Give Your Art Dramatic Distinction
Selling your art is about drawing the right eyes to it. So, how can you make your painting or photography stand out at a gallery show or art fair? By adding a dash of drama. And one easy way to do that is with our 8-ply mat boards.Measuring 1/8 inch thick, they’re twice as thick as standard mat boards, with an extra deep bevel cut to garner attention. The result is a sophisticated, upscale look that sets your work apart in an elegant, high-value way.
American Frame carries two types of 8-ply mat board. Both types feature Bainbridge’s signature ArtcareTM technology, which actively protects your art from harmful gases and pollutants. They are acid and lignin free, as well as fade and bleed resistant.Bainbridge Artcare Alpharag
These mats are made from 100% pure cotton fiber, which provides extra strength and rigidity. They feature a solid-color core ensuring continuous color throughout the mat.Bainbridge Artcare Alpha Essentials
When framing older items or your favorite pieces, archival mats are key. Like all things Artcare, mat boards feature an alkaline pH that meets all museum protection specifications and a solid color core for a seamless transition from surface to bevel. But because they are made of alpha-cellulose as opposed to cotton rag, the price point is a bit lower.Pair these eye-catching mats with a bold frame for even more excitement, or keep it subtle with a basic black metal frame.
