Changes in Our Acid-free Mat Boards

You’ll notice some changes to some of our Alphamat Artcare matboards. Our manufacturer is making some alterations to their current mat board names and product numbers. We want to carry the best selection we can for our customers, so we’re making the change too.

The good news is that these are the same colors that we carried before, but with better boards that now have art care technology, offered at the same great prices. “Nielsen Bainbridge Artcare™ products offer industry-leading protection for art and photos. Only Artcare products contain patented micro-chambers that proactively trap and neutralize harmful gases that can cause fading, yellowing and deterioration.”

Here is a complete conversion chart to make the transition easier. Simply reference this chart to see which new number and color matches our previous numbers:
