Picture frame matting is a colorful material that accentuate your artwork and separate it from the glass or acrylic. Our mats are all made by Crescent Paper Company. The mats we sell are:
Economy Mat Boards (Crescent Berkshire): This mat board is a low cost mat board that is about half the cost of acid free mats. These mats are not acid free mats. They are what furniture framing companies use for production framing.
Acid Free Conservation Archival Mat Boards (Crescent Select): This mat board option is an acid free mat board. These mats are safe to use on original fine art. They are safe to come in contact your fine art work.
8 Ply Acid Free (Crescent Conservation Solid): These mats are in our Picture mat bundles section. If you need 8 Ply mats custom sizes call us at 1-800-410-5429.
You can see below that we sell our mats in a few different ways so that you can get them any way you need. The most common way to purchase mats is through the visualizer. This is a step by step wizard that allows you to custom order mats.The mat bundles are great if you are shopping for some of the most common ready-made sizes. They are package deals in our most common colors and they are priced great. You can also order full sheets of mats (32x40). Samples of mats are available as well. We have made every effort to make the mat board colors look as close as we can to their true colors but they are not perfect because everyone's monitor colors come across a bit different. There are over a million whites in the world so showing you the subtle differences online is impossible. If you need to make sure about the mat board colors before you order please see our mat board samples page.
