100% Cotton Mat Board +
Museum Boards are made by laminating paper sheets together to create 2-ply, 4-ply or 8-ply thicknesses. No filler core is used in archival mat boards offered by Archival Methods. When cutting a window mat the bevel cut will exhibit the same solid color as the top and bottom of the board surface.
