The 11 x 14" Archival Methods 4-Ply Pearl White Conservation Mat Board contains 25 boards designed for artwork, photographs and documents. The board is made of alpha-cellulose pulp from purified wood fiber and has a similar surface to mat board made from cotton pulp.

        Comments about Archival Methods 4-Ply Pearl White Conservation Mat Board (11 x 14", 25 Boards):

        I ordered this product for a class I am taking and it has worked great. I would consider this a standard thickness, so if you want something thin or thick choose a different ply. I feel it's worth the cost to buy pre-cut sizes rather than cut down large boards.

                        I bought a pack of this matboard to try out and see how I liked it. It seems to meet all archival requirements as compared to Bainbridge Alpha Rag, which I believe is the gold standard. Nice surface color and texture for the "white", which is all I've tried. This is more like an eggshell white in tone, which is very complimentary for my black and white print style. I won't look further for additional colors and sizes.

                            Especially students, you should buy mat boards early so there are plenty in stock and you don't have to wait.
