items.
