Mat Board

We offer thousands of conservation grade mat board varieties, including Lignan-free and Acid Free, along with standard wood pulp mat board.

  • Museum Mat Board: These Conservation Grade mats are Acid Free and Lignan-free. They are buffered pH neutral to eliminate the acidic nature, and additionally treated to remove lignan, a compound that contributes to discoloration.
  • Conservation Mat Board: Another conservation option that has been treated to be Acid Free, though it is not Lignan-free.
  • Regular Mat Board: Standard wood pulp matboard, serving a functional role as a spacer between the art and glass, and serving a decorative role by accentuating your art.

Mount Board:  We also offer mount board varieties, including Acid Free foamcore, Regular foamcore, and Gatorboard in both white and black varieties.
