  • 100% Cotton Fiber
  • Acid and Lignin-Free
  • Buffered with Calcium Carbonate
  • Protects Prints from Pollutants
  • Made in USA

Archival Methods 4-Ply Bright White 100% Cotton Museum Board contains 25 boards that measure 11 x 14" each. The board is a high-quality mat board used for many fine print and document projects. Whether for traditional print or digital technology, this board will provide a solid, acid-free backing that is perfect for display purposes. It can also be used for small mat cutting where, for example, a 2-ply board will provide a 1/32" separation between the work and the glazing.  

Your best print deserves the best mount possible. Presentation is half the battle and Archival Methods gives you the way to show off your best work. This is quality board designed for archival display.

For window mats and mat backing, Archival Methods recommends a thickness of 4-Ply, which creates a 1/16" separation between artwork and glazing and provides a flat, supportive backing

                  Brilliant white. Perfect. High quality construction. Archival. What more can a guy ask for? If you are looking for pure white, this is the stuff. Don't buy pearl white, because it is slightly yellowed (which is ok, if that is what you want...).

                      This mat board has a quality look to it that is sure to enhance your art or photographs. I use it to mount and mat my photographs that I sell in a gallery.[...].I cut my own mats and found this matboard to fray slightly at the cut-line which required a nail file to smooth out. When cutting this matboard, make sure you have a very sharp, fresh razor blade installed to minimize the fraying.

                          The boards are great for use as a backing for my photographs when either selling them framed or unframmed at a local gallery or art show. The quality is very good. They were well packaged and arrived in good shape despite the box being badly damaged.
