Item details

Museum quality acid-free mats to display your work to it's finest. Made with Bainbridge Alphamats, an archival board that the Library of Congress trusts to preserve and showcase historical documents and art.

These high-alpha cellulose mats are lignin-free and will not yellow, turn brittle or cause damage to your images, unlike cheap imported mats. Their Zeolite construction actually absorbs acid over time, keeping your valuable work in pristine condition. Use for matting photography, original artwork, certificates, awards, posters and digital prints.

Mats will fit into any standard 18x24 frame. Pack of 5 pieces. Images just shown to highlight mats, mats are empty.

Choice of a 11" x 14", 12" x 16", 12" x 18" or 13" x 19" window. All windows are cut 1/8" smaller on each side as a standard allowance, to let the edges of the matting cover your image slightly, giving a clean, professional appearance.

Choose one of twelve different colors or mix and match (leave a note for the owner on how many of each color(s) you would like to make up the 10 piece pack). Color selection:

* Spanish White - Bright white, with a smooth texture.
* French White - Warmer off white, with a hint of texture.
* White/Black Core - Bright textured white, with a solid black core for window bevel highlights.
* Cream (Antique) - Muted warm, smooth cream color.
* Ivory Black/Black Core - Deep black mat, with a solid black core for dark window bevels.
* Ivory Black/White Core - Deep black mat, with a bright white core for dramatic highlights.
* Mist Light Gray - A subtle, light grey, great for B&W photography.
* Photo Gray - A totally neutral middle gray, leaning neither cool nor warm.
* Charcoal Gray - Warm, dark gray, not as intense as black.
* Chocolate Brown - Deep, earthy brown, perfect for landscapes and Southwest images.
* Mocha Tan - Mellow, subtle grayish-tan.
* Sage Green - Dark, grayish-green, excellent for nature images.
