  • 1Description

Galleries, museums, photographers, artists, archivists, and decorators will appreciate this 25 pack of 16 x 20" 4-Ply Pearl White Conservation Mat Boards from Archival Methods. Each board is made of alpha-cellulose pulp from purified wood fiber. An economical alternative to cotton pulp boards, Conservation boards share similar surface and cutting characteristics. Purified wood fiber is recognized as being safe to use with paper artwork, photographs, and documents. For archival use, the boards are acid- and lignin-free with alkaline or neutral sizing. In addition the boards are buffered with calcium carbonate for added protection and longer life and made without optical brightening agents. The pearl white color is characterized by a warmer tonality than bright white museum board and is less yellow than antique white.

4-Ply Pearl White Conservation Mat Board (16 x 20", 25 Boards) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will continue to purchase this product. I am a photographer and have a constant need to mount my photographs archivally and economically. I have found the 4-Ply Pearl White Conservation Mat Board to fulfill all of my expectations. It is just enough off-white to be applicable to most photographs, it is archivally rated, it is sturdy and resistant to warping, and it cuts very evenly. I researched many other boards and many other retail sources and found that this board purchased from B&H (my go-to for all photographic needs) fulfills my needs exactly and costs less than other mat boards of similar quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great service, great product 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Display Medium 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for 4-ply conservation mat board I prefer to use conservation mat board rather than foam core board as a backing for my mounted photographs. The downside, of course, is that mat board is more expensive than foam core. I've purchased from several different suppliers over the years and this is the best price I've found so far. Quick delivery is also a plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from expensive but probably worth it well, i had to buy this as the teacher insisted on four ply board....I haven't used it before.... ..the quality seems fine but not so much better than some of the cheaper stuff i've used...i guess for long term results it would be better to use the 4 ply as it will last longer?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality This mat board is easy to work with and sets up photos very nicely. However, the pearl white was misleading, as there is a slight ivory tint to the boards, which works with some of my photos but not all. I expected a whiter white or perhaps one with a slightly grey hue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boards great, packing not. I really like the boards; however, all of them came crimped on one edge. These were in conjunction with Studio Tour and I didn't have time to return and get new ones so was rather disappointed in that ...had to make work...not what I expected from B&H...
