Do you sign your print

Re: mat and frame are temporary

This is an answer more at the collector level but most museum grade archival methods of framing specify that the artwork can be completely removed from the framing package. The reason for this is that over time (many years) the mat and backing will get contaminated and museums or collectors may want to change them with new materials. At the opposite end of the spectrum there is the consumer that wants a mat that matches the sofa. In either case the mat you provided may be discarded.

Perfectly fine to sign the mat, but I would also sign the print since it just takes a few more seconds. If you have no border on the print I would sign it on the back. If someone doesn't want to see your signature you can tell them you would be happy to swap the mat out with a clean one.
