"My order came on the day it was reported to come and everything was included as ordered. I was pleased with the overall quality. The top ten 16 x 20 mats had a little bending at one corner but I could still use the mats without any problem. The bottom 25 mats had no bent corner at all.
[The website was] easy to navigate; everything spelled out clearly. The site was never down. [The turnaround time] was the best I've ever experienced."

8 Ply (Archival)

8 Ply (Double Thickness) Matboard

Conservation Quality

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.

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

  • 8 ply mats are double the normal thickness--approximately .096 inches or 1/8 inch thick.
  • Matboard is:
    • Acid Free and Lignin Free
    • Alkaline pH Buffered
    • Bleed and Fade Resistant
  • 45 degree bevels on the openings allows the extra thick core to show dramatically.
  • Bottom weighting provides dramatic effect, if desired.
  • Especially effective when displaying black and white photography or artwork.
