From Porcelain and Pure to Polar, Frost, Ice, Igloo and every tint of white in between, there’s an entire palette of white hues to explore when choosing a mat board for your custom framing project. White may be the most popular shade of matting, but any artist or color professional will tell you that there’s nothing basic about this neutral shade.
The best matboard for your framing project? Peterboro museum matboard, of course.
Mat board made of cotton – “rag” board – is multiple layers, or plies, of cotton board that have been color dyed and combined in 4-ply, or 8-ply versions.
Custom mats for frames aren't always needed, but they're always worth serious consideration.
