How Do I Order Mat Board Samples

This month’s theme has been all about mat board. There is one very important thing to note about mat board colors: they don’t always look the same in real life as they do on a computer monitor, even if you are working from a calibrated monitor. While we do recommend always working from a calibrated monitor when color is a critical factor, it’s not always a guarantee. The lighting, photography and monitor display play an important role in how the colors appear. We always want you to be satisfied with the products you receive and for that reason we offer the option to order mat board samples. The first 5 samples are free.

Ordering mat board samples is easier than ever with our new website.

Follow along as we walk through the steps:

1. On the homepage, hover over the “picture frame accessories” tab and click on “mat board”

2. On the mat board page, the mats are separated out by category (general purpose, acid free, conservation, 6 ply, 8 ply, etc.) Choose the appropriate category.
