The Acid-Free Foamboard 10-pack from Archival Methods is used as a backing board for framing. Each board is 1/8" thick, making it suitable for many frame profiles. Because of the thinness of the board, a frame package less than 3/8" can be created. This archival grade board is acid and lignin-free and contains a 3% buffering agent to maintain an alkaline pH.

The corners of the board were wrinkled up a little bit. Would be a issue with a 13x19 print
I always trust B & H products for quality and value.
Exactly what I was shopping for to mount my 13 X 19 prints.
I bought this to protect archival pigment prints that I use cotton rag substrates for. I also usually have large amounts of black or dark backgrounds in my images. I keep them in protective archival black boxes until I ship them. These boards shed little pieces of white material all over the place! I discovered this by the pieces inside the black box, and on the surface of my prints which were rendered unusable with permanent marks in the matte black spaces. If I were to use the board as a backing in a frame, there would be white particles that would be extremely hard to remove, too. I’m sure most of you know how expensive Epson matte black inks are, so don’t risk it! It may be the way the manufacturer cuts the boards, but they’re way too expensive to be this way. Not happy with my purchase at all.
I use it to protect prints.
When I need to stuff a stack of prints into my suitcase, I place foam board on the top and bottom of the stack and tie the whole package together so nothing slips. That protects the edges and corners from getting banged up. It's lightweight and tough for this use. This 1/8 inch size is easy to cut to size on my Rotatrim cutter and strong enough to protect the prints.
