Art Board is a smooth, pH neutral double weight pressure sensitive mounting board that is perfect for mounting photographic prints or posters. Not available in all sizes.

1/8” & 3/16” Foam Board is a lightweight material made with an inner core of polystyrene foam sandwiched by an outer layer of smooth paper. Ideal for framing. Please note that foam core in larger sizes does tend to warp.

3/16” Gator Board is a lightweight rigid board made with a dense inner core of polystyrene foam sandwiched by an outer layer of wood pulp impregnated with a plastic surface. This fiber veneer provides high structural strength making its stiff, non-warping properties ideal for large displays. 1/2″ Gator Board Mounting is available by special order.

Conservation Fine Art MountThis premium method utilizes acid-free foam core backing board, and archival mounting corners, and/or linen “T” hinges. The artwork is held securely in place but is allowed to move freely to allow for changes in temperature and humidity. Mats are secured with archival adhesive to prevent shifting during framing.

Canvas UV SealerThis is a smooth Luster finish clear UV blocking coating that seals and protects the print from fingerprints and dirt. It is recommended for use on all Artist Canvas that will be displayed without glazing.
