The 16 x 20" 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. Conservation mat board is more economical than traditional cotton paper with the same long-term stability.

These acid and lignin-free boards use alkaline or neutral sizing. The boards are buffered with calcium carbonate for added protection and longer life. Pearl white has a warmer tonality than bright white museum board and less yellow than antique white.

Thickness 4-ply
Quantity 25 boards
Dimensions 16.0 x 20.0" (40.64 x 50.8 cm)

B&H online purchase website is seamless and makes it easy to find and order a product. The order was confirmed within a few minutes. It shipped the next day and arrived on scheduled date, packaged well and in excellent condition.

The Pearl White Mat Board is excellent neutral hue of white, mats are impeccably sized and easy to cut. Pricing is competitive and somewhat less than I have been paying a different supplier who is now out of business. I wish I had thought to search B&H earlier for this product.

I got these for a photography class and after I mounted my prints I stuck them back in the box they came in. The next day they bowed a little and made presenting them awkward. Just be careful with them and maybe get a portfolio box.

            These Archival Methods 4-Ply Conservation mat boards are excellent quality and neutral in color, thereby complementing the art or photography. The material is sturdy and cuts cleanly. Since it is archival quality there is no concern regarding potential damage to the matted artwork or photography. This is an excellent product to provide that museum or gallery presentation.

                          Very easy to work with. Cut easily and easy to work with. Color very close to the "gallery white" of a different brand of mat I had used before.
