Single 8-Ply Archival Mats (Solid Color Core)

8 Ply (Double Thickness) Matboard

8 ply mats provide a very dramatic effect and are 100% conservation quality; therefore, they are often used in museums or galleries for special presentations of artwork or photos. MatShop uses Artique Conservation Matboard.


Note: Matboard core color is the same color as the surface (color goes through the mat)
