From museum professionals and artists to art collectors and beyond, anyone serious about displaying and protecting artwork and other valuable pieces knows that preservation quality matters. It’s one of the many reasons why American Frame proudly partners with Peterboro Matboards, a highly experienced innovator in mat board production.
Peterboro White Museum 8 Ply Mat Board
This bright white, 8-ply museum mat features a continuous color core. Made from 100% pure cotton pulp, this mat features top-to-bottom cotton fiber to provide extra strength and rigidity. It exceeds the most stringent standards for stability and permanence set by the Professional Picture Framers Association and the Fine Art Trade Guild.
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.
When displaying multiple pieces in a single framing treatment, multi-opening mat boards can be customized and sized to your exact specifications.
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.
