Protecting Your Work Just Got Easier


Your work isn’t just important to you. It’s important to us, too. So we’re taking extra steps to make preserving it easier than ever within our ordering system.
Now, when you design a custom frame package, the default mat and mounting board will be acid-free and conservation-quality instead of our General Purpose line of products.

We made this change to evolve with the changing demands of our professional clients who expect their work to remain pristine for years to come, offering maximum protection from harmful gasses and pollutants.
The default mat board is now the Bainbridge Alphamat Artcare Mat Board in Ice White. This bright white, 4-ply mat has a smooth surface with a cool undertone and a white core. It’s conservation quality, archival, made of alpha cellulose fibers, and features Artcare™ technology to protect the art or photography from pollutants. It is also 100% acid and lignin-free throughout. 

For the default mounting board, we’ve chosen our Archival Mounting Board. It’s a smooth, off-white 100% acid-free backing board that is 1/8" thick. This mounting board is designed to support your work within the frame and can enhance the look and longevity of your photography or artwork.

If, for any reason, you prefer general purpose mats and mounting boards, simply switch the default products to the general purpose products when designing your custom frame kit.
