Matboards and Backings


We are proud to offer you Bainbridge® Artcare™ mats in any custom size you may need. The matboard in the Artcare™ Archival System is scientifically engineered to work the way no other archival product does.

Only Artcare™ goes beyond the basics of preservation to provide the highest level ofmatboards-01.jpg archival protection available. It effectively shields against the pollutants and acid by-products that fade, discolor and damage artwork.

Alphamat® Artcare™ matboard:

  • Features Artcare™ technology which actually extends the life of art by containing molecular traps
  • Synthesized specifically for adsorption of air pollution gases and degradative by-products of artwork and photographic media
  • 100% virgin alpha cellulose
  • Fade and bleed resistant
  • Buffered to maintain alkaline pH
  • Acid free and lignin free
  • Has a white core

We carry 100 colors of Bainbridge® Alphamat® Artcare™ matboard. Please keep in mind the colors on this website may not be 100% accurate due to variations of monitors and browsers. You may request a sample of mat colors you are interested in using when the color accuracy is critical.

Attention Pastel Artists!

We will build up mats with archival spacing for your pastels so the 'dust' will fall behind the mat. We also can install clear spacers for matless pastel framing. The cost of this additional service can be found on the price chart.

mat-backing You should protect your artwork from the back as well as the front, so we provide you with quality, acid-free foamboard backing in either 1/8" or 3/16" thickness, whichever is best for the particular framing job.
