Our 4x5 archival double mats are cut from conservation quality alpha-cellulose matboard. These boards are acid-free and lignin-free, alkaline pH buffered, bleed and fade resistant. The size above is the outside dimension. We will custom cut your specified opening and center it in the mat. To order a double custom cut mat:
- Choose the color of your top, or outer, mat.
- Choose the color of your inner mat. This is the small band of color next to your artwork.
- Pick the reveal, the amount of the inner mat that you would like shown. Choose 1/4" (the standard) or 1/8" (for a finer line of color).
- Enter your exact mat opening size. We recommend you overlap your artwork at least 1/4" on every side. For example a 5"x7" photograph works best in a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" opening. We will cut your opening to the exact measurement you specify.
