CONSERVATION, White Core, Archival, 4 Ply

GET BLACK MAT WITH WHITE CORE! Alpha Cellulose mats are paper mats that are cleaned and treated to emulate cotton rag standards. Why use Alpha Cellulose? Because they have textures you cannot get through rag and you can have mats that have a black top color and a white core or a white top color with a black core. Because of the way they are made, cotton rag mats are the same color on the top, middle and bottom. Conservation mats have been treated to remove the acid and acid producing properties.  They are buffered to help resist reacidification.  Like all archival quality mats, they use pigmented inks that have a much longer life than water based dyes used in Standard mats.  They are made with 100% virgin Alpha Cellulose...they do not use recycled material.

NO Window Paper Precut Mat-4 ply Archival White Core

Archival 4 ply, White Core Conservation Mat "Blanks"

Archival matting made of alpha cellulose, paper. Bright white core when cut. Because they are manufactured with a top color paper and a core, you can get a black mat with a white core--something not possible in cotton rag mats, Suitable for all photography, prints and, of course, original images. Use the blanks just as they are by "floating" your print on the matboard without a window or use to cut your own windows when you have a small quantitity of special sizes.
