Use what the pros do for backing your prints, photography, mats and greeting cards. An essential item for picture framing, Bainbridge acid-free foam core won't introduce any acid into your frame package, keeping your artwork and archival mats safe.
A useful item to keep around the studio for artwork and crafting. Foam core can be used as a base for collage and even as a drawing and painting surface. The boards are super lightweight, yet very sturdy, resisting warping. They can be cut into easily for making crafting shapes and are the preferred choice for introducing depth into shadowbox displays.
The 18" x 24" size is perfect for mounting and backing 18x24 artwork, photographs and digital prints. They will fit into our 18x24 Clear Sleeves:
We offer three choices of archival Bainbridge Foamboard:
* 1/8" - This is recommended for backing mats and artwork for gallery print bins and art fairs. Also great for including into frames with a narrow depth and for all slim profile mounts. Bright white.
* 3/16" - A more sturdy and rigid board, this has extra depth to fill deeper frames and for larger profile mounting. Great as a space filler in shadowboxes. Bright white.
* Black 3/16" - The only black acid-free foam core on the market. For dramatic mounts and backings where the edge or front of the board will remain visible. Preserves the dark, eye-catching look of black matting for matted print packages.
