The mat package consists of a bevel-cut "Vivid White" mat that frames the image of your print and a gray or black backing mat to which the print is attached. The print is mounted to the backing mat with t-hinges.
Mats used are manufactured by Nielsen and Crescent. These matboards are made from alpha-cellulose wood pulp fibers that have been chemically treated to eliminate the acids and lignins that normally degrade artwork and matboards (archival, alkaline pH). Lineco gum adhesive paper or linen tape used to hinge mats and mount print (archival, reversible with water, pH neutral).
This matting package makes it easy to place your print into standard-size frames. Make sure any frame you use has UV-protective glazing to protect your print from fading. See caring for prints section for more details.
