A mat board (backing board or mount as some people call it) creates a window around the picture. It gives a sense of space and leads your eye towards the art. It’s also a creative way to accent colours and add depth.
Mat boards also have an important function; they help keep your work away from the glass. If a picture is against the glass for too long, moisture can build up and cause your picture to stick to the glass. Not only does this look awful, it also damages the artwork. Our wide range of standard colours and finish options allows you to add a creative flair to any picture.
We can also do custom cutting of mat board to any size frame with custom size window openings. Multiple window openings are an option as well. Computerized mat cutting services are available for intricate designs and precision projects.
