CONSERVATION, Solid Core, Archival, 4 Ply

Part of our value collection, these archival mats are not made like conventional paper mats with a center core with paper added to the top and bottom.  Instead they are made as a 4 ply "board" just like archival cotton mats.  The material on the top, the bottom and the center are all the same material.  You get the luxiurious look of cotton mats at a conservation paper mat price. Click on image to select mat sizes and colors.

Solid Core Mats 4 ply

4 ply Conservation mats at value pack prices

"Solid Core", value mats are mats made like traditional cotton mats; they are a 4 ply board with top, bottom and center (core) the same color and same material, 100% virgin cellulose.  They are approximately .055 thick and are paper mats that have been cleaned and treated to emulate cotton rag mat properties.  All mats are buffered with calcium carbonate which helps resist reacidification.  Further, they use pigmented inks like other archival mats.  Pigmented inks resist fading to a greater extent than water basedd inks used in Standard mats.  All windows are centered in the mat so they can be used horizontally (landscape image) or vertically (portrait image).  Available in two colors, our best selling Gallery White and  a soft, creamy Light Cream.

No Window Solids 4 Ply

"Solid Core' 4 Ply No Window Mats!

Float your image directly on the mat board or cut your own custom sized windows. Or, use these blanks for archival backs.  At these low prices, it makes sense to move up to archival.
