Custom Framing Mats For Your Artwork or Photos

Choosing The Right Mats

Choosing The Right Mats

When choosing to have your artwork or photo framed, the matboard is very important to take into account. Without the matboard, the art could become damaged through contact with the covering glass or other materials, however, the matboard acts as a barrier between the art and the glass. Furthermore, with our wide selection of available matboards, from textured, coloured and even fabric boards, you can greatly enhance anything you choose to frame.

Today, documents of historical significance and fine art prints are produced on paper made from natural cotton fibre. Pure cotton in its natural form has been unquestionably proven throughout the ages, French museums display works on cotton dating as far back as the 1100′s.

We use Museum Core because it meets or exceeds all international standards for conservation mat boards, providing peace of mind for ourselves and our clients. Visit us in-store to see our selection of quality custom framing mats and mouldings.
