Mats

High Quality Matboard

At MatShop, providing wholesale, pre-cut and custom cut matboard is our specialty. We offer hundreds of colors from major matboard manufacturers such as Crescent, Artique and Nielsen Bainbridge, with a selection of the most popular colors kept on hand for quicker turnaround.

Matting your artwork gives it room to breath and protection from the glazing and frame. For more information on matting, visit our Mat Cuts and Terminology section.
