Crescent RagMat Museum Mat Board
CRESCENT RAG MAT MUSEUM SOLIDS describes a series of mat boards produced by Crescent Cardboard that we have used in our frame shop for years. This board is better than traditional "museum board" (which Crescent also sells) in that it has a specially sized surface that gives crisper mat openings and allows for a mat board surface more receptive to art media for doing French lines and other decorative panel techniques. There is nothing wrong with traditional "museum Board" for floating art upon or using as a backing board. We just prefer the smoother,harder,"less fuzzy" surface of the Rag Mat Museum Solids mat board. All boards shown in this section are 4 ply thick.
Not only is the surface of the matboard the color you want, but the core and backing paper of the board is the same material or "solid" color. It allows you to use both sides of the matboard for the mat to be cut. Furthermore, you can also use these matboard blanks as backing boards. We've selected five of our most popular colors for you, colors that go with the great majority of items you'll be matting. Choose from White, Soft White, Antique White, and Cream. In case your computer monitor is not adjusted to our photography, the White that we show is not a super bright white. The Soft White is a bit more towards the red end of the spectrum and the Antique White is a bit more towards the yellow end.
Also, we are offering single whole sheets 32 x 40, or cut single sheet equivalents. That is, you can get a full sheet or two pieces 20 x 32, as well as four pieces 14 x 18 or 16 x 20, 6 pieces 12 x 16 or 11 x 14 or 16 pieces 8 x 10, all for the same price! There's no cutting charge built into the cost and you don't have to buy the equivalent of 10 or 25 sheets at a time. Note: When ordering full 32 x 40 sheets, there are additional packing charges to insure that your board arrives undamaged. Most shippers like UPS or FedEx are very hard on large, flat packages.
