Picture Frame Backing Board

We offer 12 types of backing board. These products are used as a backing for your picture or as a mounting board.
  • (FCreg)&(FCregThin) Foam core (3/16" or 1/8" thick) is strong, lightweight, rigid and versatile. Its paper surface has a double-clay coating that yields an ultra-smooth finish. Use on inexpensive poster art. It comes in two sizes in case you need it thinner.
  • (FCaf)&(FCafThin) Bainbridge Artcare acid free foam (3/16" or 1/8" thick) has all the great qualities of regular foam core along with the best acid free qualities on the market. It has a patented technology that traps gases and acids. It costs us 20% extra to bring you this acid free foam instead of other acid free boards but we believe it is worth the small extra expense. Use on originals, photos and things you want to last. It comes in two sizes in case you need it thinner. Visit Nielsen-Bainbridge.com for more information. Cream color.
  • (FCblk) Black Acid Free Foam core (3/16" thick) is a regular acid free board. It does not have the Artcare technology of the cream colored board. Use when you need the black color for your mounts.
  • (Cardb) Cardboard (3/16" thick) two flat liners and one inner fluted corrugated medium.
  • (BB4plyP) Paper Mat 4ply (1/16" thick) is a Crescent Berkshire mat. This board is an inexpensive board that still offers a buffered core & backing paper. Due to possible warping this board is not a good backing board unless it is backed for artwork 12x16 and below.
  • (BB4plyC) Conservation Mat 4ply (1/16″ thick) is a Crescent Select mat. This board meets the conservation standards of the library of congress. It will protect your art & prints. Due to possible warping this board is not a good backing board unless it is backed for artwork 12x16 and below. The select mat board has also passed the Photographic Activity Test P.A.T.
  • (GF) Gator foam 3/16" is a durable lightweight board used to mount photographs as well as other media. It consists of a core of polystyrene foam bonded on both sides with wood fibers impregnated with resin. This provides durability and rigidity as well as moisture resistance. This is the number one board used in the graphics industry. It has a very smooth, flat and hard surface.
  • (FcAf4PlyC) Bainbridge Artcare acid free foam core and Crescent select 4 ply mat board. This combination is what we use for the highest level of preservation in our frame shops. A museum with a very valuable piece might wish to substitute a 100% rag (cotton) mat board in place of the alpha cellulose archival board. Tradition and hundreds of years of experience have demonstrated the long lasting nature of cotton papers; however the Library of Congress has tested the alpha cellulose boards and lists them as a fully archival board. The Crescent select boards have also passed the Photographic Activity Test P.A.T.
